FabvL Releases Demon Slayer Inspired Track Titled “Heart Ablaze”

heart ablaze fabvl

I’ve been anticipating FabvL’s latest track “Heart Ablaze” ever since he announced that his next song would be another based on the legendary anime “Demon Slayer.” Hot (quite literally) off the heels of Demon Slayer – Kimetsu No Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train, FabvL finally brings us a brand new song from the perspective of the movie’s main protagonist, Rengoku.

Heart Ablaze Video

 

Let’s talk about the insane visuals of the lyric video for FabvL’s track, Heart Ablaze. The visuals were created and edited be “Jeup_” and they are on an entirely new level. This video is one of the most impressive music videos that I’ve seen come from FabvL, and I have to say that I am incredibly impressed by what Jeup_ has created. The color grading is top notch, and the mix of grayscale and the bright red and orange flames blended throughout just brings an entirely new tone to the scenes taken from the Demon Slayer movie. There’s so much going on throughout this video, and almost feels like a portfolio showing off an entire catalog of editing techniques. FabvL’s Heart Ablaze video hit over 40,000 views on the very first day that it was uploaded on YouTube, and that’s not even counting all of the Apple Music and Spotify streams.

How Does it Sound?

This is definitely a really powerful track from FabvL regardless of whether or not you’ve seen the Demon Slayer movie, however, the emotion and message in this song is amplified exponentially if you have seen Demon Slayer – Kimetsu No Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train, because you’ll know that Rengoku’s message to Tanjiro throughout was to set his heart ablaze and keep moving forward with the passion of a thousand burning suns. (Spoilers incoming for Demon Slayer – Kimetsu No Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train) Unfortunately, at the end of the movie, Rengoku ends up sacrificing himself to save Tanjiro and Inosuke (FabvL also has a killer track inspired by him that you can find here!), but never changes his attitude and continues to instill his message as he draws his last breath. The chorus of Heart Ablaze is phenomenal as always, and really drives Rengoku’s message to Tanjiro, by essentially saying that legends never die, so set your heart ablaze and remember me when you’re in need, and that message shines in the first verse as well, especially with the line “You can think of me whenever that you fall.” After a pre-chorus and then chorus #1, we come to verse 2 which switches things up drastically and goes way harder than anyone was prepared for.

This is definitely one of my favorite FabvL tracks of all time, even though it may not be the heaviest of his tracks like “Feel Like Goku” or “Demon to a Ghxst,” it’s still carries some of the heaviest emotional weight across a vast discography, especially coming just a few short weeks after Demon Slayer – Kimetsu No Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train released. FabvL never disappoints and I, for one, can’t wait to see what he’s got in store for us next.
