The Keyblade War

Following the success of NieR: Glory to Mankind, ROZEN and REVEN are back for their second studio album as a duo, this time tackling the KINGDOM HEARTS saga.

KINGDOM HEARTS is full of classic dichotomies (good vs. evil, light vs. dark), unexplained lore, time travel, interconnected characters, and above all excellent music. All of which makes it the perfect ground to explore with multi-genre, large-scale arrangements. The Keyblade War weaves along the boundary between light and darkness using themes from across the series, from the heart-pounding “Destati” to the melancholy vocals of “Sanctuary ~After the Battle~.”

All music arranged and produced by ROZEN and REVEN. Featuring performances by the Sofia Session Orchestra & Choir, along with returning collaborators ETHEReal String Orchestra, Ro Rowan, Kristin Naigus, and more.
