Since I recently caught up with the third season of Attack on Titan, I realized that any song composed by Linked Horizon is simply god-tier. Therefore, I decided to upload a piano cover that I should have done a long time ago: A piano arrangement of the FULL version of Guren no Yumiya - the legendary first OP song from the first season!
Unlike my piano cover from 2013 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OB8_wfxWSGs) which was an extended TV-size, this full version arrangement follows the exact same song structure as the original song.
I tried to replicate the song as best as I could on the piano but it borders on the almost impossible. Just too many things is happening at the same in the musical score of the original Guren no Yumiya: Sword clashing SFX, epic guitar solos, ominous German narrating, monumental choir in the background, more German words, a full blown orchestra and basically, everything else Linked Horizon could have thought of. Guren no Yumiya is literally an overkill of a song. And that's why I love it so much.
Well then, I hope you enjoyed this small nostalgia throwback! I am also glad to finally catch up with the Attack on Titan franchise. I did not even have a chance to watch the second season of Attack on Titan until a few weeks ago, nor did I follow the Manga. I was basically completely clueless about the story after season 1 and for almost 6 years, I hadn’t been spoiled at all (I don't know how I managed to pull it off, lol). Needless to say, I was absolutely amazed at the plot twists in Season 2 and Season 3 and the reveals about [potential spoiler] and [potential spoiler] were completely mindblowing. I am absolutely looking forward to the final season of Attack on Titan, which will be airing in fall Season 2020. Hopefully Revo from Linked Horizon can deliver another awesome opening song again.
Thanks for reading, and see you next time! Animenz
