I love them for their works on Kara no Kyoukai and Madoka. Since Kajiura is their boss, no wonder they're always awesome! XDD
Hey, I'm just wondering that why there is no thread for this amazing group
Even though I watched Kara no Kyoukai before Madoka but this is the first song that got me into Kalafina :
Yo, fellow fans! That fact just struck me when you posted their video just now, so here I am!
I couldn't remember which song got me to love Kalafina. I think back then I had just discovered Kajiura-sensei through Tsubasa Chronicle the anime, fell super in love with her, and thus checking out all her works, including Kalafina and FictionJunction. Lacrimosa is probably the first song of Kalafina I tried. It was so-so, then listened to the awesome Gloria, and as I checked more songs I loved them as well. XD
One of their hidden gems:
heavenly blue is the ending theme song for Aldnoah.Zero. Even before their name came up in the credits, I knew it was their song right away! (And I've only listened to a small portion of their discography.)
I like how they have a distinct sound that they own and how the vocalists harmonize with each other. They're singing in unison but each singer has a distinct voice so you can tell who's who.
