Sixto teamed up with Andy on this one, combining rock and electronica elements. Early in the stages for the VotL project, Andy expressed his goal to me that almost every track on the project be postable on OverClocked ReMix, and it's amazing the extent to which the album has succeeded thus far and will most likely continue to succeed with this vision. Don't worry, we'll still be posting plenty of new stuff you HAVEN'T already heard, but these VotL tracks are hot, there's a lot of them, and they're simply fantastic. Introing with simple breaks and a synth pattern, things build up to Juan's rather conspicuous entrance at 0'24" - if you didn't know there was going to be guitar on this track, you do now. There are some small but detectable timing issues on this blazingly fast section, to my ears, but the pairing of blistering guitar and electronica is interesting - I've heard aggressive synth paired up with equally aggressive guitar before, to be sure, but the sheer velocity this puppy travels at is rather different. Things break out at 0'56" to a mellow, halftime shakuhachi-led rendition of the main theme, then cut back into the mad milieu of menace for a bit more, then back to the melody, this time with Juan joining in at 2'18" for another iteration with a badass counter-melodic solo that trades with a synth lead from Andy but busts back in at 2'44" with Guitar Hero-style noodling. Speaking of which, I just picked up GH3, and damn do I wish this track was on there :) Andy sez:
"Sixto kicked off this one; he sent me an MP3 of the first part of the mix, prior to the ethnic stuff playing the main theme. I thought what he had was very much like the Black Mages in terms of performance and style, but even more interpretive. I then added the ethnic section, sent it back, he loved it, and we went from there. The end result is a heavy, driving mix that really owes its high level of energy to Sixto's fantastic guitar and drum work. Though, I did have fun soloing!"
This is some supaa high-energy adrenalinified mojo-pumping bidness, getting all in your face time and time again, and each time backing away for a nice half-tempo melodic bit, making you think it's gonna stay prim and proper, before rudely continuing with its original face-melting cadence. Which works for me; I could put this on my alarm clock and I think even on two hours of sleep, it'd be damn effective. More excellent VotL stuff from two of the album's largest contributors.
