A Guide To VAV

VAV – Very Awesome Voice

Soooo since there were some people who did like my idea of making a guide like this I thought ‘cool let’s do it!‘
I hope this can help people finde out about them and maybe motivate some of you do give them a listen and some love!

Ok so first some general facts;

They had their debut in 2015 (still noobs) with 6 members and are under AQ Entertainment, which is now A-Team Entertainment. I’d like to point out here, that this company provides ENGLISH SUBTITLES for us (!!!!) which is pretty damn awesome.The group underwent (is that a word) a couple of lineup changes which I will explain further when I come to the members individually.
A Fun fact: they sometimes have exceptionally loud MALE fanchants which is hilarious to me.

Fanclub: Vampz (debut concept was vampires. Yeeeh.)

We’ll get to the number one most important part now

THE CHOSEN ONE (Part 1) 🌙

A/N: Hello everyone! This is the beginning of my new series and I hope y’all would enjoy it! Just some side notes, my OC is heavily inspired by Evangeline Samos of the ‘Red Queen’ series by @vaveyard , one of my most favourite authors, as well as the ‘MAMA’ MV by Exo themselves! This dystopian series has a heavy theme of feminism and gender equality, a topic which I felt needs more exposure! Enjoy, my babies, and remember to leave feedback when you’re done reading! x

Genre: Dystopian/Supernatural/Action/Smut in later parts

Word Count: 8825

Synopsis: In the land of Exotica, thirteen kingdoms reign. Thirteen different types of bestowed powers, thirteen different types of abilities, thirteen different types of gifts. In this world, everybody is bestowed with only one ability. So what happens when The Chosen One is discovered to possess all thirteen powers at once?

‘Survival isn’t a race. It’s a dance’.

I, Princess Kwon Syona, was born with the bestowed gift of being able to manipulate metal. It’s a deadly power and I wasn’t always a master at it; in fact, I’d always struggled to accept it when I was younger, unable to comprehend the fact that such an unassuming young girl like me was gifted with such power.

Over the years, I’d observed with wide-eyed awe as metal pieces bent to my every will, creaking and groaning with a mere flick of my wrist. Steel knives slice through air whenever I command them to, aluminium foils twisting and turning into dangerous daggers and harmless silver jewellery morphing into weapons of my choice.

ONE OK ROCK Skyfall review

It’s kind of my personal policy to review only stuff I legally own or am entitled to e.g songs / MVs the artists have made available. So, I hunted down Skyfall to listen to.

The general consensus among fans is “Skyfall is a reminder that OOR hasn’t really forgotten how to rock". I have to say that I do agree with that after listening to this single. Not exactly their “hattrick" Zankyou Reference + Niche Syndrome + Jinsei x Boku but it does lean towards that era rather than 35XXXV + Ambitions.

1. Track 01 Skyfall

In terms of songwriting, melodies and arrangement, Skyfall is refreshing to me because I finally get to hear Tomoya’s drumming again which sadly had been buried in the production on 35XXXV + Ambitions.

Tomoya blew me away the first time I heard him play back in 2012. His timing is impeccable and he’s incredibly versatile. He’s one of those musicians who has his own innervoice which he expresses through the instruments he plays. You can give him any genre or any instrument and he will colour it through his playing. Sadly he was reduced to a minor character on 35XXXV + Ambitions. Sorry, but the producers made him sound like he could be replacable by a drum machine. The effects they employed on those albums have made this talented musician sound so generic like a pre-programmed machine …… that’s not a compliment in this context.

But Tomoya is BACK on Skyfall \(^o^)/

Vocals-wise, it’s a scream fest with the 4 vocalists Mah, Masato, Ken and Taka trying to outdo each other XD. Confession, I obviously listen to Crossfaith more than Coldrain or SiM because I can only recognize Ken’s screaming out of all of them. I do think Ken’s voice is sexy. So, I am clearly biased there XD What I dislike is the vocal effects used especially on Taka’s voice. This song could have recaptured what OOR once was had the vocals been left raw and the rest of the production drier.

Listening to this, one can’t help imagining saying to the band, “You don’t need those American producers, collaborate more with your musician friends back home instead!“


2. Track 02 Right By Your Side

The song rumoured to be dedicated to Taka’s little brother Hiro.

It surprised me when it started off with uplifting arrangement and melody. Not the melancholy I was expecting.

Just like Skyfall, this song also leans more towards the pre-USA OOR in terms of the musical arrangement. Certain parts actually sound like direct rehashing of The Beginning where Toru’s clean guitar lines play on top of Tomoya’s drumming ….. which is great news! I’m not kidding about this.

Vocals-wise. I don’t know how redundant to keep saying the vocal effects ruin it. The raw emotion I wanted to hear, especially in view of the song possibly being for that special boy Taka cares about, is a missed opportunity here.

What a shame that Taka’s voice wasn’t left raw for these lines ….

“It’s easy
Caught up in little lies
Believe me
I’m gonna realize ”

…. because that part is the most melancholic melody-wise and we all know Taka has the ability to make this sound dramatic.

This song would have achieved its true potential had it been treated the way The Beginning was. More of the band. Less of the technology.


3. Track 03 Manhattan Beach

I smiled when I saw on the credit that this song is the fruit of Taka & Ryota’s labour. This song is more of the new OOR compared to the other two tracks.

It’s pleasant with soothing bass lines. Hey, a bassist-in-love made this XD I can hear how this song might have been the result of these two bandmates having spending time in America and absorbing the various sounds from the radio including the older AOR bands from the 80s.

If your taste is the old OOR with the heavy punk rock sound, you might not be into this one BUT if you enjoy bands like RADWIMPS, then you would like this. At certain parts, the vocal delivery and melody really are reminiscent of RADWIMPS.

If I may say so, I would call this the harder version of RADWIMPS.

My verdict

Overall, I’m happy OOR delivered Skyfall to us. Kind of like little blessings from the sky after a dry spell.

While I don’t regret buying 35XXXV but I started questioning myself when I liked only one song from all the official MVs that OOR released from Ambitions.

Taka is still one of my favourite singers. But his ongoing quest to emulate that “sound of the Western bands I listened to when I was young" makes me wonder whether he ever realizes that his singing ability is a gift that won him respect and fans’ adulation in the first place? Why would he throw himself into the oversaturated market of retouched and edited “singers" that are out there now?

Skyfall = still worth my money spent and more than a hint of the band’s past sound

BUT

the heat that would have been there has been dampened by unnecessary electronics & effects. Dry this up more and we might get the fiery OOR with the big catchy chorus we once knew. Maybe not quite the old OOR but somewhere close to that and where they are now.
