Another day, another set of previews. This post will have something special for those who like piano touhou arrangements!
[MINAMOTRANCE] - The Anthems 2015
Genre - EDM, Trance, J-Core, Rave, Vocal, Original
Site | XFD (mp3 download)
Hey! Not bad... Never heard of this circle before, but there's some potential in the crossfade. I'd say that if like things like nightcore remixes, then you may like this. I'm not sure what to really compare this with. Just listen to it for yourself!
[Assaultdoor] - Imitation Circus
Genre - Piano, Touhou
Site | XFD
It's hard to believe that I've never listened to anything from this circle before. It seems like Assaultdoor consists of two pianists who play the arrangements created by these four (or more) arrangers. This setup allows for a pretty nice variety of styles to be shown.
I'm really liking what I'm hearing from them. This circle may just well be my second favorite piano circle, after Frozen Fantasia. If you like piano touhou arrangements, then you MUST listen to Frozen Fantasia's Andante to a Small Dream. You won't be disappointed by his work or Assaultdoor's, especially if you're tired of Marasy like I am. I'll have to go back and listen to Assaultdoor's previous works now.
[Kusemono Records] - Nokogiri Charlotte -Black Label-
Genre - EDM, Electronic
Site | XFD
Hmm, this is an interesting album. It's supposed to be a mock game OST, meaning the tracks were composed as if they were for an OST. But there's no actual game, just the characters, story, concept, and music. It's the second album of the series, the first one being just Nokogiri Charlotte.
NC Black Label sounds pretty decent for EDM considering the other stuff that I hear from electronic circles nowadays. The album is pretty long at 2 discs, but I did enjoy a few of the tracks in the preview. The concept is interesting, so it may be worth checking out if you like this kind of music.
So how do you guys feel about the various piano circles that are around? I'm really glad that I managed to find another high quality one today. Next time, I'll try to stay away from electronic music circles to get some more variety going in my preview posts.
I'm still waiting on Edelweiss' C89 games preview video, or even doujinstyle's C89 games preview thread. Nothing from those two just yet :(.
