"I did this track for the August 2007 DoD originally and decided that, based on some news, that I needed to finish it in the way that I intended to finish it. It turns out that someone is going to be sending it to Rob Hubbard, the guy who originally wrote the soundtrack, but the caveat was that I had to finish it tonight in order to do so. Sooooooooo I retooled the whole thing tonight and this is it. In conjunction with that, it seemed like a good time to submit a new song to OCR. I promised I'd submit more stuff, so I better not stop at just one!"
Not sure if Mr. Hubbard ever received the track; hopefully norg can chime in with the story, but either way this is a great homage to one of the giants of C64 VGM and VGM in general. norg blends metal, ska, punk, classic SID elements, and isn't afraid to segue from:
- a more menacing, aggressive tone into...
- major-key, anthematic synth power chords, then follow THAT up with...
- a more ambient section at 1'49" with twisted, metallic fret noises, chromatic synth passages, and a snare with a reverb tail the size of Texas...
... and we're not even halfway through. Things build back up, then at 3'08"... disco? Almost... Organ and clavichord join in along with a strong downbeat for a bit before the mix gets back to its rock roots with some soaring lead guit bits before concluding triumphantly with a jam-out finish. This mix delivers a satisfying five-course meal of guitar, drums, synths, bass, and keys, exploring several different ideas in one energetic, fuel-injected chassis.
