If you haven't noticed, Bahamut, I'm trying to get sixto to work on his tracks... That's what being his IRC secretary is all about!

*prepares for awesome*

Mirby

I... can't... wait...

Boomer Kuwanger is my favorite track from X1! OBLIGATORY-DON'T-SCREW-THIS-UP!

Bahamut

It's quiet...too quiet.

So the past few days have been pretty quiet overall with regards to the project. Some nice tracks are still available like Chill Penguin, Crystal Snail, Wheel Gator, Wire Sponge, Doppler Stage 1, Magma Dragoon, Grizzly Slash, Izzy Glow, Burn Rooster, Bamboo Pandamonium, Rainy Turtloid, Commander Yammark, and more!

Although if people don't claim more tracks, I don't mind at this point :lol: . We got some good stuff so far for everyone!

hi, i've just been really terrible about this and consequently every other oc remix in the past. i mean, i haven't even listened to the dkc2 album yet either. if i finally get something going bahamut, i'll most likely send it to you when it's finished rather than a wip... i work in bursts and i work until i'm done, so even if it's last minute it'll get finished regardless. i've just been a real a-hole with the process which is probably why friends don't like working with me lol

TheKrow
04-13-2010, 04:09 AM
I've been working on a certain track from Command Mission, but I'm not claiming anything on it until I'm satisfied with the quality... expect a WIP soon. :smile:

Awesome! Hopefully you can do it more justice than me

Gario
04-13-2010, 04:35 PM
Woa hey, when did Crystal Snail open up?

If no one claims it before the end of this month I'll almost certainly take it up - wanted to do it before it was claimed earlier!

Can't promise anything, though - too many damn project songs, as it is :banghead:. Wait and see, I guess.

Mirby
04-13-2010, 07:36 PM
You think you have a lot of project songs? Look at sixto. He has six on this one alone! Not to mention the other projects he's on...

pu_freak
04-13-2010, 10:29 PM
Don't make this a contest guys... having too many project songs isn't good, trust me :P

Gario
04-14-2010, 08:02 AM
I trust you, Pu_Freak... besides, I'm not comparing myself to Sixto. Ever.

Yeah, I'll almost certainly work on a track for Crystal Snail, if it doesn't get taken in the next month or so.

Mirby
04-14-2010, 08:38 AM
I wasn't comparing, I was merely giving an example. In fact, when I brought it up to him back in March, this is what he said.

Mar 18 13:37:29 <Mirby> Opening Stage (X1), X-Hunter Stage 1 (X2), Blaze Heatnix, Gate's Laboratory (X6), Bomb Recovery (X7), Vs Lumine ~ The Second Form (X8 )
Mar 18 13:37:34 <Mirby> 6 tracks on that album alone
Mar 18 13:37:40 <Mirby> You gots work to do
Mar 18 13:38:41 <sixtofwar3> what was i thinking
Yeah, it was in IRC.

Bahamut
04-16-2010, 05:56 AM
So, anyone got something awesome on the way? It's ok to finish early :-) .

I did get wind of something quite awesome lately - perhaps a completed track coming my way?

Mirby
04-16-2010, 07:07 AM
I hope so... the more completed tracks, the sooner this is released, right?

Bahamut
04-16-2010, 07:12 PM
So I was almost right - almost finished WIP from Dr. Manhattan!

Mirby
04-21-2010, 10:44 PM
This is shaping up to be quite the awesome album, Wes! It truly is!

Bahamut

Here's a teaser for everyone!

It is beautiful! ^_^

And it doesn't spoil anything! It's two minutes long! There's 60 tracks or so; 2 minutes doesn't spoil anything!

So metal...the wait for the finished product just got even more unbearable...
But thanks for the teaser! :grin:

Really, nobody's taken Zero Stage 2 (Cyber Maze Core) from X5 yet?! That's like one of the best songs in the X games! That is my favorite techno song from any video game ever! I'd remix this one myslefs but the only instrument I would be able to do well is the drums

It's actually not the easiest source to work with unless you go for a more straightforward take. It might be incorporated with DJ Symbiotix's track though.

True, it might not be that easy to make a remix of a song that already sounds like a techno remix lol. I just think tht with the right remixer this song has the potential to blow people away.

General Gilliam
05-01-2010, 05:55 AM
Oh, I also noticed no Command Mission? That game had some pretty epic songs in it :(

Bahamut
05-01-2010, 03:13 PM
So I just got a final wav from ansgaros! Absolutely fantastic track by him, you'll all love it!

