21:56 - moonflash Castlevania should not be forgotten in this conversation. The guy playing in this video can't possibly be human. [link]
21:54 - !J.O.O.E.! I haven't played Dragon's Crown yet, but everything of his I've heard is great. He has a very distinctive sound.
21:51 - moonflash Not familiar with much of Hitoshi san's work apart from Vagrant story (which was stellar) but the games he's worked on looks like a list of stuff I've been meaning to check out for ages! (like Tactics ogre and Dragon's Crown)
21:50 - !J.O.O.E.! Speaking of soundtracks, Alien Isolation's is exceptional. I had to turn down the actual music as it was making me too tense but that combined with the amazingly rendered ambient effects and sounds is something else.
21:41 - moonflash Yeah, Colossus and Silent Hill are brilliant. Also Assassin's Creed Brotherhood had a pretty good OST. Apart from that, literally anything by Nobuo Uematsu, Yasunori Mitsudia and Yoko Shimomura is masterclass.
Les Fleurs Du Mal, the new album from Therion is currently streaming online in its entirety. In case you are curious about it, you can listen to it at this location. Les Fleurs Du Mal will finally see its physical release tomorrow, November 27th, in North America via End Of The Light Records.
This is the band's 25th anniversary album and it features covers of French songs. The band also sold the album on their Flowers Of Evil tour.
This album was exactly what i expected it to be. I couldn't even get through it all. Just forgettable 2-4 minute songs really. I don't know if it would help if i were French, or maybe an avid Opera fan, but it's just plain boring. Therion is my favourite band btw too, but these last two albums are not for me.
Does Johnsson return to the mic? Christofer Johnsson roaring a french pop song would make this worthwhile.
Or a creepy love duet between the Vikstroms (the song itself not creepy, creepy cause of the singers).
