More Souls music from RoeTaKa, who continues his one-man-army musical assault on the franchise's dark, dramatic scoring with his own equally compelling interpretations. This orchestral/cinematic piece is STUNNING; there are some moments in the fourth minute that'll take your breath away, and while the mood is still serious and at times somber, there's a vein of hope & light that runs through the whole piece, echoing the mix title:
""One Who Craves Souls" is one of my favourite songs from any modern game. It's something I've wanted to remix for a while now; I wanted to do it justice. An upgrade to my samples and computer really gave me the inspiration to go for it. This is a song I really didn't want to change too much or detract from its emotion; part of what makes the original song so good is how it weighs on you. I just wanted to do a powerful take on it that amplifies the original but also has its own emotional journey."
This is emotional territory that really reaches out; Alex has again done a phenomenal job in capturing a specific atmosphere and imbuing it with life, tension, and immediacy, and he may have outdone himself with regard to overall passion - the blend of instrumentation, the restrained choral components, and the upper-register string work shine through as highlights. Emunator writes:
"Out of the many Demon's/Dark Souls remixes we've received from you, this is easily one of my favorites (just make a damn album, already!) The ebb and flow in this arrangement is astounding, it feels much more organic than the source tune while still holding tight to the melodies and motifs that make the original memorable. Your production sounds great here, too - particularly the piano and strings, which contribute a huge amount of humanity and emotion to the arrangement, despite being sampled. This achieves exactly what you set out to accomplish, excellent work!"
Couldn't have said it better myself; Alex's series of Souls ReMixes that began late last year has continued into this year & has been both a complete surprise and a memorable trend in OCR history, bringing a very distinct style to the table and giving these more modern classics a welcome spotlight. Each has been superlative, and this inspiring and magical work is no exception!
