      Hizaki - CD "Maiden Ritual" - wonderful 5

      I love the Music of Hizaki. J-Rock and the Visual-Kei is a perfect mix. Hizaki is always new projects. Their concerts and videos are art.

      HIZAKI's Best Work To Date 5

      As an ardent, passionate fan of HIZAKI, I was not disappointed with this release. Even though all but one of the songs have been released before ("scarlet-Inst. version-" the lone new track), the music is worthy of a second purchase. "Ritual (Inst. version)", "Lunar Eclipse (Inst. version)", and "Requiem (Inst. version ~ReMix~)" are expertly re-recorded with full instrumentation (that means real drums!). The new arrangements give the old songs added life, greatly enhancing music that was excellent in the first place. Overall, I would have to say that the best part of this release is the lack of vocals. Fu~ki's vocals on the original "Madien Ritual" were weak to be kind; his voice is not that great and could barely keep up with the tempo of each song. HIZAKI's virtuoso guitar skills are at the forefront of each track unhindered by uninspired lyrics and anemic vocals. This is where the album really shines. In conclusion, if you did not purchase the original "Madien Ritual", purchase this album instead. If you have HIZAKI's prevoius release, I still recommend this EP because of the stellar musicianship, full instrumentation, and lack of laughable vocals. Highly recommended!

      After listening to Dignity of Crest I was impressed with his compositions so i wanted to hear more of Hizaki. This album though short is quite amazing! The instrumentals are great! I recommend it to all jrock fans! ^_~
