Torzelan (Joachim Sandberg) makes his OCR debut with this biting, aggressive, metal MMX8 mix from Maverick Rising that's book-ended by a deceptively innocent music box (love that winding effect) but has wicked quantities of shreddage, chuggage, and machine-gun drummin' mojo. The artist writes:
"Things are about to get serious and this ominous track is the build-up. The original was already "epic," but I wanted it to hit you with some heavy too. The dual-meaning title (interpretable both as "March of the Strong/Iron Will" and the more literal "Iron Shall March") reflects the feeling and imagery meant to be conveyed with the music; the Mavericks' obsession with a "new world" and violent advances to make it so."
I love the double-reading; it's the type of thing that's fun when it's a happy accident, but even better when it's intentional. Joachim certainly hits us with some heavy, and if the badass rhythm guitars aren't enough for you, those leads at 1'57" up the ante even further. Album director Bahamut writes:
"Just as "VS Lumine ~ The First Form" from Mega Man X8 is the beginning of the final battle in that game, "Iron Will March" is the start to the final battle in Maverick Rising. Joachim put together a great track for building up anticipation for the big fight with the blast beats and dramatic synths. The guitars add a great touch to it as well."
I've seen Torzelan's name around for a good while, and he actually won the Sonic Snowboard for the promotion/contest we did for Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games way back in 2010 - hopefully he's been putting that bad boy to good use. This track is a great, high-energy debut mix & contributed a lot of strength to the (well-represented) metal contingency on MR; definitely looking forward to hearing what else he has in store!
