The theme is “Apparitions Stalk the Night”! In order to create the feeling of you being chased down by a starving Rumia, the key is gradually becoming more exciting towards the end.😂 I hope you will be able to listen to the full size soon!

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…

-Stack

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…😂

愉快な墓場でごきげんよう [Adieu, to this Lively Graveyard] || 暁Records

愉快な墓場でごきげんよう
yukai na hakaba de gokigenyou
Adieu, to this Lively Graveyard

original: リジッドパラダイス (Rigid Paradise)
from: 東方神霊廟 ~ Ten Desires

arrangement: Stack Bros.
lyrics/vocals: Stack
album: 東方スチームパンク (Touhou Steampunk)
circle: 暁Records


The title is a wordplay with the phrase “Welcome, to X!”. Because, well, if someone is dead you greet them with ‘adieu’, right?

There are several other wordplays in the song:
三歩 (sampo) [three steps] is a pun of 散歩 (sampo) [to go for a walk].
楽死んで (tanoshinde) is a pun of tanoshii [to enjoy] and shinde [to die].

The lyrics are mostly written in simple Japanese using the Kansai dialect.
Since this song was written for the Touhou Steampunk Compilation, there are many words from that field used in the song.
The parts written in brackets weren’t given in the booklet.

Never Say Goodbye

arrangement: Stack Bros.
lyrics/vocals: Stack
album: Shout It Out Loud!!!
circle: 暁Records


What’s the border between daydreams and reality? Should I do it or should I not, should I go or should I not?
My brain chooses a vague dimension. I’m free to come and go and stay.

But I want to meet you again.
So I won’t say goodbye… Never Say Goodbye!

-Stack


The parts in the brackets were added by-ear, so they might have errors.

from: 東方紅魔郷 ~ Embodiment of Scarlet Devil

arrangement: Stack Bros.
lyrics/vocals: Stack
album: Shout It Out Loud!!!
circle: 暁Records


There’s no official comment about this song, but it seems that Patchouli found the sealed away, ancient story of a magician that summoned a dragon to bring destruction upon the land in one of her grimoires. It seems as if the written down words were so full of magic, that they practically pulled her consciousness into the book and it feels as if she had really been there.

A Melody’s COLORS

original: 幻想浄瑠璃 [Illusionary Joururi]
from: 東方輝針城 ~ Double Dealing Character

arrangement/lyrics/vocals: Stack
album: Shout It Out Loud!!!
circle: 暁Records


Facial expressions, emotional expressions, the colors of a melody.
The color’s gradation that we paint suddenly gives us power,
And so we’ve got a purpose in this world.

Even if my life is only temporary, I want to be living.
I want to be as I am.
Because we can surely meet a brand-new melody tomorrow.
