Leah is doing a SoM mix for Crescendo to Chaos Boss Battle Project. I don't know which theme from the game she is covering though. The CtC thread is over in the WIP forums. Maybe she'll cover the Dark Litch theme?
Odds are they'd go for Mana Beast's theme ("Meridian Dance") because it "seems more melodic".
But either way, the Dark Lich is hard to cover, because it depends more on percussion than actual use of timbres. It's interesting how they pulled it off on the SNES O.O
Either way, Forfallen (an aggressive metal side-project envisioned by Jason Vincion) produced "In the Wake of Thanatos" (http://www.jasonvincion.com/forfallen/Forfallen%20-%20In%20the%20Wake%20of%20Thanatos%20[Secret%20of%20Mana].mp3) for the November 2005 Mana Dwelling of Duels event. And I praise him so much for approaching it the way that he did :D

I'll have to check that out, and yeah I def agree with you that Meridian Dance is much more remixable and catchy theme. I think Prometheus is remixing Meridian Dance for the SD3 project.(SoM2)
The Thanatos theme will take some clever sound design, and also very good production values in the composition to keep the listeners attention. But like all SoM music it is simple yet highly emotive.

Oh I see, thanks for the feed back guys, I'll have to check it out, the mana beast theme is also great :D

I like this request and I'm starting to write something. I'm planning on doing a full orchestral version of the three tracks:
The Curse (Thanatos Revealed), The Oracle (Battle with Thanatos), A Conclusion (Thanatos Defeated)
