ALBUMS

ROZEN + REVEN
______________________________
NieR: Become as Gods takes ROZEN+REVEN back to NieR: Automata. Much like the fast-adapting machines in the game, the two artists have leveled up their production since the days of their first foray with NieR: Glory to Mankind. Within these eleven new covers, you’ll hear the duo’s hybrid orchestral-pop sound that blends heavy-hitting strings and brass, stark choir, textures of winds and synths, electric guitar, and a plethora of vocals from REVEN. The live orchestra sections were recorded by Sofia Session Orchestra and Choir in Sofia, Bulgaria, including a traditional Bulgarian Choir on several tracks.

“I would be remiss if I failed to mention just how critical REVEN is in all of this. Previously, I’d only recognized her for her vocal work. And, to be sure, she is an incredible vocalist. Her voice stands out so well on this album too. From “Pascal” and “Memories of Dust” to “City Ruins (Shade),” she has become a master of Chaos language in her own right. But she is also a top-tier arranger. And while the credits for this album do not cite which tracks are fully ROZEN or fully REVEN—presumably because they each had a hand in every song—her ability to bring a piece of already solid original composition to new heights is apparent throughout.”rpgfan.com
ROZEN featuring REVEN
______________________________
After debuting “Fódlan Winds” as a single last year, ROZEN tackles his top 8 additional tracks from the game’s most climactic and emotional moments, blending orchestral flourishes with synths and electronic percussion, choir, and that eerie Sothis-inspired chanting woven throughout.
All music arranged and produced by ROZEN. Featuring performances by REVEN, the Sofia Session Orchestra & Choir, ETHEReal String Orchestra, and more.
ROZEN + REVEN
______________________________

Kingdom Hearts is full of classic dichotomies (good vs. evil, light vs. dark), unexplained lore, time travel, interconnected characters, and above all excellent music. All of which makes it the perfect ground to explore with multi-genre, large-scale arrangements. The Keyblade War weaves along the boundary between light and darkness using themes from across the series, from the heart-pounding “Destati” to the melancholy vocals of “Sanctuary ~After the Battle~.”

All music arranged and produced by Rozen and Reven. Featuring performances by the Sofia Session Orchestra & Choir, along with returning collaborators ETHEReal String Orchestra, Ro Rowan, Kristin Naigus, and more.

“[T]his album weaves together many of the series’ motifs into tracks where they were note originally found, but Rozen and Reven also go farther by developing their own distinct sound, varying instrumentation and even working in new original melodies. The soundscape for some of the tracks is thus farther removed from the Yoko Shimomura’s originals, though the tone and atmosphere is still very much in keeping with the games. The result is a solid arrangement album that brings a fresh palette to familiar melodies, while also harnessing the narrative potential of the originals.” – vgmonline.net
“REVEN’s vocals across the album are fantastic, though they are a clear departure from Hikaru Utada. I think this is good and right: attempting to imitate the original artist would necessarily result in an inferior product. REVEN’s vocals are different, distinct, and for the most part, work very well. I was particularly impressed by her ability to switch between English and Japanese in “Sanctuary.”” – rpgfan.com

Hybrid Orchestral Pop arrangements of NieR:Automata™.
Welcome to YoRHa. Your mission is to traverse the world of machines and androids through the musical machinations of Rozen and Reven. The duo have teamed up for a full album collaboration of songs from NieR: Automata, with their fingers hovering dangerously close to the black box of your emotions.
______________________________
NieR: Glory to Mankind is a solid arrangement album for an excellent soundtrack, staying true to the originals in overall sound while bringing out new aspects, so that much of the album sounds like it could be an extension of the original soundtrack….The instrumentation and sound quality of the album is generally quite good, and Reven in particular does an impressive job of emulating so many styles of singing, helped by excellent mixing.” – vgmonline.net
