Funny because they were at their best ripping off late-era 9GBO, their only fans are Monochrome Heaven oldheads, and their new music sounds like a cat getting strangled.
Know what? I used to play Dark Souls and listen to Nirdvandva on a loop, until i realized most of the good songs are FLATOUT rip offs of 9GBO/sukekiyo songs.
Could you name then any song to song rip off ? Like which exact song of IX is which exact song of 9GBO/sukekiyo ?
In my opinion there are similarities as there are similarities within any sub-genre in any music. Saying that something is a rip off is a very strong accusation so I hope you have something in mind to prove it do you ?
From their 1st EP:
- 白蓮 is too close to “aftermath” by sukekiyo, its unreal.
- 壮美なゆらめき bears more than a striking resemblance in it’s chord progression to 9GBO’s “sink”.
- 有終の美 lifts it’s chorus directly from “Helena” by My Chemical Romance
- 夢現 is sukekiyo’s “aftermath/in all weathers”. Again.
- 暗礁 is just Rinkaku with worse programmed drums.
Just a few for you, kitten.
Edit: the new single so very wants to have the density and atmosphere of a sukekiyo song. It’s too bad the vocalist has one setting, and it’s Self-Titled Era 12012 Wataru. The mix is so shrill. None of the instruments have room to breathe, and the treble is cranked to the max.
I’ve no stakes on this race, but got curious and went to check. And omg it’s unreal how similar it’s to aftermath
just a copy band haha.
Only 白蓮 reminds me a bit of aftermath after listening to both of those, but not to the point I could even consider it ‘rip off’. You understand the difference between rip off and inspiration do you ?
壮美なゆらめき bears more than a striking resemblance in it’s chord progression to 9GBO’s “sink”. - those songs are so different that it’s obvious you’re trying to find those alleged “rip-offs” but it doesn’t go too well
暗礁 is just Rinkaku with worse programmed drums. - I won’t even comment that
有終の美 lifts it’s chorus directly from “Helena” by My Chemical Romance - it’s a common chord progression and it’s even used very differently in MCR. You’re trying very hard don’t you
With this “rip-off” definition you can call every band a rip-off band.
the vocals haven’t improved in over 10 years unfortunately
The sound/melody is honestly not bad but the vocals are weird af, not gonna lie.
*Was that a white dude?
*What is the vocalist wearing on his face for most of the pv?
*Why does the vocalist sound/sing like that?
found the singer’s ghost account
Oh shit, you think? Either way, i stand by what i said.
