Check my latest review:
Chinese visual kei band Silver Ash has returned from their eight-year hiatus with a vengeance. Their new single REBORN contains only one song, but that’s all the band needs to make their intentions clear. They have evolved, and they are ready to take on a global audience.
“REBORN” has an ambient beginning that crescendos with the increasingly pulsing drum beat. Just as the song sounds like it’s going to be a techno number, the heavy guitar riffs break through. Ah, there’s the rock band many have grown to love throughout the years. Despite the clichéd inclusion of dubstep with the guitars, Silver Ash has found the perfect balance of electronica and rock.
(I think this may be the first time I can completely understand a visual kei band’s comment without looking at the subtitles.)
