Oh hai

If I'm not mistaken, and I probably am considering how long ago it was, but wasn't it me who requested The Extreme?
Regardless, nostalgic rating is through the roof so no complaints there :3

The only criticism I can find is that the melody that plays alongisde the bass is just a tad quiet which lets it disappear with the bass, I'd have made that only slightly louder [not much, just slightly :>]. By melody I don't mean the high pitch that you can hear at 02:00, the lower bass tune that plays under it.
I'm not that good at explaining so I hope you know what I'm referring to...

In any case, still a great remake of a classic final boss theme :>
[You could have PM'ed me when you uploaded 2 years ago :P]

not bad

thats really brings back memories of my favourite game :D

You can play it?

It just sounds synthesized. If you really can try it with a Boss pedal or a metalmuff. It sounds really... like omg. I love playing this when I feel like pissing off people who can't play guitar.

ShadowMan-Kage responds:

Yes, most of it is synthesized...I use a Keyboard -> Midi port for most of my sounds...Like most of the guitar sounds come from my keyboard...just switched around the sound setting on my keyboard...I have tried to learn how to play a guitar and am still working on it...But I think i'll stick with my keyboard...I think i do better on it lol

Thanks for the review White-Carrion



Nice, but since I haven't played FF8 in a looooong time I can't remember which part of the game this song was in, do you remember?

ShadowMan-Kage responds:

This is the music that plays during the final battle with Ultimecia.
