The hooded figure appears again. This time, he wishes to impede your quest. But there is a sense of urgency behind his blows... Does he know some terrible truth?
Remix of Robed in Shadow. Increased the tempo and added percussion. Sounds like a desperate battle for both sides.
Vote and review if you know what's good for you. XD


Boss battle

I have no idea why but this makes rather fitting boss music in a good eerie toned way as well. The tone of the song seems to be dark, desperation, and a last chance to kill off an enemy who has been trying to kill you since the start of the game.

The chorus is actually quite nice when combined with the organ for a dark feeling in the boss battle that gives you a spine chilled feel. The synth sounds great here and very speedy within the boss fight itself. The drums kind of don't roll in the best fashion either.

I think in my opinion that the drums would sound a bit better if slowed down a bit and given a more dramatic taste as in it just plays at a given tempo and the drum sounds come from time to time to scare or creep out the player.

Overall, cool boss song.

Drums... I really need to work on my drums...
I'm glad you think the organ was a nice touch, I'd been working on that particular instrument for quite a while, making it sound just right.
This is the battle theme for the guy that's been following you, watching your every move... as far as you can tell... O_o
Thanks for reviewing! I'll maybe do some more work on this one in a while.

Nice composition, drums don't fit

Not bad at all. This sounds like it came straight out of a Video Game, and the melodies you incorporated were really nice.

So yeah, I'll start by saying that I do like the melodies. They give a sense of desperation and I can easily associate this to a boss battle in a Video Game. I agree with Sawdust that you've done a good job of building a well composed song over a simplistic melodic line. Nicely done!

The atmosphere is great. Like I said, the song reminds the listener of despair and conflict, with the strings evoking a sort of ominous/suspenseful feeling, and with the bass adding a unique touch. Somehow the song, mainly the bass's melody and sound, is a bit reminiscent of some BGM in Ratchet and Clank 3, or at least for me.

The sounds you chose, unfortunately, weren't excellent. I do like the bass, it gave the piece a bit of originality, and the strings were nice too, but as I said in the review summary, the drums don't seem to mesh together with the track as well as I would've hoped and this seems to be because of the sounds you chose for them. The beats were good, but the sound of the samples themselves just didn't compliment the song well. Also, I don't like your use of the organ (probably personal preference). It made the song pretty tiring to listen to after a few play-throughs.

Also, the track is a bit short, which is one of the reasons why I gave you an 8. Because of this, I feel the song is a bit underdeveloped. That said, it works great as a background loop, especially due to the fact that the loop was seamless.

In conclusion, this is a nice track. The melodies are fantastic, the atmosphere you created was good, and it looped perfectly making it excellent for background music. The only issue I have with it is that I don't agree with some of the sounds you chose, especially the drums. Keep it up.

LOL, drums have always been my weakness. I will agree that it's a bit repetitive, I got kind of lazy composing this (as often happens with my remixes :P) The organ was just a way to lengthen it... I could possibly throw in some variation in the main melody, as well as change the percussion samples. But thanks a lot for that detailed review, I'm glad someone takes the time to listen so carefully to my music.

<3 it!

I like this, even though I never heard the un-remixed version.

Jumpy but serious at the same time, and would well as some type of boss music.

Favorited&Good Job

Wow, thanks! I'm really glad you like it! You can check out the "un-mixed" version in my audio, if you want. It's not really too exciting. But yeah, thanks a lot for reviewing!

Great melodies

I really like the intricacy of this track. The subtle little things like the arpeggios and lower strings in tandem with the main theme the strings were playing was absolutely marvelous. You're really great at building off of such a simplistic little line to create something as complex as this. Well done. There's not much room for improvement, really, the song is great as is.

MeteorManMike responds:

Wow. I must've done something right. I'm thankful that there are still people out there that pay attention to the little things. Really glad you enjoyed it!


For the oddest of reasons, I beleive anyone could use this in a first person shooter.
