This week I wanted to talk about a song by a certain composer instead of an anime opening or ending song. I’m not the best with producers, directors, composers and other names from behind the scenes of anime. Having said that I do know of one composer who’s work I find to be breathtaking. That composer is Sawano Hiroyuki who has worked on and composed for a number of anime including Kill La Kill, Attack on Titan and Seraph of the End. The song I wanted to focus on in partcular is scaPEGoat which was one of the ending themes for Seraph of the End.

I’ve never been the kind of person who listens to soundtracks from any kind of TV show or movie. Soundtracks always sound incredible when paired with the visuals but I never want to sit down and listen to them without the visuals. Sawano’s work however is a big exception to this as he is only of the only composers I could sit and listen to and actually enjoy away from watching its anime counterpart. This song is so beautiful and atmospheric and always makes me sway to its rhythm. I love the fact that it starts off so slow and quiet and slowly builds into a really incredible rock piece that isn’t to heavy or overpowering. I also love the vocals in not only this piece but many of Sawano’s songs as they are so powerful. If you are looking for something new to listen to I highly recommend checking out his work.
Until next time thanks for reading and I hope you’re having a great day!
