OCR01360 - Final Fantasy VI "Deadly Promises"

Recommended Posts

'tis good, however, and while I understand why you'd have to do this, I feel as if you kind of switch the mood that the theme's s'posed to give, maybe that's just me and my nostalgia. while I'm not knocking your music, I just feel that it's to upbeat for the tune, I prefer this particular theme to be more melodic and slow, maybe not the right word but only one I can think of.

for what you set out to do, though, I'd say you did pretty well give ya an 8 outta 10

The intro reminds me a LOT of "Call of Ktulu" by Metallica (before you say anything, YES, Metallica spelled it that way), which is good because I love that song. Overall a great mix.

Hmm, I'm pretty much repeating what others have already said, but the vocals need work. Other than that, it was a fairly solid mix. Good for a little change in Terra's Theme.

This is great. Like the pretzel said, thank you for finding a new way to do Terra. FF6 was a great game, so is the music and so is this. Weird thing, is that when I tried to listen to this on the site, there'd be holes, where it would just play nothing and start again. I just downloaded it and theres no problem now. Weird, anyone else have this happen? Probably just me >.>

Wow, my favourite tune from Final Fantasy VI has been done again. And I might add that it's an excellent remix. A completely new approach to the already many remixes of the song. I might like to add that the vocals do fit and this whole remix is almost at par with Death On The Snowfield.

Love the use of guitars throughout the whole song, my only complaint is the last part (which is almost unnoticable) but the guitar felt a bit flat. Otherwise its awesome! Definitely recommended!

I have to say, I was a little worried at first, not having heard anything by this remixer, and also having it be a Terra remix. But I have to say that I found it to be pleasantly refreshing. The whole song was so differant from any Terra mixes I've heard that I didn't feel like I was listening to the same song....again.

Anyways, I have to say that this was quite well done. 10 out of 10, for sure.

Wow, this is a really great remix. The lovely tune of Terra kicks in at 1:23, and it's just awesome. But is it better than Ailsean's "Terra in Black"? In my opinion, not quite, but very close.

This is real heavy dude. The drums, cymbals, and, of course, the electric guitar, it´s just...wow.

I mean........nah I´m speechless. This really just

kicks ass. Truly worth a download.

Darangen, you rock. 8)

Hmmmm.... a quality tune: decent recording, composition and playthrough. It certainly does rock. Although a fresh perspective on a classic, I think it misses the emotion of the original. Needs more vocal.

Okay, seriously a a great tune. When you kicked in some harmonizing vocals, that was great, but it was like a tease. Once i heard a little bit, I wanted more. It would be great if someone wrote some rock lyrics to this tune also. Even though they're both great comps, this one is much closer to the original theme of Terra than Ailsean's 'Terra In Black'. That's what put this over the top for me. Great song.

Great intro! Reminds me of Stained and I like it. It then changes to more of a "Creed" picking style. I like that too! The ethereal voices sound great; adds a layer of texture that really hasn't been in your previous mixes. Guitar work is tighter too. Kick drum is thumpin' nicely in this too!! Great improvement! Hi-hats sound a little mechanical during the fast parts, but it's not too bad. Drum programming, on the whole, is very well done. Original without the feeling of looping! There are some hints of the Allman Brothers harmonizing guitar leads in there. The acoustic breakdown is a great touch. The playing is spot on. A fantastic improvement! Cant wait to hear the others!

This is definitely everything I've come to know and love about Darangen's mixes. The guitar work, arrangement, and overall track is sheer amazing :razz:

I love the intro so much; it's freaking awesome. I'll also admit that when the source comes, it's feels a little strange. I really like how the source is arranged, but it's how prominently Terra's theme is displayed in this track. I've always imagined it to be more dispersed and interspersed throughout the track instead of being transparently laid bare on top. Not to say that that's a bad thing, it's just something I'm not used to nor was expecting. This is and always will be a really cool track.

The extended intro was really nice, and backing vocals were a very good touch. It played pretty liberally with the source, but when all the elements came together at once for the final minute, it was really worth it. The acoustic guitar outro was also very classy and nice.
