Yeah, if you've listened to Echoes of Betrayal, Light of Redemption, you've already heard this (badass, hyper-aggressive) ReMix from Kidd Cabbage, but you HAVEN'T seen the submission email below (oooOOOooo) and you haven't posted on the review thread about how badly your face was melted, and you probably also haven't seen this Rock Band custom playthrough of the mix, either.
"Haha, soooo... I kind of dropped the gun on this mix. I did this mix for the FFIV project on this site, but the thing is that I didn't really know how things worked at the time, and didn't realize the difference of quality control between projects and site-posted songs, so I just never really sent this mix through you guys. Whoopsie-daises.
So, anyway, Cannibal Corpse called me about this song. They want their music back. I'm in the middle of a lawsuit right now and George "Corpsegrinder" Fischer has sent me videos telling me that he was going to be eating cereal from the top of my skull. The song, despite being listed under a mix of Dreadful Fight is actually a medley of three songs, and is kind of more based on Epilogue #3. I mean, I said that during the production, but they're all "Eh, whatevs."
This was my first recording that I had to use direct-in guitar instead of a miked amp, which pissed me off. After this song, I didn't record any metal for over a year solely due to the reason that I wasn't satisfied with my direct tone (after a year of tone-tweaking, I made the Touhou mix posted on here, and that's my 'satisfied enough' tone). The difference of guitar tone affected the mix as a whole, as does the lack of synths, and makes this more of a straight-forward face-smashing mix than the bouncier, snythier metal I've done. This is a mix that you can sacrifice goats to.
On another note, I broke my arm during the FFIV project. This song was my arm therapy."
That, good sir, is some pretty sadomasochistic therapy. At any rate, goat sacrificers and metal lovers alike should be all about this song, as it's just plain evil. Crunchy, heavy, chunky, galvanized metal. It's also a solid arrangement that works in several themes effectively, but you could be forgiven for not fully appreciating that on first listen, as your cheeks (both sets) are torn off and musical skull dentistry performed on your noggin. It's H-E-A-V-Y, mmkay? Director Andrew Luers writes:
"When I got the finished track, I was a little concerned, because the song itself was so relentless compared to the rest of the album. Thankfully I was albe to fit it in next to some other hard-hitting tracks for the album flow to be solid. The playing is incredibly precise, and the rhythm section is punishing. Definitely the heaviest track on the album. Though the main theme in the mix is one of the battle themes, there are some cameos of other themes as well, most notably the most brutal rendition of Castle Damcyan I've heard. Soo metal :D"
Awesome, completely brutal work from Kidd.
