Got an email from HMV, so its up for pre-order.

This is the product description, in case anyone wants to translate it:

多人数制プロジェクトとして生まれ変わったガールズ・スチーム・メタル楽団 FATE GEAR の3rd Full Album!

Vocalにはアコメタル大作戦でYouTube 100 万再生を迫る勢いを見せる大阪のパワフルなシンガー大山まきを筆頭に、Dragon Guardian, Dragon Eyes 等に参加しているManami、人気サークル「エミルの愛した月夜に第III 幻想曲を」の荊- いばら- をゲストに迎え、さらにUnlucky Morpheus,hollow mellow 等で活躍するJill もレコ―ディングに参加しFATE GEAR 初の生バイオリンを収録。Drumsには大阪のガールズデスメタルバンドG∀LMET の元メンバーidyako も参加している。

収録曲の「Chained-Destiny」は、指原莉乃プロデュースのアイドル =LOVE の作曲に携わっている加藤大和が作曲。

<FATE GEAR>
東京を中心に活動中のガールズ・スチーム・メタルプロジェクト。
高崎晃、TAIJI(ex.X JAPAN)、BABYMETAL、SCANDAL などと競演歴のあるMina 隊長(Gt.) を中心に2015年6月よりバンド形式で始動。
2016年、スクウェア・エニックスのスマホゲーム楽曲制作や、グラブルフェスライブ出演、世界最大級のメタルフェスWacken Open Air 出演、植松伸夫率いるEarthbound Papas の米公演サポートアクトなど国内外でも活躍するKurumi(Key.) が加入。
2017年、Kurumi がコンポーザーへ移行し、後任キーボートとしてYuri を迎える。多人数プロジェクトとして活動の幅を広げ9月に行った目黒鹿鳴館でのワンマンライヴはソールド・アウト。

I am glad to see Yuri, Erika, and Haruka listed as members instead of support.

I do seem to remember the announcement of Kurumi's leaving as including a comment about her continuing to work on compositions for the band.

This is an instance of ghostwriting I'm actually ok with. This may also be the only instance out of any band I listen to where an ex-member stayed around to keep composing for them.

I wonder if this will be a concept album too?

With the various vocalists it looks like they'll have, it would certainly lend itself to having a story with multiple characters. I could dig that. Especially if it's a continuation of OZ - Rebellion -.

Heck, now that I think about it, the title 7 Years Ago even sounds like a continuation...

And it's pre-ordered. Smile

I like Destrose but I don't know the members' history in details.
When did Mina have a chance to play with Akira Takasaki and Taiji?
#6
the title of the album is because 7 years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake back in 2011
the concept for this album is Rebirth

Ah....that's very interesting. Now I'm even more curious.

Idyako contributed as a guest drummer, apparently.

And a guest bassist too

This album, and the band, come to think of it, is just getting stranger and stranger.
