I mean, I don't think there's a single song in Malice Mizer that I outright dislike. My favorite period is early/Tetsu, but with Gackt they put out a lot of their greatest works too, and yeah early Gackt is great as it still has that Memoire sound in tracks like Shi no buto or Tsuioku no kakera. Shi no buto's lyrics were actually writen by Tetsu iirc. Such a shame there were a lot of songs with Tetsu that never got proper studio recordings, but luckily there's a lot of bootleg live shows and recordings on youtube, back in the late90s/early 00s finding those kind of things was next to impossible if you weren't a hardcore trader of rare material in Japan.
Apres Midi is one of my favorites! I actually own the uruwashiki/apres midi single, as well as Memoire. Also have the Beast of Blood, Bel Air and Gekka singles, used to have Garnet but sold it to a friend. That's all I have of physical Mizer music, but yeah, Sadness was only released on tape and buying those tapes is pretty expensive, although maybe not as much as years back. Maybe it's just me but I think Mana/Malice Mizer's popularity declined with time. Their demos pop up every now and then on japanese auctions sites, but you've got to be careful not to get scammed with a fake.
Also agree Matenrou is amazing, basically proto-MM.
I like the band of Matenrou's drummer JUN, called Hisui. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZecSTKFlYi8
>>61632269 Totally agree about the vocalists and while Bel Air is not my favorite song by them, it's on the top 10 for sure. Amazing guitar work by Mana and Kozi.
>>61632541 Nice collection. I've got Bara no Seidou, Merveilles, Memoire and the Garnet single. Pretty jelly of the uruwashiki/apres midi and Beast of Blood. I really want all the three last singles, as post-bara no seidou is probably my favourite of their periods.
I still enjoy malice micer, maybe it's a lot of nostalgia involved but who cares? Every time I started a thread about them it ended in lol anime. People don't give them a chance. I like the production/action and you don't see it everyday.
It's a really unique band. But it was always hard to find people to discuss about them that weren't just fangirls that lusted after Mana-sama or Gakuto. But I actually met a few Mizer fans that ended up being pretty interesting people with good tastes and not the typical otaku/fangirl.