Now the rest of you need to get in final wavs :-) .

Oh, I also noticed no Command Mission? That game had some pretty epic songs in it :(

Actually, we do have one Command Mission song, I just haven't listed it. The Krow has one in the works, and I have a WIP by him. I'm not familiar with the Command Mission soundtrack unfortunately, although it is fair game. We also have more tracks than is listed even excepting that one!

Mirby
05-01-2010, 06:34 PM
Only 60 tracks are listed; there are more than that. So even though it looks like sixto's doing 10% of the tracks, he's actually doing less, because of the tracks that aren't listed.

General Gilliam
05-02-2010, 01:57 AM
Hmm, I've actually been making a Opening Stage - Zero mix for a bit now, but in order to finish it I need someone who could record a lead and rhythm guitar part for it. I kinda gave up on it a while ago because without a real guitar it sounds shitty.

Mirby
05-03-2010, 05:53 PM
Tell Sixto to work on his tracks! Don't make me break my IRC sabbatical!

No such animal. There are no sabbaticals from IRC.

Mirby
05-04-2010, 02:40 AM
Then what am I doing?

Bahamut
05-06-2010, 09:34 PM
So welcome XSTMusic on board with Chill Penguin! Can't wait to hear what he is going to cook up for this track, it should be rocking!

Bahamut
05-10-2010, 02:49 PM
For those who missed the preview, I uploaded it to my host - it's linked to on the first post now!

Edit: And another wav bites the dust! Kudos to The Dual Dragons for being on top of things! The rest of you need to get in gear!

Mirby
05-10-2010, 08:02 PM
I'll make Zero appear and blow himself up if you don't get these in, people!

I just really can't wait for this to be finished... :P

The Dual Dragons
05-14-2010, 12:16 PM
This project is on FIRE! Great job by the way Bahamut :)
The preview sounds kick ass!

MrFX
05-17-2010, 09:46 AM
I registered for this website just so I could comment on this. I've been waiting for a major project like this, and the preview sounds kick ass! That Blizzard Buffalo part has me the most hyped up for this!

These guys work crazy fast. We all suck.

Mirby
05-17-2010, 09:03 PM
Of course they do. they're Dragons; they've got some special Dragon abilities that allow them to do so. :P

Seriously though, the sooner the tracks are done, the sooner this comes out. I can't wait.

Now if only my comp would run X7...

LuketheXjesse
05-17-2010, 09:04 PM
X7 is a horrible horrible horrible game and you're not missing out.

Mirby
05-17-2010, 09:20 PM
I rather enjoyed what I've played. It just runs really slow.

Bahamut
05-18-2010, 05:25 AM
X7...is mediocre - it wasn't nearly the worst game I've played, but it definitely doesn't stand up to the other X games.

Mirby
05-18-2010, 05:29 AM
No, not by a long shot. But I still have enjoyed what I've played. Not nearly as much as the other X games, Command Mission included, but still.

KyleJCrb
05-18-2010, 05:38 AM
X7 is the worst in the series. X8 isn't bad, however. Play that instead.

Mirby
05-18-2010, 06:05 AM
Already have, already beaten it. Great game. Until recently, X7 was the only one I hadn't played.

Cerrax
05-18-2010, 03:54 PM
Just had to pop in and say I am super excited for this project! I really wish I could have had some inspiration to join you guys but I trust it will RAWK all the better!

05-18-2010, 04:49 PM

Why not? It's always fun to do so.

Oh man I had a great time with X8.

KyleJCrb

Oh man I had a great time with X8.

I think my favorite part is the navigators being playable, which was a nice change of pace from the usual sausagefest that is the MMX universe.

Brandon Strader
05-21-2010, 08:00 AM
I've never played any of the X series but I'm still looking forward to this music. Good luck, everyone. :-D

That was awesome, even though it was just playing female versions of X, Axl, and Zero. And the music was awesome too; glad to see such talented mixers taking on a few tracks from X8! ^_^

Mirby
05-28-2010, 07:48 AM
I've never played any of the X series but I'm still looking forward to this music. Good luck, everyone. :-D

Then you have no right posting in this thread. RAWWWRRR!!!!

Seriously though, check the games out. They all have rockin' soundtracks!

Brandon Strader
05-28-2010, 07:50 AM
:?:

Play x!
MegaMan X? I'll look for it and give it a shot.

