Glad to hear there'll be a new album after all.

Can't say I like the new all. It's way too long, and I can't stand the vocal style TAKUYA is using.

"IMPACT" is a nice song! Are there any previews of the album?

^They're available on, though I'm refraining from listening to them at this point, since the album will probably leak within the next day or two.

All right, I just finished my first listen to "0 Choir".  I think the best way that I can describe my opinion of this album is "intrigued".  Since while the release itself is pretty strong (I don't really expect less from them), it's the avenues that they might explore that are teased that are most interesting to me.  Tracks like "ENOUGH-1", "KICK ga Jiyuu", and the closer and title track "0 Choir" show that they've far from tapped all of their fonts of inspiration - they just need to take a more complete step towards them.  Still, I hope they don't lose what they exhibit during songs like "a LOVELY TONE" and "Arubeki Katachi", since it's the quirks in those two that make them who they are.

To discuss the album itself a bit more, there's a lot of sax all over it (as has become characteristic of UVERworld these days), but that's not a surprise considering they've just gained a permanent saxophonist.  I think the album really does come together as a whole, though it has this ... kind of "oppressive" feeling that seems to hang over a lot of it.  It might have something to do with their focus on harder sounds for most of the record.  Still, on the whole I'd call "0 Choir" a good transition album for UVERworld and I'm excited to see where they choose to go next.

The band's been pretty quiet as far as new music goes, right? It's a far cry from their earlier days when they were releasing an album every year. (Not that I'm complaining, I like when bands take a little more time between releases).

Anyhow, despite what I just said, their official site announced a new song, "Collide", will be used as an insert song for the movie "Shibuya Swan".

They are doing lives constantly, they are very active in that aspect. I like it when bands take some more time, too, but sometimes it's just the label wanting to pump out as much stuff as possible (Ikimono-gakari is a good example, they really need a break to come up with something new... they are very stale now). I think there's a new live DVD/BD coming in March for their Kyocera Dome live too.

Another listing on generasia has UVERworld releasing a single on [2015.05.13]. I haven't heard anything, but with "Collide" having been announced, it doesn't seem so far-fetched.
