Gothic pirate vampire disco dance?!? It's Guifrog, so why the hell not? Of this flamboyant, superbly-sequenced jam from Vampire Variations II, Guilherme writes:
"Olá, pessoas!!! *hugzevery1!11* 6 months already, yeah? I've been pretty concentrated doing my first solo album, which I want to be da bomb. Music part's almost 100% done, and I'm trying to make sure it'll transport listeners to various natural ambients as the tracks go by. Lots of world music, some electronica, MANY experiments and stories; that's all I can say for now. ^^
And here's my new remix, which is for Chernabogue's new project, Vampire Variations 2. Short story: I made a 30 sec. sketch of something cool and sent to Mr. Bogue. He said it had a Pirates of the Caribbean vibe. Voilà -- I developed the song further in a way so it could clearly resemble that movie somehow in its soundscape. I mean, remember the Black Pearl? Something like that, there you are. The title of this remix/ship is a reference to a vampire's really valued treasure: blood! >:[
Of course, I also seasoned it with some harp and hammered dulcimer, just because. See you soon. o/"
Cool concept; at first this sounded more like a gothic, Transylvanian dance/disco jam, but then the swashbuckling PotC-inspired bits came in and the title clicked for me. Really just a lot of fun, with plenty of quick rise/fall passages and deftly-sequenced runs peppering a four-on-the-floor pound cake foundation with swirls of frosting. Great, now I'm hungry. Chimpazilla waxes maritime & shivers our timbers:
"This is epic as all get-out. Very dramatic and exciting, and groovy at the same time. Great mix of piano, strings/brass, choir, pounding beat, harp/dulcimer, (and church organ!) and electronica. Heavy on the reverb/delay, but it's working well here. Anchors a-weigh, ya scurvy dawg!"
"This reminds me of those classical orchestra cassettes you used to be able to get which had a disco beat layered over the top, except with a Pirates of the Caribbean vibe (as the title suggests). Straight up, I enjoyed this mix - it felt like I was about to embark on an adventure where I'm gonna whip me some skeletons. You've taken the original and modernised it in a great way. You've made some great choices on instruments (piano, strings, organ, electronic bass), and you added a bunch of licks, fills and breaks to make things your own. The whole track sounds fresh from beginning to end."
I was thinking the same exact thing re: old casette tapes of disco classical. My parents probably used to play us some of the very same cuts that Joel is talking about; small world! Great stuff from GF that's got pirates, vampires, blood, disco, a heapin' helpin' of mixed instrumentation, and a veritable smorgasbord of notes all workin' together to make your roger jolly & your long john silver!

New review: This is one of my fav tracks from VV2 -- I have already said that, right? I told Guilherme his track had a strong "Pirates of the Caribbean" feeling and he developed it quite nicely. It still has his own dance/electro style. Truly an unique take on the less-known source -- but I'm sure it would fit a modern CV game.

A mix of Castlevania, Pirates melodies-like influence and a bit of a disco beat......that's a hell of a combo. A combo, I might add, that plays to a lot of my interests, so I'm definitely a fan of this one.

the orchestration/melodies and the overall mix job is really nice

I always enjoy hearing new Castlevania remixes. This one is pretty nice! Really like the changes in keys and the instrumentation overall.

Unholy cow, there's so much going on at 3:20 and every bit of it is amazing. I don't think I really understood what was going until the end, and then I wanted to start over from the beginning. Color me impressed.

Easily one of my fav tracks from VV2. Awesome work and production.
