Dante's 東方 Touhou Classic/Metal 67 Inferno
September 22, 2009
Artist: ひこすけ (Hikosuke, I'll start providing some artist's names in romaji, so that it'd be easier to comment on him/her/it, etc...)
Album: ORIN SaGa -Tril of Billion-
Original: 業火マントル (Hellfire Mantle)
"Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita..." or in English for you guys, "Halfway along our life's path...." yes, this is the perfect phrase to describe my RL situation right now, I'm at a point where my decisions will effect my future, so I have to choose carefully.
First of all, there are quite a lot of reasons I did not use Nuclear Fusion for Utsuho, yes, there ARE quite a lot, but the main reason is that after listening to all the orchestra arranges of Nuclear Fusion I had, I came to one conclusion, they all seemed very alike, please don't flame me because of this, but I can say with confidence that once you've listened to one orchestra arrange of Nuclear Fusion you've heard most of the ones that are out there; THAT is not the same as far as metal arranges go, sincerely speaking, metal arranges of Nuclear Fusion are normally very unique and different from one another, sadly it's not the same for orchestras, to be noted is the fact that I'm not actually saying that they do not sound good, oh contraire, they sound very good, Nuclear Fusion is a theme that sounds good be it orchestra, metal or techno, an extremely flexible song. WHICH does not mean I won't be uploading Nuclear Fusion arranges, of course I will, it's just that this song HAS to be in this compilation.
Look at me rant, let's get to reason number two, alright, sincerely speaking, I could raise a great big "OBJECTION!" saying something on the lines of: "BUT, NUCLEAR FUSION IS UTSUHO'S THEME!!!!". Alright, I won't deny it, that is true, Nuclear Fusion IS Utsuho's "great, big, evil theme". But because of the above reason I changed my mind. No seriously, Hellfire Mantle is an amazingly good, evil and it has a heck of a big Final Fantasy-ish vibe, very, very, very fitting for a theme before the "great big boss".
Bla bla bla Emiya, let's get down to the meat of this song. What's with Dante's Divine Comedy quote and title? Actually, I'm pretty amazed nobody has thought about it yet (shame on you, Chaos) we are underground, in hell, about to have a great big showdown with a great big boss. Screams epic to me, thus some classical literature is needed to tag along with the epicness.
On to the song, you love, don't you? Tell the truth, it's amazing, right?
I love what Hikosuke did here, combing metal with that eargasmic orchestra, and adding some "flamencoish" stuff in the middle, not only that a slightly electronic part and even choruses near the end, very amazing, and not to mention, an EXTREMELY unique arrange, you won't hear stuff like this every day, seriously.
Anyways, I tried out some new video effects for the heck of it, how is it? Did it look nice? If I do say so myself I think it's quite fitting, instead of the classic "black screen till the awesomeness".
Nothing much to say about the pic itself, HEY CHAOS, YOU LOVE IT DON'T YOU!? ADMIT IT!!!
