Hello NGers. Today, I have a bit of a remix. In the game Descent 3, the music that was played when viewing either the Options Menu or the Credits is very similar. It's basically that bell-like melody you hear. It goes really well with the whole James Bond type strings I've got going there. SO

Sit back, enjoy, and vote fair. Leave me a review and tell me what you think! :D

A guard sits underneath the dim light against the concrete bulding in the darkness. His only purpose it ro make sure that no one gets in, and that no one gets out without strict permission. He stands in his suit, looking professional, staring into the thin night air. The moon lights up the hills in front of him, making any approaching intruder visible to his eyes. For Mr. Bond, however, the moonlight posed no problem to his smooth, shadowy movements in the grass. He crawled closer and closer without the guard noticing a thing. Then, when the time was right, the agent pounced upon the guard before he was able to grab his gun, and subdued him. The guard fell to the dusty ground below and the agent grapled his way onto the roof.

Up above, snipers lay ready, watching, waiting, reading every movement of the darkness. They were not looking behind them, however, as the agent swiftly and silently killed both without hesitation. He crawled into the vent carefully, and made his way into the fortress. Inside, he peered from the ceiling as scientists mixed their chemicals and conducted their experiments. He needed to act fast; they were onto something. The experiments were almost done. If he did not suceed, the weapon would be given to the Middle East and pose to large of a threat for his the U.S. to handle. He had to stop that from happening. He planted his charges carefully, and set it to detonate in 5 minutes. After this, he crawled back onto the roof and rushed over the hills and into the darkness.

Moments later, a large explosion bursted into the night sky far in the horizon as a car roared down a small highway. The driver, peering out into the twinkling reflection of the moon against the ocean, smiled at the fiery glow behind him.

(((I didnt realize this was a james bond remix, and yet I pictures an agent hiding in the shadows getting ready to really blow shit up. Nice job on creating an atmosphere! Great tribute.)))

Can you say...

HELL YES! I think that it is better than the original!

Well thank you! :D


You have a lot of good things going on in this submission. So where to begin? I guess I'll start from the beginning.

I like the atmosphere you are trying to obtain with this. Seems to me you are trying to get that sorta secret agent tone with this. A mix of electro and orchestral elements with a nice bit of ambient textures.

For the most part I like what is written. Although I think the strings could be varied up a bit throughout. Their loop gets to be a bit much after a short while. Maybe replace them for a segment somewhere with a slightly different progression.

Also, it takes too long to actually get up and running in my opinion. Most of the track lacks body. When the bass comes in it takes care of this issue. But I feel you waited to long to bring it in. I would have introduced it into the mix at 0:15 to be quite honest. It just takes too long to reach a full sound is my opinion.

When the bass and full percussion ensemble kicks in it sounds great. The tune has a wonderful tone and mix to it. And it really has that sort of spy atmosphere that you were aiming for.

5/5 and 9/10 overall. Some minor tweaks would make it better I would say. But all in all a solid submission for sure.


nightsurfermusic responds:

Thanks. I agree, it is a bit slow to start. I sort of wanted to introduce each of the instruments. Thanks for the review though, I'll keep your suggestions in mind if I ever get around to fixing up this song. :P
