Argle's contribution to Balance and Ruin was a late-breaking addition & result of the second competition held to fill in some of the gaps on source tunes that hadn't been arranged yet. Incorporating bold, cinematic power chords, industrial drums, epic percussion, and a steady pulse, he really did a great job of expanding on a more bare bones source. zircon offers a great description:
"The Fanatics Tower theme is one of those "so little source, it's hard to remix" tracks, but artists like Argle seem to take that simply as a challenge. This piece is dripping with fantastic industrial percussion work and has a great, gradual build. In parts, it's like Nine Inch Nails meets the Matrix soundtrack. The mixing and production are polished to a spitshine in this one and the results speak for themselves - this songs could easily be featured in any big budget blockbuster movie or game. Moody, dark, and excellent."
Pretty much; additionally impressive since it was crafted on a more abbreviated timetable. The artist adds:
"This became part of the Bawance and Wuin album. Ahem, sorry, been watching Life of Brian again. Never thought I'd have the opportunity to contribute to Balance and Ruin, but lo and behold zircon held a remix contest for some of the tracks. When zircon held the second contest, I decided to try the "Fanatics" tower theme, under the assumption that I'd have little or no competition for that one. I know it isn't a classic track like many of the other FF6 tunes, but I hope people enjoy my take on it. My craven, self-serving gamble paid off. Hehhehhehheh."
High-five ;) This piece definitely paints a stark picture, with minor-key piano playing off tearing & scraping snares and pistons. Things get big & bold at 1'24" with a procession that sounds sinister and large... Andy mentions The Matrix and NiN, but I'd perhaps throw God of War into the mix, for these big orch hit + choral chords & some of the more subtle Eastern intonations. Achieving a very grand scope and oscillating between industrial and cinematic emphases, this arrangement shows a different side of Argle and does a fantastic job fully exploring a very minimalist source!
