This song I made for Jernemies for Secret Santa 2013 (at the end of 2012)

It is inspired by bassfidlejones and MaestroRage, because they're so good at making epic music.

It's a remake of my earlier song 8-bit genesis, but in a totally different style. The other one was serene, while this one is aggressive. Some people were complaining the earlier song was too slow. To prove them wrong, I kept the same bpm, but I added drums and guitars to give it more drive.

Also note how simple this song actually is when you listen to the 8-bit version, and how it still can sound grandiose.

I hope you like this, and don't hesitate to use it in your game or video.

Edit 10th of June 2014: Made various changes. Added better amp and distortion effects on the rhythm and base guitars. Made the snaredrum slightly less high pitched and sharp. Could do with some more improvements, but those will come in due time.


Great battle theme! I really love the part that starts at 1:02 with the flute-like sounding instrument.
Keep up the good work and I hope to hear more from you :)

Hey cool track! Unusual for something with this goal in mind.

Thanks! I was afraid it would be too cheesy or common.

this really fits hellfirecommentares' playthough ristar's final boss

SourJovis responds:

Hellfire Commentaries could use this for their playthroughs if they want, but they usually keep the original music from the game and Ristar's final boss already has music. Or I misunderstand you.

Great song man! Reminds me a little of One Winged Angel the Advent Children version. This really should be in a video game. It is indeed quite simple I think. Makes it seem a little pretentious. On the other hand, that you can make this song sound large despite it being simple, may prove what you have is very close to the core of what we like, so the core of our very being if it were. Making it all the more epic. I also listened to your 8-bit version (8-bit genesis), and I noticed you say that was an intro for a web series. Does that mean this is for the final battle of that series? That would be very cool I think.

SourJovis responds:

Thanks. It does indeed sound a little like One Winged Angel, because of the intro has that same staccato beat, the fact that it's a combination of orchestral and metal, and because it has a choir.
You know well how to formulate that simple can sound good or even epic. Take dance songs for instance. Most have a simple beat, but that's what makes it danceable.
The direct cause of me making this song is that I wanted to make something nice for Jernemies for Secret Santa, and he said he liked orchestral, metal and jazz, so I did two of them (I'm not good at jazz). But I've been thinking about making a battle themed version of 8-bit genesis for a long time. In fact I think I responded that to one of the reviews (Is that where you got the idea from?). I don't know if I will ever do that web series. Animation tests didn't go very smoothly for me. The story seems a little too thin. But at least there's the music.

Wonderful sounds
Great Looping
