I've always wanted to write a boss-fight type of theme for a video game...

Initially, this was supposed to be a song that was to be played by a shred/heavy metal band a la Racer X (Scarified anyone?), hence the typical shred-ish guitar and bass lines. Then I thought to myself, "hang on... since most of these crazy virtuosic metal pieces sound like video game bgms anyway, why not just loop it and make it just that!?!" and so came the birth of this song.

Written in Guitar Pro 5 and then converted to mp3 format from midi, it isn't the best in terms of samples and overall quality. There's even a section where the recording chops up a bit (as you can probably hear by now) when i was converting from midi to mp3, but that's what you'd get from a 5 year old laptop running on 512MB of RAM!

I'm planning on doing a live recording of the guitar lines properly next time round so you won't have to put up with the crappy midi overdriven guitar samples in this version. Look out for that one in the near future!

p.s. if you don't already realise from listening to the track, i'm a big Paul Gilbert fan :P

Intense.

In terms of using GP5 to compose this piece (in most of the parts), I think this sounds spectacular, and would work very well in boss fights. If you could fix the chop parts and use better samples, I'm sure it's gonna be a 9-10 from me. ^^

Thanks a lot! Do you have any suggestions on which programs are good for obtaining better samples etc? I'm thinking about installing Cubase but I dunno if my computer will be able to handle it....