I kind of avoided MegaMan because I got the first game, which came out in 1987, when I was just a tiny lad. I was good at it then. I grew up and tried to play it, and I was horrible at it - couldn't beat a single level. Then I always nodded the MegaMan series off as "that series which I'm not good enough to play". With modern save-state technology, I could probably do it, but it would not be the least bit legit.

Bahamut
05-28-2010, 07:50 AM
Eh, nothing wrong if he hasn't played them - but go check the games out, they're still fun to play today!

Mirby
05-28-2010, 08:37 AM
I can beat them without savestates. I have, actually.

Bahamut
05-30-2010, 07:43 AM
Its been quiet...and a little more than 1 month until the next deadline! I hope some more developed WIPs/final wavs come in soon :-) .

Demonstray
05-30-2010, 11:58 AM
I can beat them without savestates. I have, actually.
It's a sad, sad age when it's an accomplishment to beat a video game without savestates. :-(

Gario
05-31-2010, 12:03 AM
Well said, Demonstray. Well said.

Save states = the devil.

And here's hoping I'll get some significant progress out for the next deadline during a move/re-evaluation of all my stuff.

Mirby
05-31-2010, 12:21 AM
I was only saying I've beaten them legit whereas Oink there said he couldn't beat them without savestates.

Semi-challenging, but fun.

Bahamut
06-11-2010, 05:53 AM
So things have been quiet lately - just a timely reminder, there's 29 days until the second deadline!

Mirby
06-11-2010, 06:09 AM
Mayhaps this is the calm before the storm?

Gario
06-11-2010, 03:20 PM
SSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhh...

I'd like to have some peace before the inevitable panic, thank you very much :shock:.

Bahamut
06-12-2010, 12:01 AM
So Sixto dropped 5 of his tracks :puppyeyes: - I sort of figured this would happen, he just took on too much for how he's approaching music currently.

Mirby
06-12-2010, 02:07 AM
Well when he said he had 23 project tracks when I interviewed him oh so long ago, I was optimistic... but this was bound to happen. :(

Hopefully someone can pick them off the floor and still do something excellent with them. :D

Bahamut
06-15-2010, 09:26 PM
Got an updated WIP from Skummel! After some talking it looks like his piece will be expanded, so look out for some good stuff :-)

Mirby
06-16-2010, 05:44 AM
But the good stuff I was looking for was Sixto's 6 tracks...

heh actually this will all be good; can't wait! Especially for Morse's massive medley!

prophetik music
06-17-2010, 03:59 PM
so, what was left to do on my track? i seem to remember you saying that you want a live guitarist. is there any way i can get around that thought? i kind of wanted this to be shreddage only.

Bahamut
06-17-2010, 05:04 PM
Well I thought it could expand the track really with a mix of the synth & guitar lead.

Edit: Minor update, Jewbei switching his track to Gravity Beetle - looks like we got 3 people doing it ha!

Bahamut
06-29-2010, 06:28 AM
So a bit of an update here - I'm still in need of someone to do the website. If anyone knows anyone who is willing to do this and is on point, have them contact me!

More of an overarching thing - I'm currently preparing in anticipation of enlisting in the military as an officer in the US Air Force. In particular, this can possibly affect things with regards to release timing if everything is not essentially complete beforehand, so this makes it imperative that all the tracks are finished before Oct. 9th. If not, there is a real possibility that the release will be pushed back at least 4 months further, if not even more - this is due to the fact that officer training is a 12 week process of minimal contact with the outside world.

So lets go everyone, work it because we all want to see this release before the year's end!

Hey Bahamut, sorry I never got back to you on the status of the song I was kinda working on, but I decided to drop the project. On another note though, I am currently remixing Zero Stage 2 (Cyber Maze Core) from X5. Not sure if I'll have it done on deadline, so I guess this'll kinda be like if I finish it on time I'll submit it to you, if not, oh well.
Here' a link to the original http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQSDf-V0yDs

This is kinda hard to remix as it's already a techno song, but I'll try my hardest to get a good sounding mix out before the WIP due date.

Bahamut
07-03-2010, 03:38 AM
So it's looking like Jewbei might be the next one to give up the final wav! Remember guys, 1 week until the next deadline!

