  1. Not at all, I just figure it'd be easier to describe in person. E-mail me, knightwagner at gmail dot com. (don't want spam, heh)
  2. So here's what's up: I'm a professional wrestler based in the Midwest, I work for a company called AAW: Professional Wrestling Redefined in the Chicago area. Later in the spring, I will be debuting new music but the requirement is that it must be custom music or chosen from a royalty free site they provided. I hate everything on the site, it sounds mass produced. I need something with more character, more in line with my vision. So I'm looking to collaborate with somebody interested in this type of project and since I am unable to make it, I came here since I knew I might find the help I need. The song will be very melodic metal with a lot of hardcore metal influence. Ideally you'd be in my area (Midwest) so we could discuss and work together in person. I'm willing to drive for this, it is vital. PM me our just reply here, makes no difference to me and thank you.
  3. Believe it or not, I very rarely listen to new music anymore. I'm still trapped in the late 90's/early 00's. I have a TRUSTcompany CD in my car's player right now, lol. I don't pirate music and I have bought maybe five CD's in the last five or six years. I could even name them: Finger Eleven, Dethklok, Boston's Greatest Hits, Five Finger Death Punch and Celldweller. Two of those don't count as new music. FFDP is because I'm a metalhead. Dethklok is Dethklok and I don't need to explain why. However, Celldweller is amazing and I can definitely say OCRemix started my path toward loving him. I use his song Birthright for entrance music at shows. I don't even know how to categorize his genre (feeling old, too many genres). Electronica rock? I understand the nitpick, though, OCR is definitely influencing everyone that listens. I'm sure it would influence me more if I weren't trapped under a rock. Oh yeah, worth mentioning is that I bought Zircon and Jillian's "Breathing You In" MP3 off Itunes a year back. That counts. I'm a fanboy, too.
  4. Technically not a newbie but I'm sort of coming back into the forum on a semi-regular basis after about a four year hiatus so I'll re-introduce myself. I'm Knight, a pro wrestler based out of the Quad Cities. Yeah, stupid and crazy, I know. Been listening for something like six or seven years total now. I remember CotMM was what got me first interested in sticking around and then I found what every metal head eventually finds: Goat. After that it was Game Over. Then it was every single remix on the site, genre I cared about or not. I found myself going from Slipknot to Shnabubula solo piano mixes. Funny how that works.
  5. I haven't posted here in four years or something...so hey, I guess. I had an interesting moment the other day. I have a bunch of burnt CD's with OCRemix material on them. I've listened to them a hundred times while on the road and put many of my friends through them, as well. I recently found a couple new bands while listening to Last.FM and one of them was called Delain, a European metal band with full orchestra. The genre is probably called symphonic metal or something. One of my friends was listening to them for the first time in my car, a song called "Frozen" and he stops and asks, "Is this video game music?" "No, bro, it's a band called Delain." That's when I realized it DID sound a hell of a lot like some of the stuff I've listened to on OCRemix. In fact, I'd venture a guess and say if it hadn't been for my listening to the material that's come out over the years on OCRemix, I may not have even liked Delain at all when I heard them. When I first heard stuff on here, I was still in an everything metal mode. No rap, no country, no wussy stuff. Listening to stuff on here, though, orchestra and electronica mixes of awesome games sure as hell opened up my mind as time went by. So I'm curious, did others have the same type of experience? What kind of bands are you listening to now that you weren't before because of OCRemix?
  6. I have to say, I nearly shit myself when I saw that CotMM was back on this mix. I'm pretty pumped up now. The mix is exactly what I wanted and expected, which is to say it's awesome.
  7. After listening to it several times, I have to say that I really enjoy this one. Definitely has a quartet under a street light feel to it, slightly flawed vocals and all. I think the word "charm" has been used several times but it's fitting, it definitely has charm.
  8. Consider me a fan of this one. I'm sure in the future there will be many times where I'll be falling asleep to this or be called any variation of a homosexual by my friends while listening to it in the car.
  9. Man...the things you find randomly skipping around those songs in your OCRemix folder, hoping you find that one gem. This was it today. I'm so glad I found it, this is an awesome remix, definitely brightened my mood and satiated my want for some Castlevania remixage that isn't driven by electric guitar.
  10. TO for the win here. This is a very dreamlike atmosphere, save for the random stabs of the instrument I'm assuming is the bell that sounds like the guitar referred to in the judge's panel. All part of the gimmick, though, it fits. Damn good vocals, too. They push this mix up a level.
