Mazedude truly surprises with this balls-to-the-wall Doom 2 ReMix that is much heavier and more aggressive than his previous (though no less impressive) submissions. From the nice use of game samples to the in-your-face pitch-bendin' slap-bass-o-death doubled with a synth bass at points to the extensive dsp that goes above and beyond the call of freaky (truly masterful work in the special effects arena . . . you'll see). Judges were pretty unanimous in their opinion that this was some good gibbing mixage that is both imaginative and fun. Fans of industrial music or - heck - just plain GOOD music shouldn't hesitate. Not much else to say here, other than commending Mazedude on a mix that he obviously spent a lot of time tweaking to perfection (both arrangement and effects) and that branches off into new genre territory relative to his other tracks. Highly recommended.
Another awesome track by Mazedude.

Mazedude delivers again, and really kicks it up. This is possibly one of the coolest mixes i've heard by him. As per the original request, I won't spoil the surprise, but damn, it's awesome. Some of the synths could be a little higher-fi, but it evokes the original pretty well with that crappy distorted guitar sound that appears for a bit on the right side, and the rest of the synths were great, so I am guessing it's intentional. :-)
Super cool stuff, it sounds like some additional mixed meters were added. I know the original had a mixed meter, but more is always cool with me.
Check this one out, everyone.

I'm not very much for slow songs with a sad mood in them, but I have my reasons to think this is great. Mazedude is awesome.

I'd like to see more, and I don't doubt that you'll poke your head back into OCR sometime soon. If it's with another DOOM mix, I'll be happy.

I like his remixes of "Shawn's Got the Shotgun" and "The Demon's Dead" better, but solely because I like prefer the originals. I would love to see him do "Into Sandy's City" (Map 09).
EDIT: I'm retarded. I need to actually look at the remixes before I post. Downloading "Gothic Sandy" right now.
The original tune for this piece was Alice in Chains 'Them Bones', if you want to look it up on a kazaa engine.
I'm nice enough that I've supplied a little clip of the original song here:
Right click & Save as.
(btw: this song still kicks the llama's ass.)
