The Quake soundtrack is in my top 3 favourite VG soundtracks ever.
I was randomly searching for info about it and came across a thread on a quake Forum advertising Project Aftershock. It was on the NG audio portal so I knew I had to check it out.
This sounds pretty good, however listening to it on my monitors, a lot of the more musical elements that were more prominent in the original seem to be way quieter here (specifically in the beginning/intense section) and it really detracts from the chaotic madness that was the original, even if still minimalistic in terms of actual tonal depth. I also really miss the distorted screaming effects that added to that chaos, and the yelling voice of pain that persists throughout the ambient part of the song, which gave it a tone of desolation, hopelessness and darkness. I do like the creature-like noises though, very fitting with the game's Lovecraftian tone.
Overall a good tribute, but missing much of the evil quality the original had.
Anyway I'm really glad to have found this project, best of luck to you guys, I hope you can give me a new musical experience the way Trent Reznor's work did when I first heard it.
Now I'm off to check out the rest of the tracks!
OMG! FUCKING EPIC!
Holy crap man I swear this is soo damn epic. It's freakin insane. Nearly shit my pants >.< I'm so going to listen and download the whole project.
Even though it's got rock bits in it.. OMG SO GOOD.
I'm really lost for words
Another ZOMG to keep you happy XD
Hey not bad cover though i gotta ask....is this a MIDI cover? Or did you do this completly by ear? And is that a synth guitar? Sorry for the questions just curious. Goo work on the produsction end and the evil drones in the middle were a nice touch :)
I listened to the original and by ear recreated it as this. The guitar is a severely distorted square synth. Thank you for the reveiw!
Quite nice. ;)
A little far from the awesome guitar feel, but as a tribute, the feeling crawls right up my spine... :D
I was searching for Quake music, and I stumbled across this track, and I have to admit, it's probably the best one that I could find that wasn't techno/trance! I would love to hear you do some tracks from Quake II!
Project Bitterman will remix the entire Quake II soundtrack, including expansion music. It will be launched within the next 2 months.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
