Music bursting out of the doors: Arashi - Face Down, Super Junior - Opera, Sid - S & more!

The lock is opened, bursting forth is the whipping wind of the storm. Arashi's Face Down is a summer squall with the power to blow the heavy clouds away.

Stylish, with a pulsating beat and a rap sequence by Sakurai Shou, this disco dance tune kicks start the flaming hot season.

And it's not just the summer it's kicking start, it's also the theme song of Ono Satoshi's newest Fuji TV Monday 9 o'clock TV drama. Ono plays the security expert who solves crimes committed in a locked room.

The classic detective story setting is infused with new plots and ingenious solutions.

Super Junior's third Japanese release is Opera. A cool dance theme that burns and freezes at the same time. When they performed the Korean version of the hit on their World Tour Super Show 4, the song is so overwhelmingly popular that they have to localize it for the Japanese fans.

Listen to both versions to see which one you prefer. Take a deep breath after Opera finishes and Way begins. The mellow ballad is a stark contrast from the exciting Opera. The lyrics is build around the bond and the friendship between the group, and it's a warm, touching change from the heart pounding beat of Opera.

The CD+DVD version comes with the music videos of the song and the making-of clips.

See the other side of Sid. Their previous single Nokoriga is a medium rock tune in pastel shades, but their second release, S, in 2012 in a hard rock beat in Monochrome tones. As the theme song of Sadako 3D, the song interprets the powerful visuals in the movie with its beat.

The rapid bombardment from the electronic guitars and drums resembles the sounds of static from televisions, the sound that accompanies the appearance of the most terrifying ghost from Japanese cinema.

Sadako 3D is the 5th instalment in the Ring series. The tormented ghost is not only crawling out of the screens of smart phones, she is creeping out in 3D, spreading her virus of terror to the real world.

Feel the static, watch out for the ghostly hand:
