  1. Another piece I did for DoD, but unlike the last one (which was a mostly straightforward cover), this one is a mashup of 2 songs from the OST and has a much more original arrangement. Haven't submitted yet, but I think I may sometime soon. Let me know if there's some mix tweaks or anything else that could improve it before I do! Originals: Now, smashed and banged (smanged!) together and turnt to 11:
  2. A while ago, I self-published my debut album, ORACLE. I don't think I ever shared it on here, so here's a link to one of the tracks, 'Exordium': https://bjoernkmusic.bandcamp.com/track/exordium-2 Genre-wise, this is a modern, guitar-centric metal album, with particular focus on riffs and atmosphere rather than wild leads and crazy technique. Think of Metallica's instrumental songs but with a djent-y soundscape and a pinch of prog. I'm also heavily (ha! pun!) influenced by other metal musicians from the YouTube space, such as Keith Merrow (Merrow, Conquering Dystopia, Alluvial) or Ola Englund (Feared, The Haunted). 'Exordium' is the single of the album, and I think it's a good way to start into it. It's fairly straight forward, in-you-face metal. The album gets a bit more progressive than that on tracks like Of Guilt and Catharsis. If you feel drawn to acts like Meshuggah or Periphery / Haunted Shores, you might want to give these a go as well. This whole project was a one-nerd-effort, from conception to final mixdown. Except for mastering, for which I was lucky enough to get Ermin Hamidovic from Systematic Productions (Architects, Periphery, Devin Townsend) on board. Conceptually, the album tackles themes of insecurity and depression, but also of struggle and overcoming. The album as a whole looks at the process of working through a life-altering event, with all its ups and downs. The individual tracks dig into the different stages of this process, as well as the emotions attached to that. To give you an idea, 'Premonitions' is informed by the looming feeling of something not being right that you sometimes get way before you consciously notice any actual problems / changes, while 'Exordium' tries to capture the almost manic determination that sometimes grabs a hold of ya when you realize the inevitability of a big event that is heading your way. But enough rambling, at the end of the day, I'd be much more interested to hear what YOU hear in the album. Of course, any and all feedback regarding songwriting, mixing etc. would be much appreciated - while this is my first foray into the scene, I'm not planning to leave it at that and there's so much to do and to improve I hope you give Exordium---and maybe even the entire album---a spin. The link above leads to Bandcamp, but it's up on all major streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube) as well. Cheers!
  3. Sharing my latest metal remix of a track called "We've Got Hostiles" (link) from the original 2012 Black Mesa soundtrack. After the Black Mesa devs recently announced that the Xen Beta would go live soon (which it did a couple of days ago) I was super exited and wanted to celebrate this with a remix. When I planned it out, I unfortunately was not aware that the release of the dedicated (and absolutely gorgeous) soundtrack for Xen by Joel Nielsen was also immenent. Therefore, I picked a song from the original 2012 soundtrack. Wanted to share this here because I appreciate the OCR community a lot. Had some good discussions and feedback here in my early remixing days (aka. a couple of years back). But, to be honest with you, I'm not planning on submitting this one. Two reasons for this: Firstly, the remix contains a couple of voice lines from Half-Life 2, and this kind of stuff is always an issue from a copyright standpoint. Secondly, the last couple of remixes I submitted seem to have vanished into the nether, without any feedback / judge decision whatsoever. Totally understandable, from the "active judges" thread it is obvious that you are understaffed at the moment and while probably being flooded with submission more than ever. Anyways, enough rambling. Hope some of you stumble upon this thread and give this remix a listen. If you do, definitely let me know what you think! Imma go back to pondering if making a remix of "Shadows of Death" from the Xen soundtrack might be low-hanging fruit or not at this point.
  4. In what seems to be a misunderstanding of the usual OCR process, I already e-mailed this in (derp). But let's pretend I didn't! This is a somewhat doomy/sludgy metal take on this tune. I'm pretty happy with it all in all. Feel free to feedback away! Original: My hot take on it:
  5. A remix I made for the Pixel Mixers CV Tribute Album. Used the melody from CV2 Dracula's Castle theme and made a song. Complete with original lyrics!
