Japanese screamo legends Envy has lost their vocalist, Tetsuya Fukagawa. I can’t say i’m sad to see him go. I have always preferred the Envy of the first two albums rather than their more recent output, mostly because the vocals seemed dry compared to the overwhelming sorrow of the first recording. My theory is that the vocals on their first albums were genuine cries whereas he then started to feel better but continued to scream nonetheless. Now, I’m not one to wish the worst to someone I don’t know, but I hope they’ll find a replacement that has something to feel bad about.
