For those who stil don’t know about them yet, Wagakki Band is a traditional Japanese instrument orchestra and rock band consisting of 8 members. You can find out more about them at their official site here.
I first got to know about them last November when a buddy told me about a mini album with covers of vocaloid songs, titled Yuko Suzuhana with Wagakki Band – Prologue. I fell in love instantly. The nijiro chouchou was so good that I looped it for the whole week.
The combination of traditional instruments and rock is so well fused into an unique style that its pure pleasure to my ears. After listening to the whole album, I have to say all the tracks in the album are my favourites, but nijiiro chouchou is still the best.
Listening to Episode.0 seriously let you realise how powerful Yuko’s voice is. Even though she is the back vocal, somehow, her voice is the most outstanding, and the part where she solo-ed, really really sexy.
I don’t know if its just me or Yuko’s voice kind of sound like Atsuko(angela) and Mizuki Nana combined together.
Here’s the cross fade and track list of the album:
