Once Upon A December (Anastasia Remix)

I've always planned this since years ago, but only until I finished my compilation album "Website Releases" did I revisit the idea and start anew. Lo and behold, it's a symphonic metal of "Once Upon A December" from the 1997 animation "Anastasia", performed by Deana Carter and composed by Stephen Flaherty. Thus begins "Website Releases II".

I took a much more symphonic approach to this one instead of concentrating on the metal.

... say what now? XD

For me, the beginning of the track was haunting, almost filled with a kind of fear, then the acoustic kicks in and peace flows over the whole thing before the electric guitar booms over and this piec of music just melds both peaceful and haunting feelings together for me, nicely done, like a sir.

rtnario responds:

Got the imagery right, then ;) Thank you!


Probably one of the lesser known of the non-Disney animated movies out there. Know one that I know even recalls this cartoon, which is sad cause it has the second most alluring song I've ever heard in a cartoon. First would be in American Tale II.

rtnario responds:

Yup, that's true, along with Balto. Thanks!

nearly perfect...

first 40 secs could've been for ever... you should kinda freeze this for some aliens that come in about 500000 years to show mankind did at least something good.
9/10 5/5

rtnario responds:

HAHAHA, that'd be something XDD

Memory bringer...

This song was beautiful from the movie, and now that I hear how you changed it up I love it even more! Thank you vato, this deserves a higher rating.

rtnario responds:

If it wasn't beautiful, I wouldn't have remixed it, and me having a very European metal influence with genres like symphonic metal, I knew that the song with metal would be a perfect match. I'm glad you liked it!
