Wagakki Band get back on track with “Hangeki No Yaiba” for ‘Attack On Titan’


Wagakki Band didn’t live up to my expectations with their previous release, but their latest release “Hangeki No Yaiba“, the theme song for the ‘Attack On Titan‘ TV drama, was more of what I was expecting.

The cinematography, the meshing of traditional instruments and a rock touch, and the enka-influenced vocals gave me what put them on the map to begin with, and the production of the track wasn’t just noise for the sake of noise this time around. It wasn’t nearly as cluttered and messy despite incorporating a lot of elements, and that’s what allowed it to excel.

I actually wish K-pop would do some of this, as it’s actually a way to truly create original sounding music that the West hasn’t/cannot do.
