Winter Comiket is almost upon us once again, so here's the beginning of another event preview series! I'll mostly be covering doujin albums that i"m interested in, but I'll check out the C89 games preview video once that's available. As always, you can find the latest album previews and announcement on Doujinstyle's C89 music preview thread.
Read on to see what interesting albums are being released at the next Comiket.
[CROW'SCLAW] - Angel's Wings
Genre - Alternative Metal/Vocal, Original
Site | XFD
It's about damn time, Taka! He's finally gracing us with a full vocal album 1.5 years after his last one, Caramel Crunch. This time around, we only have Show Ikeda and Futoumeido on vocals. It's a shame that there's no Mei Ayakura or Nachi, but i'm not going to complain since I'm happy with the two other returning vocalists.
The crossfade sounded very good to my ears, and is a great indication that the album will turn out fantastic. Like Sepia Recollections, this is an original alternative metal album with vocals.
There's also going to be a second album from CROW'SCLAW this comiket, with KanColle arrangements. I'll check that once once there's more information on it.
[xi-on] - Mapleaves
Genre - Jazz, Touhou
Site | XFD
And another jazz album from xi-on, the circle that has brought us Eyes and Scarlet! As you can see from the cover, this time it'll be Mountain of Faith themed.
Sounds good so far, with more variety than the previous two albums had. I really enjoyed the bossa nova styled track that they had in there.
[Foxtail-Grass Studios] - Re*Collection
Genre - Instrumental, Electronic, Touhou
Site | XFD
Very nice! The preview showcased hamu's usual style of music but with some electronic elements incorporated. I think it's done very tastefully in this case. It definitely sounds a lot better than what he attempted with Laz in their M3-36 album, Melangelic Tone.
Track #2 has guitars played by da from Forest306, which is pretty sweet. I hope to see a full album from him this Comiket, as his last album (caffè pioggia) was very good although short.
That's it for now! I chose my favorite three previews out of what's currently available for my first C89 post. It's looking like it'll be a pretty good comiket so far!
I decided to split up the posts instead of making it one giant one this time around. I hope you guys enjoy these preview posts! Please let me know if there's anything you'd like me to check out in the comments below.
