Episode 55: GuitarFreaks/DrumMania V

Yo yo yo, hello everyone and welcome back to the site. It’s been a little bit, so let’s try and get caught up on our playlists, shall we? Episode 55 brought a playlist imported straight from the Motherland, glorious Japan. I grew up playing these music-rhythm games, released ages before even the idea of Guitar Hero or Rock Band were conceived. As usual, Japan was ahead of the curve. There’s some kickass rock-centric tracks, as you may expect, but also plenty of more unexpected tracks you wouldn’t think you’d find on such an industrial-y looking game (see tracks by Dormir, Anettai Maji-SKA Bakudan, and Wannyan Panic). Hope you enjoyed this week!

Note: As usual, I couldn’t find anywhere legal to stream all the tracks from, so I’ve linked to an Amazon listing for the actual CD, should you want to have your own official copy.
