The piece from my little boredom thing (Finally finished!) where I had fans suggest songs then vote on the suggestions.

You all asked for Touhou 8: Imperishable Night

So here it is, in old-school metal!


(Original Music by Junya Ôta; Rendition music composed and mixed/EQ/mastered by George R. Powell)



Rated 5 / 5 stars

nicely done :D

btw. Did you use fl studio to make this arrangement?

Glad to see you finally managed to get around to finishing this! It's nice to see that you took some liberties with the song while still remaining faithful to the original work.

I read the other reviews left thus far, and I've gotta say, considering that everything is synthesized, the guitar and drum sounds are pretty realistic! Very impressive. I particularly like the way the drums kick in at 0:45 and 2:00; it's a great way of building up to the climax of the song.

My only criticism is about the way the song ends. I think it would've been more appropriate if you'd chosen to let the song loop without letting it fade out.

But all in all, you did a fantastic job with this! I love it! :D

People find this review helpful!

Actually, I'd thought about looping it like that, but it seems everytime I try doing that with Nuendo, there's always a split second of dead space between loops, and then people criticize that it's supposed to loop but hits a silent bump. Every piece I've let end abruptly for looping sake always gets someone who says "Can't you just fade it out so it goes out clean?"

So, I figured it's best to give it a cleaner outro. I dunno, maybe it's just a difference of opinion.

I appreciate the input, though, and I'm glad you like it. =)

Great, but sounds a bit "synthy"

It's an exciting, upbeat headbanger; i've never heard of touhou before, but it's still a good headbanger nonetheless. The lead guitar sounds awesome, and contains lots of catchy riffs. Most of the background guitar sounds too synthetic though; kinda takes away from the metally intensity. Still a welcome addition, exceeding the average video game theme cover.

Setu-Firestorm responds:

Yeah, I agree. What happened was I put the usual distortion on the rhythm guitars that I did in the last couple rock pieces, but for metal it doesn't work. I should've used a different more fuzzy and bassy distortion so the original strat sound can't be heard tingling about the way it was.

Thanks for the input.

This sounds awesome, it really sounds like a solo from a avenged sevenfold song.

Nice to see some touhou music in NG!

It's good to see a fellow newgrounder remixing touhou songs!

To be honest, I can't really say much about the song itself, although i think some of the guitar is actually synthesized.

Setu-Firestorm responds:

It's all MIDI, yes. All of my work is 100% virtual, done in a MIDI environment. I just try to make it sound as real as I possibly can, which admittedly doesn't always pull off optimally.

Prior to this, I'd never even heard of Touhou. I hosted a boredom thing where people would suggest video game music for me to cover, and of all the suggested, this one came up the most voted for.

Your feedback is appreciated, though.
