OCR03250 - Super Castlevania IV "Dark Cellar"

Recommended Posts

Those toms can get anyone excited. :twisted: That aside, I couldn't tell where this was going, at least until 0:47 when the rhythm guitar brought things into a bit more focus. The solo at 1:44 was pretty well-written, though I wish it was louder to again, bring more focus into the arrangement. The guitars could use some more meaty low end. I do like the live band feel of this, though, since it brings a spontaneity to what's going on here.

Takes a bit to get going, but when it get's there, it's fantastic! The only complaints I have is that the flute seems to be off a bit throughout the piece, and the guitars could use some better mixing. Still high-powered and fun overall!

I second everything Coaltergeist said. I do want to add that the cross-pan solo mentioned in the profile was pretty good. I’d still call this a fun track, but some of the levels seem a little uneven for me to fully appreciate this track.

I like that this track uses it's time to explore it's musical possibilities and bring in a lot of ideas like a cycle. Some of those I ideas, like the bells near the end, were sweet and I would have enjoyed being used more. I was afraid at the end with the volume lowered that it was going to be a fade out ending, which I normally don't mind but I don't think would have worked as well for this mix, so I'm glad it had a more definitive ending note, though I wish it was louder and/or longer to punctuate it. Minor production nitpicks aside, I enjoyed this a lot and seems like a very strong mix from a good group. Not bad, guys!
