If there is a possibility to create another topic about it, it would good. Because I think that is an important topic.

Feel free to create your own topic if you want to discuss it.

Just chiming in here—way late to the party—but now that I’ve received my copy and spun it a bunch of times, I have to say I really like it. Since I’ve only listened to it in the car, I have no idea which tracks are which, but the album as a whole is exactly what I would expect from a 9GOATS/KEEL and D’espairsRay/Angelo style mash up. A bit of a dream for me since they are some of my favorite bands.

It’s nice to hear so much screaming from Ryo again; which was pretty absent in KEEL. Its reminded me that he has a voice for this kind of band. My only complaint is that the tracks are a little same-y, but overall it’s great release with almost all quality songs.

Regarding the artwork, the album cover is so highly detailed that I have to wonder if that was created with AI as well? I know Ryo is a graphic designer, but I’ve never seen him create artwork on that level. As a designer myself, it is annoying to see, but it looks good ultimately so I can’t really complain.


Awesome. I agree that some of the stuff feels a little samey, but I really love a handful of the tracks and think it’s a good first effort. I’m interested to hear how they evolve.
If you figure out the names, I’d love to known what your favorite tracks are.
I really like Heart, butterfly, and love that never ends.
The only one I really didn’t care for was blood pin.

I think Ryo probably designed the artwork, as it looks more like a 3D photo manip, and doesn’t have the weird texture most ai stuff does.

I hope you’re right! I will make sure to upload the CD at some point and report back.
