After the release of a few singles, they released their first full-length debut album in March, 2010, entitled Royal Order , which is widely considered as one of their best releases. This was also the last official release with the original lineup (after FRAGILE their bassist 美央 and drummer eve left the band . The official reason was explained as “musical differences”, though there has been speculation among fans that Mio and Eve left because they didn’t want to change the bands sound from their distinctive metal sound to a more softer sound). They then recruited a new bassist 緋遊 and have since released two singles, a new mini-album, an “erotic” album, an “erotic” single collection consisting of 7-types and a live DVD.

    Can't say I loved the single but as with everything else with and after MRC it's a step in a better direction. Also I will totally flip my shit if they actually come to the UK.

    After I heard the あっ無情 cover I am sure they should make more covers in the future. It is perfect. The new single is nice.

    No Froggyman you aren't. Thanks for that link, I wouldn't have known the song otherwise :D How do you like their newest single?

    I'm not crazy in saying they've totally sampled Black Fairy from the Silent Hill 2 soundtrack in Dorei to Kubiwa right?

    I, too, have been their fan ever since they first started back in 2008. I really like their older songs and can't stop wondering what their music would be like if Eve and Mio never left the band. But I've grown to like their newer songs too, and I've found many awesome songs among them. Bara~rose~ is a good example, it's probably my favorite Lycaon song. I think they've never lost their originality, their style has just evolved into something very different from what it used to be when they first started. Actually Bakane lift up my hopes a bit. Even though the mixing and production sounds most of the time like shit, the songs are quite good. MSC still has some songs I can't stand, but Bakane and doguramagura are both good songs.

    @corpsedancer, now you see why Eve and Mio left the band a few years, their sound is nothing like it was before. :/ I've been listening to them almost ever since they formed and it's true what their bio here says, they really had a distinctive sound and are a lot softer these days. Now they just sound like any other band out there, which is kinda sad when you know them and out of the blue it's like they're a totally different band. lol I still listen the new releases, but I never get my hopes up because I know their not going back. lol
