One of the interesting discoveries of the day is Gothic Marionette. This circle is formed back in 2009, with composer Yuki being the architect of the group. It has released a demo called Rain at M3-24. This year, they will be releasing their 1st album, titled Nemesis. The sample track on the website is a blend of majestic choir and narration.
The other interesting new circle is 世の漆黒-トキノシッコク- (Toki no Shikkoku). Their style leans more towards the rock-ish side. Their main objective is to compose original songs inspired by anime and light novels. In the past, they have produced their own image albums for light novel series Bungaku Shoujo and Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria. The leader of the circle is Kurumizaka Iwori, with bassist Sakuya and executive producer Marialips. Recent addition to the circle is Valhalla's vocalist Yuuri. They will be releasing an album titled 二輪葬 -A Longinus Hermonia- (Nirinsou -A Longinus Hermonia) at M3-26.
