8/10s we're playing with the big boys now

#26 Crusader: No Regret - The Traveler (Remix)
Rating: 8/10
Have I heard this before?: No
Nominator: @SuperbVEVO (2/5)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1-hXJRa-OY

'90s PC GAME SOUND IS THE BEST, back in the early MP3 days back when they first started experimenting outside of chiptune/MOD/MIDI stuff where it still had that "computery" sound but was super clean too. This, and stuff like classic C&C, AoE2, StarCraft, etc. I even hear a bit of similarity to The Terminator (Sega CD) soundtrack in this one too with that awesome reverby synth providing the backdrop for this. Banger rock song with a kickass aesthetic.

#25 Gloryhammer - Rise of the Chaos Wizards
Rating: 8/10
Have I heard this before?: Yes
Nominator: @Janus5k (3/5)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGV6bCTMM5w

My roommate only fairly recently discovered power metal, but his tastes are very narrow and only plays the same dozen songs on repeat, all by either Gloryhammer or Brothers of Metal. Gloryhammer always seemed to be more of a parody of all the cheesiness in power metal to me, at which point I'd rather just listen to the classics, and as far as going all out on the cheese goes, I feel other bands like Pathfinder (oh hi one of their songs got nominated too) do it better. But with that being said, this is actually my favorite Gloryhammer song, and that chorus at 1:05 is one of my favorite moments in the whole genre! Honestly my only gripe with this is how overplayed it is, but it's still a very me style of music and a good song!

#24 Enigma - Silence Must Be Heard
Rating: 8/10
Have I heard this before?: No
Nominator: @azuarc (2/5)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCUran3CDFg

Enigma is another band I've enjoyed but haven't really dived deep into their discography. My friend was really big into them back in middle school, and I always liked their New Age influence. I was happily surprised to see that one of their songs ended up as the ending theme to one of the seasons of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Groovy song, love the echo effect and the trippy drum beat.

#23 Makai Toshi Niigata - Ukiyo-e Yokochou
Rating: 8/10
Have I heard this before?: No
Nominator: @DireKrow (2/5)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJjXxEhLhyI

Woah, sick piano jazz here, done in that "2 minute rhythm game song" format. This definitely does sound like something from a rhythm game, and judging by the related videos, it's apparently in Muse Dash? I've seen Muse Dash on sale on Steam several times and have considered picking it up, but my backlog is already huge. This could also work in a game like Deemo which focuses on the piano lol. Fast-paced + melodic + jazzy + piano are all points that work in favor of me enjoying a song, and this sounds like something that would have a pretty fun chart to play.

#22 Perfect Blue - Uchida's Theme
Rating: 8/10
Have I heard this before?: No
Nominator: @Place (1/5)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtGPTaOO4kE

NOW THIS HERE is a really cool genre. I don't know the specific name, but there's a very specific category of really weird/trippy '90s anime soundtrack music that this song falls into, and I absolutely love this style!! This totally catches an old vibe I am suddenly reminded exists and am thus also dismayed that it isn't really in vogue anymore. Very mechanical "construction site" sound here (hi B.T. Dutch). Obnoxiously loud, in a good way!

#21 Pathfinder - When the Sunrise Breaks the Darkness
Rating: 8.2/10
Have I heard this before?: No
Nominator: @Janus5k (3/5)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5uZl-qTIqc

I just wanna say, Pathfinder is the coolest thing to happen to Power Metal within recent years (I say "recent" but they've actually been around for a while now huh). I actually haven't listened to this song of theirs before, but I am familiar with some of their other stuff (FWIW Beyond The Space, Beyond The Time would've gotten a 10/10 rating, and I think I actually nominated that song for tazzy's ranking many years back lol). Pathfinder is super cheesy, but they go hard af and it's always fun to listen to them! I feel like their music is a big culmination of the genre, matching DragonForce guitar, with the symphonic/fantasy elements of Rhapsody of Fire, and the crazy vocal range you'd find from Lost Horizon.

AGHHH that cheesy little keyboard melody at 3:14 I could've sworn I've heard in another metal song somewhere else but my searching has come up short. But yeah, Pathfinder is super cool!

