CHIKA RADAR #21: 激情リフレイン (Gekizyou Refrain)

Our Chika Radar is back with another discovery: let’s get to know 激情リフレイン (Gekizyou Refrain), a new metal-oriented idol group with their debut MV.

Guess who’s back? Yes, it’s our beloved Chika Radar. It’s been a while since the last article of this column, so let’s take the chance of the first MV by 激情リフレイン (Gekizyou Refrain) to get to know this new group.

The group is made of five members: Sarai Kotori, a screaming-growling metalhead; Kirishima Yuzu, a cat-lover who also enjoys architectural design; Hanoa Juriy, a girl who likes art and plays the electric guitar; Blackberry, another screamer who also plays guitar and synths (and also likes Italian, good choice); and Saihate Chiru, a human calculator I guess. Here is their music video, where you’ll get to see ther skills.

Despite being at their debut, this song shows that they are really competent and backed by some good musicians. As you probably guessed by the presence of two screamers, the music is 100% metal-oriented featuring powerful electric guitars, breakdowns and all that heavy stuff we love; together with it, the usual loud idol synths add a more melodic aspect to the track. It’s a song which sounds both catchy and heavy, a duality reflected also in the vocals which range from a very memorable hook to some aggressive screams and growls. All this elements combined make a very enjoyable debut song and a good start for this group.


The first EP of Gekizyou Refrain will be released on the 1st of November and will be available at the Ank Music Labels store; meanwhile, let’s enjoy this awesome MV.
