It actually looks very Castlevania-esque, looks like a sweet game. Can't say I've ever played it though.
But your music, man... asdahsdajaskasd.
You can compare yourself to other artists all you want, you've got something incredibly unique going on.
I just wish you had more time to pump these out :c
Downloaded, five'd, tenstar'd, love it, need it, want moar! <3
It really is! Though it's really just a hack-'n-slash with a boss every stage, but the style is what drew me to it when I first played it (then, the music lol).
And thank you! <3
You will get moarrr in the near future don't worry! :D
Going through my favorite Newgrounds composers, I find that every single one writes music of the same style with a signature mix of sounds and moods that gets infuriatingly repetitive after listening to 10 or 20 of their songs. With this, you break that tradition while still keeping that "NemesisTheory" sound we all know and love.
Now for details. I personally disagree with LightRiku about the section from 2:07 to 2:31. It may have a slightly different feel from the rest of the song, but it is a refreshing break in what may have otherwise ended up being way too repetitive. In my opinion, it allows the listener to take a few breaths in preparation to a smashing finish...
About that "smashing finish." The end of the song seems too depressing and clean when compared to the rest of the song (which did indeed have the effect of "making you feel really dirty" xD). For a song like this one, one would expect something along the lines of a climatic finale rather than a cooldown. I'm not sure if you chose to end like you did because of the original song or simply because you liked it that way, but that's just my take on it.
haha, I am a victim of changing up my style every so often, it gets kind of boring doing the same thing over and over but that's just for me personally XD
I'm happy you liked that part, as I said in other reviews it was pretty risky and not something I'd done before (let alone in a remix that's supposed to be 'serious'). The end style was chosen to reflect the original and the title and author of the original soundtrack (psy-), I'd also never really taken on GOA/Psy before and thought it would fit pretty well for an ending! You're right though, a better climax maybe would've been better, but I'll save that for a next remix. :p
Thanks for the review! <3
Yet another guy who's never heard of the game
It wasn't the title of the piece that made me click on it, it was the author. Doesn't matter if I haven't heard of the game, I can always count on you to put out quality songs. I wasn't disappointed of course. I feel like I always just give you a ten and rave about how good it is without offering much in the way of constructive criticism though. I mean, it's pretty much because I really think you're that good and can't ever think of anything to say in the way of constructive criticism. However, that part from 2:07 to about 2:31 I didn't like as much. I felt it had a different feel than the rest of the song and didn't fit. Just my thoughts. Keep on showing us your awesome composing skills! Can't wait to see what you come out with next!
haha, aww, thank you!
you should totally check out the original songs though, they were so great for being in like what, 1994? really great video game music in my opinion. Not quite mario or zelda or anything, but it fit the style so incredibly well. :P
it's too bad you didn't like that part of the song! it was rather risky and to be honest it was something along line the lines of a hidden birthday present for someone. xD
thanks for the kind words and the continued support <3
i love this song period.
and i love this review period! <3
There are very few songs that I'm willing to give 10s to in reviews; usually, there's some sort of weak portion or poorly chosen sound that prevents me from doing that. (For example, even Waterflame's "-Village up north-", another of my favorite songs on this site, got a 9.) This song has no such handicap (which is especially impressive for a song that's 5:37). The syncopated portion from 2:07 to 2:31 was especially cool, due in part to the leading sound you used at 2:19. The way the song tends to alternate between heavy sawlike tunes such as at 3:11 and light, high-pitched leading melodies against the heavy background such as those occurring at 1:14 was excellent. You used a perfectly varied palette of sounds, and I literally cannot think of any significant criticism, which is a rarity.
Wow, I'm really happy you feel that way!
I'm always a big advocate (did I use that word right? :P) of change ups myself, so it's very nice to hear that some of the parts where that happened are appreciated. <3
Thanks again for the really kind words! <3
