MALICE MIZER’s tenth single, and their fourth release after quitting major label Nippon Columbia, and becoming independent again under Mana’s Midi:Nette label. The single contains an instrumental version without vocalist as B-side.
This is the third and final entry in a trilogy of singles that would be included in the “薔薇の聖堂” (Bara no seidou) album.
This is the first ever MALICE MIZER recording/release with their third and final vocalist Klaha, who was introduced to MALICE MIZER’s fanbase through this single. He was still not an official member of MALICE MIZER during this release. Instead, he’s credited as an “additional musician”. He’s also not included in the photographs or music video of this song.
After releasing just gothic, neo-classical, instrumental music on the previous three releases, MALICE MIZER went back to its rock sound again, with beautiful twin guitars, drums, and a vocalist; Three key elements that were missing from the previous three releases. But it does mix this rock sound with the neo-classical, creating a stunningly colourful genre mix that is unique to this band.
This song also got a music video, but it is only around 2 minutes long, as the song is cut short. (Budgeting reasons probably). Unlike the previous two singles, the music video didn’t release on any VHS during the time of its creation, but was instead released two years later, as part of the “Cardinal” DVD/VHS.
