Chester Bennington, famous as the lead vocalist of Linkin Park, was found dead in his home on the morning of July 20th, 2017.  His suicide came only a few months after Chris Cornell, who Bennington was close friends with, also committed suicide.  Had Cornell survived, July 20th would have been his 53rd birthday.  On the […]

Evangelion Chiptune Music by Studio Megaane

Monday, July 11th, 2016

After spending some time with Andrew’s Evangelion Chiptune album the other day, I did some poking around on YouTube for some other substantial efforts to recreate Evangelion’s iconic themes with lo-fidelity sound chips.  In particular, I came across Studio Megaane, which has done an impressive volume of chiptune renditions, with a strong preferance for mecha anime.  So it […]

A Human Work, a free Evangelion concept album

Friday, February 14th, 2014

I really enjoy seeing fan-produced concept and tribute music dedicated to Evangelion.  It’s interesting to see how people take a (predominantly) visual medium like animation and break it apart and reinterpret it through an aural medium like music.  In this case, we have an ambient concept album called “A Human Work” by Kyle Edwards.  Through […]

AMV Spotlight: ErMac Studios

Monday, December 16th, 2013

I’ve been spending some of my time lately going through and organizing my Eva files, and while I was looking through my archive of AMVs, one editor stood out that I felt like highlighting.  Justin Emerson, who went by ErMaC, has been out of the AMV circle for close to a decade.  When he retired, […]

Asuka, by Free Parking!

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

The more digging I do, the more Evangelion-inspired music I discover.  This time around, it’s an album called “Asuka” by Free Parking!, an alternative rock band from Pennsylvania.  They describe their influences as “Weezer, Thrice, Radiohead (just Brendan), Blur, The Fratellis, Say Anything, Vampire Weekend” and more.  I can definitely hear some influence from Weezer […]

Seventeen More Times, an Evangelion-inspired concept album

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

It seems like more and more cool music is coming out of members of Eva Geeks these days.  First Rachel Macwhirter, then Dr. Shoggoth, and now Michael Mancuso (aka Esselfortium), who has released an entire Evangelion-inspired concept album called Seventeen More Times.  This is the description of the album Essel provided: “Seventeen More Times is […]

“Neon Genesis” by DJ S3RL

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

If you like Happy Hardcore/Hardcore, or what some may refer to lovingly as “candy raver music”, you should check out DJ S3RL.  He’s a musical artist from Brisbane Australia, who not only makes his own tracks, but also samples from things in popular culture, including anime.  He has one such track called “Neon Genesis” which […]

The Musical Stylings of Dr. Shoggoth

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

I do this panel at conventions… sometimes it’s called “The Evangelion Omake Box”, and sometimes it’s called “Evangelion, WTF?”.  And essentially what it is is an emceed clip show featuring a bunch of ridiculous bullshit from Evangelion and it’s fandom.  Amidst the video files and audio clips, there’s this video, by an Eva Geeks user […]

With Me Now, an original Evangelion song by Rachel Macwhirter

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

Rachel Macwhirter, who I’ve posted about before, has released another original Evangelion song, entitled “With Me Now”.  Unlike “A Thousand Angels”, which was kind of general, this song focuses on the second child, Asuka.  It starts off kind of loose and builds up over the course of the song, adding in strings, percussion, and flute.  […]
