Recommended Posts

i love this mix.. so meticulously well-crafted, intense and downright haunting, yet infectious. and just fucking brutal. the texture drop at 1:59 is so epic. amazing track. :D

Love Mazedude's music, he is an expert at getting both the macro and the micro right. This arrangement is like an auditory nightmare, and those carnival blasts of dissonance are genius, but then when you look at the programming... man, that's intricate. Awesome stuff.

I remember freaking out after hearing Chris' first WIP of this.

Totally and utter insanity, which Chris somehow wrangles into a palpable, veritable song! Awesome stuff as usual!

I heard Chris's WIP before I even got started. Originally, I thought I would try to incorporate some DnB into my own mix along with other elements from the MoBrain track. I never told him this, but after hearing the first WIP I was like... Dayum, I can't compete with that :lol:

So I ended up just doing pretty much the total opposite which was like straight up orchestra + Baywatch anthem rock.

Anyway, this track continues to rock my socks off.

This is exactly why I check OverClocked... I haven't been so struck by a remix before since the Aphrodite Oceanus remix for secret of mana. It's incredibly potent drum and bass, very precise electronica - and as others have stated, quite haunting. Fantastic work.

This remix has a very cool and creepy atmosphere. The pads had something 'evil' to the track, but heh, that's a BAD DUDE track. Also, lol @ Vincent Price/Thriller laugh, totally random but awesome.

Good job, keep on doing great stuff man!

Chris is the most beautiful insane I have ever listened to. I was blown away after interviewing him once for my site, but he has exceeded expectations with this remix. The inclusion of Samus' theme just before the 2:00 mark was priceless. Then, to have it ripped apart and mocked by Vincent Price — it was masterful.

If I was wearing a hat, I would tip it to you, sir.

Dear god, this is great. I don't remember ever feeling so legitimately afraid listening to a song. o_o

Really good mix, definitely my favorite on the Heroes vs. Villains album.

Now this is a villain theme! Dark DnB with pure evil mechanical sounding arrangement, and I'm so there. That shot at Samus with Vincent Price laughing is classic. I have to admit, Mazedude always seems to nail it right on the head when you need to add a little chaos to the mix. Well done.

I'm freaking terrified while listening to this. Yet I come back to it occasionally. Only a master can make a song actually scary and yet.. intriguing :D It's like a haunted house you want to visit at night, just for the chills.

Djp's phrase about Chris' mixes is so damn true. So... I've heard a lot of DnB, but this track is something else. I really like how the beat dominates over the main melody. I also like all the timesig changes throughout the track - it feels totally like a wild, scary adventure... with an anthemic break :lol: Love it!

That 0:47 drum loop is something else... the fakeout was cool. I think this might be the dirtiest remix I've ever heard; 2:50 onwards is just ridiculous. The surprisingly calm outro only adds to the mystique. Insane remix, awesome stuff.
