IMERUAT’s Black Ocean features FFXIII talent

April 7th, 2012 by Tony Garsow

New from Masashi Hamauzu’s MONOMUSIK and Wayô Records, comes “Black Ocean” — the debut album of IMERUAT. The album features composers, arrangers, and performers for Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2.

Masashi Hamauzu is known for composing for Final Fantasy X, XIII, and XIII-2 as well as a handful of other recognizable Square Enix titles such as Unlimited SaGa. While his compositions feature a more impressionist flair than fellow Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu, Hamauzu has definitely made his mark on the Final Fantasy universe with songs like “Blinded by Light”.

Mina is a recognizable voice for anyone who has played Final Fantasy XIII or XIII-2. You can hear her voice undulating in tracks such as “Battle Results”, “Will to Fight”, and “Sulyya Springs”. Devoted to the recognition of Ainu culture in Japan, Mina gave the group its name “Imeruat” — which translates to “Lightning” in English.

Mitsuto Suzuki as another up and coming composer in the Final Fantasy series, most notably being featured in Final Fantasy XIII-2. Previously arranging music for Konami’s Zone of the Enders and Square Enix titles such as The 4 Heroes of Light. Previously to XIII-2, Suzuki composed, arranged, and even performed in a majority of music for 2011’s The 3rd Birthday for PSP.

Along with Ippiqui Takemoto, Toru Tabei, and Hijiri Kawano, IMERUAT recently performed songs from their new album “Black Ocean” at the Fantasy Rock Fes (a music festival organized by Nobuo Uematsu) last month. Below you can see the group introduce themselves and perform songs composed by Hamauzu in dress rehearsal.

There are even a few songs from Final Fantasy XIII in the video below!
