———-What kind of song is this?
This is actually the last song I finished.
———-I see, that’s somewhat surprising.
Isn’t it? I had another ballad ready to go with the nine songs I had written.
I had outsourced the lyrics for this ballad, but I couldn’t get it done in time.
So I decided to put the ballad on the next album, and to write another song on short notice.
———-This song fits in well with the album, doesn’t it?
Well, it was written by the same person.
I still had a few songs’ worth of lyrics in stock, so I compared the lyrics to our stock of riffs and chose the lyric ” Kimigayo Seminar” .
———-That’s a dangerous-sounding title…
Just barely out, maybe.
I thought that the theme song’s psychedelic synth riff would go well with the lyrics, so I started working on it.
———-It’s a pretty catchy synth.
I was going to put the ballad in the ninth song, so I thought, well, this song should be the ninth song, too… but it became unbalanced.
So I thought it wouldn’t be bad to have an upper followed by a song with some momentum, so I brought it in as the third song following “No-Face”.
———-YOSHIFUMI, who wrote the commentary, also praised this flow.
I am grateful for that.
But you know, it was the last song I wrote, so I had to come up with a melody that didn’t sound like any of the other nine songs.
So there are not a few strange chord progressions.
———-Like ” Left-handedness is corrected”?
I also wanted to give the lyrics a military feel, and I think it worked out well.
———-The guitar solo is great.
I know, right!
I especially like the riffs that come in between the solos, and they are quite long.
———-The lyrics in matter… are they okay?
Hmmm…well, I hope the world is a place where this level of expression is possible, Poison.
As for the lyrics, well, to put it simply, they make fun of netouyos(Online Right-Wingers).
From the Internet to TV, there are so many netouyos out there.
It’s an eyesore.
The reason why they spring up like this is because there are people with a purpose behind them.
———-It’s eerie because so many people are working with the same will.
You see it in the lyrics of “Timers”, don’t you?
“In the meantime, the one with a purpose is steadily getting ready, chak-chak-chak-chak. (from the song “River of Strife” by The Timers)
———-That’s a classic, isn’t it?
Anyway, it’s just poking fun at the ne’er-do-wells, so please listen to it with a light heart.
———-There’s some kind of narration in the middle of the song.
There is a famous netouyo account on Twitter called “Fuka-Kurose,” who lost his account when Shinzo Abe left office.
———–That’s easy to understand.
It’s just a mess of false rumors from that account, spliced together in a messed-up order.
So it doesn’t make sense, and the grammar is messed up.
But on the other hand, what they were saying was messed up before I put them together.
That’s what I wanted to convey.
On the lyric cards, the letters are printed in one point size so you can’t see them, so if you have a microscope, take a look .
———-Normally we can’t read the letters with a microscope.
You might be able to see at least ink particles.
———-I don’t know what I’m talking about.
Anyway, give it a listen, Stay Metal!
