Now with less snare! I kind of understand what Larry wants me to do with the transition between the two themes, however I feel that something fast and not pace-breaking would be more loyal to the original idea I had for this remix back in 2012. I sure hope this new rendition doesn't tick anyone off too much!

The snare has certainly been decreased in volume, which fixes the biggest problem I had. It sounds like it still plays the same way most of the time, except maybe on fills, but it's way less noticeable now. Yeah, great work here.

The lead starts losing me a bit once you go into Metal Man's theme, but it's not too much of a dealbreaker. Performances are killer and it's a great arrangement. Something about the soundscape reminds me of good Japanese doujin rock.

Great stuff.

That snare still sounds really woody and too upfront to me, I still think it has too much in the mids. It's like the snare has a pitch and I really shouldn't be so aware of the pitch of a snare. It also seems to have too long of a tail. Honestly I just don't find this to be a good snare sample. But at least it is quieter. Too good an arrangement to hold back on just the snare anymore. Something to be aware of on future productions, though.

Good energy here for the track. Sounded like there was mid/low-mids scooped out of a lot of the instruments, so there's some room to fill things out a bit more IMO.

Snare gets a bit repetative IMO, but not terribly so. Good guitar performances. The various guitar effects and transition parts were a great addition and make the track a ton more interesting.

Felt like the synth lead at 1:36 was too buzzy and static sounding (not enough variation in the timbre of the sound). Doubling the guitar lead with the synth helped support it much better, though.

Good stuff there. There is room for improvement on the production side (all minor issues in my book), but overall nice track.

Sorry for not voting on it to help close it out. The balance and tone of everything was substantially improved, and even the really weak transition from before was redone to NOT break the flow of the piece. There were still some minor issues like the drum shots sounding too similar/machine-gun-ish in intensity for some periods of time, but the sum total of the changes definitely got this where it needed to be. Major props on your persistence, Anthony! That kind of determination is what will make you a cut above the rest.
