Hōyoku (鵬翼) is the fifth studio album by Japanese band Mucc, released on November 23, 2005. The album shows the band exploring new territory with less heavy material, drawing from folk influences. The lyrical themes of the album are also a sharp turn away from the darkness of their previous albums.[1] The limited edition of the album includes a DVD with footage from their European tour. The first press versions included a second disc with two extra songs and had a blue cover instead of brown.[2] The album reached number 22 on the Oricon chart.[3]
