Hemingway meets SATAN?!? Our first featured ReMix of Tekken 7 comes courtesy Ivan Hakštok, who offers up an energetic rock/metal (with synths!) take on the original d'n'b source:

""Heat Haze Shadow" might be better known as the song used in the Tekken 7 trailer. I liked it back when that trailer was released, but after hearing it in the context of the game, I was blown away. I knew I had to cover it somehow, and only two days after the game was out I ended up with this remix. :)

My remix is a metal (power metal?) rendition of the original DnB tune. Since the source is so damn great, I stayed pretty close to it other than the genre shift and a guitar solo, but I don't think that's a dealbreaker. Hope you enjoy it! :)"

What's not to like? I tend to mentally think of this more as harder rock than as metal per se, but that's irrelevant to its rocking out & being chock full o' satisfying chugs & power chords. Sir_NutS sums it up:

"Love the combination of synths and galloping guitar chugs here. The neck-breaking speed adds a lot of energy to the arrangement. Great way to introduce the solo around the 2 minute mark, and great, clean performance. Even though the song has a lot of energy you knew how to manage it very well, with interspersed changes in pace and little breakdowns. Production is clean and any objections I would have on this aspect are pretty minor. Super good, fun and energetic stuff."

Not much else to say :) Great to see Ivan applying his talents to modern VGM & to see Tekken still going strong!