Have I heard this before?: No
Nominator: @SuperbVEVO (1/5)
Link: https://soundcloud.com/mohamed-ashraf-ahmed/camel-lost-and-found-1

Soundcloud link because the YouTube upload died! I'd like to start off by saying that of all the songs nominated for my topic, this is the one out of all the nominations I've moved up the furthest from my initial impressions spot. Also, second only to the #1 ranking song, this is the nomination I've relistened to the most! When I first heard this, I wasn't too crazy for the vocalist, but the style has grown on me, and the instrumental aspect of this song is excellent! I can't say I've heard of this band before, but apparently they were pretty big for the prog rock genre. Definitely has that cool '70s classic/prog rock sound to it, and I love when rock bands use the rock organ like that (Deep Purple vibes again)

#19 Zombieland Saga - Atsuku Nare
Rating: 8.3/10
Have I heard this before?: No
Nominator: @PIayer_0 (5/5)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqTaJmvDpPc

ANOTHER DEAD YOUTUBE LINK AAAAA, I really liked the first link you provided since it highlighted all the singers' parts, but the uploader yoinked their channel off the internet, so we'll have to listen to this without it.

SO FINALLY PIayer_0/haha oh no has their first song eliminated (ALL SONGS IN TOP 20 AAAAAAAA congratulations)! Alright so I've never actually watched Zombieland Saga. I read the title and am reminded of that 2009 movie "Zombieland" and then remember just how overdone the zombie genre was in the '00s. But apparently this is an anime about Zombie Idols?? You can't see it here, but in the original upload one of the singers had the title "The Legendary" next to her name, I don't know if that's canon to the show or not but I found it amusing.

"Idol Anime" music is generally very hit or miss for me. Stuff like Love Live has some real good songs to come from it, but a lot of its music is just kinda generic pop. It was a good show and all, would recommend, but I still don't entirely get idol culture. As for Zombieland Saga, I might just have to give this show a try, who knows.

This song is a lot more "powerful" than what I was expecting from the thumbnail. This has a real bopping melody with strong chorusey vocals GUYS WHEN THEY DO THE WHOAH WHOAH WHOAH AT 1:49 I CAN'T UNHEAR THROUGH THE FIRE AND FLAMES SOMEONE PLEASE HELP and I was never expecting one of the best idol songs I've heard to come from a zombie anime!

Highschool of the Dead + Love Live = SCHOOL LIVE?? it all makes sense now

#18 Thousand Memories - Ten Saints
Rating: 8.3/10
Have I heard this before?: Yes, I even used this in a VGMGG!
Nominator: @NFUN (1/5)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQM6PE_-ni0

Alrighty folks, gather 'round and listen to this song. You've listened to it? Good!! Now listen to this.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2guiRH2FsSk

Now if you have listened carefully you will notice this vague little detail that they are nearly the EXACT SAME SONG @#@#@#$%6

Ever since I discovered the VGM work that is Thousand Memories - Ten Saints, this has bugged me considerably. I don't know if Keisuke Ito knew of Nefertiti and was directly copying Daisuke Achiwa's style here, or if it just happened to end up like this, but I can't unhear one while listening to the other. Also, Nefertiti was something I used to nominate every year for VGMC so NFUN might just be fucking with me here. ;>_> (it feels like a parody of the song, or more esoterically, a parody of my tastes <_<)

The fact that Diet Nefertiti piggybacks off of one of my favorite VGM ever is enough to catapult it up this high in my rankings, but at the same time knock it down a few points due to lack of originality. Judging this song by its own merits, I really love the heavy metal eletric guitar, the synth keyboards, and awesome guitar solos. This actually is a really good song, and plays into my love of melodic power/speed metal! Good pick for the topic.

If Nefertiti itself, more specifically the improved extended version from Atelier Meruru was nominated, it would've gotten rank #4

Zombieland Saga pitch because it's my sworn duty: It's a great parody of idol shows that sneakily transitions into a genuine idol show of its own. There's a lot of slapstick comedy but it's also really good at playing with different genres and moods when it wants to. I love the songs for being really distinct from one another and the full range of such a diverse group of voices! Unfortunately, this also means there's no more hard rock/metal songs to recommend*. Also it has Okabe Rintarou yelling at zombie idols!

*Well... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zows_Bbd2MM

I honestly never remember what Nefertiti sounds like, but I guess I was even more spot-on this time by calling this FL81 genre. thank kaonashi for this one (in that he nommed it for me, not that he uploaded it, which he apparently did)

#17 Nightwish - Last of the Wilds
Rating: 8.5/10
Have I heard this before?: Probably, I don't remember
Nominator: @azuarc (1/5)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWTdFolXEgA

Back during around 2009~ish Nightwish was my favorite band and I listened through their entire discography at the time. This one I don't really remember, but I probably heard it at some point. Nightwish is mostly known for their "epic"-style vocals, but their instrumental tracks are all great too (my favorite being Moondance). Heavy metal guitars and folk strings are always a cool combination, catchy melody here, this has all the makings of another good Nightwish song.

