OCR01769 - Shadow Hearts: Covenant "The Result Is Always Death"

Recommended Posts

I saw "Another Soundscape" and came in expecting an awesome, somewhat quirky, primarily electronic mix with awesome synths and effects.

Damn I'm good.

Synths, as expected, are sweet. I especially love the bass.

Piano is beautiful.

The rainstick is an especially brilliant touch.

An AnSo mix without a Rhodes solo?! Say it ain't so! Your drug is a heartbreaker.

Actually part of why this is awesome is because it deviates greatly from the tried and true AnSo Formula. (take funky drums, bassline, synths. add solos liberally. sprinkle the occasional Wacky Zany Instrument. stir, bake, submit.) Not that I don't like this formula, it's just good to see AnSo branching out.

Nice work.

(also: bass = sexy)

Best thing about this song is the title. I mean, the song is well put-together, has a very unique, lurching beat, and some intriguing delay that I only caught towards the end - but c'mon. That title.

I think the one thing that bothers me is the...sound...for lack of better words, that I keep hearing constantly in the more industrial section. It absolutely fits the track, but it really grates me after a while.

Aside from that, great mix, as per Anso's usual. Nice deviation from his norm, but I was able to get into it reguardless, and it was quite enjoyable. Killer bassline.

A terrific, terrific track. Eerie and atmospheric piano lines and subtle strings above industrial, noisy percussion and a dirrrrrrty, murrrrrrrmuring, brrrrrrrilliant bassline. Jättebra!

I really like Another Soundscape's music. I heard this for a few seconds and said, "Uh huh... I dig it. It goes on my playlist."

This is tight and good.

Really good job with the drums.

The Piano does alot affection in this song.

Really great to do octaves on the melody.

The answering with the glockenspiel was great too, moves the track forward.

Im not at all familiar with the source, but it sounds great.

Gonna check it out.

Great job mate :)

Who the hell do you think you are? If you continue bringing this much awesome to the table, you're gonna crash and burn one day. I mean, who can get away with a friggin' rainstick backing up their synth lead? You, evidently. This is probably my favorite mix from you thus far, better than any of the other 245. Big FAT bassline, and I love the synth lead. The whole mix has a slightly arabesque /middle eastern vibe to it that I'm totally down with. And the rainstick. If only for the rainstick you get mad props.

Markedly different from what AnSo usually delivers, but great nonetheless. Very intriguing percussion and drumwork.

Hope you'll tackle even more different styles in the future, AnSo.

You can expect some minimal techno, serious left-field electronica and more industrial with ethno vibes on a front-page near you soon enough :)

Love the skittering on this; really fits the mood and matches well with the moody bass and serene piano. Great choices on the sounds, and and flow was pretty good. This one is all about the vibe, and as such works wonderfully. I did prefer the sections that featured the mysterious piano melody, and really liked the bell's response on the second time through.

Awesomely evil and sludgey bass sound. It's like you grabbed it straight from CotMM. Double thumbs up. :-)

Oh God, this track just oozes sex out of every orifice. AnSo, your a bloody genius, mate. :smile:

Love the mood that everything sets in this. The skitter sounds completely wicked, piano's nice and light... but the bass, man, the bass. I don't know where you pulled that from and I don't care, that's seriously one of most mean and badass I've heard in a long time.

:razz: I just really, really dig this.

I love the juxtaposition of light upper sounds verses the deep dark industrial going on in the forefront. It's very pretty, string chords in the background a nice touch.

Amazing piece :)
