The Final Fantasy VIII battle theme 'Don't Be Afraid', metal version by GaMetal.

Always thought this was an interesting FF battle theme, probably because it's in 5/4.

All instruments, recording, and arranging by Jonny Death. No instruments are programmed.


You have a untold gift of making people play more of these awesome under appreciated games from back then and substituting your music in place of the originals! It's becoming a thing if hasn't before.

This is probably the best arrangement of this theme ever made. It does everything the original theme does, but with way more awesomeness. I use this in place of the game's normal theme when I play.

'Don't Be Afraid'

This version is definently not that. The opening is great, far better than the PSX version. The 'middle' section (the slow part) is interesting, as I wouldn't have put the slow part there myself...but, that's artist nitpickery. Great arrangement!

can you do a gametal version of the FFI final boss theme and great as always

Do you think you could do a metal version of Final Fantasy VIII's Boss Battle Theme, "Force Your Way"? Its the one mainly associated with the summon battles
