It’s freezing here in the central US which appropriately points to this track. Sad that I’ve never seen them perform this song live.

Trying to Revisit Galneryus

October 19, 2016 Leave a comment

I can’t do it. I used to listen to these guys a lot and many other bands like them, but I can’t even finish listening to this song. Speed metal has lost its appeal to me. They all sound the same. The constant double bass drumming bores me, I need rhythm variety. But that tells me the genre is dead to me. I enjoyed my time back in the day listening to this type of music, but now it’s time to move on.

Shelter

I’m not a fan of Porter Robinson’s music, but this is one of the best music videos I’ve seen in a long time. This 6 minute short told a better story than Your Lie in April (Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso). It’s beautiful, had a theme going, told a solid narrative, and ultimately bittersweet. It’s funny how a 6 min video can achieve so much as opposed to 22 episode show. Shelter is a must watch.

Updated: My Top 10 Macross Songs

Now that Macross Delta is over, time to update this list. 🙂

To my surprise, the music in Delta ended up pretty good. Mikumo, Kaname, and Freyja being the standouts. Disappointingly though, Walkure is severely underutilized if this is all there is. Just imagine the merchandising potential this group has. 5 members, 5 times the music. They could easily release solo albums from each members singing all the songs individually. For example, if you don’t like Mikumo’s inclusion of the song, listen to the other versions. Anyways, let’s get this over with.

  1. Sheryl Nome starring May’n – Yousei (Macross Frontier)
  2. CMJK, Sharon Apple – INFORMATION HIGH (Macross PLUS)
  3. Walküre – Hametsu no Junjou (Macross Delta)
  4. Walküre – Kaze wa Yokoku Naku Fuku (Macross Delta)
  5. Walküre – Walküre Attack! (Macross Delta)
  6. Lynn Minmay – An Angel’s Paint (Macross: Do You Remember Love?)
  7. Fire Bomber – Remember 16 (Macross 7)
  8. May’n & Megumi Nakajima – Sayonara no Tsubasa ~ the end of triangle (Macross Frontier)
  9. Fire Bomber – Diamond Calling (Macross 7)
  10. Akino Arai – Idol Talk (Macross PLUS)

music review: lynch – AVANTGARDE

September 18, 2016 Leave a comment

 

It’s become clear to me that every album lynch releases, they move up the ranks of my top favorite bands. They’re now ranked 5th on my list. One of the things I love about their discography is that all of their song titles are in English. That alone saves me time of retagging their tracks from kanji to romaji. AVANTGARDE is an improvement from their previous work, D.A.R.K.-In the Name of Evil-. The typical lynch fashion of alternative metal with more oomph. More memorable songs here, however there are still filler tracks throughout. If I had to pick a favorite song here, that would be UNELMA. It’s got the same song writing characteristic from abingdon boys school and the style from the GazettE making this a very easy song to get into.

Highlights: UNELMA, PHANTOM, F.A.K.E.

Worthwhile: EVIDENCE, PLEDGE, THE OUTRAGE SEXUALITY, FAREWELL, KILLING CULT

Fillers: DAMNED, PRAYER, NEEDLEZ

Rating: 8/10
