C76: Fourth Albatrosicks album 「STAR CRACKER」

No no, this isn't a story about a new American Idol type show for Southern audiences. Coincidentally, I am in Alabama right now. Rather, this is a quick reminder that Comiket 76 saw the release of the fourth Albatrosicks album, since they consider the short-lived (and not exactly well-received) 「e」 an album as well.

But if 「e」 left you with a sour impression of the IOSYS superband, then by all means do check out samples from their latest release. A song like 「Cosmo Phoenix」 greatly shows how ARM's latest eroge theme songs have started to influence his Albatrosicks compositions as well. 「Walpurgis Sabbath」 is borderline Gothic Lolita / Yousei Teikoku, interesting! But the real kicker is the encore, 「残念ミラクルアンセム!」... 俺のヨメ!! They totally went there. I'll save my complete impressions for the forthcoming review.

Their third live "voyage" has been scheduled for September 12th 2009... but wouldn't you know it, they sold out Studio Cube 326 in less than a week! Good on them.
