Crescendo to Chaos
A collection of themes from the most badass and memorable bosses in gaming history!
The basic idea of this project is to create one album to showcase some of the most well known bosses from video games. For bosses that have appeared in more than one game, the remixer has the opportunity to choose the game's theme he or she wants. If a boss has different themes throughout the series, there is no problem with an artist working them together into one piece.

WIP and art forums be here. <-ONLY KEPT FOR REFERENCE. NO POSTING!
Newer, better, shinier ones are here
Any genres of music can be used as long as they've got a deep, profoundness that express the players concerns, and the power and domination the boss exerts. Basically, dark and boss like will do. Preferably Orchestrated, Techno, and Rock, or a sick sounding combo. Avoid ambiance, if possible. Other genres are ok, too. Just check with the coordinators.
Other important notes
If two bosses have a special connection, with different themes (Ex: Bowser, and Big Boo; Mother Brain and Ridley), and one is not on the list, you can combine the two (or more), as long as the listed boss remains dominant. Ask about any of this if you are not sure.

If you are in the middle two, you're fine. Keep working at it and soon these tracks will be amazing. If you are in the bottom category, you need to do something about this quickly, or if I have reviewed an old crappy WIP, send a new one to me and Pi immediatley. I will try to update this post from time to time, and put that quality list on the first post. Good luck to everyone and keep working.
