    @cain88 as you can see i do like DEG, Deathgaze, Sadie etc. but if you look closer, you can see that i like ballads and energetic songs(like DEG's Machiavellism, Jesus Christ R'n R or Deathgaze's BLOOD or THE END) but when it goes to real metal like this two songs(Enduring Faith and Bleed Tears) i can't even understand what Ai's singing he just continue screaming and that's all. I really don't like this kinds of songs. Maybe choruses in these two songs are good but guitar riffs are too heavy for me ;-)

    About what I said earlier, Enduring Faith and Bleed Tears ARE actually pretty good, The Underworld is still crap. @lolacat20100, if you think that way, why are you listening to Deathgaze or even Dir en grey then? If they are too hardcore for your taste.

    The Underworld is amazing. A piece of art.[2] but I can't say the same about another songs in this single. Maybe someone who likes death metal(or something like that) likes this songs but I REALLY don't like them -__-

    THE UNDERWORLD is a cool 'soft song'. The single isn't perfect, but all songs are varied and ok ^^

    So you can actually understand what Ai is singing? And about The Underworld, it can't be more generic nor it is any more "deeper" than amends or dearest, which are much more better by the way. The Underworld is disappointing release.
