FFVII - Tools of the Ancients

Share Download this song

Author Comments

I love how this one came out. It's "You Can Hear the Cry of the Planet" (aka "City of the Ancients") from Final Fantasy VII, using bits and pieces from my older arrangements, with a Tool/Porcupine Tree feeling. I've got the feeling that you guys will love it.

This is different

Nice different take on the theme! i just uploaded a remix i was working on for 3 years, and it was done mostly electronically. so its a way different sound than this. This one is great i can see a lot of effort has gone into it too. Studio productions are always nice to listen to. nice going mate, see ya

Joshy676 responds:

Looking forward to more productions, as soon as we get some better equipment in here. :P

Thanks for your review. :D


i liked march of a god better just because i naturally like fast pace songs. I feel like this is more of an ambient FFVII song so with that in mind i really like it for a slower song so another 10/10 5/5 for you

Joshy676 responds:

We're doing a lot more work on this when we start rolling with new equipment, starting with a new guitar amp (why I don't just get a job is beyond me). The bass parts will sound a lot better in the next phase of production.

Overall, this little diamond in the rough will be an OCReMix, by hook or by crook.

Thanks for your review. :D


ffVII is awesome! it me a while realize where it was!
still liked it XD

Joshy676 responds:

Thanks for your review.

Woah dude...!

All those specifications make me feel like I know nothing about music XD

I think it turned out pretty cool... very professional I must say ^^
It will pass SOME time before someone tops this one. Great job =D


Joshy676 responds:

Thanks, Seph. Glad you like it. Unfortunately, I (that is, we -- my brother and I) want this one to be great enough for OverClocked ReMix (OC ReMix), so a bit of the stuff is likely to change. There's no telling what will be taken out if it doesn't work right for the piece. It's a real work-in-progress.

However, any edits will be placed over a new submission; that way, this one can remain the Newgrounds version.

Anyway, thanks again for your review.

Very nice.

I enjoy the relaxing-yet-intense feeling this remix brings.
Nice game, nice remix.
Keep up the good work.

Thanks for your review. I'm glad you liked it. :D
