OCR01345 - Ninja Gaiden 2 'Ninjascape'

27 posts in this topic

Can I do the first comment dance? :P

Yeah, I remember this from the November/December Free Month within the DoD - we can do with more mixes from there to come here (I can recall Ryan8bit's "Grief of Aktemto" also coming from there). Arrangement is great, and the overall tone has managed to show much of the broad tones as shown from Ashane as of late. Definitely broad stuff.

One thing that I still feel curious over is towards the drum expression - didn't quite feel as dynamic as expected, but this is still pretty well thought out.

Anyhow, if you're reading this Ashane, welcome to the OCR bandwagon. :D

Holy crap...DoD is about to get huge, getting an official link from OCR.

This song is excellent, Ashane-y awesomeness. Everyone, be sure to check out his other DoD entries, as well as the entries from his brother, housethegrate.

whew...I got goosebumps listening to that song. Brings back great memories of an awesome game series. This song really needed be done with heavy guitar and you did a great job of it. The way that you made sure that the main melody stands out in the song is great. Keep up the great work...more ninja gaiden stuff would be great.

Sweet. The guitar work takes it and really brings to life what I think we all had playing in our heads while listening to the NES soundtrack. That intro is awesome. Great work.

This song rocks my ass off .. It's a well known fact that many NES games tunes translates into heavy-metal nicely, and this one is no exception 8)

You won't ever tire of the Ninja Gaiden music ,and the games themselves were equally good IMO.

I want more rocking tracks here on ocremix !

What amazing stuff :o

This ReMix is quite amazing. I listen the excellent guitar here, it is very realistic and solid. Creative and atmospheric ideas. The beats are great and very elaborated too. Wow, he plays very well the guitar and the bass.

Excellent ReMix, Ashane! Welcome aboard!

Well, this remix definately rocks the Ninja in me for sure, although I'm not very flexible, so I can't do split kicks midair. I'd fall straight on my ass. LOL.

Excellent guitar work and good drum beats, although pesonally I would've brought up the drum levels just a little more, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying this mix throughly. This mix is well crafted, and well executed. Thumbs up for this one,

Ashane.

Keep up de good work!

Hopefully, Ashane has begun the revolution. It is time that DoD takes over OCR, as Darangen stated. I have been a HUGE fan of DoD ever since I first heard the January Metroid contest on VGF, feverishly downloading the new months when they come out. There are so many talented artists there, and its great to see them get onto OCR. Great mix, Ashane, keep up the good work, I look forward to your stuff in DoD.

Dang, I love this song so much. I think this song is highly worthy of all and any praise it gets. I just started playing Ninja Gaiden 2 again as well.

Intro was amazingly good, once things all kicked in, the track elements were a bit smashed together, but I didn't care as much since my face was being rocked off. I've heard more recent Ashane tracks and the production is improved while retaining the badassed guitar chops.

Expert playing and a great source selection. Solos were killer and completely shredded, and the only complain I has is that the ending didn't live up to the rest of the track's legacy.

Great stuff. \m/

aha, DoD has always been cool. I need to get more DoD stuff and throw it in a DoD Album.

Anyways, Awesome mix. I cannot get enough of stuff like this. Plus, I have a bunch of Ashane's other stuff. As expected, Great stuff man, keep on doing what your doing. ;P

I've probably listened to VoTL way too many times. Just sitting here enjoying great music from it. But this track, is a cool track I liked. Always reminded me of the times as a kid, playing me some FF7, and even some Chrono Cross :P