  6. Hiya! Another Temple theme cover!? Well, yes I made a cover of this like ten years ago and shared it to ScrewAttack g1 submission thing or whatever. It sucked hard, but it was the best I could do at the time. So when I started getting serious about the video game remixing/covering (btw, which is it!?) I wanted to do this again to show myself how I have improved... and I have, if I say it so myself. Got a bit side tracked on the end riffing, but I thought it needed some heavy dropped D twanging release! Have a lovely day y'all! Original tune:
  7. Here's a pretty straightforward metal cover of Undertale's MEGALOVANIA (as if there weren't enough of those). I did one years ago but this one came out much, much better, though admittedly I did rush it as I recorded most of it in a day. I really like the mixing/mastering on this one and any feedback on that aspect is appreciated. SoundCloud:
  8. Hello! Made this for Mega Man competition. Kinda fun and happy metal What do you think? Thanks. Source Fire man Source Cut man
  9. Hello! Another attempt to be like one of my favorite bands PAIN Not sure I've reach anywhere close. What do you think? Remix: Source:
  10. Hello. Made it long ago. What do you think? Source EDIT: Fixed source link. Sorry.
  11. Hello! Long time ago I wanted to make "virtual band" in League of Legends universe, from Noxus. With Katarina's vocal, Darius and Thalon with guitars, Sion on Bass gtr, Draaaven as a drummer and Urgot(before rework) at synths. I made this track and even lyrics(inspired by Rammstein). But than, Riot's made Pentakill.. So my idea died. Pentakill is great, so I don't complane. enjoy if you can xD
  12. Probably the best remix I've made in terms of production quality. Super groovy theme, and I do love a bit of Balrog Got a load more SF2 themes on my youtube if anyone enjoys this and is interested. Thanks
  13. Hi there! I'm Paul. I'm new to this website so I'm not 100% how it works but, I've seen some really awesome stuff though and I'm glad to be a part of this community! I've just started my own journey of creating metal versions of classic retro (and maybe some modern) video game music. I've started with a very well known theme that's probably been done to death, but I'd like to think I put my own spin on it. A Swedish melodic metal twist perhaps? Anyway... here it is! Hope you all like it! Peace!
  14. Hello, I wanted to share two recent tunes here. the first one is an ambiant composition with female choir, 12 chord guitar, flutes, delays, textures and drums that conveys advanture and danger. The second one is a Metal track  with guitar solos, bass fills with wah wah pedal and a heavy and tight drum.  Hope you guys enjoy it!
  15. Updated Track: OLD POST BELOW Redoing this thread to focus only on one song, original post is in the quote below, I will come back to those tracks when I feel like it. OLD Choke Point Sweep (July/18/2018) F# 145BPM Sharing my latest. Here is a track I made with no goal in mind. Can't quite place it or relate it with anything but it has a lot of lead synth. I don't know where else to share my work for feedback so I am leaving it up to you. its only 3:10 so its short. I'm still fiddling with the equalizer to find the best tones and I think I may be having ear fatigue.
  16. Hello again. It's been quite a while since I first posted here, but I've decided to link some of my newer original music. Although I have also made some electronic and chiptune tracks, I have mainly still been writing many short "djent-y" themes, a few of which I will link below. My previous thread is obsolete as the tracks that used to be linked there were WIP versions of very old tracks that I've since uploaded to SoundCloud. Rather than re-post my oldest tracks here, I'm instead sharing some of my most recent music. The mixing quality and compression varies a lot amongst the short metal tracks, as I am still experimenting and learning how to make very heavy music like this sound better (e.g., heavy and aggressive but without being too clean, harsh, or messy). From 5 months ago: For this I tried to make something extremely "evil" and foreboding. Basically a wall of distortion with ominous choirs. From 6 months ago: Inspired by games such as DOOM. Same thing as above: Wall of distortion. No choirs or synths, though. I don't really like the drum samples I used... Within the past week: Use of dissonant, distorted chords. I think the drums in this are better than the drums I used in older stuff. This one has more melodic, slightly less distorted riffs. Making extremely down-tuned bass sound good is the main problem here for me. Thanks for listening! I am always finding ways to improve, but I enjoy making these themes.
  17. Hey all, I just finished my third cover from the Final Fantasy series - "Fighting" I've also covered: "Still More Fighting" from FF7 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odkxjXxugRY "Terra" from FF6 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qgc3Fm-EjY
  18. Hey all. Back in 2011 I made a cover of the Skyrim Main Theme, which went viral (over 4 5 million views!) I recently made an extended and remastered version. Check it out!
  19. YES ITS BEEN DONE A MILLION TIMES BUT... I wanted to have a go. Also Kenichi Matsubara is a beast.
  20. A metal remix of Death Adder from Golden Axe on the Sega Megadrive. One of my favourites from this soundtrack, couldn't resist going epic dark metal on it. Original track is below the remix, enjoy! (hopefully...) I am also looking for remix collabs and other music projects, if anyone is like-minded please message me. Original Track
  21. Hiya! I added a cover of a Castlevania-song here, so I might as well plug my main band Evil Bastards From Hell. We play 80's and glam inspired Rock Metal but with a bit more of heaviness/dirt. As our motto says, "Sick Riffs, Dirty Lyrics & Rocking Metal" If you like Mötley Crüe & Ratt, but with a bit of Judas Priest thrown into the it then it's up your alley! Here's our new EP: Oh, btw I play the guitar and sing backing vocals
