[Single] Girugamesh – COLOR

2010年 7月 20日

Hello! I realize that we haven’t posted in a while so here you go. This has been out for a little while now, but I wanted to get some more listens in before reviewing it.

COLOR starts off with vocals right off. They’re harmonizing already, so I kinda got caught off guard a little the first time. Anyway, they proceed into a heavy rock melody and go into a very upbeat theme. This song is a bit interesting in the fact that it keeps switching from lighter (major) rock to heavy (minor) themes. If someone weren’t paying attention much they might think that this was a couple completely different songs. Still some pretty cool stuff though.

Sunrise…. oh when they do experimental stuff. This doesn’t suit them at all. The fast percussion and dance-like guitar parts all just add to the theme which is like island dance music. Ugh, just not a good thing to hear from a band that is known for heavier music… or any band really. The guitar parts are pretty active, but the beat just keeps it in island theme. No matter what else happens in this song, to me it still sounds like something from the tropics.

Flower is the last song up. It starts with the band playing the main theme. The guitars do some pretty cool stuff in this song. If you pay attention to them you’ll hear them play a variety of riffs and chords. The vocal melody is okay, nothing too special in my opinion. I think that about covers it for this song….

Overall: We get some interesting guitar parts in all the songs. Good balance, but I think that they could have shortened the songs to keep it more interesting. They really need to not experiment.

  1. Hooray! Thanks for posting! The single was just okay for me. I’d like to hear giru get back into that harder VK sound from their older releases. This was a little too tame for my rocker soul. Nice work!


  2. You should do a review of Namie Amuro’s new single, Get Myself Back/ ??? – can’t remember the other song.
