Psycho Crusher (Cristán Escobar Marín) follows up his October, 2012 Wolfenstein 3D debut with this hard rock arrangement of Mass Effect:
"Ahh... the galaxy map music, present in all 3 Mass Effect games. Its recurrent melody always got stuck in my head, so it was only natural for me to make an arrangement of it. It's a heavily layered piece, and I also took a lot of liberties with it. Basically, the rhythmic section after the main melody is a whole new riff which I thought fit pretty well with the rest. I hope you like it! Greetings from Chile!"
With such a synthetic, sci-fi feel, it's cool to see ME's tunes get more of a raw, rock makeover, and Cristán does an excellent job ensuring that the same depth & atmosphere are maintained even in this newer, more organic context. DarkeSword writes:
"In agreement with Deia and Larry. This is a great take on the source. Really personalized; going full-on rock is a great choice, and executed really well. Could really see this on a Mass Effect montage video. Great performances; I thought the drums were a little thin, but no deal-breakers. Really nice dynamics too."
Judges did agree that production was rough around the edges here and there, but that didn't prohibit enjoying the piece & appreciating the arrangement. Palpable corroborates the sentiment:
"There's lots of little things I would improve here, but it's hard to deny that the overall package has a lot going for it. Creative arrangement ideas, expressive performances and sequencing, and a real sick moody vibe. I think Larry's on the money when he says that a few years from now, you'll probably hear all sorts of ways you can improve this, Cristian, but I think you've met our bar. Great job!"
Electric guitar really dominates, here, but the variety of processing makes each part distinct, and there's plenty of dynamic contrast to keep things interesting. Excellent stuff from Psycho Crusher, who successfully strips down Mass Effect's percolating, futuristic textures into something that casts their core in a new light!
