dir en grey | sustain the untruth (2014)
It’s been a trek through the waste lands being a Deg fan these past six+ years, and time will tell if 2014 is merely an oasis or the life-giving sea, but one thing’s for sure, and that is that “Sustain” is the first Dir song in eons that hasn’t negatively affect my bowels or given my ears cancer.
There’s a hummable melody and actual songcraft! Wherein decipherable NOTES and CHORDS and also humanlike BEATS are the main part of the song and not just addenda to the distorted wall of flatulent death that was Kyo’s “vocals” and Toshiya’s “bass” and Tweedle-Die and Tweedle-Kao’s “guitars” in that long ago of Dum Spiro Dummer.
I unbelievably made it through this whole single in one sitting without feeling the need to call a rape hotline or check if my soundcard was malfunctioning. One regrettable twinge of disappointment arose when Kyo did the gutturals in “Gaika (live)”, a song that rests on the tail end of my positive memories of this one fantastic and possible fantastic again band (and are those vocals true to the studio recording?)… but otherwise, a completely listenable set of songs. It’s disorienting.
Anyway, here’s to glasses of ice water in hell, let’s hope there’s more to come…
Will the hand of crock save all people from their sins in Sphire-Croid?
In crock we trust.
Ridiculous engrish aside, Sphire-Croid is my favorite Rentrer en Soi album. The one-two punch of the manic Iconoclasm followed by the beautiful Secret Scars is where ReS peaked.
