    Rise of a Ryuu - Extended Mix
Welcome to the saga of Ikigai. Be warned - this saga is not for the faint of heart, as it was moulded in the fires of tragedy, sorrow, and wrought by the hammer of devastation.

The music however, is just a part of the greater presentation. Accompanying this new track, will be an Original Visual Story! Complete with Fresh Original artwork that will be uploaded exclusively on Webtoons [].
The music and the story of Ikigai integrate seamlessly on stage, truly complimenting and breathing life into each other, and creating something that far supersedes a traditional electronic music set.
