I don’t think I have to tell you about Macbeth and Ikaros, but Ajax’s and Helen’s origins may not be known to many people. They are figures from Greek mythology about the Trojan War. Helen was the reason the war broke out after she got abducted by Prince Paris of Troy, although promised to Kind Menelaus of Sparta. Additionally, she was described as the most beautiful woman to ever exist.
Ajax was one of the heroes of the Trojan War. After Achilles was killed, Ajax insisted he should get his armor. However, when it was given to Odysseus instead, he set out to kill him but was manipulated by Athena to kill the spoil of the Greek army. This filled him with so much shame, he eventually committed suicide.

Now that Yuzuki Risa left Yuuhei Satellite, I don’t think they’ll ever release this sample song on a future album. Which is a shame, because it’s really beautiful and so much unlike their usual style! I still hope I’m wrong though and you’ll be able to enjoy this song one day as well.

Are you ready for Halloween yet?? I can’t wait to carve out a pumpkin and dress up as a spooky ghost or something…👻
I also watched Monster Hotel last year and it’s a lovely and unique Halloween (or in general monster movie) everyone can enjoy. If you haven’t watched it yet, check it out! I believe it’s still available on Netflix.
Thank you very much to Jordi for sharing the lyrics with me!
A halloweenish (b-class horror?) Septette arrangement!
Speaking of vampires: ~Blah-blah-blah~ (I’ve watched Monster Hotel)
During the death of night, the scarlet moon awakens.
Now then, tonight. I will get drunk on your blood…
The original song is “Septette for the Death Princess”! In order to create the beginning of the Monster Festival with lightning and screams, I cracked in a raw-bass attack like feeling in the first quarter. 🎃👻 I’m glad if you listen to it despite all that…😂
