(Migrated from anime and manga upon advice)
The following piece of music is extracted from some video on the internet (which the twitter link cannot be included here due to the content is rather violent): https://soundcloud.com/user-873168135/unknown-anime-crisis-type-music-extracted-from-another-website
It sounds very familiar and seemed to be something from anime, and I am trying to at least identify the genre of such music. I am not sure if it is actually an original composition used by that author, or a fragment taken from some known music, as such is common in most short videos of length around 2 mins.
Detailed search attempts
- Known information
The source video where the music is found is posted in 19 April, thus if it is not an original production, then it has to exist somewhere. As it is extracted from a video, there is no known album cover.
The music has no lyrics and seemed to be orchestra based and consists of the following instruments: At least 3 three types of smooth bass, some kind of war drums, some kind of African drum, a violin superimposed with a female choir, some kind of gong like wind crashing instrument.
Similar music of that nature (especially that haunting female choir) tend to appear in cutscenes in anime when a towering or apocalyptic villain and evil is descending towards the world or the casts, or when some kind of emergency situation happens.
- Impressions and youtube, google searches
Keywords that I can think of that describe this genre (if a genre exists for it): Anime, Crisis, Invasion, Intense, Urgent, Dark, Fast-paced, Emergency, Towering, Disaster, Villain, Evil, Witch, Rush
General: Regardless of which keyword (or combinations thereof), the first 6 pages of youtube results is flooded by those long compilation videos mainly produced by the suit of accounts known as epicmusicworld, trailermusicworld, theprimecronus etc. which contains cliche epic cinematic music that does not match the impression of this music piece. All evil keywords (except for one combination below) return mostly dark fantasy genre music, which is too peaceful and slow to be similar to the music in question.
To prevent the post from getting too long, some of the more promising keywords include:
Anime villain: Fairy Tail 2014 OST 2 - 31 - Mard Geer Tartaros The Underworld King reproduced the forebrooding feeling of the music, but it is not it since it is too masculine and organ heavy. Fairy Tail - Goddess of the Slave Planet Kyouka reproduced the evil witch feeling of the choir, but is too slow paced and organ heavy instead of string heavy to be a match
(technically Rush, but that keyword will not return the music to be mentioned, thus this search is based on memory): The Limit from Steins:Gate reproduces the urgency and tension, but is not intense enough to capture the vibe of the music.
- Shazam, SoundHound, AudioTag, ACRCloud
They return no matches, regardless of how many times and which section of the music I choose to play to them. That suggests it is an ACG or video game music since these services tend to have a deficit of them in their databases.
