~ Sound Horizon ~
 
I recently listened to them and liked very much... It's very good!!

Some of the latest album-singles from Sound Horizon:

Shounen wa Tsurugi wo - http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E5%B0%91%E5...700299-1837965

Seisen no Iberia - http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E8%81%96%E6...pf_rd_i=562060

But, I cannot find its lyrics, does anyone have any idea where I can find..?

clynia 2007-08-09 22:23

Do you know their Japanese names?
I can only find some Japanese lyrics,but I don't know the song's names' pronunciation so I don't know which you want .And it's too difficult for me to translate them. If you like I can give you all of the lyrics I find but I don't think it's useful

they got some unique music. at first i thought they were from the I've trance group since they sounded like one but nope. =\

Oh, thank you very much for the lyrics, clynia ;)
Especially for Black Chronicle... But, where did you find it, could you tell me?

And, I think their names are:

「少年は剣を」
1. 終端の王と異世界の騎士 ~The Endia & The Knights~
2. 緋色の風車 ~Moulin Rouge~
3. 神々が愛した楽園 ~Belle Isle~

「聖戦のイベリア」
1. 争いの系譜
2. 石畳の緋き悪魔
3. 侵略する者される者

I found the names from jap wiki: http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound_Horizon
Thanks again...

It's my pleasure

here is a Chinese forum for SH fans

After reading this thread, I decided to take a look at these guys... And, after listening to most of their stuff, my verdict is: they're fucking awesome! :D Quite original, too...

withanorchid 2007-08-18 20:42

my first thread here.. XD

SH is now gaining great popularity among the J-POP fans in China. if you search "幻想乐团" in www.baidu.com(the biggest search engine of China), you'll get thousands of related links containing original lyrics and Chinese translations..pity there's no English translations I reckon....maybe 'cos the lyrics are too poetic >_<

Shounen wa Tsurugi wo and Seisen no Iberia are the lattest albums....I personally recommend some older but marvellous ones, such as Elysion and LOST.

I listened to a few songs on youtube and find them not to be quite as forgettable as your average j-pop. But then, they're not very special either...I might actually like them (or not) if I gave them a chance and bought an album but I probably won't. One of their live performances on youtube was really funny though. ^^

I wouldn't call them J-Pop. They're more like a mixture of (light) power metal and some branches of pop. They cover a really diverse variety of styles.

Mueti 2007-08-20 02:54

Isn't all Japanese music being called J-something outside of Japan...? Well, whatever, I'm not that good when it comes to labelling genres anyway. :D

Do you have links to any Japanese lyrics? I can, more or less, read it, but I lack enough experience browsing in Japanese so I've been having trouble finding them. My last resort will be transcribing the lyrics myself, but that would suck awfully... (though it could be used as an assignment for my Japanese class :D).

I like sound horizon, especially Chronicle 2nd. You can't call them pop music really, I think it's more along the lines of music drama, or opera.

I will try to translate one of them (it's not lyrics by the way, it's just a story). I know it will probably suck horribly since I learned my japanese from playing erogames, but I will try my best.

The second track in CD: Chronicle 2nd

Thanks for the translation!!! I've been looking EVERYWHERE for these! If possible, could you also translate the thrid track from Seisen no Iberia? All of the historical references has gotten me interested :D

Chrono Helix 2008-01-29 05:01

2 of my favourites are Ark and 澪音の世界(Rein no Sekai)

Asamidori 2008-01-30 04:10

Sound Horizon lyric translation is evil. Pure evil. The fact that every single song is a story of their own and when in the same album/single, they're all somehow related. (I mean, Revo managed to link Hoshikuzu no Harnais from Roman with Rein no Sekai. OTL )

I even sorta kinda give up doing transliteration for their songs because Revo loves to use different languages from Europe. = =

kadou 2008-03-28 06:15

Sound Horizon! Omg~~! If anyone is still looking for lyrics, I have them up on my lyrics site:

http://azaeri.closet-psycho.net

I'm a huge fan 8D ..And yeah, I was crazy enough to transliterate them.

Yeah, but that's what makes Revo brilliant. I mean many artists use various languages in their material, but Revo does it in such a flawless way.

Asamidori 2008-03-29 17:17

^ Also give translators headaches if they don't know what language was used or don't understand that language. >_> (Two thumbs up to the Japanese that actually went throught the whole soramimi-ness to figure out the lyrics, especially the talking parts.)

Same_Shark 2008-03-30 10:47

They use a lot of French, don't they?

Asamidori 2008-04-03 15:21

Anything from English (Chronicle / Elysion / etc.) to French (Roman) to German (KiriMukou single).

There may be more though... (Since I can't recall what was the language used in Iberia.)
