Metal Monday #3, here we go!
For some odd reason I just had the desire to devote an entire week to my third best liked character, Mokou. Maybe cause I played her in ULiL and she's a blast to play as. Now that I think about it, I could do the same for my other nine favorite characters - Or yours. If you like the idea and want a special week for a character (that isn't Cirno because fuck that fairy), tell me.
Anyway. I know that, technically, Extend Ash is not her theme per se but rather EX-Keine's, but let's just gloss over that, aye? Especially when considering the sheer awesome that this arrange is. Okay, yes, it is Demetori, so anything other than demented (yes, you may hit me for that pun) good instrumental metal is not an option. Especially nowadays when I vastly prefer vocalized to instrumental arranges or music in general, I still have to give Demetori kudos for how great their work is.
As per usual, it captures the melody very well while upping the ante with pounding drums, screaming guitar riffs and booming basses. It's also the perfect length. Much as I love Demetori - or many other metal circles - many of their instrumental arranges are just too long for me. It also never let's up, it kicks off intense and stays intense until the very end. As for my favorite part... hm, I actually don't have one to be honest. Maybe the bridge (I think you call it that?) that starts at 2:39 and lasts until 2:59 cause it's just marvelous.
