Following Washudoll's impressive debut comes another great newcomer track off of Maverick Rising, this time from Dominic Ninmark, who writes:
"A powerful, energetic metal remix of the first X-Hunters stage theme from X2!"
And so it is; truth in advertising! I love the fade-intro of a single repeating guitar riff that builds & trades off to synth at 0'15" with a divebomb transition, and then BAM - are those some orchestra-hit runs at 0'29" or WHAT? Intense; we don't see the orchestra hit 'round these parts as much lately, but with this single ReMix they've resurfaced en masse. It works since the style is an over-the-top, almost uniquely Japanese sort of metal (J-Metal??) where orch hits are still allowed to run free and play with the other kids. Dominic's actually got several hot tracks on the album, but Wes C. singled this one out:
"Disregarding that Counter Hunter Stage 1 from Mega Man X2 is one of my favorite Mega Man X series game sources, this is still one of my favorite songs from the album because it is energetic and does a great job at building up and unleashing that energy upon you. It also manages to accomplish all of this without getting too repetitive, which is a feat considering how the song uses the same refrain a lot. Dominic instantly convinced me here."
Of the mixes posted thus far, this probably comes the closest to resembling a comprehensive upgrade to the instrumentation while maintaining the overall style; not too much deviation, in that regard, but as Wes says the impressive part is the execution. This is potent, active, electrified stuff, produced with a confident ability to jam a lot of movement & layers into a high-velocity structure without things feeling sloppy or rushed. Great work from Dominic, who certainly made his mark on Maverick Rising and will hopefully continue contributing to future projects!
