Even if the world is covered with darkness, I continue to sing.

This is the second album after a three year hiatus by Films, the dark fantasy music unit whose members remain a secret.

Films debuted in 2010 on Noble, the Tokyo-based music label which has sent many Japanese electronica artists such as World's End Girlfriend and Serph all around the world. The mystery composer and contributing member of Films has received many awards in music competitions and international film festivals, and is admired by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Nobuo Uematsu and Takeshi Kobayashi, famous Japanese musicians.

Some of the Japan's top talent in post-rock, modern classical, and ambient music such as Yuki Murata and Takahiro Kido (members of Anoice) and Daisuke Kashiwa, participate in this album as the players and the mixing/mastering engineers. In addition, RAKU-GAKI supported Films' world as the art director and the web designer.

Films' second album is graced with two females' beautiful and fantastic vocals in their original languages which are put on classic music made from piano, violin and viola, destructive rhythms and grandeur orchestral sounds.
