spatial migration

This interview was held in the latter half of February when the band was changing record companies, leaving their schedule totally blank. Although their last interview for Zy. is a bit negative, you can still feel each member's burning desire to make Nightmare even better.

You transferred to a new record company. Is it like turning over a new leaf?

YOMI: I don't feel like it' a new start for the band.

So you don’t want to change?

YOMI: No, personally I have a lot of things on my mind. But in some ways I don’t want the band to change. I like the present Nightmare. I don’t want to change so much but rather get everything together.

What do you like about the present Nightmare?

YOMI: I like that we are getting closer to regular rock bands in terms of songs and lives, beyond just a visual kei band.

You won’t say “We won’t appear in Zy. anymore!!”

YOMI: No, no, no!! No way!!

Even if you want to appear, you can’t because we’ll stop publishing after this issue. (laugh)

YOMI: I think the recent Nightmare has become cooler and is more appealing to small children and people older than us, and I think that this is a good thing.

How about HITSUGI?

HITSUGI: I’m not sure whether we're starting again, but I feel like it’s getting to be simpler… I don’t think about unnecessary things. Negative thoughts like “If I do this, someone will be like that." When I do something, I don’t worry about that anymore. If I think too much about it, I’ll end up being average, so I think it's better for results to do the pros and cons.

And Ni~ya?

Ni~ya: I feel like we're starting again. I think we’ll make good use of what we have cultivated for ten years and will challenge ourselves with new things.

Is there anything new that is currently challenging you?

Ni~ya: I bought an electric upright bass, I think it’s interesting. Even though I don’t know whether I’ll use it in our recording and lives.

How about SAKITO?

SAKITO: I feel like our past ten years is over, so I want to start the band with a totally pure mind. Like I’ll start again from zero, because if we play with the same feeling I have had up until now, I think we won’t grow at all.

Do you mean you have gone as far as you can in your current style?
