Newcomer Infinity Tone [Karol (Charles) Kosacki] offers up an intense metal take on "Weapon Raid" from FF7, with some harpsichord thrown in for good measure:
"Here's my submission of a track from the game Final Fantasy VII. Instrumental, metal cover of "Weapon Raid" ("Attack of the Weapon"). The original will always be irreplaceable! :)
Everything you hear in this track was produced using virtual instruments - guitars from Impact Soundworks, Steven Slate drums, and other VSTs. I play around with keys and melodies in the second part a bit more than I usually do - it's just where the arrangement took me this time. :)
Hope you have fun listening and have a great week!"
Right on. I'm glad that Karol worked choir & harpsichord bits into this, because they give it a bit more character/personality and tend to be more persuasive in sampled form. "When the Planet Fights Back" sounds dangerously close to the premise of The Happening, which you should absolutely never watch as anything other than a comedy. This mix got better for me as it went along; the descending bass on the chorus hit me harder the second go-round, and I generally like how the structure changes enough to keep things interesting. Jivemaster had some praise & pointers:
"Starts off quite suddenly with piano leading us in. Soon after guitar takes over, with a pretty good rendition of the theme. Things break down a bit at 1:20. The choir in this portion could be better, but is not a key instrument here. The guitar cable buzz was a nice touch for the transition. Lots of drum fills keep things moving along. The 1:54 harpsichord section was a good departure from the main approach. At 2:11 guitars return for the final section. The rhythm there is quite interesting. Things build up and end with a nice delay on the final note. On the arrangement side, things are a bit-coverish. There are a number of lead guitar flourishes that help to bring it into its own, and some sections are extended or moved around, but more original material would’ve been appreciated. The production value is decent enough, with most parts being generally audible and balanced ok, without the guitars becoming overbearing. Overall not a bad job on this high energy piece."
There's room for improvement, but there are also a lot of things clicking & working well here, and a good sense of exploration & variation. Chimpazilla adds:
"What an exciting direction to take this source, very energetic. I love the soft breakdown with the harpsichord. The lead guitar is mixed on the quiet side, which doesn't help this mix since the lead is clearly sequenced and a bit weak, but you've done quite a good job with it. I agree with Wes the drums are fabulous and I love that buzz transition too. Good stuff, gotta go with it!"
Good, aggressive energy and a few extra touches put this over the top; definitely room to grow & experiment a bit more, but this is an enjoyable, assertive, & fun debut featured mix from Infinity Tone - looking forward to hearing more!
