Kurikinton Fox, I Like

This morning I woke up in a really bad mood. And I did scream, rant in my room and throw away some stuff that we're all a clutter because someone made my morning bad. To lessen my destructive forces from lashing out all over the house, I took a broom and a dustpan and swept my entire floor which hasn't been cleaned for ages. But even with that cleaning, I was still angry.

When I am angry, one thing that'd make me calm down is music. Not the smooth sailing ones, the hiphop-ish or even the all-cussing ones, just loud music. So what I did was click on the the playlist I have stored in my computer of Guitar Hero 3 songs like Through the Fire and Flames, Paint It Black, Prayer of the Refugee,Radio song, Black Sunshine, etc.

While listening to the songs I normally play every time I need to be distracted, I remembered how I loved listening to Kurikinton Fox's God Knows. So if you're a fan of Haruhi Suzumiya's God Knows, you should definitely listen to this.

He's an awesome guitar player, and if you like listening to guitar covers, you'll definitely be a fan of this guy. He usually plays game background & anime music. If it's fast and from a game console or from an anime, expect him to have played it.

Even his album Foxy Code, sounded more like BGMs from games like Megaman. I bet his playing was highly influenced by such.

With all his skills, you'd think he'd show his face to the world. But what's funny and more intriguing about this guy is he prefers keeping himself behind a fox mask.

Here's the most famous description you'd usually read about him:

Kurikinton Fox is a Japanese guitar player known for always performing in a mask, this mask is handmade and one of a kind, but they're easy to make. Often his performances are composed of multiple guitars, all of which are played by himself in a time-shifted multi-track recording. (I omitted the part regarding the website.)

In closing, I'd like to share this link for those die hard anime/ guitar player fans who love to listen to Kurikinton Fox's playing.
