ansgaros (Anssi Jääskeläinen) debuted on OCR back in 2012 with an epic MMX3 ReMix that was featured on Maverick Rising - good way to start the show :) Albums often bring in some new faces, but sometimes we don't see individual follow-up submissions, which makes Larry Oji cry. It's true. This (happily) isn't one of those times, though, as the artist sends in a sweet sophomore mixpost in the form of a high-octane, briskly-paced metal arrangement of Ys III (NES) - Anssi writes:
"My entry for Dwelling of Duels MAGFest month. Instead of my usual style of medleys, I wanted to make something shorter, simpler, and definitely something that wasn't a medley. This is one song (out of a hundred, at least) that I've wanted to do for a long time now. Originally, I thought this would be a calmer song throughout, like how it starts out, but I just couldn't help myself and ended up including blast beats and all that sweet stuff. And it works."
"easy DP, great arrangement of the source, really solid metal production, and superclean playing. A++ would DP again!"
That's DP for "Direct Post," lest you misintepret Mr. Luers' words. No argument from me: great energy, momentum, & execution all around, and it's great to see the Ys series get more love & ansgaros return with a second ReMix!

Oooh, those drums have quite the kick to them and that is something you really want for a metal track like this one, so I'm liking that. The switch in melody direction near the end is a great way to keep things heavy without sacrificing the pace of the ReMix. Personally, I would have let the whole mix go a little longer after the solo before the end, but honestly, I couldn't really nitpick anything out of this one because I really dig it throughout. Also on a personal taste side, really love the name of the mix. Something about the imagery of the title still gets a thumbs up from me. Not bad.

This is an amazing blend of rock work with synth work. And I absolutely love the percussion work in this track. My only problem is that the track feels like it ends very abruptly. Almost too abruptly. Gave this otherwise exciting track a very lackluster ending. But two lackluster seconds won’t take away how I felt about the rest of this track.

I like it. A metal mix akin to the remake's version, except shaken up more. The change-up at 2:40 from the original melody until the end is welcome.

Some of the strings near 0:45 were a bit stiff, but it's minor (and so is the key! ). The blast beats were well-done; I don't often hear that working cleanly without an apparent pumping feel. Interesting fade at 3:26---I think that was meant to be for punch, but to me it felt a bit weird. Solid work though; great performance!
