MAD QUALIA (English Version)
HYDE, one of Japan's most legendary rock stars, brings to life the newest addition to Capcom's popular game series in this energetic song MAD QUALIA. The song is featured as the image song for DEVIL MAY CRY 5 in Japan. HYDE rocks out amid ruins with his characteristic aggressive and dramatic sound, perfectly matching with the distinctive world of the stylish action game.
ZIPANG (English Version)
HYDE is arguably Japan's most prolific rock star, and doesn't disappoint with this majestic ballad, "ZIPANG". A powerfully poetic illustration of HYDE's homeland, "ZIPANG" chronicles a story of time, change, and strength. HYDE's hauntingly beautiful voice delivers both angelic melodies and the raw aggression HYDE is known for. Further complimented by the piano accompaniment of none other than YOSHIKI from the famous band X Japan, ZIPANG is an emotional and dominating song with a message.
The music video was filmed in a special overnight shoot at Toji Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Kyoto, Japan. The sacred setting and HYDE’s elegant costume, which was inspired from the Buddhist saint Bodhisattva, bring the spirit of ancient Japan to the audience.
