Been loving this tasty mix for a while now. Love the use of the percussion and fx to highlight the mix. The ending will get you everytime.

Splendid work Dan.

Very epic. Normally I'd turn down somthing with this much FX, but it's so wonderfully done, I can't say no. The piano in the latter section is a nice contrast, but the ending made me jump.

Basically, the game in music form.

This is amazing stuff from Danny B. You're either going to love this or hate it. But either way you can't argue against how well it's produced. This is probably the first piece of music I've listened to that could be classified under the "Horror" genre. Sharp and clear drum work in this that ensures that the softest tap is just as clear as the incredibly loud BANG that follows it.

The original theme is arranged well in this piece too. The original was melodic and slow, with a definate pace to each long drawn out string-note to give it a quiet and eerie dark feel. However in this remix the notes are sharp and have their own timing to give them a completely different sound. The actual progression is the same for most sections, but the way it's arranged is unique enough that one would be excused for mistaking it as a totally original composition.

The piano in this piece is well done too, playing the key notes in the background that made e1m5 memorable. When listening to this, it gave off that alien-vibe that the original did and sent a chill down my spine.

The piece eventually leads into a quieter and much more atmospheric section, with the bass still jabbing away as it fades out. The piano then comes in and plays what I find very reminiscent of Rob D's Clubbed to Death song (which is similar to E1M5 anyway.) The strings come in as a backing, and it's a very fitting transition.

I won't spoil the end, but don't stop the piece too soon, or you'll miss out.

Great work Danny B. A very fitting homage to the doom soundtrack and a perfect opener for The Dark Side of Phobos Album Release.

Hey that's one accurate nick you've got there.

The intro strings had me worried, but when the low accompianement came in on the right, I was sold. Excellent work from Danny B, and he has once again avoided my wrathful judgehate.

Download this shit live, you mothafuckas.

Definitely a sweet first post from the Doom project. Got my blood moving. Love the slow fade in, sets the mood for a very strong piece, emotionally.

I'd have to disagree there, Panic at Camp Crystal is definetly the first decent horror piece I've heard (IMHO of course . . .), still gets the adrenaline pumping no matter how many times I hear it. Danny B's is just as good though, and I'd love to see some more horror genre before Halloween rolls around again . . .[/url]

Can't disagree with that. ;)

This is pretty sweet. A good contribution to an awesome project as always from DB. I don't really have any complaints, as it perfectly fits the DOOM atmosphere.

I am starting to wish I hopped aboard :[
Awesome job.


Oh, and join my guild THE ROFFLE WAFFLES on WoW.
