This is pretty cool, but nothing I haven't already heard before. There's the plain 4/4 snare drum found in metal all the time, simple guitar work, and some parts that sound like they're sequenced (which isn't necessarily bad, but in this case, it seriously takes from the professionalism).
Vocals are far too compressed and static. With harmonies, the most annoying thing ever is 3 people singing at the same pitch, instead of being given individual parts to play. The mixing is off, which annoyed me, but this is minor.
Now, keep in mind, although it sounds pretty negative, and it seems I'm the black sheep of the lot, this is purely constructive criticism from another musician to give you something to improve on. I still rated a 5 and favorite'd this, so you'd probably want to know what you've done right.
Firstly, high energy. Obviously, you guys put a lot of effort into this. I love that in rock songs, even if they are really simple . There is absolutely no point in making music if you don't enjoy it to the utmost.
The melody with the vocals is nice. It sounds static, yes, but I'm not saying it's bad just because of that little nitpick (still, there's no point in having 3 tenors, get some bass up in this). It flows with the string section in the background, which personally I think isn't brought out enough (I would have used SID arps and saws, but that's just me, haha), but is very, very complimentary. Sounds nice!
Lastly, you happen to share the last name of the artist Takashi Murakami, which I find interesting. This song does sound like a blend between western and eastern styles (heavy metal mixed with Japanese energy).
In Japanese music (or any popular form of Eastern music), I've found they're not afraid to move out, open up an existing genre, and really give it their own flair, which is exactly what should happen with pop music nowadays. I respect bands and artists that go out of their way to create something artistic, not just something that sounds good.
I can really feel this here. Although I don't agree with the recent Japanese, Chinese, Korean culture (subculture of 'otaku', opression and poverty, hardcore opression, respectively), I've taken a lot of inspiration from my origin's history. I guess what I'm trying to say here is, I love this song because it blends two completely different 'cultures' of music together as an expression of art.
The whole second half of this I was ranting :p. I really enjoyed this, this is excellent. Keep up the good work!
make more of these
i like using japanese music for anime conventions and stuff. make more songs with them pleez!
Are freaking amazing. Tell you're friends that they sound incredible. Of course, I COULD sound like that... I just don't know how to speak Japanese... Or Korean... Or whatever they're speaking X__x;
The drums kinda sound like they needed to be a tad louder, and the the guitar. Holy freaking shiz. They sound so pure. I absolutly cannot get over how well put together this song is overall.
Now that I think about it, the intro sounds like something out of a Sonic game o:
5/5 - 10/10 - DLed
I_E - You fsking ROCK.
D00D!! You are my Savior!! (i'm a nonreliges person) Music with japanese vocals seem so god damn hard to find and you made one o.O the second the japanese words hit my ears my hand moved to the download button lol
Great fucking job!! ^_^
That's really sad. <_>
Do you have...
1. A story board?
2. Some concept art?
3. Or at least a loose concept of the story, and character descriptions?
Even if the anime never comes to be... I must animate a intro scene for this. It will be magnificant!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
