Versailles: Noble
by Stefanie at 1:55 am EDT, Aug 23, 2008

If you're into J-Pop, particularly Visual Kei, you might want to check out Versailles' first full-length album, Noble (the follow-up to the EP, Lyrical Sympathy). The linked video is a live performance of "The Revenant Choir," which is more on the pop side and not exactly my favorite track on the album, but it's the best live video I could find on YouTube.

I took a chance and bought a first press of Noble with the bonus DVD. Now that I've had a chance to listen to it for a while, it's starting to grow on me. I can hear influences from Judas Priest ("Antique in the Future") to Testament ("To the Chaos Inside" - the album's best track) to contemporaries like Moi dix Mois ("Aristocrat's Symphony"). Musically, the band is pretty solid, and they're able to straddle the fence between pop and metal without making either style seem out of place on the album. Oh, and their stage costumes are adorable!
