After years of visiting this site (seriously, about half of my music collection is from OCR), I finally registered just to express my appreciation for this song. Descent was one of the first PC games I ever played and I've always really loved the soundtrack, so it always baffled me how few people were covering or remixing it. Thanks, CFX, for not only covering one of my favorite games, but for making such a good piece. If the zombie Interplay ever make another Descent game, I hope this is what it sounds like.

Also, to all the OCR Descent fans, have you guys checked out D2X-XL? It's an extensive port of Descent 2 to OpenGL, to make it compatible with modern computers. The also added updated textures/models, and a bunch of gameplay and processing features. If you've still got copies of the original games, I suggest checking it out.

I have heard ofit, but I haven't looked into it. Most of the attempts to bring the old games up to modern times have been shitty DOS emulation or half-assed mods of other games.

This is a pretty nifty mix, I'm liking the overall sound quite a lot. It has a sort of industrial or old sound to it in the background, while the synth guitars add some flavor & direction to it. Its rolling feel is quite fitting and engrossing here. A solid mix all around!

Is it just me or is the volume on this a bit low?

Descent has always been a goldmine for remixes, and this is just further proof of that. The synth, the drums, the paino, the guitar; all of it meshes really well and creates a very enjoyable soundscape. The part around 3:00 is simply amazing.

Good stuff, man.
