I stumbled over this piece of magic on complete accident, searching for another anime soundtrack. It blew me once it hit the 30-second mark. Just oh my gosh! I absolutely love the strings and horns and wind instruments! It’s so upbeat and chirpy, yet regal with its use of classical instruments! It makes me so happy and almost nostalgic somehow to listen to it. It reminds me of some Studio Ghibli soundtracks somehow. Love love love it!
My boyfriend and I have been playing Path of Exile together since the beginning of 2017; being a long distance couple has led to a search for things to play together online when we skype, as a way to interact together when we’re so physically apart. We’ve loved playing the online multiplayer fantasy game Path of Exile together, and I discovered it’s incredibly interesting soundtrack.
They’re often very long tracks and very atmospheric, but it you’re a writer like me, that’s great news. I love songs that aren’t too short, that you can get lost in. This is one of my favorite tracks so far. It’s eery, heavy, and dark, yet uses enough percussion to keep the beat steady and engaging. I love how tingling this track sounds; you can taste the smog in the air and feel a growing apprehension build. Then it softens out towards the end, mellowing and quiet, yet still eery and sad. It delicious.
I actually fell so in love with this song that I found and learned an official piano transcription of this melody in my own spare time. There is real magic in this melody, from the rhythm to the dancing melody. ❤
Firstly, this is fantastic music for a trailer. It hits all the right notes perfectly. I get chills almost every single time I listen to this song. It’s so haunting and grows to such an epic sound by its end. I love it so much. I also hold it very dear to my heart because it’s brought much of my own writing to vivid life in my imagination, more so than a lot of other songs. That sounds so dramatic, but as a writer, I cling to whatever can do that for me. I can see imagery of my own fantasies, vividly, to this piece of music. I just love that.