Demonstray
07-03-2010, 05:09 AM
So I'll have two things for you on this WiP date. One which you don't have from me, and the other's actually a surprise, you won't see it coming. But when it hits you, it'll hit you like a phone booth. Sound good? :)

Bahamut
07-03-2010, 06:13 AM
Me like surprises

Bahamut
07-04-2010, 12:26 AM
Got a final wav from Jewbei! 1 out of 3 Gravity Beetles done :-D .

Also we're ~10% done with the songs! Lets get that as close to 100% as soon as we can guys!

Demonstray
07-09-2010, 11:10 PM
Okay dammit, my internet connection keeps cutting out just in time to completely ruin my upload attempts for both songs. They'll be in tomorrow (at least one of them will; I might work more on the surprise before unleashing it), I swear; I got no time to fix my connection today.

Bahamut
07-10-2010, 12:28 AM
Heh, everyone seems to have problems getting the songs in for today. I haven't been in the sharpest state of mind the past few weeks, so I can understand if people happen to miss this date, but keep in mind the final deadline. Everyone has worked hard on the songs, lets see them come to fruition by then!

Demonstray
07-10-2010, 11:13 AM

General Gilliam
07-16-2010, 12:45 PM
Hey bahamut, sent you a message with a WIP preview. Also, what's with all the Gravity Beetles? o.O

Bahamut
07-16-2010, 05:02 PM
So welcome to Brandon Strader and General Gilliam to the project! I'm curious how Sting Chameleon & Zero Stage 2 will turn out under their hands, respectively.

Inferno232
07-17-2010, 05:39 AM
Wow. My first thought when I realized that the vocals were Mega and Gravity Beetle going against eachother was "Holy crap, Mega's fighting Zeromus!" I blame the track off of the FFIV Album.

Still, epic nonetheless. I would really have liked it more if I could've understood GB a bit more, though, and the end where he gives the sad speech was very hard for me to hear.

And this album looks great! I've been following the FFIX and SD3 albums, so I neglected checking this out sooner. Shame on me, that's unacceptable.

So just a word of note if anyone needs to contact me because by chance they have a final wav - I'll be gone for the most part for the next week or two possibly due to moving tomorrow, and I won't have internet immediately.

I'll definitely catch up if anything comes up once I have internet again, and it shouldn't be too long after I move, but you never know.

For those who are on the project & for just those generally curious - I am about to make a decision that will possibly affect the release of the album, although I'm going to do everything I can up to that point so that it isn't affected.

Right now I am looking seriously at enlisting in the Army or Marines, with the goal of entering boot camp before the year ends. In particular, there is a real chance that there is a conflict between the final wav dates and being sent off on the start of my military career. I will know in advance as I go through the process of enlistment, so I will keep people updated on that.

The earlier you can finish, the better because of this. If I happen to be gone, Dyne will handle the rest that needs to be done.

I really want to see this ready if possible music-wise before I leave for basic training. Let's make this happen!

The army?!? God damn.

Well, good luck either way, and I agree, even more incentive to GET THOSE TRACKS DONE.

Speaking of which, I can't believe no ones claimed Wheel Gator's Theme from X2. That's like one of the best themes in the game.

Very spiderman-ish sounding. Or was that batman? Either way, would be great if it was all synth. :wink: There's also Dr. Cains theme from X3:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csNnPhz3NxA&feature=related

which would be great in a melody of all the minor themes, it being the hook. If I sound kinda pushy, it's only because I've been looking forward to this album for a while now. Huge MMX fan, and the OST's have always been top notch.

I ended up choosing the Marines - I'm currently enlisted & working out pretty hard towards preparing for boot camp. The album will come out before I ship out though, so no worries on that front.

So another song for the project is a take on Esperanto from Mega Man Zero 4 by melody! This song is just about ready!

The status of songs listed is somewhat misleading, as many people have assured me that a lot of these songs are almost ready & I just haven't been given WIPs for them. Things are looking very promising for the project, and we will likely be almost finished with everything in October (there may be a few people late for some reasons - DarKsidE55 broke his finger for example, which affects his guitar playing, and I still would like to have his tracks on board for the album).

The artwork and the website are also underway as well.

All in all, we are looking at everything complete by December possibly.

The album will be 4 discs, with a 5th disc as a bonus disc with some goodies. Those on the project curious about a tentative track order can head on over to the project forums. I am still in the process of tweaking the order for what would be best - it is going to take some time though, as I don't have a near complete set of tracks to make final decisions.

Originally I was going to have it be a bonus track, but it fits really nicely in a particular spot on the album, so for the sake of flow I'm putting it in the regular listing.

