HYDE’s Video For “MAD QUALIA” (Japanese Version) Hits #7 On VEVO’s Top 10 Metal Videos This Week

“’Mad Qualia’ the latest [single from HYDE], will be a knockout on tour: black fuzz guitars and stuttering drums, HYDE racing out of that fury with rousing sing-along effect in a mixed rush of English and Japanese that suggests Metallica, Mötley Crüe and mid-Seventies UFO crushed into the same hooks. ‘Zipang’ will be a killer on the road too even without the record’s guest pianist, Yoshiki: a dreamy neo-classical ride that blows up with Queen-like pomp. And while ‘Fake Divine,’ a Top 10 Japanese hit in October, has familiar soft-loud dynamics and raw vocal anguish–Foo Fighters have perfected that combo over 25 years–HYDE’s single has an explosive class of its own. The pit will go crazy in the chorus.”

–David Fricke, ROLLING STONE (April 2, 2019)

HYDE, the vocalist from top Japanese bands L’Arc-en-Ciel and VAMPS, has announced the release of his new CD album entitled anti which will be available digitally worldwide on May 3 and physically on June 19 in Japan.
