摩天楼オペラ (MATENROU OPERA) is a new band signed to Sherow Artist Society.

According to 苑~sono~, the combination of 摩天楼 (Skyscraper) and オペラ (Opera) in the band name represents the mixture of modern and classical styles that can be heard in the band music.

The band was founded by vocalist sono and drummer yu in late 2006, but could become active only in early 2007 after the disbanment of Jeniva. The official announcement came on February 23rd 2007 via yu's blog. 摩天楼オペラ debuted live at an event at 浦和ナルシス (Urawa NARCISS) on May 4th 2007, and released on the very same day the first single alkaloid showcase. 摩天楼オペラ toured Japan and played at several events and in late October signed to Sherow Artist Society, an indipendent label run by Versailles KAMIJO. At the same time guitarist Mika and keyboardist Karen announced their departure from the band after the event at 池袋CYBER on November 17th 2007. The new members (anzi on guitar and ayame on keyboards) were first introduced on December 23th at a Sherow Artist Society event on December 23th 2007. The first single featuring the new lineup, titled 瑠璃色で描く虹 (Ruriiro de egaku niji), was released on March 5th 2008.In March and April 2008 they went on their first European tour opening for Versailles and in May their first album GILIA hit the stores. -- Visual Kei Encyclopaedia - a Wikia wiki

This one sounds really good. I hear another ballad, #3 ♥

I've been liking their music so far. They haven't disappointed me yet :)

Last Game: 8/10- Best track imo

ダチュラ [Datura]: 7.5/10- Bit dragged out/repetitive. Nice intro though

天上への架け橋を [Tenjou he no Kakehashi wo]: 8/10- Easy on the ears, bit boring, but nice.

Leaked early. Overall solid release, but room for improvement.
