And we're back.... with Mega Turrican!! Of all the Turrican games I've played, MT had my favorite music - right from the very beginning, with the runs & arpeggios flying all over the place, it made me stop wondering what a "turrican" actually... is... and just get down with the business. It's almost silly that it's taken this long for us to post something off its impeccably-constructed soundtrack; of this excellent rock arrangement, Simon writes:
"Here is a new collaboration. Scaredsim and Wild_Cat, bassist from Grospixels. 100% Frenchie! This was our entry at Dwelling of Duels Level 3 Month. Main source used here is from Mega Turrican (so better list the song under that game), and we added a bit of Golden Axe too, because that was a cool way to have nice 80s synth tracks. And 80s is the life! Now enjoy this."
Very badass that they mixed some Golden Axe in there - that's a classic, underrated Sega soundtrack that doesn't get enough love. Don't have any background on the mix title, but I like it, in that it makes me think of a bizarre combination of Saruman and Michael Mann, neither of which have a doodle damn to do with Turrican or VGM, but make an amusing pair. As for the mix, you've got some very substantive rock/metal that hits hard - the sheer oomph on that snare impact certainly takes me back to the stadium rock of the late 20th century. Electric guitar helms pretty much the entire arrangement, although the synth break at 2'19" opens things up a bit towards the end, as does the modulation upwards when the guitar alley-oops it & takes over again. Assuming Wild_Cat contributed the bass part and nothing else (?), this is more or less Simon's mix, but it's clear the collaboration could only have helped things along. The blending of themes is seamless & natural, both energy and interest are maintained throughout, and in general this is a kickass, crisp ReMix that reminds me of some of my favorite Sega Genesis tunes!
