OCR01317 - Castlevania II "Cursed Bloodline"

Recommended Posts

Who is this Dennis fellow again? Oh, sum Vgmixdood.

Seriously, though, this is very damn good and continues to impress upon multiple listens.

I can't really nitpick. I like it. Looking forward to more Dennis like this.

Hail!

A blackish thrash approach is just what this theme needs! Very Haunted/The Crown-esque.

Only complaints: The snare is a little too round-sounding, and I think the tone change for the mellow part takes you out of the song a bit too much. Maybe you should have left the distortion the same, but flipped pickup switch back to the neck for that.

The riffing is robust throughout and a pleasure to listen to. Good work, man.

the composition is a little chincy(real word?) but overall this is some wicked stuff and a great concept. even if the execution is a wee bit off, its just real fun to listen to, good work, i look forward to more mixes like this one

As a metal fan, (no I dont mean bullshit slipknot etc.) I revel this...

Why must something that becomes popular becomes suddenly bullshit?

Thats the only regard I never liked about metal fans or frustrated musicians that don't do pop.

Yeah! Heavy stuff, I like a lot. Very nice playing, great recording. I don't dig the vocals, altough well done! It's just not my cup of tea.

Great first song on oc-remix.

Having a hard time liking this. Not enough melody for my tastes. The lyrics don't seem... uh... sung. At all. I guess that's the style... but I don't like it.

Yes! Something new and different for OC Remix! I've been waiting for a long time for some metal screaming on this site. This is exactly what I was hoping for and more.

I've got a few mix ideas in my head, but nothing to make it with. :( Oh well, maybe someday...

Excellent work here...for the most part. The 'minor' complaint the judges had regarding the vocals is not so 'minor'. The vocals are ridiculously quiet. Sure, metal puts more focus on the thrashing guitars and what have you, but I've NEVER heard a metal song where the vocals are this low. It just doesn't happen. Can't hardly tell he's there half the time. Sad thing is, it would've taken two seconds to fix it.

This mix came so close to being incredible, but this one little thing is holding it back.

*sigh*

I don't post much on mixes but I felt compelled to post on this one. I have never really been a fan of heavy metal but I grew up with it and I can appreciate it none the less and this is really good. I really would like to hear what thisguy has in store for next time.

This is extreme! Be prepared to face it or you'll be crushed by the huge walls of sound!

I love every second of it and I'm happy to see this kind of music in OCR. Make more!

That's an nice comment from the man who made "Against The Rest". :wink:

Nice work by Dennis. I'm not a big fan from crazy/metal/voices. But this work, beat the crazy concept. ^ ^

Damn, this is a real shock. Me feeling compelled to post twice in like a week. This is sick as hell. This place has really needed an ass kicking piece of metal. This will foot the bill nicely. I'm gonna be playing this a lot.

You've never listened to early Emperor have you? Their vocals are quietly in the back though still very raspy and shierky.

I downloaded this on VGMix and its very killer. Very reminiscint of At the Gates with a trace of Hypocrisy. It's good to see variety on the site.
