What exactly IS a "Langrisser"?
I really did spend fifteen quality minutes trying to find an acceptable explanation of this game's title today... Is it "one who langrisses"? The predecessor to this sequel was localized and retitled Warsong in the US, which is a little more intuitive and almost 100% less German. If you're in the know on this whole langrissing fad, chime in on the comments thread and set us all straight. Until you do, I'm operating under the assumption that "langrissing" is the act of post-coital defenestration, and that a langrisser is one who commits said act. Repeatedly. Of course, none of that was in the game, but it doesn't matter... don't crap on my fantasy.
Fortunately, we don't need a solid definition, because regardless of its etymology, we can acknowledge Langrisser (and in this case its sequel) as a video game with great music. And, luckily, that's what we're all about. Dr. Manhattan and Scaredsim are here to further introduce us to the music of this series, with a mit voller Kraft, furchteinflößend ReMix of Langrisser II. You don't need to have played the game at all to get into the hard rock bliss they've laid down. It's not the most expansive arrangement, and it sure is mastered pretty damn loud, but those two points aside, this one goes to elf. Mr. Butterfield clarifies his vote to post:
"Obviously extremely coverish on the melodies, but there's original drums and guitar harmony even in the first half, some really subtle piano in there, soloing obviously, countermelodies, and all that good stuff... There is more than a minimal amount of original material in this, and both source melodies are tackled twice in different ways."
Simon got a little fresh with OA (who's a pretty mellow, unoffensive dude...) when we asked about the production and a possible modification. To clarify, when you open this puppy up in Audacity (or Sound Forge, if you're like me), you'll see a huge, steady stream of solid color. It definitely *is* mastered with the loudness war, wall-of-sound mentality. BUT it doesn't ever clip, and stays beneath 0.0 the whole time - as far as I could tell, at least. So, hopefully Simon's calmed down in the interim, but even if he hasn't, I guess the important thing is that we're posting the mix in its original hot & loud form. It's a great, enjoyable rock arrangement of source material that REALLY deserves some attention. Just close your eyes and PRETEND it's from a Square game if you really have to, but do check it out. Great work from Simon & Hugo!