Just a lurker on this site but:

Growing up in a rural area where the only dial-up provider still had "BBS" in their name, I found a revelation in the local church. That revelation was a copy of Mega Man X that my mom bought as a raffle prize there but was rejected for some churchy reasons. At the time all I saw in the game was an awesome robot shooting even more awesome robots. Something else seemed extraordinary in the game, but I was too young to realize it was the music. Like a violent laser choir, Mega Man X preached a gospel of rock to my heathen ears and shaped my musical tastes for years to come.

Need this need this need this.
Can't wait for this album! That Blizzard Buffalo synth and guitar in the preview is like a new revelation.

You have songs like Noble Creature of Snow, The Leidenfrost Effect, The 4th Coming, Sweeping the Storming Skies...and String Chamellotron. If you REALLY want to keep it, I'll begrudgingly take it with the name, but just know that it still is glaringly ridiculous.

"Bugging" only works in special situations. Leave the project organization to the project staff, Mirby. No offense, but regardless of how bad you want them to do it, that's the appropriate thing to do. :nicework:

Yeah, generally it's not a good idea to pester people too much - that's why I prefer to keep in loose contact to give people some space since most people are tackling many things in their lives as well as the music.

It helps also to keep things lighthearted somewhat as well.

With Sixto though, I already spoke to him a few days ago, so we're on the same page.

Heh I never heard that Duane & BrandO song before for some reason.

As for the tracks - some unexpected things happened to a few people, and there seemed to be an overwhelming feeling of pressure, so I decided to move back when I wanted all the final tracks. I've still been strongly encouraging final wavs whenever people had them almost ready since it helps give a more complete picture for the background stuff before release. It looks like we might be ready for a January release.

With that said, now Ergosonic and Level 99 & Hemophiliac are ready to give a wav soon, with Bonkers possibly close to having one ready as well.

To be fair to everyone though, I did mention about some stuff being an issue (uncontrollable circumstances, such as DarKsidE555 having his finger broken on his guitar playing hand) with several people though that ended up with me delaying when I want the final tracks in by, but everyone knows the expectation this time is that all the wavs need to be in asap.

MMX6 and MMX2 aren't getting enough love

Then again, X6 already has live instruments, so hey. Maybe a trend of applying chiptuneage to games like X6 and beyond that already have live instrumentation is necessary?

It would certainly be interesting. For example, having dem beeps and boops during MMX8's Lumine-Second Form play when the song slows down from its rock part to its more mellow stage. The instrument in the background is....a violin? I can't tell.

Hmm... I don't think you should post that here - on projects, it's best not to release your music to the public before the project goes live.

So good news abound! XSTmusic is rounding the final stretch on his excellent medley, including a strong Chill Penguin - this track is already pushing 10 minutes and will likely be even longer!

zyko just needs to get the production done for his tracks to be finished. Similarly with Bonkers for his Opening Stage Zero track.

Big updates for Vurez's other two tracks are incoming.

Gario & Skummel has also pumped out a solid WIP in the meantime.

Get excited people, the music is on the move and it's looking like this album will be unlike any other one on OCR! When you all get to hear the preview once we hit 30 final wavs (I might move that up to 32 or 33 :-P ), you will know what has those on board hyped up over.

It's quite tempting to put together a preview before the 33 wav mark...

So we're at 16 final wavs! Willrock decided that he wanted his GMRB entry in and polished it up enough that he felt that he was done with it, so he gave me a final wav for that.

XSTmusic also provided me with a quick wav of the Title screen music from MMX.

We are pushing quite close to the boundaries of 5 discs, with 4 discs of the regular album and the 5th one for bonus tracks. I'm kinda fearful as to what the listening party will be like when this releases, we might have more than 6 hours of music.

5 discs, holy crap. Which songs are bonus ones?

Gario
10-27-2010, 02:31 AM
I'm sure the tracks that are from the MMZ series are bonus.

Also, I'm not surprised at the size of this thing. I mean really - you make an album dedicated to the ENTIRE MMX SERIES, then allow for repeats. That's just the way it was going to roll out.

Bahamut
10-27-2010, 03:56 AM
I'll just say that we have 13 tracks and counting so far slated for the bonus disc.

Edit: Those who haven't noticed, go vote on the GMRB tracks! http://ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=31266

I'm very glad that it'll be such an extensive release; the plethora of tracks and arrangements will make me a happy camper. I recently picked up the X Hunters' album, and it just intensified my craving to hear what the OC ReMix community comes up with!

