If you have played Saga Frontier II, Unlimited Saga or  FF13, you know who is Masashi Hamauzu :)

I just heard of his brand new project: Imeruat!
He teamed up with Mina an Ainu descent singer and 4 talentuous musicens from which Hijiri Kuwano! (Violin performer on Chrono cross, Noir...)
There is a new album called Black Ocean, which looks quite good !



I found an interesting review and an awesome track here!

The CD was only available in Japan until now, but a french label (Wayo Records) is now taking care of worldwide distribution and they ship for a reasonable price (cheaper than importing from Japan^^)

Shop link: http://shop.wayorecords.net/index.php?lang_id=2
I'm ordering now, hopefully I should receive my CD in few days!

Can't wait..

It is a very good album. That review you link to is written by me. ^_^

Apparently they're doing live performances of Black Ocean (or have already done them) in Japan. I'd love to see them do some shows at conventions in the US.

I received my precious package last week! and the handsigned picture was really there :)

No surprise, this is clealy a Hamauzu project, and what a great one!
It's a if he took the best from Saga Frontier II, FFX, FFXIII and XIII-2, with a spicy classical taste to give life to a wonderful atmosphere in which I was quickly immersed.
The track "Giant" is typically what I could expect on huge worldmap. Imeruat, is also one of my top-3 ! Mina's voice is always charming and efficiently adding this little something to the melodies.

If you have not had chance to listen yet, I recommand strongly this album!
I wish I could understand more of Ainu language now !
