Translated the text for anyone who wants to read it!! I think its a really nice article. The Bewitching Beautiful Birthday Night
Tour with sworn friend Kozi also announced at MdM's latest live!
Madou Gathering The Moon's 7th Night 2010.3.19 SHIBUYA-BOXX
It was the 7th event known as the Madou Gathering.
A fun night which has become customary to the fans is established once a year as a commemoration live for Moi dix Mois Mana's birthday.
With that said, This day was divided into two parts; the first part being "A Home Party in Mana-Sama's Room".
As Mana came out in pajamas and dog ears everyone rose in a bright cheer. Happy Birthday was sung in chorus, cake candles were blown out, and then there was a rush into a present raffle and question corner...even with the audience members there was a very relaxed mood.
This time the band members also composed a "Happy Birthday" song, but when "Gloire dans le Silence" came on, it was then time for the start of part 2 of the Moi dix Mois live.
Up until then the mood had shifted from calm to the grounds all at once heating up as the symphonic black metal sound roared.
But the fierce devotion died down while the aesthetic mid-number "Deflower" interposed, and the stage became exquisite.
Together as one the audience did the ritual-like poses to "dispell bound".
Continuing on to "The Sect", the live prospered as the European Melodic Death Metal lead into a number with contrast of a violent screaming verse and a build up of drumming technique.
Then, a simple beat extended with a sound that mounted to "Agnus Dei," which shot for a different kind of charm and meaning.
For those who know about Mana's career up until now, it seemed to be an "intimate song,"* or a number that was somewhere between nostalgic and pleasant.
The light of glow sticks swayed left and right during the last song "Pageant", and the firm dark adorning world of Moi dix Mois built up the night.
The album is steadily being prepared and on the way. Sworn friend Kozi was announced to revisit in the "Deep Sanctuary II" tour, and Yu~ki has decided to make a guest appearance.
With three members of MALICE MIZER officially coming together, this is something we can't wait for...!

*I used the word "intimate song" because the Japanese word used as a description of the song doesn't have a direct translation, but it has an emphasis of something bearing emotional involvement to the noun, or in this case, the song being written about in the article.
