Imperial Circus Dead Decadence (インペリアルサーカス・デッド・デカダンス Inperiaru Saakasu Deddo Dekadansu?), sometimes shortened to ICDD, is a Japanese doujin black metal band formed in 2007 in Fukuoka. The band currently consists of Rib:y(uhki) (lead vocals), Hull of VAGUEDGE (bass), and KIM of ANOTHER STREAM (lead guitar). Their songs are performed in Japanese and the fictional "Taihaisekai" language.
Formation, First Full Length Album, and EP (2007–2010)
Imperial Circus Dead Decadence was formed in 2007 in Fukuoka, Japan.
The band released Sangeki no Chi ni Sekiku Somatta Ai to Zetsubou no Kuroi Shitoga Tsumugu Saiga no Monogatari in 2007 and its remastered version with a bonus track in 2009. They have also released their EP, Sutashita Shoujo wa, Hai Yoru Konton to Kaikousu., in 2010.
Kuruoshiku Saita Seisan na Mukuro wa Kanade... and Kylie's Departure (2011–2013)
On August 18, 2011, Kuruoshiku Saita Seisan na Mukuro wa Kanade, Itooshiku Saita Shoujo wa Seisen no Kotoba wo Utau. was released.
In January 2013, Rib:y(uhki) was recruited by ANOTHER STREAM, KIM's original band, to replace REINO for vocals though he is still involved in ICDD.
On April 25, 2013, Rib:y(uhki) mentioned in a discussion on Twitter that Kylie had married and is not working in music now. It is unclear when specifically she left the band. KIMIKO, lead singer of BRIDEAR, may be replacing Kylie for the time being.
On August 12, 2013, the band's remastered version of "Danzai no Homuro to Koibitotachi no Rondo", from their first album, appeared in INFINITE UNIVERSE's compilation album, The Wheel Of Fortune. KIMIKO covered the vocal part originally performed by Kylie.
