OCR01312 - Stormlord "Seneca's Marble Pack Edit"

Recommended Posts

Sounds like something I'd hear off of an anime ending! I love playing this over and over even though it just got posted. Kudos! Satisfies me just enough to where it doesn't bore me. :) Especially around 1:40. I love that part.

Exactly. Reminds me of something that might fit well into Gundam Seed.

Great stuff. Loving it. Quality.

This is an instant classic. Like Salzman's "Pillar of Salt" proved, the lyrics of the vocals don't have to be understood (for most of us, anyway) to be loved. I was pretty dissapointed that the OCR judging panel rejected the Italian remix of FF6's opera theme known as "Amor Mio, Caro Bene," but this one just makes up for it tenfold.

10/10 One of the best songs you'll ever download on this site

Stunning, simply stunning. We need more of this! I can't emphasise how much I like this song, it sounds like something straight from the credits of an anime film...ok ok, I'll fourth that. :wink:

I started listening to this , not havgin read any of Djpretzels input on the song. Needless to say the italian lyics surprised me.

But not as much as the quality of the song. This is amazing work. Everything fits perfectly together. Just beautiful work.

And My compliments to N-Joy's wife on her incredible voice.

Stormlord - which is the best game ever made in the history of everything ever - should feel lucky to have this remix. In fact, I bet more people have responded to this thread than have ever played Stormlord.

This is really neet, but it could have been a LOT better. Some points:

1. More dynamics. It's about the same level of intensity throughout. I was expecting some sort of beefy climax but I got nothing.

2. You really should have done another take on the vocals. Toward the end the autotuning gets REALLY really apparent. 2:38 is a good example.

3. A breakdown section would have been nice, a break in the middle of the song for synthwork/percussion would have been awesome.

The instrumentation is neet, the effects you used were neet but like, they left me expecting a big climax.

Guitar solo at the end is cool, everything is pretty well mixed, so if you take those three tips, you'd have a hardcore winner.

I hate most lovey-wuvie songs (they sicken me), but this one was pretty neat, I guess.

Also, I agree with the above. The guy makes awesome mixes, so he must know what he's talking about.

I've been listening to the mixes here for something like 2 years now, and in my history of forums use, I've only really commented on the songs that I thought were outrageously awesome.

Well, there you go. This mix is outrageously awesome:

The lyrics are great, wasn't expecting Italian at ALL from the context of the song title, etc, but it was like uncovering gold without even meaning to.

Simona's voice is excellent.

N-Joy did a great job on his cover of the music (although being only a listener and not a mixer myself, I can't tell if he's made mistakes or not).

Going on only the impression this song's left on me, I'm going to say this is the most emotionally stirring song I've heard on OCremix. Everything else has been "this sounds great" or "this is awesome", but the singing makes this feel so much more complete than pure instrumentation or synths would have been able to accomplish.

Good stuff.
