OCR02402 - Mega Man X8 'Winged Reploid (Revelation)'

Recommended Posts

This is what MegaMan X music is supposed sound like. I'll be honest I stopped playing MMX at 6, but listening to this has made me want to go and finish the series.

I love it.

The same shit as always. Cheap sounding guitars with a bunch of synths thrown in. Typical to Sixto.

Just kidding. I really love all the stuff he puts in. Great track!

Sixto did a stellar job on this overlooked source. As tough as the game can be, X8 had some solid music and this source is a definite bright spot. Sixto took it and imbued a sense of ascension worthy of the final boss fight of the game.

There is some overcompression present in this version - I personally liked the more crisp versions I heard earlier, but that was Sixto's decision ultimately and I try to respect artist choice. The big guitars and the driving pace does a great job setting the tone for mayhem, and the drawn out notes help cement the otherworldly battle image.

Easily one of Sixto's best in my eyes, and an appropriate way to climax Maverick Rising with.

Sixto can do no wrong when it comes to shredding it up with some heavy guitars and great sounding drums. Now this is a final battle theme if I've ever heard one! Great slowdown and amazing work overall.
