The fourth and last MALICE MIZER album, Bara no Seidou (meaning "Cathedral of Rose"), continues among the lines of the new MALICE MIZER style, anticipated in the single trilogy released before the album. Their style moved toward neoclassical/baroque compositions and sumptuous gothic arrangements, with the large use of church organs, church bells, harpichords and real choirs. Typical band instruments like guitars and drums almost disappeared, except in a couple of songs. However, Bara no Seidou's style is surprisingly varied, not only neoclassical songs inspired by Bach are found, but also dark industrial/darkwave tunes like Kyomu no Naka de no Yuugi and Chinurareta Kajitsu, and even a violent metal-influenced song like Hakai no Hate, alternating distorted guitars and vocals with a heavenly choir and the church organ.
