暁Records – Necromantic

Akatsuki Records is out with another song on their YouTube, released on Valentines’ Day.

The song is called Necromantic!

I’d like to point out that it feels like the Japanese are better at English wordplay than we are, because wordplay is ingrained in their own language. Maybe it’s because of all the exposure I’ve had to Japanese media compared to English media over the past several years, but it certainly feels like they are more apt to try out wordplay in the first place than we are. Necromantic is a pretty cool one.

And it’s basically what you’d expect, a sort of zombie themed romance song. Something that both Chihiro Furuya and friend of the blog Lynn could get behind, I’m sure!

暁Records – イドラ・デウス -The Creator-

We were blessed with one other song by Akatsuki Records, just before Christmas time. And that was イドラ・デウス -The Creator-, or Idol Deus -The Creator-.

Best of: 暁Records!

Best of their YouTube releases, at least.
The songs that I’ve covered here, once per week, until there were none left to write about! Time flies.

I figure I can’t just end it there. I also have no idea when they will add another song. It’s been 3 months, so maybe soon, but it all depends on whoever is creating the PVs for their songs, because that seems to be the requirement for them to put a song on the YouTube channel for all to hear.

暁Records – First Memory / Next Memory

This is it folks, the final song on the Akatsuki Records Youtube channel. After this it’ll probably be only once every few months, depending on how often they release new PVs for songs.

And I’ve saved the best for last.
Or at least, the longest for last.

I’m still not sure where I’d rate this one, but here it is: First Memory / Next Memory, a song that is essentially two songs in one! I believe they are separate songs on the official album, but for their YouTube it seems they decided to string them together.

暁Records – THE SHOW

We’ve only got two more Akatsuki songs left to look at on their official YouTube page. Who would have guessed that we’d run out so soon?

But then again, who could have guessed that I’d keep these Akatsuki posts going so long?

Today’s song is THE SHOW (Remake).
Just like with ENDLESS FANTASY, this seems to be a shorter version of the actual song, also only clocking in at 2 minutes. The full song is probably longer, at 4-5 minutes like most of their songs.
