Original: Nostalgic Blood of the East ~ Old World
From Touhou 8: Imperishable Night
Theme of Stage 3
Composed by ZUN
Light Rearrangement

The types of arrangements are only going to get more complex for the next couple of uploads, and this is precisely what a "Light Rearrangement" is. It quite simply rearranges the song enough to be called an original arrangement. For this particular arrangement, I wanted to preserve the original and keep that "nostalgic" feel its supposed to invoke, but remaster and remix it enough to be something I could truly call original in its own right, the way I see the song should truly shine. Towards the end however, please forgive the unnecessarily long silence lasting around 10 seconds maximum. That was an oversight on my part, since it was original supposed to be 4 seconds, but its something that isn't really worth re-compressing and re-rendering to fix.

The next arrangement I'll be posting will more than likely be Mima's Castle. If you're still trying to guess what that song could possibly be, keep at it! All I can say is that it'll be a Castlevania and Touhou crossed rearrangement and remix. I'm pretty excited for it since it involves two songs from two different franchises that I adore, and the songs I chose are eerily similar to each other in terms of structure...

Very cool! And relax, and epic... And rock, and classic... Just amazing work ;)

Thank you! This is one of the songs I'm rather fond of, and it makes me glad to know others agree on what I like about it.

Another awesome song! :)

MeisterMach5 responds:

They're only going to get more complex and arguably better as Border of Fate 2016 continues. At least for the next few tracks. Thanks for the review!
