Hot off the presses... this used to be called simply "Monstrous Turtles", but Larry suggested the small yet completely essential addition of exclamatory punctuation, and what could have been an unfortunate mix titling situation was salvaged. Somewhat. Personally, JJT's "Koopacalypse" and my own "One Flew Over the Koopa's Nest" and "Night on Koopa Mountain" were all much better options, but the burden of genius in this sad world of ours is watching others fail to recognize it... and pay the dire, dire consequences. While Mr. Aversa may not be the resident king of Christening his auditory output, let this reflect in no way upon its actual quality, which is as per usual quite high. He channels a sound that somewhat resembles some of Protricity's stuff, ReMixing Super Mario World's antagonistic leitmotifs into a menacing and aggressive composition. zircon writes:
"Here's a remix that I did after listening to the source for the first time in a few years. And, in fact, the only reason I listened to it was because I was judging a remix of the same theme. Full circle, or something. Anyway, this mix is just a fun little romp using my favorite blend of styles... hope no one's sick of that by now! By the way, the title is taken from a random sentence in the instruction booklet. :x Enjoy!!"
I for one ain't sick of it; Andy's completely in his element doing the electro-orchestral thing, and this theme works very well with it. I could have sworn I heard a metal version of said theme at MAGFest this year, and perhaps it served as something of an inspiration, too, but my mind could be playing tricks on me; it happens when you reach the old, decrepit age of 27. Pretty soon I'll be wearing mandiapers and pulling my pants up to my chin. In the meantime, highlights include rhythmically gated/chopped choir samples, some fancy wicked runs on the synth lead, delicate synth bells leading into shredding, mean guitar (Monstrous Juxtaposition!), and Andy's signature dish of meaty beats for the children to enjoy. Whether your turtles are monstrous like Koopa, righteous like mutant ninjas, or filled with meat like Gamera, chances are you'll love AA's newest gem. Dig it.
