Hereson- aLIEz

Rating: 9/10
I don't want to give a 10/10 but I could for this rendition... It's better than the original!

Artwork by 千夜QYS3 (pixiv). Depicts a character from Mafia: The Brigade of Knowledge Seekers. IMHO, it's the best anime that's not actually an anime.

See the post before previous for (more) details. Apologies for splitting up the off-vocals.

Rayden- aLIEz

Rating: 8/10
Rayden's remix of aLIEz. This track led me to Aldnoah.Zero.

There's a Russian cover of aLIEz with this remix. Take a listen- (SoundCloud) (YouTube)

See previous post for (more) details.

SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:mizuki - aLIEz

Rating: 9/10
First, Aldnoah.Zero! In my humble opinion, it was rather bland and unworthy of my time. That said, I've only seen the 1st season and you probably didn't come here for anime recommendations anyways. But. The soundtrack- oh the soundtrack. What little was overused, aLIEz in particular. If I remember correctly (*big* if), it played during 75+% of the boss fights. Still, I consider this song the best part of the anime so I forgive.

aLIEz was used as the ending song of the 1st season of Aldnoah.Zero. Mizuki did the singing; Hiroyuki Sawano did the composing. If the title is hard to read, it's "SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:mizuki - aLIEz".

While I'm talking about A/Z - Kalafina sang the opening, Heavenly Blue. I like what they do, although this one isn't. (link)

And while I'm handing out related YouTube links, AmaLee has out a cover of aLIEz (link), Heaveanly Blue (link), and a mashup of the two (link).

Non-nightcore is better, but it's a copyrighted track. I cry.

Realized I've not done an actual post for this. I linked to it back in 2014, along with two other tracks. #1 got posted, #2 is posting, and I don't plan on posting #3.

Yay (Radio) Disney?
Buy on iTunes (link)

Thinking of listening to anime for a while. Please look forward to it.

Also, just love this one line from the lyrics.
