At last! Sorry for not posting anything for two weeks now…the Soccer World Cup got in the way! Of course I also focused on making new stuff to show you, I hope the waiting time paid off! So prepare yourself, for I have a lot to talk about in connection to today’s song. I need to make up for last week after all!
As announced two weeks ago, here’s a song featuring themes of two rated-M RPGs, Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars and Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2. The songs are Torri’s theme Monochromatic Color (which serves as the song’s main source) and Solid Park (apparently the main battle theme) respectively. While the first tune was included rather for personal reasons than for musical goodness (although it’s interesting nonetheless), I’d really recommend checking out Solid Park. It’s a rock-solid piece of techno-rock-something and I really tried to include that theme’s essence in this mix, but the original cannot be beaten that easily. Have a listen:
From that picture I think we can all guess where that M rating comes from…Japan, everyone! However, that game actually includes some kind of “console wars” as there are characters resembling Nintendo Wii, PlayStation and X-Box (if I remember correctly, hopefully I don’t make a fool of myself right now!), so that’s interesting. But why is this series available only for PlayStation consoles then…?
Conception II has an amazingly interesting soundtrack. The character themes actually aren’t among my favorites though, with the exception of Torri’s theme, which (as well as the character herself) really stands out in my opinion. At this point I’d like to share one of the AMAZING battle tunes this game has to offer (and it has a lot!), sadly not all can be found on the internet yet:
It’s a tune that gets you pumped, although it isn’t even my favorite. But it’s not included in today’s mix anyway, I just wanted to share…maybe you even like it! But let’s start talking about the song:
After quite the brainstorming with my friend the name “Skies of Black and White” came up. I also thought about calling it “Monochrome Wing”, but he said it would sound too close to the original that way. You might not get why we came up with these names if you haven’t played the game, so let me explain: the black/white should be obvious as it is directly related to Torri’s appearance, but you also have to know she’s into birds, flying, sky, boundlessness and such things.
Did you read all that stuff? It was really a lot this time! As usual you’ll find the song, the download and the video below. Want to show your appreciation? Donate!Skies of Black and White (455 downloads)
And here’s the video:
I can’t really say what my next plans are, I guess I’ll finish the Touhoid Prime song I mentioned last time. Maybe I can also update you on some new other songs that might not get uploaded in video format. I think I should do some Castlevania as well or maybe some Touhou as well. If only more of you would vote for a song, I wanted to wait until we have at least 100 votes in our Touhou poll. PLEASE PARTICIPATE IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY! Until next time, stay tuned!
