Description

"封滅の蓮花蝶" from the album 星影メモリア featuring ℃iel on vocals.

MISTY RAIN is a Touhou doujin music circle who's arrangements are primarily done in a high tempo Hard-Rock style characterized by vintage guitars & equipment (Fender Telecaster USA '68, Fender Jazzmaster Custom shop NOS '63, etc.) often resulting in anachronistic guitar tones in addition to also being characterized by punchy sounding technical drums. Music by the circle is arranged and primarily preformed by sole member ながもん often with bass support from FND, おつぽん or タカ of Sun Flower Field & Iris Drop. Vocals are primarily contributed by female vocalist 青砥 雫 (aka ℃iel) who has been featured on nearly every album by the circle and has even been the only vocalist featured on some albums (Star Guide Literacy and 星天の夢見草), female vocalists レジ (niconico mylist (Requires account)) and tompi are also featured on many of the circle's releases.

Much of the circle's early discography (specifically their first 3 albums) has been re-recorded and featured on later releases, most notably the circle's 2nd and 3rd albums Scarlet Scenery & 風詠神楽 originally released in 2010 & 2011 respectively were completely redone in 2014 featuring re-recordings & remasters of tracks from the original albums in addition to new arrangements. A 3D Touhou animation titled "SONIC SPARK" by MUD SPIKE!/impulse (creator of touhou-dogfight) was produced featuring the opening track from the album 風詠神楽 (2011) and is now featured on MISTY RAIN's official website, it can be viewed here on Youtube.
