a simple video game loop that came out sounding cool and egyptian. there's a cool little double harmonic scale going on in the background of the latter half of this loop.

I can really see a pyramid theme going on with this one. Kind of makes me think of a mix of Earthbound and Paper Mario both which involved fighting an area boss inside of a pyramid too. It's a just a real simple piece that gives off a great feeling as if you were in the pyramids looking for the boss and treasure at the same time.

The bass lines work together to create two different kinds of beats that sound very close and very maddening at the same time. The simple drum line also adds to the effect as well which is really good as well.

Overall, simple yet keeps to a pyramid theme for games. Nice!!

Sounds nice

Never really heard anything really Egyptian before.

I feel like you could've used a bit more guitar in this, to give it a modern feel as well as an Egyptian feel for more relation to the listeners.

Still good though!

i was definitely going for a simple sound on this one. i wanted the relation to be more attune with old video games than modern music. the melody is made using a synthesizer. if i had taken the time to record guitar samples for a song based on middle-east style scales, than i would have been too tempted to do it in the style of death metal, and the clash of genres would have been too isolating to the listener. the way i truly imagined this was as the background music to an old school platform game, in a stage that contains pyramids.
