Next month will see vocalist Hazuki of lynch. release his solo album Souen-FUNERAL- on September 16. The artist himself has already uploaded five videos from his performance earlier this year at MIELPARQUE HALL.

Now to top it all off, we’ve now been treated to the monochrome music video for the breathtaking second track PHOENIX.

The captivating self-cover, originally featured on lynch.’s album GALLOWS as the final track, finds Hazuki surrounded by a circle of percussion and strings. This space allows him to pace about—do a little dance—and sing his soul out alongside the classical accompaniment.

It is matched with a grandiose atmosphere and abstract visuals play that transitions into flames apt for a PHOENIX. However, what makes us shudder in excitement is the unexpected scream and the powerful transition from clean to harsh vocals to end it all.

Hazuki comments that this is an exciting but scary moment for him, as he has performed in bands for the last 20 years. He explains that the band format is restrained but that makes it beautiful. This solo project extends beyond the limits with infinite possibilities.

Vocalist Hazuki:

This is about “instruments that I use having no limits”.

For me, who has performed for 20 years in rock bands only, this was unknowingly exciting, close to fear.

A band is something in which its members, people, and parts are restrained, and that’s a fact that I think is beautiful.

This solo project is beyond these limits.
Absolutely no restriction, infinite extending freedom.

I dove into that ocean.
In that ocean of freedom, will I drown or will I swim with elegance?

Please, confirm it with your ears.
