Hello there!

Thanks for taking an interest in my music! Providing you link back to me and give credit, I am fine with this :)

very ominous

Very nice! You gave it your own personal touch while still staying true to the original feel of the track. Thanks for reviewing my nightmare mix too! =]

Darrenkerwin responds:

Hey ArcX! It has been a while.. apologies, I neglected my comment section, but i'm glad you enjoyed it! I think its good to look back at what you have created and grow from there. I hope one day I can come back to Newgrounds with music and set myself a new benchmark!


one of my favorite metroid tracks made even better (which i didnt think was possible) but seriously you have done a magnificent job on this remix.

Darrenkerwin responds:

Hey! Sorry, I neglected the comments here Thanks! This is pretty old now and I know that there are much better ways of creating music. However I think it's important to look back at what I did back then and grow from there. I am glad it appealed to you though! :)

Wow man

Very good job on an amazing song from the best game ever, Super Metroid ^_^

Darrenkerwin responds:

The feedback is much appreciated. I do feel I have improved since then, so maybe i'll re-submit this piece in the future. I completely agree, Super Metroid forever <3

Very, very nice~

Now that I'm hearing this, it looks very nice. Also, of how you manage this one is looks more realistic. :3 Good Job! *thumbs up* ;D

Darrenkerwin responds:

Why thank you samusmmx! I listened to the pieces from Super Metroid and Metroid Prime 2, two very different variations of the theme. I then decided that both were good in their own way. I decided to keep my take on the theme true to Super Metroid, but up to date with a Prime feel. I also wanted to make it different to every other theme out there, that's why I included a few of my own ideas at 2:20 to 2:47.

I'm really pleased with how this turned out, and I hope my music will continue to improve the more I learn. Thanks for the feedback!
