I don’t know, man, but I think that maybe the reconfigured Bonnou Paradox — up to a member strength of five, including dualing harsh vocalists — might be ready to make a bigger splash in the scene. To whit:
Do you pronounce “U’n'” as “Un” or “uh-nuh” or /deathgrowl or something
Here are the lyrics, which read well enough but also encapsulate everything that drives me crazy about Japanese writing:

Bonpara is such a strange unit for me. I mean, they aren’t strange in the way that I’d usually describe an idol project; this is more of a exactly-what-is-this-and-how-much-do-I-like-it thing. In fact, in a lot of ways, they always felt like as logical an inheritor of Guso Drop’s (very) general legacy as much as anybody, from the sound on down, and might be in a position to pick up that mantle if they could gain good traction and build the same hardcore wota cult around themselves. There are differences, of course — there always will be — and they’re in a very clouded, saturated loud idol world in which many, many units (including Burst Girls!) want to do the same thing, but Bonpara has always felt like they had a great combination of factors working for them.
Their first one-man is happening in March:
DESEO mini with VILLAGE VANGARD

Make some waves, Bonpara. Make the year yours.
