    o.O interesting....

  • Posted by ninetales · 62,286 Jpops · 2 years ago  

    Oooh, this is intriguing! Is Satoshi using his real name in this band? It's so odd to see a different set of kanji in place of his usual stage name. I have to admit that I like the songs' arrangements a bit more than Giru's, especially in terms of the guitar (more rock than metal, hehe). Here's hoping they continue with their activity alongside Giru!

    Wow, sounds interesting although I was not expecting that o.O What about Girugamesh though, are they still going to be making more songs or is Satoshi going to try to be active in both bands?? I'll check them out later ^^
