Last month Materia Collective gave us something related to one of Final Fantasy‘s famous installment. A soundtrack album consisting of 100 tracks that was divided into two albums with 50 tracks each, Spira: Music from Final Fantasy X Zanarkand Mix and Besaid Mix. This month, they have something for us again. Another soundtrack album, NieR: Glory to Mankind from the popular NieR: Automata.
The album, created by amazing artists ROZEN and REVEN, it has 13 tracks with unique arrangements of live vocal and instrumental performances of key tracks originally composed by Keiichi Okabe, Keigo Hoashi, and the team at MoNACA. It is available today digitally on Bandcamp, iTunes, and Spotify. If you are interested in having a physical copy of it, you can get the Compact Disc version on Bandcamp. Be careful, though, as the physical edition is limited.
Now, do you wonder who is this ROZEN and REVEN? And why are they amazing? If you already know about them, then it’s good. But if not, you can learn about them on ROZEN’s official website and REVEN’s youtube channel. Here are a short introduction for both artists.
Rozen is a G.A.N.G. Award-winning arranger and composer who creates music for media. His arrangements, often orchestral and choral in scope, are praised for their immersion and emotional weight. Rozen’s orchestrations have been commissioned by the L’Orchestre de Jeux Video in Canada, the Angel City Chorale in Los Angeles, the Game Music Ensemble at UCLA, and the Folklore Guild in San Diego, CA.
Reven is a singer, songwriter, and composer known for her pure and versatile voice. She sings on many of Rozen’s releases and was a featured vocalist on Theophany’s Time’s End II.
