Subliminal Labs, who you may remember for their excellent Castlevania submission, give us this badass remix of the Ultima IV theme . . it's very deceptive, because it starts out pretty normal, with a nice traditional arrangement, then goes COMPLETELY INSANE, with loops and guitars and ambient effects and . . .well . . . you'll just have to hear it . . . a very nice soft/loud effect, and some marvelous processing, make this one *very* worthwhile.

It's catchy, to the point and also quite different (even almost 9 years on), and one of OCR's earliest gems. Fantastico!

The problem I have with the mix is that aside from what sounds like two runthroughs of the melody, there's nothing else except for a 30 second outro that is a bit strange. More development and this piece would have been really nice.
Not too bad, overall.

:00-:55 we get a nicely layered intro(even the not so great trumpet patch fits in a way)
:56-1:30 goes absolutely crazy, but still keeps itself in touch with the other half of the song.
1:31-end takes us out with some screeching and nice drum work.
Very cool for such an old song, definitely a keeper.

Pray thee, on this first day of the seventh year of our Lord, the King, we quest forth to slay the heinous trolls which doth infest our fair lands like a cancerous plague!
We shalt summon the bravest warriors of the kingdom using Grimdor's Ancient Horn of Summoning (you can tell it is ancient by the not so awesome patch used.), and gather the noble souls together for a crusade, the magnitude which has not been seen!
Brave warriors, now that thou art summoned, GET OUT THERE AND BASH SOME FUCKING TROLLS!!! GHAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!
Upgrade the trumpet patch and it's a winner, IMO. Little heavy on the feedback at the end, but a great surprise and a fun mix.

In summary, just plain awesome all around.

I really like the opening. After that it goes nuts, but still remains pretty good. It goes hardcore. Hardcore what? Well not techno, not rock, just hardcore! In order to find out you'll have to listen!
