Moving along... it's been over four years since we've posted a mix from Evil Horde, but he's back & he's bad (in a good way) on Doom II: DQD. While I'm at it, though you should also have gotten a forum notice, if you could help us out and Digg the release story we - and the revenants, hell knights, mancubii, etc. - would greatly appreciate it!!(!!) So, Janne Roivainen - better known as Evil Horde - has improved his craft during his rather lengthy hiatus, and seems to have developed a style that's more aggressive and metal, i.e. perfect for a Doom II project. He writes:
"My main approach to remixing this song, as any other song, was to grasp the essence of it and just have fun. The most notable element in the original MIDI was that awesome, pounding rhythm, so I definitely used that as a starting point. The other thing I noticed was that the song is just one huge build up. So I kinda used that too. Starting from just the rhythm I started to build up the momentum. And it was fun. I used the original chord progression and started to jam over it, filling the gaps and creating athmospheres, ending up with an actual hook - by accident - that wasn't in the original. That weird bit with two guitars just shredding the hell out of eachother - I guess you can almost call it a chorus - was me just totally improvising to test some lead material over the rhythm. And then I heard what I just played and was all like "Hell yeah".
... Overall it was a really excellent song to remix. Doom soundtracks just keep on giving. But the thing is, after all these angsty, in-your-face Doom mixes I just had to make NICE music for a while. Actually, I think I'm still on that path. Still, sometimes at night, I look at that guitar and the knob that says Distortion on it, and make an EVIL grin. Yeah, creepy. In all the wrong ways..."
THIS Doom II mix goes to *eleven*! Janne definitely captures the pounding, relentless rhythm of the source, a motif prevalent among a lot of Doom music, with a deep & grinding electric bass and guitars that, as advertised, do seem to shred the hell out of each other. There're tons of chugs, meaty acoustic drums, and wall-of-shred guitars, juxtaposing well against my previous waltz. The screeches, squeals, wah riffage, and general noodling towards the end really continue to up the ante, readily achieving the desired build of intensity and sheer force. I'm a little pressed for time at the moment, but suffice to say that this mix is probably more in line with expectations for the album, has a metric ton of evil voltage, literally secretes shreddage, represents a nice comeback for Evil Horde, and most definitely belongs on Doom II: Delta-Q-Delta!
