MORE THUNDER THOUIN! I absolutely loved Yan's debut mix from early last year, partly because I'm a HUGE fan of SCIV, but mostly because it was badass. Very glad to be posting a follow-up, and also glad it's from a game that hasn't gotten enough love - Batman for the Genesis. The artist writes:
"I'm really excited to cover this game because it brings back a lot of memories.. Naoki Kodaka is like a legend in my opinion, what he did on numerous titles was always melodicaly driven and epic . So, when I browsed trought the overclocked list, I couldn't believe that there was not a single remix about this game. C'mon guys ! the whole soundtrack is awesome!! I altered the structure a bit.. especially for flugelheim, but the main melody is always present so I hope it's ok for the judges. After 2:33 I stick with that section until the end because it felt more engaging and easy to built up the climax with this melody.
So, here it is, I'm really happy to pay my respect to an epic composer and I hope you guys will like it!"
And they did, unanimously. Which isn't surprising, based on the strength of Thunder's first mix. Once again we've got an epic hybrid orchestral arrangement, this time blending in some sweet electric guitar, acoustic piano, and rock drums. This guy means business, and his second ReMix shows even more of what he can do. Very unconventional ending that fades out everything but drums & bass elements; I think it works, and it's certainly a bold move. OA sums up my own feelings:
"Pretty. Damn. Excellent.
This arrangement style reminds me a lot of the Terran music from the first Starcraft, which I thought was very well done. The textures were perfect, the part-writing was varied, and slowing the melody down really gives it a dramatic feel that I think really works. There is a lot of personalization put into this, but there is a strong connection throughout. I really enjoyed this one, the style is great and and execution is confident and powerful."
So it's powerful, creative, distinct, confident, arranges a game we didn't have a mix for yet, and continues in the artist's initial, impressive style while expanding it as well. What's not to like? Superb sophomore mixpost from Thunder Thouin; eagerly anticipating whatever comes next!
