The staff here at NerdLife practically live on their Spotify accounts. No matter if we are writing, editing, or gaming we always have music playing in the background. Game To This will showcase one of the tracks we have been rocking out to lately while we work! For the inaugural pick, I thought something a little off beat might be fun for our readers. Today I want to showcase my Game To This pick WagakkiBand’s Sebonzakura.
I’ve only recently discovered WagakkiBand while watching an episode of This Exists over on YouTube. They take a mixture of traditional Japanese culture and instruments and mix in some hard rock to create an awesome and unique sound. I speak no Japanese but I can’t help but bop my head and tap my foot while their tracks blast away in my headphones. NerdLife’s own Z3r0Png described it as sounding like the awesome theme to an anime. I agree with him, WagakkiBand is high energy and tons of fun, the traditional instruments give you the warm and fuzzies you get when the first notes hit during your favorite anime’s intro.
Not everyone will be as pumped about WagakkiBand as I am but the talent and radical aesthetic of the band are undeniable. Next time you boot up Conan Exiles, Overwatch, or Nioh jump into Spotify and let WagakkiBand create the soundtrack for you.
A few of their albums are available on Amazon (some free with Prime), and their new album is dropping March 22nd.
