OCR03231 - Donkey Kong Country "Battle Aboard the Galleon"

Recommended Posts

This is a Business Remix. It comes in on time, fulfills what it needs to do and doesn't over stay its welcome. This song was written to be remixed as a proper metal track, for future generations, and this Remix fulfills that prophecy quite well. Need I say more?...Yes. I need say one more thing...I've come to love that jaunty little tune that precedes this in game, no love for it? It's doesn't matter, this is some good metal and metal does what metal wants....deal with it  B)

Definitely short but sweet. I think this is the shortest posted remix in recent years that I've seen. It's solid stuff; I just wish there was more.

How in the nine circles of Hell did I miss this? My fav source from DKC + hot damn metal? Hell yeah! Quite short remix, definitively heavier than SnappleMan's classic arrangement. The performance is excellent, the production is very tight too. The fade-out is a little disappointing considering how great the remix sounded. Post more, man! \m/

This sounds like an arrangement that would appear in a Smash Bros game. It’s so energetic and rocking. It’s too bad that this track is so short. But again, I definitely get a Smash Bros. vibe out of this. So I can forgive the length (as well as the fade out ending).

Said it a few times now but again thank you so much for putting this composition through!

It's actually really nice to hear people saying it's too short! Usually I just assume that people will have really short attention spans, and because no one really knows me as a musician, I feel the need to cram in as much as possible into a short space of time. To a fault really haha.

And the notes about the production are very fair, I definitely struggle with production.

But this is so sick and I'm so happy people enjoy it! This has definitely given me a kick up the backside to start creating more content and to sort out my music accounts.

Watch this space, I'm feeling a Binding of Isaac cover next :D

Cheers!

This is one of those ReMixes that I consider "HD" versions of themes, where it takes what I loved about a source theme as a kid and amplifies it, helping me remember what I loved about them in the first place. This mix accomplishes that by getting straight to the point with some rock that was very heavy on the guitars, as a good battle theme should be. Yeah, I wasn't crazy over the fade out, and the short length calls for a case of replay button abuse, but those two things aside, I gotta say I enjoyed the soloing right before the end also. This was a very well arranged ReMix managed to fit a hell of a lot into the length it had, which is great. An honor for K. Rool indeed.
