Track analysis:

1 – Flawless 

Hard-hitting drums explode through the soundscape, welcoming the listener to this aggressive and dramatic tune.

Shredding guitars dance around this despair-filled soundscape, with the bassline adding the final punch to an instrumental that will easily leave a mark.

The verses are explosive and intense, with a big focus on its bass sound, with the drums leading the way.

The chorus cranks up the tension, bringing in fast-paced, distorted guitar riffs as Junta Terashima powers his way through this performance with the most straightforward voice.

Rain kicks in and you’re greeted with what is the climax of all these bottled-up emotions.

The bridge is devastating, with the guitar screaming in a technical solo as the drums and bass solemnly march their way forward.

The tone continues to be dramatic and final as you go through the song, reaching the outro.

Throughout this song, Junta Terashima delivers what is easily one of his best performances. The emotional range, the poise, and charisma during the performance, not to mention his consistency throughout as he goes for those robust, open vowels in the chorus.

“Flawless” arrives to rock you to your core, tapping into your emotions in weird ways with a gripping and devastatingly bleak instrumental.
