Rebellion (Jacket B only)
Solid heart (Jacket C only)
Ok, for a debut under the avex label, this song really represented D in a great way. I love the strings opening and the hardass guitars that filled out the song. Obviously ASAGI sounds a lot better than in the indies days because he’s not exactly doing the freaky growl thing. The guitar solo was one of Ruiza’s best. Definitly the song to kick start the era.
2. Musou Hana
Musou Hana though was basically almost as rock hard as “BIRTH” but some parts are pretty sweet like ASAGI’s talking parts during the crazy band parts. Sometimes the band gets a little too flustered and things get drowned out. It’s definitly a hard track, I’ll give it that.
Rebellion only appears on the Jacket B version. I think Rebellion continues this crazy sound and drives it even further with this arrangement. Oddly enough, I really enjoyed this song a lot because it’s maniacal but played it off well with ASAGI’s interesting vocals. The chanting though to me sounds like gibberish, it might actually be, but I like it. Even Ruiza’s solo was awesome. Good song.
4. Solid heart
However, on the Jacket C version of the single, we get Solid heart and what a track it is. It does sound a bit more tame (in v-kei words). It’s still fierce and has the growly chants. ASAGI’s vocals is strange because he’s like holding it and dropping tone, even the chorus has it still. It shows he’s got some interesting properties and honestly it’s one of the bands coolest tracks. Love it!
D’s debut under avex (as odd as that sounds) was pretty cool. I really love BIRTH. The strings and hard sound was just so epic and amazing. Rebellion and Musou Hana were pretty good, but if I don’t listen to them enough, I’ll forget them pretty fast. Solid heart though was good though. Another awesome track from the group.
