Harmony of a Hunter was indeed a great album, and here's another mix to prove it, courtesy newcomer Cory Richards, aka Omni-Psyence:
"I signed up to contribute to the Metroid 25th Anniversary fan album, "Harmony of a Hunter" and all I knew is that I wanted to do something powerful and emotional. The prologue theme from Super Metroid has a cinematic quality that I still to this day find incredible to hear on the SNES. I don't think I could have picked a cooler track to remix!"
Big, cinematic drums, a sci-fi electronica backbone, plus epic orchestral AND choral elements all combine seamlessly for one hell of a show - there are a LOT of textures here, but it never seems like overkill, plus they all serve the exciting, dynamic arrangement, which oscillates from Western to Eastern, ambient to anthemic, suspenseful to celebratory all in under three minutes. That's a pure engineering feat of impressive control & development; kudos are deserved. Emunator writes:
"...I agree with you that the Prologue is one of the most powerful progressions in video game music history. Good job expanding on it with some really cinematic sound choices that fit great with the electronic textures."
"Yeah this is great work. I'm kind of a sucker for a good film score/electronic blend, and this delivers nicely on that front. I'll go ahead and email Cory and see if we can get a fixed version."
We DID get a version that addressed a cutoff ending & minor clippage, which were the judges' only qualms. This is an amazing, transporting debut that really shows a LOT of depth on Cory's part - definitely looking forward to hearing more from him!

I know there's still more waiting to be accepted, some I have no doubt will go through, it's just a matter of time before they're put through.

Excellent sounds choice for combing the percussion, vocals, and synths. My favorite part was easily the baseline for the aggressive synths. Really helped drive the track.
