- Terms (BETA): aggressive brass collab compo electric-guitar epic metal orchestral rock strings
Completing our HURRICANE-THEMED MIXFLOOD is our first collab between SNAPPLEMAN & VIRT (!!), working under the joint moniker of PREENUS (don't ask, don't tell) with an EPIC (you expected anything else?) Zelda arrangement from WIND Waker. WIND, you see, because it's rather a bit windy right now. While sailing in a hurricane is generally inadvisable - sometimes a mast can be TOO full - wethinks you're going to love this badass metal-orchestral opus. Snap writes:
"Jake wrote the arrangment (in like 5 hours), sent me the MIDI he wrote, I did the guitars, bass, drums, keys etc etc, he did the massive orchestration (in like a day, srsly he's insane) and sent me stems, I mixed it, BAM. <3 u all. Also, this was our first release as the group "Preenus", we might do more in the future. Oh yeah, this was a DoD entry for December 2011 month, the theme was Nintendo VS Sega."
I don't know about you, but I'm certainly hoping this is one Preenus that rears its head again; at 5'39" virt+snap take on several source tunes, and restraint is NOT on the menu. Shreddage, chuggage, machine-gun drummage, and better-than-it-needs-to-be orchestrationage ARE, with some À la carte wankage thrown in, too. Silly me, upon first listen I was ACTUALLY worried for a second when I thought the arrangement might be too similar to HyperDuck's iconic & brilliant WW ReMix from 25YL, but then 0'34" hits with some Pirates of the Carribean orchestral bombast and we divebomb into full shred + orch at 0'46" and any such notions are emphatically quashed.
Doing a conventional play-by-play in this case is downright prohibitive; there's a ton of STUFF going on here, and it's all brilliant, and you're probably going to make things in your pants. Snirt? Vappleman? Mortal men may be from Mars, but these gents are from Preenus, they've crafted some epic Zelda metal to enjoy (side of hurricane optional), and here's hoping their tomphallery & epicality continues with future collaborations.
