"This is a resub. I had submitted the first remix without actually listening to the source. Yes, I'm an idiot. This time, I added some more source material and added a softer section to the song with some piano and a violin (programmed by me) and added a nice improvised piano section to the end of the song courtesy of Mr. Zircon. I also recorded the bass guitar and drums (Roland E-Drums with DFH Superior drum samples) live, though the drums did require a little bit of quantizing. This is all, of course, thanks to Steppo's original arrangement. God, I hope this one makes it..."
Awesome job of slowing down the intro theme into a rock anthem with signature Sixto guitars, flowing piano (violin's a classy touch here, too), and most excellent drummage. Sounds like the right tools were used - electronic drum pads for an excellent live input interface, triggering DFH Superior samples, some of the best out there. It's great work by everyone involved; sounds like the original arrangement was Steppo's, Juan came in for the epic rock guitar treatment, and Andy finished up with the piano bits. Mr. Aversa writes:
"I followed this mix since its inception, and really liked the arrangement concept even before Sixto got involved and gave it the full-on rock overhaul. From the guitar and drum tones to the "wall of sound" production, this mix really reminds me of Linkin Park; and hey, even if you hate 'em, you can't knock their meticulous execution.
I was very happy to contribute even a little bit to this in the form of a piano part which was, in turn, inspired by the warm piano sounds that LP uses. Fun fact: Juan had me adding some sweeping strings too before the choruses, but after I wrote them and sent the WAVs in, it turned out that they were a little *too* epic for this one."
Not a Linkin Park fan, myself... for one, they've gotta have one of the worst band names ever, right up there with Hoobastank... but I don't wanna piss off the LP fans out there, so I'll just say that while I'm not one, I can still respect both skills & production, and I certainly am digging this joint. Nice title too; appropriately dramatic. In essence, not much to complain about: 2007 was a great year for Sixto collabs, and it seems like he's deadset on making 2008 just as grand. Good work from Steppo on a VERY solid, original arrangement, as well: while people might see the names Sixto and zircon and assume this was mostly them, the initial core idea came from Steppo, for whom this is a debut mix on OCR. While the initial version was rejected, this revision is the hotness, and he set the ball rolling in the first place, so massive props there. Definitely a stylish way to make one's debut, with a couple assists from some talented vets!
