Song of the Week! 30 November 2019

Another November has went and gone, and with that are also the American Thanksgiving day and -more spread to the rest of the world- the consumism-fueled celebration that is the Black Friday.

As a follow-up to such spirits, here's something 'black'-related from us!

First Video: Solitude Star

Solitude Star Harusaki x beet
  春先 x beet

The newest Namco Original introduction with Donder Pack Vol.26 is a rocking composition with double vocals. While the vocalized middle is tame at only mid- to high-★8 ranges, the opening and ending guitar parts are so intense, each features some 130-odd-note killer pattern with complex mixed streams and 24th separation within 16ths. That would likely take away clears from unprepared Donders.

First Video: Taiko Switch's November Newcomers

This month's new song releases for the Switch game, have come, each in different DLC packs. The One Piece Anime's 22nd opening theme fares with an instrumental-lead charting approach and some slight scrolling speed changes, while the latest Taiko-tailored rendition out of Beethoven's works is charted similarly to Puchipochi, fearsome long clusters and frequent tempo changes included!

First Video: Tenkyuu no Ritsu

While apologizing for us not covering today's feature on its intended release date, we offer you the latest of the Saturday offenders from the arcade front, sporting a chart where time signature changes are the name of the game. Watch out for that long and convoluted note cluster, too!

Song of the Week! 9 November 2019

Time for a 9-star Oni song! Quite fitting to do so in the 9th day of the ninth month of the year (at least, according to the ancient Roman calendar), isn't it?

Twitter Snippet (November 8 2019): Shedding Celestial Tears of Joy for Song Addition

We are having a pretty nice streak of one weekend warrior addition per 2-3 weeks since late September. We are also seeing a lot of composers with Konami/Sound Voltex appearance crossing over to Taiko no Tatsujin. This new tune coming tomorrow (November 9) just builds onto both chains.

This month in Nintendo Switch Version DLC news: Taiko Team may be out of Tatsujin Challenges to put into a pack, as November gives us a fresh batch of bright shock with Donder Pack -Lightning- (ドンだーパック -ライトニング-), including a brand new rendition of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata as hinted by the title's furigana. (NB. aside from being coined to mean "Taiko no Tatsujin player", "donder" also means "thunder" in Dutch corresponding with the "lightning" subtitle)

There is also one piece of news for the more mainstream audience, since theme songs from the One Piece anime are featured in the One Piece Theme Song Pack (ワンピース主題歌パック), including one series-debut addition.
