Seven SongsJune 10, 2008
In no particular order:
Waylander – Beyond the Ninth Wave
From their latest album “Honour Amongst Chaos”. Waylander is a folk/celtic metal band from Ireland. I just got it last night, so I’m enjoying the album now.
Sheryl Nome starring May’n – Iteza Gogo Kyuuji Don’t be Late
A song from the anime series Macross Frontier, found in the “Diamond Crevase” single. This is the only anime I’ve watched after 2 years. I’m not a big fan of anime, but this is an exception since it’s MACROSS!!
Mithotyn – King of the Distant Forest
This song was in my head all day at work yesterday. Mithotyn was a viking metal band from Sweden, too bad they disbanded. They made a great viking metal sound, especially in the first album “King of the Distant Forest.”
Yasunori Mitsuda – The Theme of Rogue Galaxy
I won’t be a real gamer if I didn’t post any gaming music! This here’s from the “Rogue Galaxy Premium Arrange” album, it’s a compilation of arranged tracks from Rogue Galaxy by several composers including Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Xenosaga), Yoko Shimomura (Parasite Eve, Kingdom Hearts series), Noriko Hibino (Metal Gear Solid 2 & 3), and Motoi Sakuraba (Vagrant Story, Valkyrie Profile), to mention a few.
Fire Bomber – Dynamite Explosion
Opening song of Macross 7. Fire Bomber is a band from the series, which is known for the music, instead of INSANE ROBOT BATTLES OMGLOL111one.
Otyg – I Trollberg Oeh Skog
Otyg is a folk metal band from Sweden. A side project by Vintersorg (which is also the name of his band), Otyg was put on hiatus 1999 due to lost interest and inspiration in the project. The song is from the first album “Alvefard”.
Moonsorrow – For Whom the Bell Tolls (Metallica Cover)
Moonsorrow is an epic/pagan metal band from Finland and is one of my favorite bands. This song is from their “Tulimyrsky” single. What’s great about this song is it’s not just a normal cover song, they were able to make it sound like one of their songs by incorporating the whole Moonsorrow style instead of just playing the Metallica style. Fucking awesome.
I think that’s it.
