Needless to say, I'm quite excited about this, because I thought 'M-Ology' was their best album since 'Peep Show'. I hope they continue the upward trajectory.

Here's a 40 second sample of 'sheeple':

"Sheeple?" Do Japanese people actually use that term? Laugh

WAKE UP SHEEPLE

Sheep are a pretty big part of Merry's visual representation, so I'm guessing Gara read the term somewhere and decided to use it as a term of endearment for their audience or something Wink

I wonder if the lyrics are going to be like the Japanese version of Havok's Conformicide. Tongue

CD Japan says this:

Visual kei band Merry brings a mini-album with six tracks (subject to change). This edition includes a bonus DVD with live footage taken from their concert held in Ebisu in May 2018.

No tracklisting as of yet though.

Short sample:



Gara's vocals are VERY loud in this, but it sounds very Merry.

Tracklisting and covers are up, I'll go ahead and add them to the OP right now. Will also add the short fragment of 'sheeple' that was put online around November, because that one unsurprisingly is on the release.

It's easier to stomach when you realize sheep have always been a big part of Merry's visual shtick for some reason Wink

Slightly longer trailer:



Certainly a reason for me to be looking forward to this one! Looks like it's all melodic Merry all the time, leaving their heavier leanings at home.

Also... Check out how they spell "Release" Laugh
