A chiptune called 'Solnedgang' by Arachno remade into this what you hear right now. - Yea I got the title for my song 'Solned gang' from this (which means 'Sunset' in Swedish), so please don't hurt me for being absoloutely clueless when it comes to titles. :(

I had a go at compressing all of the guitars in this one and getting rid of any extra unnecessary EQing.

I also EQed the drums to sound a little more snappy on the snare and mid-bassy on the bass drum.

I am still working on this, so I have been contemplating uploading this to NG as a final piece, though it is getting there very quickly.

There are parts where the rhythm seems to sound a little rough with the techno-ish sine wave parts, I am trying to get them to blend well together and the lead is still being rererererecorded to perfection.

So there you have it, my life story and everything else too.
Enjoy! :)

New version with slighty more stylish guitars at 1:55 - 2:06 and different drums at 2:07 to go more with the style.

Also, a newer less bass-pounding kick has been introduced. Now everything runs in harmony. The only person who could spot any clipping in this track is Darkside555.

seriously rocking!


I do not really know why, but it reminds me so much of the tales of the abyss opening (google it). I tried to find some definite influences but failed.

Great song, could be a bit faster though.


I like it quite a bit actually. It's kinda relaxing and nice to listen to.


This song manages to pack quite a punch considering it's less than three minutes long! I really like the slightly distorted sound of the main guitar, and the way the keyboard rolling in the chorus meshes with the guitars is pure aural bliss. Sounds kind of like a much heavier version of Ratatat with more keyboards added in. There is nothing I would change about this track the way it is right now!
