(So much capitals…)

1. BLUE BLAZE
Here is yet another Blazblue tie-in song, and will it live up to the standards of it’s fellow Blazblue songs? Well, Faylan seems to have nailed it yet again. Fast, sharp, and pounding techno-rock opens up the song. The techno-rock is extremely dynamic and vibrant, don’t forget catchy. Sometimes, it even reaches the levels of heavy metal. Faylan’s powerful voice is back but sounding even better than usual, sounding more fierce than ever before. There is  much more elements involved in this song, an uproar of dubstep mixed in with the techno-rock makes this very chaotic but amazing. Even with all of the chaos, there are a few quiet parts, well, not very quiet exactly. Towards the end, we are greeted with Faylan counting down with a flurry of dubstep until we get a mouthful multiple guitar chords destroying everything while still making it sound so epic.

2. BELIEVE
So it starts off with some epic violin-ing and some major chanting too! (Thank you to Yuki for teaching me that word) Faylan soon enters the fray, and in a good way too. Her vocals coupled with the chanting choir in the background singing in english, creates a very uplifting symphony which sounds amazing! It’s very spunky to say the least, well I guess it has to since it’s very up lifting. Faylan is backed up with her choir for the most part of the song, which gives it this gutsy tone to it, plus, with the powerful instrumentation,   it  sounds very strong throughout the entire song.

Wow… Just wow…. Faylan seems to be releasing really great singles recently. And it just seems to get better. There’s not a single reason to get disappointed with this single in my opinion. Both songs are very strong and impressive with what they do. Although, it seems like the BlazBlue tie-in song wins yet again, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t listen to BELIEVE. I have to say, this is probably the most fun I had reviewing.

Rating: (Of course it’s a…) 5/5
