Overview[edit]

Release[edit]

Musical Style[edit]

The album features a much more heavier, rock-influenced style of music. The album is the first to feature new band members; Wu-Chy on bass, Higuchuuhei on guitar, Zen on keyboard, and Izu on drums. Previous releases (with the exception of "Soloween") featured only lead-vocalist Exo-Chika and producer Raveman.

Artwork and Theme[edit]

The album has an 80's horror theme. Both the cover and title of the album are an allusion to the 1984 American horror slasher film, A Nightmare on Elm Street. This is the bands first album cover to not feature lead-singer Exo-Chika, instead it features only their producer, Raveman.
