The title of our new album is "Darkness and Starlight". It was named by our drummer, Hanyuda Arata. Don't you think it's a good title? It's a good title for the TBM, the band which plays from the somber hell's music to godlike heaven's music(Is there such a music?). And it's from the lyrics of the English version of "Maria and Draco", which is one of the main track of our 3rd album.
Jacket design is also fantastic, isn't it? We asked Mr.Minaba for the paintings, following the second album. He painted the scene of Maria & Draco playing the opera on the stage, inspired by the title "Darkness and Starlight". The beautiful opera scene colored by the rainbow color! The beautifulness of the jacket makes me want to get the LP size of it.
So this blog will continue for 2 weeks, and the member and the staff write the article in rotation. Please look forward to hearing the inside story of the Black Mages!

I met a lot of TBM fans in Chicago, too!
