Who needs DÄLLE when you have ryo and fucking Karyu. Now I wonder what’s up with the status of his solo project.

CALLED IT! I love how this is kinda random but also kinda not–Gullet and D’espairsray had some twomans and taibans together. D’espa’s older sound wasn’t even too far from gullet, so I’d love to hear the two of them reviving that early 2000s goth metal thing.

D’espa and 9goats collab? Mad hype!

But the real question is, Tsukasa Enka collab when?

Takeo ( Angelo, ex Pierrot ) and Naoki ( ex. Kagrra ) will join the band as session members for lives shows ,if I understand correctly.

This line-up is freakin amazing. If I was in Japan I would definitely go to the shows.

This should not be a session band… it’s so cool

They just upped the live performance of their new song “HEART” on Youtube!

Sounds pretty nice.

I can actually stomach Ryo in this, and he sounds great live. Karyu is so obviously in the zone with this composition, I’m hyped.

(LOL @ pre-recorded drums, but the keyboard guy doing that single metal clack thing live)

Agree. Not big on DALLE but I love this!

I think this is such a dull composition, but it’s my fault for expecting something like gullet/old despa.

My ‘brilliant’ idea is that S’espa should reform with a relationship with a slight role change and Tsukasa can sing enka. Ahem.

The beginning reminds me so much of a Despa song but I just can’t remember the name.

final call has similar structure, but karyu’s compositions have a trademark sound. this could be an angelo song.

Yes he kind of has his signature as a composer. But to hear Ryo in these kind of tracks is the surprising and interesting part.
