Y'know, it can get hard sometimes to decide what the fuck I'm gonna post on Sooth(e) Your Freaking Beast at times. I mean, I DO have an eclectic range of genres I listen to (that, strangely, don't conflict at all - at least in my eyes they don't), and plenty of esoteric shit to share.
I've come to the conclusion that they're not ALL that completely esoteric though - I follow a couple of music blogs that do nothing but explicitly underground, internet only, soundcloud only type bands, albums, and personalities...and it really humbles my own attempts, y'knowwhatImean?
WIth that stated, I didn't set out to make this blog to become I WANNA BE THE VERY BEST BLOGGER THAT NO ONE EVER WAAAS or whatever have you. As is, if I did then Iron Maiden would be my Shiny Pikachu that I'd never evolve and defeat gods with.
...the fuck was I talkin' about?
Anyway, I've got two post ideas to do, but I'm going with a third. No, this isn't the metal post (though I DO need to do one - my metal itch needs satisfyin'), and no this isn't the nineties post (again, itch that needs to be scratched).
Rather, this is all about the Vocaloid music I've been listening to as of late. Hell, once again they've inspired me to write yet another song about sadomasochistic relationships.
Yeah, weird huh?
Anyway, on to the show!
Firstus, let's get the non-metal ones out the way...'cuz they're just good.
Pitiful Pet Boy - Len Kagamine (I think I've posted this before. Don't care.)
Dat. Chorus. And dat everything while we're at it, hnnnngrasm.
Keepin' up the perv train, let's check out Len Kagamine's version of PON PON PON, the only version of it I like.
Paradichlorobenzene x Anti-chlorobenzene - Len and Rin Kagamine
...now AIN'T THAT A BITCH? They'll let you download the mashup song but won't let you embed? Huh.

Miku Hatsune - Love is War
Like any other fanfag, Love is War is amongst the first Miku/Vocaloid songs I heard and kinda sorta got me into it. Now I'm not like SOME fans that are "ALL VOCALOIDS ALL THE TIME!" especially since I see them as the start of both the whole Sharon Apple thing and the whole Skynet thing as well. On the other hand, it was only this recent week that I saw this video and I gotta admit that I've done some of those same kind of rockn' out motions while singing.
Perhaps it's a universal thing for vocalists? I just like stomping.
And now, time for something with a bit more rock behind it, yeah?
Miku Hatsune and Gumi - Matryoshka
Dig that beat, man, dig that riff. Not to mention I like the art style, all Gainax wit' it (y'know, outside of the jiggle physics where an entire tech team has to establish code and designwork for each breast), like FLCL and Dead Leaves-esque-ness.
Time to get to the good hurt.
Miku Zatsune and Miku Hatsune - Sweet So Sweet
In after "IT'S HAGANE MIKU YOU ASSHOLE" I don't give a fuck you weeaboo trash.
While I liked vocaloids enough, it was Zatsune's Sweet So Sweet that really made me just up and realize "Holy shit! You can do that with these things?!" and gave me the idea of using a vocaloid of my own voice when it comes time for the Corporate Machine to have a voice of its' own, all E.L.P. style. I mean, it's one thing to do the usual pop shit, but then suddenly THIS?
My god, dem riffs.
Miku Hagane - Marionette
Miku Hagane - Diarrhea
Now, Sweet So Sweet is DEFINITELY one of my vocaloid metal faves, but recently THIS 'un's been up there with it.
Kaito, Len, Luka, Miku (Hagane AND Hatsune I think), possibly Gakupo..just a whole fucking bunch of 'em really - Poetaster and Singing Dolls
Funny story, a poetaster is the word for an inferior poem.
Honestly it's the vocal layering and arrangements, just HNNNNNGRASM. I haven't been this turned on and pumped up at the same time for a looooong time.
I'm certain there's more titles and such, but for now this'll do, yeah? Quite a bit here to chew on anyway!
Next week, we'll see - it'll be either humans doing metal or humans from the nineties doing stuff.
In the meantime, care for a final vid from the Vocaloid mass?
Luka Megurine - Psychopath
I lied, have a second and a third vid.
Gumi Machigerita - Sunset Love Suicide
Luka Megurine - Until the Bitter End
Next post we'll have somethin' more for ya, yeah?
