Probably my favorite GDM song, next to Alchemy and Brave Song. In Episode 4, this song replaces the usual opening and is shown in a manner that makes it appear as if Yui was auditioning for a role in the fictional band Girls Dead Monster. It's a powerful, emotionally dramatic song that hooked me instantly.
--== Chart Development ==--
I had to split the song's vocals and guitar tracks manually, as there is no karaoke version of the song. Charting the chorus was rather difficult and it's probably not 100% accurate.
--== About Development ==--
This is my 38th chart, and one done after a very long hiatus.
This is also the very first chart to have its video receive not only brand new branding for Season 5 (check out that snazzy logo animation!), but also to feature a DVD-like main menu, which will direct viewers to different parts of the video depending on what they want to see. Coco and I actually worked on this together--we bounced ideas off each other on how we wanted it to look and feel, then we put together the compositions and image assets, with the end goal of making it look as professional as humanly possible.
Needless to say, it turned out even better than we expected, and both of us have learned a lot about how to use Adobe After Effects through this experience; we've actually started working on a trailer using footage from Guitar Hero III's dorky little animated cutscenes.
Not only that, but we're working on actually modifying Guitar Hero III's game files themselves and attempting to replace everything with some authentic GHA branding. We'll see how that turns out. :)
--== Difficulty ==--
★★★★☆ - Challenging
A steady stream of notes at a rapid pace and some inconsistent note intervals will keep players on their toes.
