What if there was one last act to the Ice Cap Zone?
There's the doctor again, plotting his scheme for world domination but Sonic cannot let this happen.
It all starts with a visitation of the icy lairs of the Ice Cap Zone where the blue blur finds Eggman trying to secure success by reviving his top lairs with the help of the Chaos Emeralds. The cold breeze winds back into his quills as he travels the freezing tunnels in search for his adversary.

This song was probably one of my most worked on. It doesn't feel complete, so I may go back and add onto it.

Song Specs:
Key: C Minor
BPM: 130
Instruments used:
2 basses,
2 strings,
Saw,
Piano
Drums

*EDIT!*

Number 19 on the list? Incredible! :P Thank you a lot NG and everyone who reviewed the song and voted on it. This is very meaningful to me as a musician to see it in the Top 30 of the Audio portal!

Because of this, Sega HAS to remake Sonic 3 & Knuckles & add a 3rd act, just for this track!! =D

oh the memories

You really did a number on my head with this one. It brings back old memories of when I had no worries and I just played Sonic all day. It sounds even better than the original Ica Cap song which is seems to be ruled as pretty good in my book.

It also sounds like it could towards being credit music for a game or flash or possibly the music you hear before reaching a final boss. The fade out effect was pretty greatly used to your advantage as well.

Well enjoyed and downloaded.

Well thanks. I tried to really "remix" this song instead of just remastering it. If there's one thing I've learned, you can't be fully proud of a remix until you add your own element truly to it and remix the composition. Ice Cap has always been one of my favorites from the Sonic classics and I'm glad I've done this song justice. I was also a little worried about the fade, but I'm glad it turned out good.

Thanks for the review SCTE3!

WOW! O_O

I really love Ice Cap Zone song ever since I've could remember the first time I've played Sonic 3. You've certainly cranked up the level of epic on this one.


LightKeeper responds:

Haha. Thanks man.

Great job.

I really enjoyed listening to this submission. It was really upbeat and fun to listen to. You did a great job on the video game/Sonic feel with this submission. The song itself never got boring or never really slowed down to be honest. You had a great variety of instruments too, which only helped your cause.

This also sounds like it would make great credits for a flash submission whether it be a game or a movie. Almost the your happy, but also sad that it's finally over type of credits if that makes sense. I also think that the fade out at the end worked really good with the song.

If this submission were ever released as part of a flash that'd just make my day. One thing I was trying to generate was that flow of energy that you're getting, and I'm glad I was able to. The fade out at the end was really unplanned though for the most part. Originally I envisioned the piece being longer but I slowly grew to the fade and it stayed with the piece. Glad it still worked well with the piece. :P

Thanks for the review Corky52!

Hmmm

What could be missing is the background of the second act. You hear it faintly in the main part of the song. The intro is great, adding your own interpretation in it. I think if (i dunno if im allowed to reference...) arcanedragon-2004 and his Ultimate S&K and S3 Medley, @ 1:40 he nails that small detail that makes ice cap zone. Try to emphasis certain parts of the song to make it stand out.

Still, yours is a great iteration of Ice Cap Zone, keep it up.

LightKeeper responds:

I see what you're talking about. That part comes in way at the end. I always planned to do more with this but my brain dried up so i was never able to add more to it. So while that may, in a way, be missing, adding it to other parts of the song may take away from its uses within the main course of the song and within the fading outro.

Thank you for the review and insight though mjuicebar!
