Always great to see new faces! BA3 brings the talents of neshead80 (Alan Taylor) to our shores, as he takes on the classic "Sub Castle BGM" from SMW and puts his own unique spin on it, perhaps best summarized by his single-sentence explanation:
Director Pieter Van Os writes:
"Who knew a mix from Super Mario World could be so creepy and so rocking at the same time? When I spotted Alan (neshead80) on YouTube, I knew I had to get him on this album. "Sub Castle BGM" from Super Mario World is one of my favorite sources and this had the perfect vibe for BadAss 3. While technically not a boss theme, this theme is basically a boss level theme, which is good enough for us. Especially when the mix is as awesome as this. With some tweaking and improvements to make this mix as BadAss as it could be, Alan created a perfect transition from eerie and unsettling to rocking as hell within one ReMix!"
Co-director Chernabogue adds:
"Welcome to our castle... Where did I hear that before? Another combo of guitar/ominous atmosphere brought by neshead80, with a lot of synths, and fat percussion - he brings back the heavy rhythm and a creepy lead melody later on. The guitar work is spot on, and the solo is perfect. Be ready for a whole new arrangement of a very remixed tune. And a good one."
Agreed; at first I was thinking that this particularly approach might not stand out and be as memorable as the many other excellent arrangements we've seen over the years, but by the end of the show I was convinced. Excellent use of guitar textures in a more modern, semi-EDM vein of sound design, and a superb escalation of energy as the mix progresses. Would love to see more from Alan, and happy to have his unique contribution to BA3 here on OCR!

This is one track that I didn't really believe in at first, but when I got to the introduction of the rhythm guitars halfway through, it just escalated from there past awesome and into the region of insanity. That guitar solo... I still think it's a sample library, but it really doesn't sound sequenced to me. Maybe Alan made great use of a MIDI guitar controller! Definitely the highlight of the track, and it just blows the listener out of the water.
