Lets not beat around the bush here. If your favourite bands are Anaal Nathrakh and Fleshgod Apocalypse, then there is a 99% chance that Epsilon by Blood Stain Child is not going to tickle your fancy. Why? Well, if you couldn't guess from the anime/video game style of the front cover, BSC are very poppy, very melodic, and oh so terribly accessable. But, does poppy, melodic and accessable always mean bad? I hope not.

Japan has always been a country that has produced interesting metal bands, from the drum'n'bass/industrial cluster bomb that was the sadly missed Mad Capsule Markets to the unrelenting insanity of epic/jazz/circus black metal of Sigh - while BSC are in no way as revolutionary as either of the aforementioned, they do manage to do things on their own terms and carve out a nice little niche all for themselves. For the most part, BSC play an energetic, colourful and catchy crossover of dance/rave with heavy J-pop leanings) and extreme power metal. The keys and vocals are at the forefront, with dancy electronics and catchy female singing giving the band their pop feel, and the guitars have quite a Norther/Bodom extreme power metal feel too them. They also use growling, although the growling is a bit distorted, presumably to lend to the electronic vibe. Sounds like it's time to pass the barf bag huh? well, strangely, no. For one, the band aren't trying to kid anyone. There's no crass attempts to be heavy or bro0tal or anything else they aren't. BSC are pop-metal and they're damn proud of it. Yet, without a whiff of pretention, they also manage to avoid the two collosal pitfalls that have claimed the crediability of so many other bands that have tried unsuccessfuly to straddle accesibility and heaviness.

Having said 'great album' i need to point out that i listened to this album as a newcomer to the band, i havent really checked out any of their other material, so in that sense my review is probably very biased. What is love about this album is the combination of both death and clean vocals, combined with both a heavy and also electronic (best word i could think of for it) sound. After listening to this album all the way through a few times i had to get it, im very glad to have it as part of my musical collection. Again, i must point out that im a newcomer to the band and havent really got round to checking out their earlier albums, so there is no way i can compare it to any of the bands other material, though i am aware that they gone through some lineup changes. I am sure that any real fans of Blood Stain Child, who have been with them for a number of years, would love this album.

A little bit about the ordering is due i guess. The product arrived within a day of ordering, and was in good condition. It went onto my computer about 30 minutes after being pushed through the letter box - with no faults on the album sound wise. Also, it was cheap! compared to some other CDs ive bought that is.

In my opinion easily their best album yet. They've really honed and developed their sound in this one, taken the best elements from their previous albums and merged it with the influences of their newest band members.

Highlights:
- Really unique metal sound that gives a nod in the direction of their earlier albums but isn't afraid to try something different.
- Sophia's vocals really make this album. In my opinion her joining the band is a massive step forward.
- Mix of the darker and lighter elements (Aki's synths and Ryo's aggresive vocals mixed with Ryu's uplifting guitar solos and Sophia's powerful and melodic vocals).
- Lyrically it's a lot better. For a band that sings mostly in English it's great to have somebody like Sophia in the band with a better understanding of the language. I felt this was a problem in earlier albums.
- Instrumentally brilliant album.

Cricticims:
- Sometimes Ryo's vocals seemed out of place in the uplifting setting of a few songs, at the same time there's a lot less of him and a lot more Sophia so perhaps to get a better balance they could have included a few darker songs like those found in previous albums.
- The name 'Blood Stain Child' does seem a bit incongruous at times. The overall sound is more of a nod in the direction of power metal than some of their previous material.

Tried to write a balanced review, which is difficult because I love it so much!
Would definitely recommend getting it if you don't already own it. BSC are easily my favourite metal band to come out of Japan and they're one of very few metal acts throughout the world that aren't afraid to do things differently and their unique sound is a tribute to that. That said, this album is technically a big step forward for them. Looking forward to future releases!

its a change from the band they were but they are hardly the first to do that, more trance music, more female vocals and less screaming, if you like in flames for example but wish they switched their formula of screams and some clean singing to mainly clean singing and less screams then this could be up your street.
Its the quality of the songs that stand tall here, its class more or less from start to finish, the final song isnt the best but heck thats nearly a complete album of kooky, quirky, strange dancey things laced with great metal at times. brilliant
