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 (or brutal decadence metal) band[2] formed in 2007 in Fukuoka. The band currently consists of Rib:y(uhki) (lead vocals), Hull of VAGUEDGE (bass and synthesizer), KIM (lead guitar), and KIMI of BRIDEAR (female vocals). Their songs are performed in Japanese and the fictional "Taihaisekai" language. All stories in their albums take place in Decadenscene.


Formation, EPs, Full Length Albums, and Kylie's Departure (2007–Present)[edit]

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 on December 31, 2008, and its remastered version with a bonus track exactly a year later. They have also released their EP, Sutashita Shoujo wa, Hai Yoru Konton to Kaikousu., in 2010. On August 13, 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.[3] KIMI, lead singer of BRIDEAR, replaced Kylie in 2014.

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.[4] KIMI covered the vocal part originally performed by Kylie. Imperial Circus Dead Decadence released an EP, Yomi yori Kikoyu, Koukoku no Tou to Honoo no Shoujo., at Comiket 87 on December 29, 2014. It features songs that will be included into the next upcoming album, which will be a continuation of the Kuruoshiku... album, plus the remastered track "Danzai no Homuro to Koibitotachi no Rondo".[5] The release date for the full album has yet to be announced. Imperial Circus Dead Decadence performed their cover version of "Fubuki" (吹雪), the ending theme of the Kantai Collection anime. The performance was uploaded on YouTube and Nico Nico Douga in April 2015. [6][7] Before ICDD performed live at Phantom Excaliver's album release party at Shibuya Cyclone July 5, Rib:y(uhki) agreed to have Shuhei Kamada, sole member of Malikliya, as support drummer of ICDD.[8]

According to the official website, ICDD's third album is in progress and coming soon.
