Brave Wave has announced their biggest collaboration album to date, Giants, to commemorate their 10th anniversary.
The album includes a new original track by Saori Kobayashi (in collaboration with Takahiro Izutani) called “Terra Incognita”. There’s also a couple of new remixes from Panzer Dragoon Saga: “Art Thou the Holy One” by Lena Raine and Saori Kobayashi, and “Atolm Dragon” by Brave Wave’s in-house band Super Strikers and Lena Raine.
I’ve received a review copy and can say I’m absolutely delighted by what I hear. Panzer Dragoon fans will definitely want to listen to these three tracks; all three are fantastic, with the new rendition of Art Thou the Holy One (Sona Mi Areru Ec Sancitu) being particularly moving.
Check out websites from Giants where you can pre-order the album today (releasing April 19, 2024):
The album will be released in digital, CD, vinyl, and a signed & numbered vinyl edition that’s signed by the Japanese composers. The signed edition includes an exclusive demo cassette tape containing some of the original demo tracks that were created for the album.
Definitely check out Giants and whatever else Saori Kobayashi is planning in the future.
