OCR01562 - Chaos Legion "The Souls of Chaos"

Recommended Posts

I own this soundtrack. Awesome, awesome music, although I can definitely see why there haven't been more remixes of it, from both an obscurity and accessibility viewpoint. Definitely worth checking out.

In order to make this post contain more content than just soundtrack pimpage, this remix is pretty sweet too. That might be because I like the sources so much, though, but groove bias, c'mon.

First of all, major props for Chaos Legion. Second, excellent mix of "Way To Nowhere" and "Feel No Fear"! I don't think its has quite the same feel as the soundtrack, but then it wouldn't be a remix would it? Great job!

Awesome stuff Roe. It does what every high energy Electronic mix should do... make you wanna friggin kill vampires all hardcore violent like. Which this accomplishes in spades. The strings really give it a good Rob Dougan-ish feel.

Ummm hmmmm let me find just the right word to describe this...

MEGALOMANIACALLY SEXALICIOUS IN A SHOE SERVED WITH A SIDE OF WHOOP-ASS!!!!

Ok, so that took more than 1 word, but F*ck man, I've never even played the game and it hit just the right chord :D

Nice, powerful high-energy song. As pointed out above, this is the kind of music you want to listen to when it get's all violent and ugly in a video game (and seriously, don't we all want it to get violent and ugly sometimes?).

This track (the intro especially) gives me a raging boner. The sort that makes me want to take on the world and crush it like a paper cup.

And then sodomise what's left.

This. Is. EPIC.

At 0:12, I think the transition from the intro to the mix itself seemed a little too "On the Fence". I thought it needed to either be much more suttle, or a lot less suttle.

I loved the 1:09-1:30, absolutely brilliant.

Transfer at 1:49, same problem as the transfer at 0:12, except in reverse.

Personally I think you should make both transfers less suttle, perhaps prepare the transfer a little earlier, and have it last a bit longer.

Hard hitting stuff with some good chord changes, and some slick synth riffage, this is a really nice mix; both suspenseful and dramatic, but driving and aggressive.

The kick seemed a little high pitched, but it was punchy and solid, so it works for me. Otherwise this features some nice transitions, and a great string backing.

I especially liked the breakdown section, great buildup there leading to a tasteful synth solo. A very solid mix, though the ending is just a bit abrupt.

This song is so perfect for OCR. It takes an excellent game song, spins it in a markedly different (and dare I say better?) direction that nonetheless would fit perfectly into the original soundtrack, and does so with skill and panache.

Nice big beat take on the source. Pretty overcompressed, but I know you've gotten much better these days overall. That fakey guitar though. 0.o Not bad, not great. I do look forward to your future stuff!
