OCR01384 - Ninja Gaiden "Basilisk Run"

Recommended Posts

Man, I really like this Vurez fellow. All of his mixes thus far are fun and creative. I have to say, I like this one more than "Flurry", though. The use of an "Ennio Morricone-esque" style is apparent in both, but here it fits in with the groove a lot better and makes for some hawt western beat biaz. The instrumentation just rawks my socks off and I love the attention to panning out the various sounds. This is a well deserved OC Remix. I can't wait for more from this fellow.

Furthermore, djp, to address your earlier comment in a manner that is both mature and appropriate.

Very well done. The instruments are varied and they all compliment each other nicely. A good beat throughout keeps it moving. Great work, hope to hear more!

Yes! Finally a Ninja Gaiden remix, and a good one too!

It gets better every time I listen to it. Though I must say, at times the remix sounds more like dance music than a run...another purpose served!

Make more if you don't mind.

This is a really great piece. Deep spacey flutes, and a good bass. It's a kind of a song that you never really gets tired of, and it sounds VERY much like the Zelda Oot Geurdo theme sometimes, but in a good way, so I don't have any complains on this.

Good work Vurez, and keep'em coming!!!:D:D:D

This is awesome. I really like the original tune and this compliments it very nicely. The overall ambience is great, and I love how the song develops and really lets go in the end. Superb.

This puts me in mind of that awesome 'Lonely Shepherd' song from Kill Bill.

So cool, great work 8)

Oh yes, Zamfir's 'Lonely Shepherd' is a great song. That track came to my mind too while I was working on this.

Yeah, I enjoy Lonely Shepherd as well, especially the James Last-ish horn section... *grabs Zamfir CD* What do you know, Lonely Shepherd is written by James Last!

Anyway, am I the only one who hears Gerudo Valley in this track? There seems to be a striking similarity, at least to my ears...

I love this piece. The mixture of western and stab orchestral is great. It reminds me a lot of the 80's television theme songs, where it was more of a pop feel song, but then the orchestra comes blaring through as background later on. The ending makes me weak in the knees, and I'm always waiting for the wah-wah portion of the song as well.

OH MY GOSH! I love the source tune for this song! I never ever thought it would get remixed! THANK YOU!

The remix itself is also much, much more than I expected. Gotta love the guitar playing.

For real, this sounds like some RPG overworld theme. I ain't no ninja but, if I were, I wouldn't be gettin' my stealth on with this tune. I really can't dig it. Even some of the samples were pretty weak. The guitar is slick. The rest is hick. The drumming and violin at the end is redeeming but, not quite enough.

This is my favorite song from Ninja Gaiden. Please tell me that there is a guitar tab somewhere! I am dying to learn this and I can't quite get it by ear!

Sounds almost mexican sobraro type to me. I don't even realize what song was remixed on this one. Not bad, could be better.

Rather sad if you don't recognize the original in here. This is very far from a liberal arrangement.
