This was a pretty hard source to tackle for many people - we went through two people beforehand who had too much trouble with it before soliciting Tony's help, and he did a damn good job considering the source material.

Gotta love headbanging to the track though, solid aggressive metal. :)

Really? Two people tried and failed at this track? I'm surprised, it's a really cool track, and much more complex arrangements have been tackled in the past. Ah well, it's hard to go wrong with screaming electric guitars, and they are employed to great effect here.

Well, not really screaming at all times, but this is still rocking, and good! It feels a bit formulatic, as in "Do a cover arrangement of the theme as your backbone, use the key melodic hooks, and then do most of your expansion via solo" but hey, the system works, right? Really, my only gripe is that - I don't get a feel that this is the work of... Yeah. Sorry dude, I totally forgot your name, because I didn't listen to this and think "Whoa, that was pretty damn cool! Good job [subject name here]!"

So yeah, this is good but not earth shaking. Maybe that is the problem that Bahamut was referencing - it was hard to set the world ablaze when arranging this track.

You know, I have never heard of Dream Theater before I heard this ReMix. And now after hearing about the comparisons and checking it out, I love it. Proof that video game music can lead you to more music to enjoy in the wildest ways. I do hear the influence and this has quickly become one of my favorite ReMixes from the album. The sweet guitar rhythms and the driven, almost frantic pacing really reminds me of that level. And thumbs up for the creative name. :smile: Really, Prince of Darkness really delivered on this one, so thumbs up on a truly incredible mix.
