Last but not least & making his OC ReMix debut comes Ivan Hakštok, whose inverted circumflex "š" makes him approximately ten times cooler than were he simply "Ivan Hakstok," and also provides a nice test of our MySQL UTF8 support. While few of the tracks on Be Aggressive! offer any time to rest, Ivan offers a sweet rock jam that's actually a little less metal and more anthemic & melodic, at times even bordering on pop:
"I've never played Gunstar Heroes, but after this album project was announced, I checked out the soundtrack and thought it was pretty cool, so I decided to claim a track. The source for this is called "Heroes - Reprise for Yellow," and I decided to make it sort of an 80s rock song with the most prominent instrument being the synths, which I think worked out quite well. I haven't got much else to say, I'm always struggling with words in these submission comments (seriously, it takes like 2 hours to write them xD)."
Ever so slightly uneven timing on the intro chugging @ 0'19 is the only real nit I have to pick with an otherwise highly enjoyable rock track; when that delayed, soaring lead guitar enters at 0'38" and things take a step back, it's like a feeling of being suspended in midair for a split second; very free, open, & positive overall vibe, and I like that synth lead gets its own time in the spotlight. Bell pads seal the eighties deal with dem pleasant, tinkling timbres, and overall this is a cogent, enjoyable respite from some of the more aggressive tracks on the album, while still very energetic & toe-tappin' in its own right. Excellent debut from Ivan H. that serves as a slightly sweeter eighties-rock desert to today's menu of assertive, momentous, and - indeed - aggressive arrangements, all paying tribute to one of the greatest Genesis games and an iconic entry in the run & gun genre. Congratulations to Ivan on the mixpost debut, DusK & Mokram on a successful album release, all contributing artists for putting together a lean, mean, aggressive lineup of killer arrangements, Treasure for making some unforgettable 16-bit gold, and Norio Hanzawa for his amazing music!
Be downloading the album, be enjoying the musics, be tweetin' & facebookin' the news, and above all else... Be Aggressive!!

For whatever reason this remix is significantly more difficult to find on Google than other ones.

Lead was a bit too loud in the mix for my tastes but I really really liked this!

Awesome debut, Ivan! Glad to see you finally make it to the front page with such a rockin' 80's mix. So in love with that guitar!
