Its good to see this band do so well. The new album is different from other things you hear but its certainly not horrible. This time around seems they really explored a new area and shown that in the album.

I saw them live and they put on an excellent show. I was surprised to see how many fans that were there. You have to remember that they are a Japanese band for their English to sound that good is pretty awesome. It's nice to see how this band has grown and it really isn't horrible.

yes, i have to agree that this album is so far their best. The vocalist is very versetile, he's interesting to listen to.

Now listening to: Moonlapse Vertigo - Opeth

Versatile is barely scratching the surface, although i have to say some things they do annoy me. I do like certain individual songs though.

Korndogg stole my words precisely. I saw them on Family Values, too. It was quite bad.
There are really good Japanese bands - take for instance - BORIS or Gallhammer. Dir En Grey is just horrible.

Reminds me of a Goth-ey Deftones maybe? I know the singer is japanese, but the lyrics are so "engrish" as to make no real sense. Perhaps theres a poetry to it that escapes me. Just not my type of music I suppose.

Let me get this straight. They suck because you can't comprehend their talent.

Why don't you find another hobby rather than troll a band whenever they achieve something simply because you don't like them. Besides, they must be good considering they beat Unearth and CoF.
