This week I want to share one of my all time favourite opening songs. The song is Deal With by OLDCODEX which was the opening song to the anime Servamp.

Deal With by Oldcodex

Deal With by OLDCODEX

I feel that this song is either something you’ll love or something you’ll hate depending on your taste in music. As someone who spent most of their teens listening to weird screamo music, songs like this are always something I’m drawn to. I love all the anger and passion within songs like Deal With. One of the others things I always enjoy about OLDCODEX is lead singer Suzuki Tatsuhisa often does a lot of voice acting work in anime where his bands music is used for OP and ED songs. In Servamp’s case he voiced Tsubaki who was the main villain of the series. I think it’s awesome that Suzuki’s not only works in a band but also works in the voice acting industry. That’s something that rarely happens, if ever, in the West. The opening animation works perfectly in sync with their song as it has grimy, static filled shots of the characters and everything is so chaotic and aggressive.

Thanks for reading and I hope you’re having a great day!

      1. Here’s some samples of the kind of heavy rock/metal I’m into:

        And one of the rare ones with vocals:

        (Ok, I think at the end of the day I’m still confused with music genres, but these sound like my kind of rock&metal haha) 🙂

      2. I’ve just had a listen to them and these are really awesome! I love this kind of stuff! I know what you mean with genres as everyone seems to have a different label for the same or similar things so it confuses me too haha! Hearing this gives me such hard rock and metal vibes especially with the guitars! I love it! 😄

      3. Haha glad that this form also appeals to you! 🙂 I’ve not actually explored the metal genre outside of japanese media much, I end up with just an idea of it involving intense screaming over the beats, or the type above that I’m familiar with 😅 I’m sure its more than that though, wiki seems to mention so many types…

      4. It does 😊 yeah there are so many different types and names and can be rather overwhelming but I understand you sticking to what you know! I also understand the screaming over the beats thing 😂 At the end of the day it doesn’t really matter whether you explore different parts within the genre or stay within one! As long as you enjoy something from it all 😄
