Mega Man X2 | Zero's Theme v3

...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/

Thanks for checking!

Thank you.

Legendary mix of a legendary tune. This has, for a long time been up there as one of my all time favourite megaman x tunes, but because its a lesser known one, its very hard to find, even in its original state. You have given the tune a well earned tune up in the perfect vein for the song. All my Ratings are belong to this epicness. Oh, and for the record, you should take a look into doing a mix of Sigma's theme from the same game. (one of my other favs :P I'm greedy what can I say lol)

Currently not on my to do list but I'll see if I can get it anywhere in thar. There is other cool stuff about to come (also a bit lesser known tunes) so watch out! ;)

I'm glad you enjoyed my version of this very fine tune which sadly is VERY short in the original version. When I was listening to it over and over I thought...FUCK, this has to be expanded somehow. There is more behind it then just the original melody. I was also tired of most cover or so called remixes which ONLY got the original melody down over and over.

Soo, I sat down and recorded, mixed and presto! :)

Anyways, thanks for your review and ratings! ^^