Y'know as much as I like Nightwish, I've never been too crazy about all the copycat bands that have come after trying to emulate their style. They're able to get the same style of female-lead vocals down, but are never able to reach that same level of "energy" that Nightwish has and has made them so great all these years (except Epica, they're great too)

Not as much of a fan, but admittedly I haven't really listened to their recent stuff much (hell, Amaranth is probably their newest song I was really big into)

Actually sometime around 2010 was when I stopped really diving deep into new power metal releases in general. I'm kinda clueless as to what's going on in the scene nowadays

AAAAAAHHH, I love jazz!!! For my car, I specifically got a receiver that supported HD Radio just so that I could tune in to the jazz station. I don't even know where to start with this song, it just sounds cool all the way through! Really cool use of the different instruments here in what's basically this crazy super-energized horn ensemble. (For as much as I rag on trumpets, there are some cases where I love them and classic jazz is a perfect example and there are a number of trumpet-centric songs still left in this ranking!!). This is the kind of music I like to put on when going for a nice cruise, and I could listen to this for hours on end, like I could just jump into this piece at any point and it'd be every bit as good. These solos are all pretty sick, got some very skilled musicians here lol

#15 Kobaryo - The Lightning Sword
Rating: 8.7/10
Have I heard this before?: No
Nominator: @DireKrow (1/5)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptylOKoOWDo

You know what sounds cool? Speedcore! You know what also sounds cool? Power Metal!! LET'S SLAP THE TWO COMPLETELY UNRELATED GENRES TOGETHER!!! Just by seeing the track title and the album art I knew this was going to be power metal, but I was not expecting this to be by a Japanese speedcore artist. The more I listen to this though, the more I realize it's actually not too crazy of a combination. These are both melodic-centric genres that often exceed tempos of 200 BPM, so why not. Pretty fun song, although my main gripe is that this is very obviously inspired by DragonForce, to the point that I'm pretty sure this is a parody. I feel like this exact solo is taken from one of their songs (not sure which one, a lot of their material sounds the same). Anyways this is a better DF song than the actual DF song that was nominated, so all's well! I always enjoy when music mixes together two very different genres that I like, it's fun to see what they end up coming up with.

Have I heard this before?: No
Nominator: @UF8 (2/5)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPVPThyhL9s

Woah, this sounds like something straight from the Rosenkreuzstilette soundtrack! (although UF8, being our resident royalty-free VGM expert, probably already knows that it doesn't have a "proper" soundtrack and is all royalty-free stuff from a number of different artists) The reason I have this ranked so high is because it totally reminds me of my VGM taste circa 2011 (about 1-2 years after discovering VGMC and B8) back when I was all into that really cheesy sounding MIDI speed metal with some neoclassical riffs, giving it those Dracula vibes. This is exactly the sort of song I would push hard for in VGMC noms only for it to lose 42-8. Melodic metal high-energy typical 2011 FL81 tastes song, guilty pleasure tier.

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2hCFSQnvXI

More vampire metal! I'm pretty sure "vampire metal" isn't even a real genre, but it is my favorite type of music ever aesthetic-wise (Castlevania music rules). The song is being sung in Italian (I think?) which has always been one of my favorite sounding languages for songs. Dark gothic vibes make everything sound cooler! Piano + strings + electric guitar = great combo!! This is on the better end of symphonic metal.

Congrats to Snake on performing a lot better in this ranking!

#12 Ronald McDonald - U.N. Owen Was Her?
Rating: 9/10
Have I heard this before?: Yes
Nominator: @PIayer_0 (4/5)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q16KpquGsIc


Nope!

Somehow, this is the song that everyone was watching to see where it would end up placing! It obviously wasn't #1, but I do like this a lot more than I probably should!

2007-2008 was the peak of meme culture. 2010~ish had too much mainstream crap going on like rage comics and nyan cat, and other stuff appealing to the early reddit crowd, and today's memes are just esoteric Wojak edits that don't even make sense anymore (yes I see the irony of talking about that when discussing this video of all things). Stuff like this and old YTPs were good ol' stupid fun. I guess "nostalgia" is why I have this ranked higher than the other "haha funny" songs, but maybe I am just an old grumpy man now!! SiIva rips are sort of a revival of this dumb sort of humor, so that's refreshing to see.

Yes, this video was my first exposure to the Touhou franchise. I wouldn't actually get around to playing any of the games until a year later when one of my high school friends (wow it's been that long) got me to start out with one of the fighting games of all things. Song itself is pretty good, it's based off of the COOL&CREATE arrangement of U.N. Owen rather than the original in-game song.

