Song of the Week: May 9, 2014



Hover above the Japanese words to read the words as romanized.

Song: "Zephyr"
Artist: Sukekiyo
Album: Immortalis (2014)

苦しめた君の忘れ様の無い
視線は示した全ての答え
傷付け壊し 蒸し暑い夜に
夕日を殺す花火
羅針盤を再びなぞって


I cannot forget you and your suffering
For that gaze revealed all of the answers
Wounded and broken in the humid evening
As fireworks kill the setting sun
I follow the compass once more


Sukekiyo is a Japanese rock band; it is a side project of Dir En Grey vocalist Kyo. With Kyo on vocals, the band, whose members Kyo handpicked himself, consists of former Rentrer En Soi bandmates Takumi and Mika on guitar, piano and drums, respectively, former 9Goats Black Out member Uta on guitar and violin, and former Kannivalism member Yuchi on bass. Sukekiyo recently released their first studio album, Immortalis, on April 30. Contrary to Dir En Grey's heavy approach, it features a softer, more progressive, and more experimental sound.

"Zephyr" is the fifth track of Immortalis. Melancholic and brooding, as so with most of the album, "Zephyr" showcases Kyo's impressive and ranged vocal work - minus the monstrous growls and banshee screams that he is especially known for with Dir En Grey. His high notes, especially highlighted in the chorus, can possibly equate to a lullaby - for those already grown, that is. Let's not forget the rest of the band; the guitar and drum work provide a suiting melody to this song, and they harmonize well with Kyo's vocals.
