Welcome back to another week of our musical series. This certainly has been a weird week man, the Italian Senate thing happened, Genshin dropped its 2nd OST album… ok, the first thing is definitely weirder but, what I mean is, it’s been crazy week. And to take a break from all the craziness in life, music is one of the best solutions.
So give you some more dose of great music, I am back with another 5 anime covers that caught my ear this week. There are always such great covers to listen to man if you know where to look. The list is in random order as always, so let’s get started right away.
Avid by SLSMusic
Avid is the ending theme of the awesome anime, 86. It is originally composed and produced by one of my favorite music directors, Hiroyuki Sawano. So like the original version of the song didn’t sting enough, SLS and the feature on this cover, Ronn made a slower version of the track that hits even harder. Ronn’s voice is so beautiful and SLS nailed the piano so well. I love this cover man; I really hope I can find this on Spotify. For now, you can check out the video here.
Akuma no Ko by HalcyonMusic
Let me say this first off, this is not the only cover of Akuma no Ko I’ll be mentioning today. Akuma no Ko is of course the new ending of Attack on Titan and it is awesome. Attack on Titan’s ending and opening themes never disappoint man. This ending has such beautiful visuals and implications, I love it. Halcyon my man does an awesome job on the cover as always. I really like his covers. You can check out the video here.
The Rumbling by Skar Productions
So The Rumbling is already very metal and I didn’t think a more metal version of it is possible till I stumbled on this. I am so glad I stumbled on this video though; these dudes went ham on this cover. It’s the first time I ever listened to either of the people on this video but the cover sounds awesome. If you are a fan of metal like me, you will love it. You can check out the video here.
Obito’s Theme by Ru’s Piano
Obito is a sad character, even by Naruto standards. His backstory is probably one of the most relatable ones for a lot of people. Everything that happened to him is really a tragedy and his theme reflects that. The melody is very lonely and often is only carried by the strings. Ru does a phenomenal job with this cover. You can really feel the emotion in this cover. Check out the video here.
Akuma no Ko by Animenz
Common guys, I had to put this. Animenz is back with another awesome cover and his infamous 10-hands technique. Such an amazing cover man, Animenz’s arrangements are a step above most people. It really takes skill to match his arrangements. His covers always sound so perfect and fantastic man. I was so happy when I saw him drop Akuma no Ko’s cover. Really hope he does The Rumbling as well but for now, you can check out this awesome cover here.
That is all for now. Let me know your thoughts in the comments. We had some awesome covers this week so don’t forget to check them out. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!
