Rock out. This is one of my favorite CV mixes and perhaps my favorite goat mix; Chris does CV3 in a style that refines his usual heavy metal prowess with a little bit of a classical rock influence and mucho variations on guitar processing and articulation, including mean wah-wah and oh-so-lovely trills. It's the soloing section at 2'00" that really wins me over, as - while still very heavy - it ventures more into classical rock territory with some power riffing that's primed, pumped, and ready for airplay on the local classic rock station of your choice, right in the middle of a block of Led Zep. Plus, this mix pulls more transitions and has more variety, and in general flows better than his previous mixes, all of which have been perfectly impressive in their own right. Here, though, the drums and backing material not only reflects what's going on with the melody, it sometimes steals the spotlight temporarily. For example, at 0'57" the underlying power chords of ultimate doom that anchor the accelerating trill are in and of themselves badass. The whole package comes together seamlessly, making the near-five-minute length seem over way too early. The structure itself follows the original fairly closely, but the modifications made to the melodic line to take full advantage of Chris's skills on electric, the balls-to-the-wall rock percussion, and the energy level's exponentially multiplied verve all combine for some real hard stuff. Best not to go swimming within two hours of listening, and to not expose to pregnant mothers, people w/ heart conditions, etc. To make your Labor Day weekend all the sweeter, Chris announced his plans to eventually remix all of Castlevania 3 along with this submission, leading to similarly headbanging tunage of the Belmont flavor. I am so using the rest of convertible season to play this in my stang. Heavy.
