Almost all of their songs were written in English. Their music genre is said to be melodic hard core, digital rock, and power pop.

The masks

The members of the band wear masks because they were once working as office workers and they could not show their faces. After they became well known, they decided to keep wearing their masks. The masks became a trademark for the band.
