A little late in getting this out, but it’s Friday so you bet I’m going to get an Akatsuki post out. At least until I’ve run out of songs to post about from their YouTube…
The song this time is called OMEN.
The original Touhou track for OMEN is called Emotional Skyscraper ~ Cosmic Mind. Like many other comparisons, it sounds very similar to OMEN. The resemblance is once again, uncanny. I think the original track actually is a bit more mellow, if only because it’s lacking Stack’s powerful vocals that give OMEN a real emotional punch. That said, it’s a really good song. Great background music, which I suppose these songs are designed to be in the end.
Naturally, OMEN is right up there with Cosmic Mind. As I mentioned, the addition of vocals, specifically powerful vocals, really changes the tone of the song. Each chorus just explodes with energy. Something we’ve heard with many other Akatsuki songs, that’s for sure – and it never gets old!
One funny thing about OMEN is the English lyrics during the chorus, that are displayed on the video. I wouldn’t have guessed she was singing what she was without those subtitles haha! Well, the grammar isn’t entirely correct with what she sings, but that’s also a common feature of Akatsuki songs!
The funny thing is the sentence “I’ll awake, I’ll depending on your prey”, because they could have easily changed it to “I’ll awake, all depending on your prey” and it’d be a correct sentence. The way Stack sings it, you wouldn’t know the difference anyways.
Anyways, this is another great song.
Either they selected the best of the best to feature on their YouTube, or there’s still an entire Akatsuki world awaiting me when I finally get my hands on their music!
I’ll give OMEN a 4.5 / 5.
Not that the scores mean anything.
Until next time,
Thanks for reading!
