The Theory For Our Revenge 'OBORO'

REVIEW: Japanese multimedia art duo make a great first impression with their mix of industrial, trap and operatic pop The following is a paid for review and post, via humanhuman (see below).  It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially  when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as this first offering from The Theory For Our Revenge is.
