This is a band I actually have personal experience with, as I was loosely connected with the vocalist which led to my family getting this record in a demo tape, pretty early. (early as in back when Covid wasn't a thing, so real prehistoric). So, yeah I may have a vested interest in this record, but even then, I hope that my review is still valid. And so, I'd say that this record is pretty good. Its really hard to shelve what this album sounds like, it gives me vague impressions of Wilco, ... read more

10 minutes of pure breakbeats, screeching electronics, scant hip hop beat, and loud ass metal. Its quite a brief record, and the songs are pretty short, but I really did enjoy what little was on this EP. The songs are boppier than grist, and punchier, and I appreciate the relative simplicity of the record, as although stuff like igorr and clown core may be multi genre experiences that are hard to shelve, those records can come off as directionless, which is something this record doesn't seem ... read more

I've kind of always wanted to give more korean music a fair shake, and I guess this record showed why that was the case. The band has a pretty enjoyable sound, they're pretty heavy, for korean stuff (which doesn't really tend to be heavy, due to like prohibitions and stuff), and meshing that with a more westernish poppy electronic sound (as compared to the more eccentric sound of j pop). I also do enjoy the pairing of the male uncleans and female cleans, and although the combo isn't exactly ... read more

Albums that have anime openings in them, 13/50

Anime it opened/ended for: Keep your hands off eikouzen

This record is...Pretty unusual, Easy Breezy did not prepare for me for how diverse the backgrounds to these rap tracks were, ranging from indian folk music, an accordion I think, to dance track. Rap isn't really my thing again, but chelmico has an interesting enough flow, and back it up with enjoyable enough accompaniment. The scant acoustics bog down the experience for me a bit. but its ... read more

Not really huge on power metal, but I do enjoy the decently heavy technicality, and fair amount of guitar technicality. This doesn’t win me over as much as their past discography, which had more of a bite, in my opinion, but this record is pretty okay power metal nonetheless.

Manacle, aka the group that I will know only as the post-graduation project of necronomidol idols (and one aibeck idol, but whatever), is a group that's pretty darn hard to pin down. Their stuff is mostly kinda spooky, industrial at times j pop, with some anime opening ish tracks lumped in there for good measure. Mahoroba, however, is warranted a special mention, given its black metallish instrumentation really reminding me of necronomidol, and kind of what I was expecting the group to sound ... read more

About

Reviewing albums no one cares about. Alternative Idol nerd. Also, kinda sad my modern music taste consists of black and roll and weeb music tbh.

Also, RIP, Chick Corea. What a legend.
