Mat Mania

Mega Ran has covered many different topics in his music, from comic books to movies to education and a whole lot of video games.  His next album is about another of his favorite things, professional wrestling and by wrestling I mean WWE, formerly WWF.  The album is called Mat Mania, the same name as his podcast about wrestling.  It will be out on March 31st the same week of Wrestlemania in Dallas, Texas.

He teams up with producer Lynx Kinetic to do remixes on seven entrance themes and wrestlers.

Several tracks have already been released for streaming and downloading to enjoy.  The previews have been coming out each Monday (called Monday Night Ran), so the next one is tomorrow.

The album has tracks on legends like Macho Man Randy Savage and Jack The Snake Roberts to newer wrestlers like the New Day and Bray Wyatt.  Of the tracks released so far my two favorites are New Day Raps and Glass Broken.  New Day Raps is a fun party song about the most fun tag team in WWE today.  A remix by Matty Owens is also out.  Glass Broken is more of a song to pump you up for a fight about Stone Cold Steve Austin , that was released on 3/16 this year.

You can check out the new tracks on Rolling Stones, What Culture, or at Soundcloud.

Fans of wrestling and Mega Ran are both going to want to pick up this free album.

Mega Ran’s podcast of the same name has bi-weekly episodes dedicated to classic and current moments in pro wrestling.

About Sayuri:

Sankestu Shoujo Sayuri, (Suffocating Girl Sayuri), is a 19-year old Japanese singer-song writer.
She divides herself into the 2D and 3D world, making her a new type called a 2.5 dimensional artist, as each character plays in each dimension with their unique characteristics and expresses her music by going in and out of the world of subculture, pop, and moratorium.
She interprets “light” and “shadow” in the suffocating modern society – borrowing the words from Sayuri, it is the “suffocating world”. With this unique point of view, she sings while strumming the acoustic guitar.
Visual artists YKBX, who worked on many projects worldwide, visually creates the unique world of Sayuri and brings them to life.
Sayuri made her debut with “Mikazuki” as the ending song of Fuji TV Animation Noitamina series , “Ranpo Kitan: Game of Laplace” on August 26th, 2015.
The music video of “Mikazuki” had over 1.6 million views on YouTube and her street performance in front of the music shop, TSUTAYA in Shibuya, Tokyo, drew more than 500 excited fans.
Sayuri is absolutely a new type of artist who will give fans a performance they have never experienced before!
