let’s talk about my favourite artist, KALAFINA（カラフィナ）and FICTIONJUNCTION
I don’t know why I’m so obsessed with them. I’m listening their song since 11th grade, at the end of 3rd semester because one of my friend 😀
At first, I got a recommendation from my friend to listen their song. She said to me that they’re awesome, have a great voice-combination and harmony.
Actually at the time I got the recommendaton, I already had some of their song from my senior (I even thought ‘what is kalafina? a name of the band? I won’t listen their song! the name of the band is weird’). Well, the VERY first song I heard from them is Lacrimosa, and it’s very cool (FYI, I didn’t watch anime Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler). Since then, I search their song and following their updates.
The most genre they use is Pop-Chamber, but sometimes, they can bring another genre, from Rock genre (Magia) until middle-east style (テトテトメトメ／te to te to me to me)!
there are the members of Kalafina !
but now Her voice isn’t as good as on 2009-2010, seriously. I think she has some problems with her voice 😦
….and I just realized that she’s so cute, much cuter compared with Keiko!
she’s my inspiration to join a choir in campus 🙂
well, I know most of their song has a ‘dark’ mood but their harmony is the power of this group! my recommendation songs from them: Storia, 追憶、未来, moonfesta.
