Participating artists will include Versailles bandmates HIZAKI and MASASHI, guitarist Meku (ex-GALEYD), bassists Takume Negishi (Dr.StrangeLove) and IKUO (BULL ZEICHEN 88, Rayflower), and drummer Kei Yamazaki (Venomstrip). The album was promoted by the national tour DEATH PARADE.

He also released a best of compilation of his compositions and a remake album featuring tracks from all his previous bands.The final concert of this tour took place at Zepp Diver City in Tokyo on December 28th, 2015.
