BadAss: Boss Themes, Volume 1 - History
The Boss Themes Project Volume 1
BadAss Volume 1 is now locked in! We're this much closer to unleashing hell on an unassuming populace! Can you feel it?! Can you hear it?! Thats the sound of Ass kickery of a magnitude previously unheard of! We're gonna change the OCR remix project game!
So, yeah, Ass Kickery!
PURPOSEThe reason for this project is to make an album that celebrates the awesomeness, as well as kick-assery, of the Villains of the games we love. Why, you might ask. Simple, I'd respond, ”Cause they're badassed, that‘s why.” Boss & Mini boss themes, Mini Boss Battle themes, & Villain character themes are the order of the day. Other tracks from the respective game can also be added to add some flavor, as long as the meat & potatoes are the Bosses theme.
GENREAlthough I'd like to allow a wide range of styles for this project, I'd like to keep it in the dark, aggressive territory. A spiritual sequel to Dark Side of Phobos, in a sense. I'd like anything from ominous, creepy ambient trip hop (like Akira Yamaoka), to aggressive rock, to bombastic pounding orchestral, to fight electronica (kinda like TCM or Prodigy), & genre mashes filled with awesomeness. Basically music that sets the stage for ass-kickery (hardcore style).
TRACKS SELECTIONSo, track selection is open. You can choose any boss theme, from any game, even if it's not listed. To reiterate, if you want to do a theme that's not listed, let me know, & based on how good your wip is, I'll add it. No one is a sure thing until I or a another coordinator (at a future date) tells you, which means even if you get a track up, if someone comes along that's a bit better, then, we have a old west duel. Best "shooter", or in this case track, wins. Best in this case not necessarily the most pro sounding, but the most creative & evocative of the project. Also, access to the Boss Themes sub forum at http://www.kngi.org/phpbb3/index.php(it's a new urly). You know you wants it!

This project is gonna kick-ass. Just for the record
I love the idea of a boss theme project, but I don't like the way you're approaching it.
90% of all video games have a boss of some kind or another. It's pretty much a staple of all games in popular genres today. To me, this seems like a great opportunity to remix boss themes from games which haven't seen daylight here at OCR, and to focus on different themes rather than boss characters, especially those from very popular games which have likely been remixed several times already. If I were you, I'd expand the project to something ten times this size and start pulling in great boss themes from all over the place.
requires some more...
Earthbound - Pokey Means Business
Live-A-Live - Pure Odio
Rudra no Hihou - Battle of the Last Enemy ~ Final Conflict
Golden Axe - Death Adder
TMNT (NES) - Mini-Boss music
Double Dragon 2 - Boss music
Streets of Rage 2 - Max Man
Bahamut Lagoon - The Last Battle
Contra 3 - Boss Theme
but yeah, aside from my own selfish desires this is what I like to see. not just sticking to one single game and doing the WHOLE soundtrack, but rather taking what's good from several games and focusing on that.
NEWSFLASH :: typically a whole soundtrack is not worthy enough of getting remixed. there ARE exceptions though... like The Magic of Scheherazade. lolololz
No Fighting of the Spirit?
I think some people missed the part where I said that I'd add more bosses as the project went, & artists wanted to do them. I really want SoR2's boss themes in there as well, someone just has to say they want it, & show me a wip.
i just really put the bosses off the top of my head on the list, I really hope this gets bigger & gets more obscure boss themes.
