The full theme song for Samurai Warriors 3 has finally been released and it is AMAZING.

The song (entitled Setsugekka -The End of Silence-) is sung by popular Japanese singer, GACKT. It is a performance that even GACKT boasts as one of his best.
In a recent interview, he said it is a song that captures "the feeling of thinking of someone who is lost to you, and the heartbreaking and painful emotions behind that... I wanted to create a mixture of elegance and evanescence."

          There was a part of me that went "ARGHHH! NOOO U !!!" but there was another part that said "quick, say something mildly witty"

          I went with the latter

      Squenix has a severe overuse of string instruments imo. Their theme songs get on my nerves if I listen to them too long...

          Squeenix has a severe overuse of pop songs imo. Some of the songs included in recent FF games have been...ugh. I miss the theme songs that made me go "WOW!"

          Speaking of Squeenix...Was I the only one who thought of Final Fantasy Versus XIII when I saw this music video?

          To be honest, I died a little inside when he voiced Genesis. I mean, really? GENESIS?

          Aside from the fact that he's a little bitch, I was close to punching the screen around the fifth time I heard "gift of the goddess."

          It's not that I hate strings, it's just that the tone that the string instruments have in most FF theme songs is just too...I dunno, it feels whiney and a bit fake. Not enough bass strings I think is the problem.

    It's been years since I bought one of his albums. Nice to see he still sounds the same.

    Pretty bad ass! Not bad, at all.

    LOL, but I still think Japanese hiphop artist ZEEBRA's song for "Ryƫ ga Gotoku: Kenzan!", Bushido, is the benchmark to beat:
