Clear - short story

A firey duo

Time to visit another possibly lesser known favorite of mine, when it comes to Sound Horizon stuff. It's "Ishidatami no Akai Akuma" (The Scarlet Demon of the Stone Pavement), which is one of three songs from the maxi single "Seisen no Iberia". It was released after the "Roman" album and before the "Moira" album. I think it's rather touching, so here we go.

Of important lyrics and translations

Anyone else into Sound Horizon? It's one of my favorite bands these days. :) I've been really enjoying some of the stories presented, with the Moira album being my favorite.

Speaking of the Moira album, I got a bit disappointed by the mistranslations I've seen, so here's my rant about that, followed by some impressions about what actually happens for those lyrics.

If you're curious about my favorite two songs from the album, they are "Meiou - Thanatos" and "Dorei-tachi no Eiyuu - Elefseus". "Meiou" is my absolute favorite Sound Horizon song, by the way. "Dorei-tachi no Eiyuu" gets points for giving me goosebumps the first couple times I heard it.
