Seiken Densetsu 3 has some pretty heavy tracks to its soundtrack that work really well when used, such as this one.
I was trying to get across what I felt the imagery was when divorced from its gameplay-related context and I’m not sure if I was able to do so, but I feel that writing this was pretty easy so in a way this was kind of a success.
Hiroki Kikuta’s (菊田 裕樹) “Angel’s Fear” (“天使の怖れ”) is from Seiken Densetsu 3 Original Sound Version, the soundtrack for Seiken Densetsu 3. As a side note, it appears that “Fear of the Heavens” is also titled “Angel’s Fear”, which makes sense as this one seems to be a quieter, heavier take on “Fear of the Heavens”.
I hope you enjoy.
Lonely a piano calls out, looking for something. It is a vast and empty void, almost.
Something joins it soon. It seems to play slower and is almost mourning. However, in all of this a weakened sense of hope continues to search through the stretching darkness.
Soon the sounds halt, the piano seems to curl up and something lighter comes in. It has a bit more fragility, but it seems to respond and it looks for the source. It searches and tries to find that which is calling. However, before it does it stops and the piano returns.
A return of the other sound that met the piano and they keep on looking. They keep their hope and they keep on searching with a determination. There is sadness and there is loneliness, but there is not time to give into despair. If there was something that was heard then it can be found.
Once more the lighter sound returns and it seems to get closer. It seems to keep on going. It also refuses to give up, and so it continues its search, for it knows there is a chance of success.
Once more the piano returns, but before a conclusion is had it fades out and the song ends.
