Newcomer Pokérus (Patricio Thielemann) sends us a rock/metal/djent/chiptune combo arrangement of Zelda dungeon themes that kicks out the jams with an aggressive, syncopated blend of chugs & chip:
"This is a little Zelda "medley" made for my 3rd VGM album called Infection #03. A little rocker in certain moments, a little "djent wannabe" in others, but is like my personal perfect idea of this eerie vibe of dungeons in this Zelda game. Hope you like it! :D"
This one would have been good for Halloween, too, methinks - definitely sits at the intersection of spooky chiptune melodies & satisfying shreddage. Liontamer writes:
"Nice use of the NES-style lead at 1:31. Sweet ear candy with the sound effect from 2:35-2:41, then another NES-style chip line at 2:43. Loving the combination of rock and chip sounds, with the NES parts clicking here and accenting the piece."
Judges had some production concerns related to EQ and perceived muddiness at points, and some of the timing isn't dead-on, but the first issue isn't prohibitive in its extent and the second is arguably just stylistic; as DragonAvenger says:
"I can hear what some of the others are mentioning, but I think the arrangement and personalization are really carrying this mix really well. Very good stylistic changes of the melodies, and great backing parts to support the track as a whole."
I think Patricio does an especially nice job of keeping the NES textures relevant & engaged, not just using them as background for guitars but giving them plenty of work to do, and the structural/rhythmic change-ups keep things interesting throughout. Solid, kickin' debut from Pokérus - hope to hear more soon!
