Bright Burning Shout (single)
Review by Michelle Minikhiem
Most of us have heard of the rock and dance powerhouse that is T.M. Revolution, but he’s rebranded himself under his true name of Nishikawa Takanori for his newest single, “Bright Burning Shout”.
Following in what has been a longtime trend for this masterful cross-genre artist, the song is the opening theme for the new anime “Fate/EXTRA Last Encore”.
“Bright Burning Shout” is fresh while remaining distinctly within Nishikawa’s wheelhouse of energizing pop rock perfectly suited for an action-adventure anime. Longtime fans and newcomers will find themselves easily hitting the repeat button for this bop.
The blending of piano and orchestral elements with melt-your-face-off electric guitar is absolutely seamless. As always, Nishikawa’s powerful vocals are the true driving force of this track. Fantastic stuff that you will be throwing on for speeding down the highway or to motivate yourself to bust out a sweat at the gym.
A career spanning over 20 years hasn’t slowed this man, and if this new single is any indication, he won’t be stopping anytime soon.
