Yay! First actual post! Here’s a quick and dirty review of the Jormungand official soundtrack.
One thing that this show does well is create a threatening atmosphere. Basically, everyone in this show is a badass, and crossing them is quick way to die. However, in the lulls between gunfire, there are calm, sometimes even funny moments. This soundtrack captures this dissonance with a variety of pretty great songs.
The first feature is Time to Rock and Roll. Cool and quick, with a subtle bass beat, this song fits the anticipation before a mission begins. Perfect for the scenes before the action.
Next, we have Cul-De-Sac. What is a cul-de-sac? It’s the end of the line, and this symbolizes the points when this song plays, when our heroes reach a foe that has put them at their wits end. A song that plays with the tension of the scene, it does it’s job well.
Here’s track #10, Cogito ergo sum, which is Latin for “I think, therefore I am”. This song matches the emotions of the Hekmatyar family very well. A chilly undertone and a somber overtone, with a violin that pulls you through, this is a lovely song that never fails to get you down.
Next, Meu mundo amor. I’m not even going to be bother talking about this one. Just listen:
Finally, the song that characterizes this show, Time to Attack. When you think of Jormungand, you either think of the opening, or this.
I hope you liked the review, and if you liked these, I recommend you check out the rest of the OST.
