I love pretty much everything which comes under the genre of EPIC MUSIC haha. So i recently have started up a youtube channel called Sound Strikes which is dedicated to just the epic music genre i've uploaded cinamatic edits from Lol and Wow etc with epic music edited in. I've been thinking about doing some edits with epic anime scenes. Anyone got any suggestions as to which scenes I should use? Anyway I'll leave a link to my channel for u guys to check it out!

Hey guys I'm new on this site and would like to share some of my work with fellow cinematic music fans! Thanks for your support, likes and comments!

BattleCharge is a suspenseful, dramatic track that conveys the glory and terror of battle; charging against the enemy, against all odds.

It begins with suspense and tension before battle, then picks up energy to all out war and concludes with a victorious brass melody that shines through. Whatever obstacles you're up against, charge into battle against them.

This track is perfect for suspenseful movie, game and sports trailers.

Thanks for listening, liking and commenting!

I've spent inane (not insane) amounts of time and money on symphonic metal over the past decade. https://www.last.fm/user/nDroae/library/artists

Sawano is my top played anime composer, and though ex-fans have told me I'd get tired of his schtick eventually, that hasn't happened yet.

I wrote:


In my listening these days, anime scores (orchestral and otherwise) have for the most part taken the place film scores held when I was younger. The communities even have composers with similar reputations: Joe Hisaishi and Yoko Kanno are like John Williams, beloved and deeply respected by all. And Hiroyuki Sawano is Hans Zimmer: creator of "epic" pounding scores in the biggest blockbuster shows, adored by young fans, but often criticized for recycling and laziness, for being handed gigs that should have gone to other composers, and for generally making film/anime music worse. (I observe this, but I remain strongly a fan of both Sawano and Zimmer, haha.)


It's amazing how similar the Zimmer and Sawano fanbases are, right down to flooding their page comment boxes with "GOD [84]" "GOD [85]" "GOD [86]" etc.

My musician friend CLBGM wrote to me on MAL:


There's a lot of people on the internet who accuse Sawano and Kajiura of recycling their music (the cheap phrase 'all their songs sound the same'). That doesn't make sense at all. Since the times of Bach and Mozart, composing music is about reusing musical entities that are part of your own 'musical language', manipulating and combining them in a creative way (this is the subjective part that determines if you like a composer's work or not). A musical entity alone may be 'generic' (when a lot of composers use the same entity in their music) most of the time, but all entities used by a composer together make their music distinguishable. In my case, the more I understand the composer (a composer I like to begin with) the more I enjoy his/her music.


That happens in symphonic metal too; in particular a lot of Nightwish fans felt that Tuomas recycled too much old material on their last album in 2015.

If you're a fan of Two Steps From Hell, have a look at this post by Thomas Bergersen (one of TSFH's two composers) about the validity of pop music.

And a couple of comments I wrote:

"Music requires the removal of monetary concerns before it can be considered art?" If that were true, then every great classical painting commissioned by the wealthy would not count as art. For that matter, trailer music is extremely concerned with making money, as the composer has a very short span of time to draw potential moviegoers into the trailer with a manufactured piece of music engineered for maximum mass appeal. I remember when I first became aware of TSFH, it was the Freedom Fighters trailer for Star Trek (2009), and people online were cynically commenting that the "generic dramatic music" was fooling people into thinking the movie would be good. All I knew was that the music was moving me to tears every time I watched that trailer.


My complaint is, for almost every piece of media I come to love on a deep level, there's a legion of people saying "It was made to manipulate you and earn money; it has no real value." One gets tired of that. :)


Edit: Also relevant: the first CD I ever owned was Star Wars music, and my high school graduation gift in 2004 was to get to see Howard Shore conduct The Lord of the Rings Symphony live. It runs deep.
