    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    A band that has unfortunately been largely forgotten over time, Japanese hard rockers Angela II released two full albums and one mini-album/EP before disbanding in 2005. Although they were associated with the visual kei underground, their sound is absolutely not reflective or similar in any way to the scene. Instead of having plain metalcore or pop punk influences, Angela II instead had a hard rock styling with occasional brushes with classic heavy metal elements as well. Some tracks on this album, "Kirameki (煌), actually stray from that and instead attempt a ballsy alternative-like, much more mellow style. All-in-all, a very interesting release from a band that definitely deserved a lot more love during their day.

    Aside from the lots of modern elements here(riffing, some angry gang hardcore style vocals and ultra fast drum beats), there are lots of pure metal with balladesque melodic parts too!! The musicians are very talented and the whole outcome it's amusing!! R.M., many thanks for offering this unknown to me album!! CHEERS!! porosimetal
