The first video shows the history of Aku no Hana and the re-mastering process, while the second video is a digest of the DVD & blu-ray.

After a quarter of a century since its birth, the disk that inscribed its name on the history of Japanese rock, will be reborn.

It’s been 25 years since one of the most popular rock bands in Japan, BUCKTICK, released their chart topping album named “Aku no Hana (惡の華)”.

The story of the February 1st, 1990 released album starts with the preceding single from the album, which was revolutionary, yet achieved the number one spot on the Oricon charts, and it ends with a collection showing its own unique view of the world, by employing yet another revolutionary style; a video album, that would also rank at number one. It was an epoch-making and unique work for the mixture of both video and album, in a series that has influenced various musicians, and continues to bloom through the years without withering.

In celebration of the 25 years since those works, which rightfully deserve the title of “masterpiece“, the record label then, Victor, has decided to sell them once more. BUCK-TICK will be releasing a digitally re-mastered version in the form of a luxurious boxed set, titled  “Aku no Hana CompleteworksMemorial Box“:
