How it sounds
Like a group of teenagers with expensive electronic gadgets who do not know if they want to play electro-pop or metalcore and so they play it all together.
Like metalcore, that is, but with many samples and distortions and with a refrain that reminds me of pop for twelve years old or more correctly …
As a Japanese anime title song.
Why listen to it
Because it has nerve and freshness and sometimes very good riffs.
Because you are over 25 and you do not know what the hell this is and you do not want to know.

North America, Europe, and East Asia
