An Extreme Metal Cover Album of Theme Songs From Studio Ghibli Movies

this exists

It’s safe to say that there are a lot of geeks out there who love them some metal, judging by all the albums guest starring Christopher Lee, about Moby Dick, or about The Lord of the Rings (here’s a song about the theft of the Silmarils). My only problem with metal is that I have an arbitrary picky-ness about them: no screaming vocalists.

I like to sing along. I’m a soprano. I can’t scream like that.

But I might have to make an exception for Imaginary Flying Machines (that’s a link to iTunes, but it’s also available on Amazon in the US and UK), an “extreme metal” cover album of the themes from twelve different Studio Ghibli movies including My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away.
