CD15.5 "Truth Garden" - 30th album!
Hello, Nynthixia there!
30th album already... It's been 2 years and a half and here we are. Welcome to the garden of the truth, where the reality can be happy, weird... Or even hurtful.
Changelog time, a bit different from the others this time. If a song isn't listed here -> same as demo.
01. Alina (feat. CUL)
A quite heavenly song with some light ambience. Has some evolution parts.
02. Never Ending (feat. CUL)
[EXTENSION] Added bridge between last verse and last chorus
I agree, the bridge in the demo was weird!
04. Penelope (feat. Lily)
This one is the longest of all the album, more focused on a heartbreaking and dramatic ambience, making a good contrast with the previous track "Night Garden".
05. Simple Fantasy (feat. Tohoku Zunko)
[EXTENSION] Extended end
This track has still its little oddity thing, but I still like it.
06. Never Forget You (feat. Tohoku Zunko)
[INSTRUMENT] Added atmo choirs
Does it sound even more heavenly and sad?
07. Hidden (feat. GUMI)
[INSTRUMENT] Added kicks in first part of first verse
"Hidden" was complicated to create since its demo status. So well that I tried to look at everything I could do to make it good. There was just this missing.
08. CLIONE (feat. GUMI)
[INSTRUMENT] Added rolls
[EXTENSION] Added bridge before last chorus
The demo was quite too short so I extended it a bit and enhanced the dynamics.
09. Truth Left (feat. Tohoku Zunko)
[CAPELLA] Added harmonies for some parts
What was missing to the original! When I was listening to this song sometimes, I felt that some harmonies were missing, and I added them at some strategic parts. I let you enjoy it!
12. Hex Spell (feat. Lily)
[CAPELLA] Added global harmonies
[INSTRUMENT] Changed octave of last part of supersaw bridge
[INSTRUMENT] Added roll before last chorus
"Hex Spell" was made a bit before many other songs of this album and didn't have any harmonies. For all the tracks, these capellas were the hardest to do! Also gave a bit more dynamics at the end of the first bridge, this really needed it.
13. Megara (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
Punchy pop-like, and with a story that has nothing to do with the girl from the Disney movie. This is actually a sort of "parallel song" to "NANZIA" that was in the "Necrosis" album (CD15). If I had to choose some favorites in this album, would be tracks 8, 9 and 13!
14. HELENIA (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
[EXTENSION] Extended end
[INSTRUMENT] Added VFX and SFX
[INSTRUMENT] Added kicks at the end of the last bridge
[INSTRUMENT] Modified alarm roll in intro
[MIXDOWN] General mixing
This was a hell to mix again! A bit longer and more dynamic than the demo though. This was one of the tracks that required me the most time of work...
So, now the album is online, I have several announcements to make.
First, the October cover!
October 14th, "DIETRICH" with Lily. Yeah, I still have this plan in my mind, and it will be aired on MQube very soon! The instru was made by felichan for this one.
