Opinion

A unit of vocalists, music makers and an illustrator that has been created with the purpose of writing and producing all and any music that could be needed in an anime, from the OST and insert songs to the opening and ending themes. The artists were selected with the purpose of covering a broad -as broad as possible, at least- range of music genres, and thus be able to complete projects that differ greatly from one another from a stylistic viewpoint. Obviously, selecting only four of their works (I’m talking about the videos above) is quite a labor. Especially after considering that they have (as a unit) quite recognizable anime titles in their discography. Apart from the plurality of their sounds, I feel that they can be characterized by a soft and superficial vibe, as well as the cloudier and slightly distorted sound of rock. It is as clear as day that their aim is to compose catchy songs that will have the desirable impact on the audience.

It’s worth to listen to their OPs, their EDs as well as the insert songs. Every one of their songs narrates a story but you don’t have to be a fan of the corresponding anime to enjoy them. My personal favorite by far is “Who am I?”. Not only does it have a great balance between English and Japanese, it has influences from the Middle East, Latin America not to mention the classic sound of J-pop, an EDM vibe but with a samba twist in its rhythm, synths that make sense although being arguably absurd, the main motif that is repeated with variations making it a whole lot stronger and the drops leading to the chorus… Everything is spot on. In case I had no clue that Dorohedoro existed and just happened to listen to “Who am I?”, I’d be thrilled and play it on repeat again and again. The rest of their Dorohedoro-related releases are also very good. Long story short, I’m looking forward to their newest album.

If you feel frisky, adventurous or if you know your Japanese, have a look at their official website.
