Man, Killed in Sadness Sounds Awesome

This is a wacky little coincidence: Yesterday, while I was passing through Twitter for a minute, I spied a Killed in Sadness promo tweet for their upcoming second one-man, and thought that I’d ask Jul — arguably the Western world’s leading expert on PAC IDOL projects — if they’d shared out anything lately.

The song is fine. I love, however, that Ayaka is using a fucking knife as an avatar for her idol group. Continue reading
