Huh, and here I thought the use of what I felt sounded like old traditional Japanese singing, used throughout Japan's history both in theaters of fiction and folklore, as well as by Buddhist monks during their chants, was a pretty freakin swell idea to use in a theme depicting a character that's more than loosely based off of Japanese folklore of old Japanese gods. It's honestly one of the parts I like the most from the track, with the way it's implemented.
Ishiwatari didn't make SoD II, though, YUHKI did. Remember how the original Sword of Doom had a more whisper-y, apocalyptic-sounding choir singing the vocals? YUHKI decided to arrange the track to have a single vocalist sing those same vocals at the top of her lungs in a pretty good decision to signify the difference between CS Mu and CP Mu.
That aside, I'm noticing how most of the new tracks in CF's console version have that traditional Japanese-esque flare to them (aside from the tracks involving Es). I like it! Also, anyone else getting Muramasa-vibes from God of War?
