OCR02178 - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV 'Enter the Shredder'

Recommended Posts

I'm loving every song on HvV with the red hot intensity of 1,000 suns, but just wanted to pipe in, and say that the lack of high frequencies in this makes me sad. Is there a lowpass on there or what? Great song though! Yeah, the electronic bit is a little crazy. ;-)

This song actually appears in both TMNT4 and TMNT3, I used the TMNT 3 version as my reference, and also the "sfx breakdown" section uses samples I ripped from TMNT 3. I probably would have classified it under 3, but 4 isn't wrong. :D Thanks guys

Enter the Shredder... hell yeah. So many memories with this one, also from a franchise that has received seriously small amounts of love on the site. And a truly difficult piece to rip to "shreds" on the guitar, so awesome job dude. Would love to hear this one live. :)

Ridiculous track! Big, thick, fluid, crunchy guitar tones, crunchy-as-hell drums, a fast, driving rhythm and a badass guitar solo. So good. Love the change in the middle, too.

Awesome, until the CD skipping effect. :P I dunno what DC was trying to accomplish there, but it doesn't work for me, kinda ruins the song.

Okay, the first time I heard this piece, I practically creamed my pants.

Danimal really pushed it on this piece. I'm glad that bLiNd pushed to do a half electronic/half metal piece because, for me, Dan really nails it in the second half of the song.

Really hope to see more of this type of experimentation from him in the future!

Fantastically entertaining! I could've done without the cd skipping at the end, but it does lend to the hardcore charm of the song. Well done!

I usually don't like lyrics, but I'm loving the 'ENTER THE SHREDDER' part. Don't ask me why.

And don't be discouraged, I liked the CD effect towards the end. The speed up, I mean. Not so much the part before that, but experimentation is always good.

I may be in the minority, but the CD skipping actually put a smile on my face. For a split second, it even tricked me into stopping what I was doing and checking what was wrong with the "disc"... :-)

I'm not often a fan of the genre but I thought this was really great. There's a lot of creativity and adventurousness on display that you don't often see in arrangements like this. The section at 1:35 is pretty out of character, in a really good way. I love how the glitchy percussion continues when it goes back to a more normal guitar-driven tone at around 2:00. The mix is a little random overall, maybe, but I've been guilty of that many times before so I can't complain. I thought the CD skipping was also a pretty awesome end.

When I first listened to this, I wasn't a fan of the CD skipping, but the more and more I listen to this, the less it bothers me. I think the glitching went on a bit too long, but that's a minor complaint when the rest of the track is awesome. I'm actually glad that this wasn't a clear cut guitar only ReMix and that the electronic bits were done so well. The SFX blended in spectacularly and the Shredder's laugh at the end was a great way to finish it. Good ReMix by a Bad Dude.

I accidentally started playing this at almost exactly the same time as Trenches - Burning Vigil. Didn't notice at first since this was so much louder.

The sum was kind of weird, but they synch up quite well. I realized there had to be something strange going on around 1:00 when the Burning Vigil tune comes in audibly.

Didn't think it would go well together, but then you get the middle part with the repeated SFX, and that actually kind of meshes well with it, though the Burning Vigil track is louder at that part.

But by 2:30 it's kind of fallen apart. It kind of works for a moment during the stutter part at the end.

Oh well, just a funny observation.

On the track on its own: good, though it's not quite up to Sixto's 'The Shredder'. And, about the scratch part? Umm. Yeah. I'm not sure what to make of that, even listening to this track on its own. That, and the female voice telling me to enter the Shredder. Just gives me a ???
