About the album:
We’ve released one EP & album so far, so this album will be our third release.
We don’t change the concept and aimed to further improve the level while making it understandable as Heterogeneous Andead music immediately after listening. There are songs with more progressive elements in this album, and we also take on new challenges such as triple time.
It also features more guitar harmonies and the synthesizer’s sound is more emphasized than before. The performance of each part is also more energetic. This album has only 8 songs, but I think that all the songs are good quality to be the lead track of the album. In this album Yusuke Kiyama worked on mixing / mastering, so all the sounds are our ideals.
01-The Void Sacrifice
02-Fragments of Memories
06-Mirror of the Lie