I was a bit disappointed that their album is just short covers, as it seems they got the tools to do more with the music.


Got a WIP from Devastus (courtesy of the GMRB competition going on), and he told me he has an even more updated version. For those who haven't heard it, go check out the GMRB Round 1 X bracket tracks! You'll also get to hear Willrock's too!

Also got a promised wav on the way for Friday, as well as XSTmusic being quite close to finishing.

2 months until the music should be ready for mastering. Get ready, it's going to be a long two months for everyone!

10-27-2010, 05:01 PM
Are those tracks (Devastus' and Will's) the ones they sent for the GMRB?

Now I should listen to the X series' OST, I don't know how the tracks sound, except Gravity Beetle and the whole X5 soundtrack.

(BTW, I hope people liked my unofficial trailer for the OCR MV2.2, haha)

Yeah, they're the GMRB tracks, although Devastus is updating his.

Right; their tracks are well-done for what they are, and I greatly appreciate the fact that a good, metal MMX cover band exists, but it's all very straightforward and over pretty quickly. So I'm really looking forward to hearing them expanded and reinterpreted OCR style, especially if Devastus and WillRock's GMRB tracks are any indication.

I don't mean to come off as a ginormous dick, buuuuut....well....it's not really the entire series.

I mean, some games have much more representation than other games.

Eh, what can I say. MMX1 is incredibly popular.

Bahamut
10-29-2010, 01:06 PM
It is disappointing in a lot of ways, as there are a lot of nice sources in the series not taken like Doppler Stage 1 (X3), Wheel Gator (X2), Wire Sponge (X2), Crystal Snail (X2), X-Hunter Stage 2 (X2)/Gate's Laboratory Stage (X6), Ruins'n Vains (X7), Bomb Recovery (X7), Inferno ~ Descending (X8 ), Booster Forest (X8 ), Volt Catfish (X3), Web Spider (X4), Grizzly Slash (X5), Blaze Heatnix (X6), and Sigma 2 (X6).

It's not like I can take a gun to someone's head and force them to do all desired tracks...or I guess I could and be labeled a psycho :lol:

Dafydd
10-29-2010, 01:44 PM
I'm pretty sure that when I looked at the list a while back all of those tracks (Wheel Gator (X2), Wire Sponge (X2), Crystal Snail (X2), X-Hunter Stage 2 (X2)) were claimed. Was I just dreaming?

Bahamut
10-29-2010, 01:50 PM
Crystal Snail was by Theophany & Gate's Laboratory Stage by Sixto - both dropped those tracks.

Shake
10-30-2010, 06:38 AM
Wire Sponge (X2)

Oh man, awesome song I forgot about

Although I guess I'm not that saddened about X7 and X8. I mean, the originals were already played using live instrumentals, whereas the SNES games and X4 and X5 didn't. Really, part of it for me is looking forward to old sound hardware brought to life.

But the Maverick Competition has me loving re-arrangements and songs done in different styles.

Not that I didn't before, but, you know, most songs here are from the NES and SNES era.

But, yeah, can't force people to do certain songs. You can pester them to get tracks done, though :)

Just added Gario's and prophetik's GMRB mixes to the count for the album - both did a nice job, which you can download in the zip linked to in this thread: http://ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=31266

There is polishing to be done, so we may not see a final wav immediately, but both are welcome to sub a wav to me whenever they're comfortable with their songs.

I know a triple post is in bad form, but Willrock has a bitching rendition of The Skiver & Infinity Mijinion - you'll all get to hear it when round 2 of the GMRB voting starts!

In other news, got a WIP for BONKERS' Dr. Light medley & for Skummel's Flame Stag - things are looking pretty good here, people are putting in good effort.

For a more general status of things - the end of December is a hard deadline. For those not done by then, their tracks will likely be cut unless they work to get the tracks in asap & are close to done. I want to see this ready for release by late January at worst.

The timing yes, but I knew the competition would come up - Shariq and I have talked about it while the GRMRB was running.

Last night we had a quite surprising chat amongst staff - currently there are 5 (!) albums in the queue to be released with more looming in the horizon like this one (I think 4+ albums). I'm hoping we can release in January, although I'm not sure how things are going to shake down. That's a lot of music on the way!

And better news is that I got in my first see at how the artwork is going down today. It looks bold & quite fitting.