CUT MY LIFE INTO PIECES

#11 RAY-KUDRYAVKA musiX - Last Resort
Rating: 9/10
Have I heard this before?: No
Nominator: @UF8 (1/5)
Link: https://archive.org/download/RAY_KUDRYAVKA_musiX/23_Last_Resort_vbr.mp3

The main thing I think of when listening to this is "man this is way too good to not be uploaded onto YouTube". The song itself isn't too complicated or anything but it has all the makings of music I love! It's repetitive, but with each verse keeps things fresh and exciting! This has more of that MIDI electric guitar like in Rolling Rose, but overall this one sounds a lot more expertly produced. Was this composed for a game, or is it from some sort of Doujin album? (Or something else entirely altogether?) That keyboard synth 33 seconds in (and repeats a few more times) is my favorite part of the song! Very much the same style of music I always used to nominate for VGMC!

Edit: Forgot to mention, but that chord progression at 6:29 reminds me of some VGMC JRPG boss theme and I can't remember which!! >_<

Huzzah, finally time for the top 10~

So Ray Kudryavka is a freeware doujin shmup series that dates back to the late 90s i think, lasting up until the mid-00s. From the second entry (X) onwards this nagi guy volunteered to produce the soundtracks for it (inspired by the quality of the first entry which lacked bgm altogether). This soundtrack album happened after a few games, and apparently this was basically the culmination of his efforts over those years. I think he said something like that this was exactly the song he wanted to make when he originally offered to do them. So it's basically... all of the above? (okay, only the first two)

It's also the only song on that soundtrack album that i know for certain where it originated, since the games don't run nowadays and there's pretty much no footage of any of them, so I don't actually know which games the other ones came from. This one though, definitely never used in any of the games. Or at least, not before this album.

also yeah the games and the soundtracks are way too good to not be on youtube but they aren't because... shrug. apparently these games were pretty popular, there's about as many fanbooks and doujins of them as games like Suguri and Hellsinker but weirdly the series seems very obscure (almost totally unknown) in the west.

Pyre was the one person to try and guess the winner, and did manage to guess a song in the top 10, so congrats on your song making it this far! (sorry PIayer_O this is pyre's song now)

This song was my JAM back when I played Rock Band 1 (man I miss those games)! This is my uhhh, 3rd favorite song from the original Rock Band! I still LOVE that guitar intro, always hooks me in and gets me to stick with the rest of the song. So yeah, it's a song I've heard probably dozens or hundreds of times, but it still sounds as fresh as the first time I've listened to it. It's hard rock that manages to both pay homage to the classics but at the same time not sound like anything else like it. It's hard to classify just what exact subgenre of rock/metal this is, I mean it's "prog" but it's also it's own thing. Pretty solid guitar solo too, but my favorite thing about this song is the vocalist. He has this very distinct way of enunciating all of the lyrics, but it comes out sounding really neat!

#9 Made in Abyss - Tomorrow
Rating: 9.3/10
Have I heard this before?: Yes
Nominator: PIayer_0 (2/5)
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vV571RZSltY

Hey, it's that song I liked enough that I actually used it in an anime music guessing game over in the Discord! Let me just say, that Made in Abyss is my single favorite anime to come from the 2010s decade, and that is not an easy top choice to make! I cannot recommend this show enough, and encourage everyone here to watch it!! The soundtrack is also amazing and I would put it in my top 5 anime soundtracks of all time.

This song is crazy! It's calming but at the same time manages to invoke a feeling of standing before the great expanse. The first minute has this weird ethereal feeling and I don't even know what half of these instruments are called. Then it switches to emotional anime music mode, and back to "cool space sounds" then theatrical weirdness AND THAT COOL VOCAL PART!!! I can't really compare this to anything else, but this song kicks ass! Kevin Penkin did an absolutely stellar job with this show's score.

watch Made in Abyss

Aw ya go my Welcome Home.

Aw ya go my Kevin Penkin.

Made in Abyss was a pretty cool show. I don't know what my expectations for the franchise going forward but I really liked the original TV series at least.

I haven't even watched the movie yet! Was going to check it out w/ my roommate but he moved out beforehand, then COVID shut all the theaters down

very close second place for "Best Anime of the 2010s" I'd actually give to Vinland Saga

Coheed and Cambria took a while to grow on me, but once they clicked, they did it in a big way.

Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness is one of the most ridiculous and awesome titles ever for one of the best albums ever.

I'm oblivious to how big Welcome Home is in rock/metal circles, to me it's always been "that song from the trailer for 9"...

The Made in Abyss movie was a wild ride and left me very emotionally exhausted! I remember hearing what sounded like a spiritual successor to Tomorrow in it, but haven't tried looking it up yet.
