This song is like my “outro theme” or anthem for the end of my 2017…I made some big choices without certain safety nets in places because it was a gut/faith move I felt deep in my soul that it was the right thing to do and that I would be ok as long as I walked in faith. I heard this song a couple days after my plans set in motion and I’ve been playing it on loop ever since. It’s a powerful song, gorgeous male voices, powerful percussion and chanting war cries that dare to run towards the future I want with arms outstretched, no turning back. And I’m pumped.
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.
This epic, brilliant battle track from the anime Fate/Zero was written by female musical composer Yuki Kajiura and is one of her many great pieces of sound. I absolutely love the vocals and percussion. And the electric guitar solo in the middle is fantastic!
