So for the first music recommendation of the third year of comics, what do you guys think I'm going to choose? I'll give you guys a hint: it is something that I totally love and talk about all the time, even though there's probably a whole bunch of you guys out there going, "Ugh this stuff again?! I don't care about this stuff!" But then I talk about it anyway because fuck yeah this is MY comic, bitches. Have you guessed what I'm talking about??? ... Going once! ... Going twice!
VIDEO GAME REMIXES. O_O We all love 'em. I love 'em, you love 'em, even the people who don't love 'em actually really do and are just in denial with themselves about it. And so, for today's musical recommendation, I bring you the album ROCKMAN HOLIC, a Mega Man remix album by the doujin circle SOUND HOLIC. The album was created to commemmorate the 25th Anniversary of the Mega Man series (since CAPCOM sure wasn't going to do anything for it.) The album is a mix of rock and electronic songs, covering music from throughout the Mega Man and Mega Man X series history. And not only is the album expertly arranged and performed, but SOUND HOLIC also brings their own flavor to the songs by adding lyrics to them, turning these instrumental tunes into full-fledged j-rock songs. What's more, many of the songs feature vocals by famous Japanese voice actors, like Masako Nozawa, the voice of Goku, Gohan, and Goten from the Dragon Ball series. (whose song is by far the silliest one on the album.) Get a taste of this epic Mega Man remixing with SOUND HOLIC's animated teaser trailer for the album, as well as their unbelievably good cover of Dr. Wily's Stage from MM2, featuring the amazingly kickass singer, nano. I'd recommend this album to any fan of j-rock, electronica-rock, or Mega Man music in general. Get your hands on this album any way you can, it's pretty sweet. See you guys on Monday!
(Oh, and hi to the people on /mu/, who know firsthand that my tattoo is actually fake and I draw it on with sharpie every morning.)
