Schwarz Kain, a band we introduced to you back in July 2016, has been on a roll. In the span of just over a year, they’ve released two singles, a mini-album, a full album, a couple of DVDs, and they’ve contributed to a couple of Starwave Records albums.
Most of their releases are sold in limited quantities; their full album sold out completely, so they released it a second time just a few months later. The same has happened for their first mini album “Hakuhyou no Hana” (薄氷の華); it completely sold out. So, on February 7, 2018, they’ll release a second press edition. Here are the details:
Schwarz Kain “Hakuhyou no Hana” – 1,620 yen
1. Gareki no Bohyou, Kishin no Aoki (瓦礫の墓標、帰心の碧き)
2. Ikite wa Kugai, Shishite Hai (生きては苦界、死して灰)
3. Ai suredo Munashiku, (愛すれど虚しく、)
4. Higagoto no Me Kuite nochi (ひがごとの眼 悔いてのち)
5. Yamiyoi ni Naku (闇宵に亡く)
1. Gareki no Bohyou, Kishin no Aoki PV (瓦礫の墓標、帰心の碧き)
Schwarz Kain releases are not available on CDJapan. Instead, you’ll have to check the Starwave Records site for pre-order links, or find a way to purchase it at CD shops around Japan.
The band may have ended on a slightly lonely note after losing guitarist Keisuke on December 18 (yes, that’s why there are only four members in their current band photo), but we hope that 2018 brings only more success to Schwarz Kain.
