...or just "Zero" as it's named in the original. Anyways, done and done and done! Finally! :D

After a damn long time in the works, this tune finally got it's third and last revival. I made my first cover of this in late 2005 when I just started with recording...to be honest, it sounded like crap. The second version was sligthly better but still not good enough for me. So in late 2007, over two years after the very first recording of this, I finally decided to make a third and last arrangement. Wanna compare this version to the old version? Yeah? Then have a big laugh...

With this piece I present a remix of this very memorable Theme of Zero, if not the best Theme of the hole X series for him. It's not just the original melody, nono, it's a story to be told. Imagen the two heroes facing each other in the battle that was meant to be from the start.

The fight begins with the original melody, which is going right under the skin of retro-lovers such as myself. ;) After 30 seconds of nostalgie the actual remix sets in. Both made their first strike and for a second, the toms take out a little bit of the climax before the fight continues. From 0:30 - 0:52 it's a random fight in the room, they both deal damage to each other before taking their stances again for a short moment at 0:53. After that, the fight continues in an even heavier and more heroic way. The chinas and cymbals crashing indicate each time they clash together. At 1:22 X is thinking about the fight and back when he and Zero became friends. Not wanting the fight but still knowing he has to do it, X deals some heavy damage to Zero from 1:33 - 1:45. The last segment of the song describes the final attack of X, which defeats Zero...

Anyways, I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I enjoyed making it! Review and vote if you like what you've heard! \m/

That was intense, very very nice. all the megaman themes are always amazing, but you may have just perfected it!

DarKsidE555 responds:

Thanks a lot! It was my goal after all and I'm glad a lot of people think so of it! :)

Very nice :D

What software do you use? Is this a remix or your made it from a scratch?

DarKsidE555 responds:

LoLz. It's made from scratch of course. "Remix" because I took the original and gave it a hole new twist. For my recordings, I use CubaseSX3.

Thanks for checking.

So many of your songs...

So many of your songs, just not your Mega Man songs, but a lot of your songs could probably be used in flash animations. A lot of them have been used in flash animations too. I guess you have the knack for making songs that would be great for fast pace flashes or fight scenes. Pretty good all around. Nice piece of audio here.

People find this review helpful!
DarKsidE555 responds:

They could, but it seems I'm not THAT well suited for flash movies. Liek PGX9. lolol. Anyways, I hope I could educate a bit on Mega Man music. If not then >:(

Thanks for checking man!
