CHIKA RADAR #27: 幻想ばっどえんど (Gensou Bad End)

On this new episode of Chika Radar we will get to know more about the metal idol group 幻想ばっどえんど (Gensou Bad End).

Welcome back to your favorite idol-discovering column, IdolOnChaos’ Chika Radar! Idol groups still popping up during these hard times is a very good sign, and we can’t miss the chance to talk about them. Today we are going to find out more about a group we mentioned last week on this website thanks to the release of their first MV: Gensou Bad End.

The unit, which unveiled its members last July and then debuted in August, presents itself as a duo of dark-dressed blond girls holding a noose in their hands; I don’t want to make assumptions about them, but I’m quite sure that this is your average sugar-filled idol group. Sure, Akuma and Urara may be very cute, but that doesn’t mean that their music is as adorable as their looks.

Luckily, as I said before, they recently released their first MV for “Tōkyō Shōjo”, which allows us to clear up any (non-existing) doubt regarding their music. So let’s take a look at it.

And… surprise surprise: it’s a very metal-sounding song! Don’t tell me that’s what you expected, I’m not going to believe you.

I must say that the vocals of the verse remind me a lot of Wagamama Rakia’s “Rain”, except this one is definitely less refined and more straightforward, or more metal in other words; that aside, “Tōkyō Shōjo” is quite enjoyable, featuring some gloomy and calmer parts among the aggressive ones.

They also have another single called “Zettai Watashi Shugi” which you can listen below and a third one on their online store, so I guess they had a good start. Hopefully we are going to get lots of good music from them in the future!
