    Pre-orders are up on Hora's website for both Resonate and Immortal Verses. No tracklists, ugh. Kaya's promo twitter showed off the new looks. I really hate that album cover though... that watermark colour font really ruins it. Personally, the new SS has been mostly disappointing... unpopular opinion (?) but Hora needs to flog some sneakers and buy some new synths.

    Not even that, I think he just needs to try a little harder with the ones he has.

    I think most of the new songs are not as good as the old material, BUT I still like it. Sleeping Madness and Apocalypse however are awesome and two of their best songs (IMO). I'm acctually happily suprised they still deliver good material, considering the Velvet Eden flop :P Really looking forward to the new Hora album.

    Did anyone else notice they didn't mention the signed cheki anymore as bonus?...

    EDIT: about the cover, I totally agree. The font is a bad choice. Kaya's pose though, makes me think about New Vogue Children :3

    Sleeping Madness was great, Ark wasn't bad either... My main critique is that Hora's compositions are repeating themselves and just don't bring anything new to the table.

    I noticed that! They're offering a comment cd for international fans and I'm like... no thanks lol.

    Honestly though? I haven't found a lot to like from either post-reform BH/SS/VE for various reasons (poor production & kiwamu* got involved / missing the mark / dada is an arsehole), but I'll see how the mini-album goes. I've always had a soft-spot for kaya and i'd rather give The Gays© money anyway.

    *off-topic, but what happened to him anyway?

    I didn't, damn! And I already paid for my pre-order XD
    Still want that comment CD though. The last one was hilarious!
    Hora could also throw in a bonus with his solo CD.

    Manneking wrote:
    Yep, I totally disagree :lol:Some of my favorite SS songs are the new songs (Lilith, Sleeping Madness, Apocalypse, Hakobune). Maybe it's because I myself am a relatively "new" fan (I didn't even know about them before their come-back).

    That watermark font is hideous though. Just why oh why. It's a bit sad because the cover photo itself is awesome.

    I decided not to pre order Hora's because if you order more than 1 they tend to be cracked :P This has been one of the first in a long while not to come with a bonus...

    I was thinking of ordering mine with a cheki. Its kind of nice to have something one-of-a-kind (and it's only 1000¥ extra).

    Also I'm curious; anyone have any idea what Immortal Verses is a reference to? Because it can't be this :lol:

    Edit: it's 5 tracks, same as ROH, according to their website and Google Translate.

    Yes, I've gotten a cracked one too and I ordered it within Tokyo. The odd thing is, it was so neatly packed that I don't understand how it could have broken.
    So Hora's albums usually do have a bonus? Just my luck. First time to pre-order and no bonus. Argh.

    Yep, it should be a "new look" and Hora has thrown a piece of fabric on top of his usual black outfit. I'm wondering if it's a special brand of "Hora cool" or just lack of motivation.

    Fixed it! Basically it was a poetry scam and the anthologies were called Immortal Verses, I'll quote a bit from the page for those who don't wanna click the link:

    As far as I know the first time he offered it was with TYRANT, then with COCYTUS and DESOLATION BEAUTY. So not that many.
    Hehe, I've been suspecting the damage might be from the supplier to Hora.

    Maybe if the pre-sale does not go so well, he'll throw in a bonus ::hora::

    What an unfortunate coincidence! XD My first thought was that maybe he'll turn his "Immortal" into a SS song. But I guess that will never happen because it has been done before, with Velvet Eden :P

    Kaya posted a tracklist on one of his blogs. they've popped up in some live appearance set lists on his twitter too:

    looks like we're getting all new songs! I've ordered a copy but it'll probably l*ak by the time it arrives. Anyone else heard it yet?

    I went to both Osaka and Nagoya live and bought my copy from the live venue. I was hoping someone else from this forum went too and already wrote something about the new mini album and the lives, because I really don't know how to write a music review/a live report :P But I may try to recall and translate some of the talk between Kaya and Hora. Coming soon: How many sneakers does Hora have? What does Hora look like without make-up? Who made Kaya's new costume? What kind of underwear does Kaya wear?

    The only thing I can say about the new songs is that... I like them! :lol: And there's two songs with Hora's death-voice! ::hora:: Even though... I hope it doesn't disappoint you, but "Lotus" is really the SS version of Hora's "Babel". It seems a bit lazy, but then again, it's an awesome song live.

    I'm calling it right now, there's no way Hora admitted to the full extent of his sneaker hoarding ::meev::
