The GazettE never fails to impress their worldwide fan base. They are back with an entirely new album as well as a brand new music video for their recently released song "Ugly." Being two years since their last album was released, the band is back with an in-your-face CD, including a blood drenched PV putting the seven deadly sins in a spotlight of their own. The band has also adapted a new and darker makeover along with a heavier general atmosphere thus concieving the unique new album "Dogma".
"Ugly" includes heavy screams that remind the fans of the band's older music, which most of us can agree we absolutely love. It's the perfect video that surpasses our expectations. From headbanging lives to blood showers, it's all there. Expressing extremes such as gluttony, envy, and pride, the video puts these words into action. It shows a bold, but seen before, side of the band. Their talent goes a long way with this one leaving fans in shock and in love.
This video quickly became one of my personal favorites, and it seems like one of the most popular among new fans and old. The tone of the song itself is angry which creates a great overall image that perfectly matches the harsh vocals blasting with emotion. The Gazette has switched over to a more Gothic vibe since their last few releases. The members have all since adopted new looks as well. Using darker makeup and clothing, they've created a more mysterious tone for themselves.
The PV expresses most of the seven deadly sins. This includes a clip of a nun committing adultery, an obese man metaphorically killing himself with food, and a young girl crying with the word "envy" written on a mirror in front of her. These are just some of the scenes featured in the video that make it well worth watching. I find these pieces add a very artistic and emotional touch to the general atmosphere.
Each scene is also throughly expressed by introducing blood as the main form of action. This makes the video violent and somewhat gory helping it become beyond interesting and dark. Overall it seems the Gazette is back and stronger than before. Their talent is truly never ending.
Since Youtube isn't allowing the video to be seen in the US, here is a convenient link to it on Facebook
