They have a long way to go to reach Destrose levels.

Yeah. At this point, I think it's safe to write Bridear off as finished.

The Bridear lineup was stable for 5+ years. The longest Destrose ever managed to keep a lineup was ~15 months.

Yeah well we said that after that Dear Bride single and they ended up releasing a ballsy EP with their heaviest song ever.

At the risk of sounding shallow, Bridear is at least getting better looking. Mitsuru and Kai were homely. Their replacements are a lot prettier. Now they have to deliver the musical goods.

I hated Helix myself. I thought it was a huge step down from Rise (which is easily their best work IMO). I guess this might be an unpopular opinion though.
Occasionally, I write Western and Japanese music reviews.

I mean, the "prettier" new members could easily be horrendous at their instruments and then you're left with a band spinning its tires and accomplishing nothing. I don't think merely being pretty would be a good trade off for lost talent. Wink

Yeah, while I certainly don't mind when a musician is attractive, I'm not going to base my support on their looks.

Based on her twitter I'm like 90% sure the drummer has never played anything that isn't pop
This is a bad timeline

What this doesn't scream metal to you?

Those drumsticks are almost as big as she is there.

After Dear Bride popped up, I said that I was hoping it was a fluke and the EP would be the usual Bridear stuff, and it was.

Misa, Mitsuru and now Kai have left in the last 18 months. It's just not normally a good sign for turnover like that.

As far as looks, I thought Misaki was a step back from Misa, but then I'd thought Misa was the most attractive. None of them are/were unattractive, though.

Kai leaving ruined my week.
