Limited Edition 2xLP Pressing Announced For Kingdom Hearts Keyblade War
ROZEN and REVEN, who blew us away with their NieR: Glory to Mankind album, returned earlier this year for their second studio album as a duo. The album, titled The Keyblade War, tackled the Kingdom Hearts saga, which is known for its classic dichotomies and excellent music. It is also these elements that gave ROZEN and REVEN plenty to work with, which they did in style with multi-genre, large-scale arrangements.
The Keyblade War features sixteen grandiose arrangements and in all honesty, these tracks are not just a must for fans of Kingdom Hearts, but anyone who enjoys good music with great production values. In addition to being co-produced and co-arranged by ROZEN and REVEN, the album also features live performances by the Sofia Session Orchestra & Choir. The ETHEReal String Orchestra, Ro Rowan, Kristin Naigus, and other returning collaborators are also featured.
The Keyblade War was initially released digitally and on CD, but Materia Collective has now announced that a limited edition 2xLP pressing will also be available soon. The mockups of the vinyl edition can be seen below and perfectly encapsulates the light vs. dark elements of Kingdom Hearts in its design. It’s without a doubt one of the nicest looking vinyl releases that we’ve seen in a while and if you are a fan of Kingdom Hearts it’s pretty essential. We suggest heading over to Bandcamp right away to pre-order your copy before it ships in November 2020.
The digital release of The Keyblade War is also still available on Bandcamp, Spotify, Deezer, and many other stores, so be sure to give it a listen if you have missed out. Don’t forget to give Materia Collective a follow on Twitter too as they are responsible for some of our favorite video game albums this year and are showing no signs of slowing down.
