Mr. Danimal, who Larry informs me recently celebrated a birthday, writes:
"This song is the first song Armcannon ever arranged as a whole band. Dan and Chris used to play around with this particular theme when jamming with each other before the actual inception of the band. Since it was the first track we ever collaborated on, it has a special place in our hearts and appears as the first song on our first album entitled Legvacuum. The backwards piano section at the end was a random idea that Chris recorded and ended up getting stuck on the end of the song because we liked it so much. We have been performing this song live since 2006 and can be seen being performed on youtube"
So, who the hell says video game "cover" bands can't arrange?
Certainly no one in their right mind who's heard this frenetic, electric/orchestral/chamber music public service announcement from your thoughtful friends at Armcannon. Sure, this rocks out in familiar ways that you'd expect (and love), but it's also got an ominous orchestral intro, plenty of calmer piano bits, and - most importantly - a metric ton of variation to the arrangement. There are enough arrangement ideas here to make two or three mixes that would stand on their own, and all of them are fresh and work quite well with the Kraid theme. Definitely a solid decision to keep the backwards piano bits, too; the overall production for the track is a little schizophrenic in terms of EQ/DSP/whatever, but rather than trying to compensate somehow, this unorthodox ending seems to embrace inconsistency, and stylistically this seems like a great decision to me. This isn't just a quality mix, it's a memorable mix; you get the sense that it has the "special place" Dan mentions in his submission email in the hearts and minds of those performing/arranging it. I can see how this track could be a catalyst for the formation of what eventually became Armcannon, and they should be proud to have it be so integral a part of their history. Great track.
