DEATHTOPIA is GLAY's 54th single & it was released last week on 3rd Aug .
This was released 7 months + since GLAY's previous single G4・IV .
Desutopia was 1st released digitally on 9th May which topped various online charts at the time of release . This was picked to be used as the 1st opening theme no. for the anime Kuromukuro & it was composed by guitarist HISASHI .
There're 7 other songs in DEATHTOPIA & the 2nd song in the tracklist Chonsoku Destiny received a video , just like Desutopia .
In addition , Chonsoku Destiny was also used as the 2nd opening theme no. for Kuromukuro after Desutopia .
The other 6 songs are live tracks which were recorded from different concerts over the years & all of them were composed by HISASHI as well .
GLAY's latest single DEATHTOPIA packs in plenty of bang for the buck . I enjoyed Desutopia at the time when it was released digitally so I'm pleased that it made the physical single cut as it deserves so .
It would be better if Chonsoku Destiny was a ballad to contrast Desutopia but aside from that , this's another solid single coming from 1 of the most respected JRock groups .
