Hey, a preview that isn't some random person's fancam from 2016:

Huh, I never actually heard the song before so I didn't realize it was so metal. Kamijo should stop abusing the whole "flailing drums" thing for the intro of every song. Sounds pretty good nonetheless but I'll wait for the album. Tongue

But... but I love my flailing drum intros. Cry

Sounds really good, I'll have to watch for this one too...

I don't think he abuses them quite as much as Yoshiki used to do Tongue

As for the song... Not bad! It kind of reminds me of the first part of 'Symphony of the Vampire' - the vocal melody sounds almost like a copy of that - with an intro inspired by 'Philia' thrown in. Also, this range is tailor-made for Kamijo. He should stick to this more often.

I will also be waiting if it appears on an album or not. You never know.

Hah, that Hatsune Miku collab single is up on HMV. Now that one probably won't be on the upcoming album. Wink

Well, the full single is up on Spotify now if you want to listen to the whole song. I agree that it sounds a lot like something from Symphony of the Vampire, but that's not a bad thing at all. Smile

I'd be very surprised if this doesn't end up on the album, especially considering that the song has been one of Kamijo's live staples for a while now, but I guess stranger things have happened.

Also...the Hatsune Miku single is an alternate version of Sang's title track, so technically it is on the album...just not with Miku. Wink The B-side will probably be exclusive, though.

Oh no that's not a bad thing at all. 'Symphony Of The Vampire' is by far my favorite thing he's done outside of Versailles, so it would be weird if I complained about it Smile

I know, I was just agreeing with you Smile I didn't mean to imply that you were complaining lol.

Well, it would be a lucky guess if you were, given that I'm Dutch and I do like to complain a lot... And I often do about Kamijo Tongue

But like I said: if he employs this range, I don't find him anywhere near as annoying as I find him in his most melodramatic moments. I'll never be a fan, but this is quite pleasant to listen to.
