Enter the Darkness: Enter the Darkness is a song with many components, which I think makes it a song that fills you with strength especially for fighting the last boss. I contributed some of the songs from Birth by Sleep. My involvement began with a single phone call from Kawamori of the sound staff, saying “can you help?”. My suprised reaction of “What, not me??” was met with a no, “we’re going with you, Ishimoto”. We began sort of like, “okay, but I want to choose which tracks I do”. In the beginning I was quite anxious, but with the way it turned out, I am now filled with gladness that we did it that way. It’s always great to have a chance to try new things, and I’ve learned that it’s important to take that first step without complaint.
More importantly, it even made it safely through this poll onto the CD, chosen by the fans, and that makes me happier than anything.
