This rock/metal MM3 ReMix from Danimal Cannon is the business. He just released an original chiptune album w/ Zef, Parallel Processing, which is also rather badass, and which you should check out & buy if you like amazing chiptune-oriented stuff.
Where does he get the time to do originals when he's in 763 different bands and ALSO makes solo arrangements like this? I don't know, but contributing to (or heading up) so many projects/initiatives hasn't cramped his style or hurt his musical mojo one bit - the force remains strong with this one, and while this mix plays it pretty close to the source, just amping up the bassline like he did makes a pretty big difference in listener focus - I certainly knew that part was there, in the source, but the aggressive placement & performance here makes it far more of a highlight. Production really pops, too, with every last element packing a nice punch. DC writes:
"I made this for the MAGfest X Dwelling of Duels competition in 2012. Both of these themes have been something I wanted to remix since I started rediscovering video game music. It is definitely one of my more restrained mixes, both of the songs had a very definitive groove that I wanted to embrace and then throw my own little Danimal flavor over. I was also unable to contain myself when presented with such tasty chord progressions, so some guitar solos were really inevitable."
Mega Manhood indeed... while I'm not entirely sold on the mix subtitle, that's about the only thing I'm not loving, as this mix is crisp, aggressive without being overbearing, throws in more than enough interpretation & personalization to make it his own, and generally kicks ass. It's a testament to the overall strength of the Dwelling of Duels competition that this was one of several amazing tracks from that particular duel, including 'Full Mast' and 'Hero of Celceta' among others. Excellent stuff from Danimal; downloading should be considered as inevitable as those guitar solos were, and check out his album for some original work that fans of VGM & great music in general should dig!
