Excellent. One of the best remixes on the site by one of the best remixers. The production quality and arrangement of this song is better than your previous MGS mix, however I should note I still prefer the emotional power of the previous mix, especially towards the end of the song.

Keep up the great work Reuben.

Very beautiful first off. I also love the fact that the mix continues to change throughout the song. It goes in many different directions and is done a way in which it works perfectly. Besides that, it's just plain awesome.

That was...epic, I think, would be a fitting word.

Definately going into rotation on my playlist.

I can just imagine the atmosphere a battle scene would have with that playing in the background.

Hmm... I must say this is comparably better than the original Legend of the Snake remix... the original had a bit of a blank spot at the beginning and felt a bit "empty" most of the time, but was still a good remix that I have on my playlist.

This remix, however, is excellent! All the elements of the song blend well together, there's nothing that's particularly hard on the ears, dynamics are well thought out and the melody is never over-dominated by anything while each instrument is still clearly audible. No real balance issues that I can hear at all.

Probably one of my favourite spots is at 1:44 where, after a gradual introduction, it goes into a much more epic and exciting part after the peaceful opening.

I've never heard the Metal Gear Solid soundtracks... so I can't really compare this to the source material, but that doesn't stop me from really liking this remix.

All in all... this remix is pieced together wonderfully and will be finding a long lived spot on my playlist with its ancestor.

10/10 .
The piano part was nice(nothing special though), but the best here is the orchestral part, which resembles to Terminator theme. Very nice.
And then, the drums?!! What the? (suprised)
Excellently writted drums, i liked them . This kicks ass.
Some taiko drumming, then orchestral again. Congratulations, this is excellent.
i will be honest, this kicks ass

GREAT production values. Epic, as someone said before, is quite the right word, and the scope of the arrangement was phenomenal. Loved the orchestral parts especially. Far from a liquid submission.

It has been sometime since I have downloaded an OCRemix. You sir have a great mix on your hands.

The beginning is wonderful in that it does not prepare you for what is to come. Correct me if I am wrong but I can sense a little influence from MGS3 which is blended perfectly in the piece. My favorite part is at the 3:48 mark. It reminds me of the 2004 TGS MGS movie where The Boss tells Snake that she has nothing left for him and that he must kill her. Immediately afterward you can feel the emotion of such a moment.

I salute you good sir. This is a wonderful piece that goes on my iPod.

This piece rocks my socks off, the arrangement is brilliant, and mad props to Reuben for bringing it into the daylight.

Pure orchestral awesomeness, I love it. :D

Ah, so this finally got posted.

After coming back to the song having last heard the WIP a few months ago, I've got to say; it still sounds great.

Cheers Reu :wink:

WOW :) I am thinking terminator 2 (one of the versions with violins, and well anyway the terminator main theme is really something that it reminds of too) :) Jurassic Park, and also a bit The Rock (oh well that isn´t that far fetched anyway), but also something I can dream too, and well I think it is a fucking great classical piece :) and it is something I can listen to alot :) thumps up :) it reminds of some of the best kLuTz has made too. very beautiful, and I am astounded by it :)

FUCK I have just listened to most of his composistions, and covers, we have just got another very fucking talented musician on board this community :) damn I don´t care if I swear but Reuben Kee and kLuTz aka. Gregory pak are some of the most talented piano players, and I would love to hear them both in Copenhagen, if they ever got the oppurtinity to play in Denmark , just listen to Legend Of The Snake and , the rest of their compositions, and then you will know they both are VERY talented artists, and damn good musisicians :) thumps up :)