  11. Hmm... This is a really tough call for me. Personally, I'm not digging Shonen's vocals. No offense to you man, you did a fine job and I didn't hear any problems with it in terms of talent but it's personal preference. Your voice merely rubs me the wrong way. It annoys the hell out of me, actually. In fact, I'm not really into Pixie on this one, either. Maybe it was the mic or something but I much preferred her work in Journey's End. Thank you for posting the instrumental, Zircon, I have to say that I prefer it over the vocal version this time. It's rare that this happens on OCR because I haven't had a problem with other vocal mixes other than Darangen's Falling Back but I guess it has to happen sometimes. Much appreciated and a great mix, peeps.
  12. I am totally digging this. This is Mario's evil friggin' twin doing what I imagine to be some emo painting right here and I love it.
  13. Hot damn, this is smooth as silk. Wicked likes. I have to agree with pretz, too, your violin playing rocks the party and has become one of the reasons I look forward to your mixes. Great job.
  14. I replay this over and over again. Such a fantastic song, so emotive. I'll be keeping this. It's MINE NOW.
  15. I agree with all of the above. The key change was jarring the first time but after listening to the song on repeat a few times, it didn't detract from the overall experience once I knew it was coming. If ten more disco mixes hit the site simultaneously I wouldn't complain one bit. MORE DISCO.
  16. This remixed rocks my freakin' balls off. Literally, my testicles were forcibly torn from between my legs and fell to the floor vibrating from a Shadow of the Ninja asskicking remix.
  17. I like this. Everything about this is good and does what it's supposed to, although the piano solo can't really follow the bitchin' violin. I don't know about anybody else but when the violin is playing, the music sounds like something you'd hear from the old SNES RPG Robotrek. I loved that game and bringing back feelings of that game only makes me like this mix more. Good job.
  18. I completely agree. When your skill level rises and you can get some good control over your voice, I would absolutely, positively want you to come back to this and rerecord your vocs. It deserves the attention.
  19. You're damn right I'm being picky. There's a lot of music out in the world and I can afford to be. I don't see the "harsh bashing" in my post that was mentioned, I said I loved the mix and it rocked my socks off but his vocals ruined it for me. Darangen, no offense was meant to you. There's no doubt in my mind that you can grow as a singer and eventually make a mix with lyrics that will blow me away completely but this isn't the one.
  20. This is a mix I would totally be rocking out on...but your vocals just suck. I don't want to say that because it's mean but I can't think of a nice way to put it. Whichever judge said your voice was beginnerish was right and it shows too much. Maybe next time you can do something to mask that with some effects or something. ANYTHING. I want to enjoy this mix but I can't because of your exposed voice that shouldn't be exposed.
  21. Niiiiice. I like this. It's so...jubilant. Jubilant is a good word. I definitely admire your talent on the piano, I wish I could play like that. I wish I could play, period. Anyway, the fact that this is so full of rainbow and sunshine energy makes you just want to huggle a physical embodiment of this remix. Or Blad himself. Huggles are in order.
  22. I never want to hear the word "weaksauce" used in a writeup again. I don't care if it was about Kenny G or not. This is wicked's decree. "Weaksauce" sucks. Anyway, I'm definitely digging this. I'd probably enjoy it a lot more if I weren't in the mood to turn on some Game Over/goat/Snappleman/something else heavy and kick something's ass but it's been so long since a track was posted ( ) I had to listen now. Great job.
  23. I doubt that. There's no person crazy enough to become the game. Earthbound is nuts. Who out there could Earthbound be made of? ...Earthbound is Jack Thompson's appendix. All hilarity aside, I can't really say I enjoyed this mix as everyone else on a musical level but I'll be damned if it didn't make me laugh hard.
  24. I have to say that my love for Shna's mixes is unendless. The music he creates makes love to my ears in the candlelight. While this isn't my favorite mix of his (I dig Pegasus Boots SO much and Anachronism holds a dear place in my heart) I definitely like it. It shows what an all-around musician he is. I'd love to hear Shna attempt something in genre that isn't what you'd expect. Like a rock piece. OOH! A collab with goat or maybe Ailsean! If you really wanted to rock my world, I'd love to see the return of CotMM and Shna collabing with him. Holy crap, that would be BUCKETS OF AWESOME.
