This is a song from a freeware game called Tyrian 2000. A fantastic game that had a special place (next to pokemon naturally) in my gaming history. I played this game with my brother back when I was around 5. Good memories, great music, fun remixes.

Special thanks to MaDad134 for supplying me with a good rendition of Gyges, will you please help me and the sounds from the original game, without his help I could not have made this!

Wow, this is awesome!
I haven't heard the original one though

I will be blunt -- in trying to make this your own, you've thrown out everything which made the original fun but didn't really add much else.

The song has no melody, just a single repeating pattern and some boilerplate wub-wubs (to reassure the listener it's actually dubstep). I can only assume the very out-of-place violin solo of the actual melody is so you can still call this "Gyges".

To be fair, the sheer energy of the original is very hard to catch.

Good remix and I'm glad you're back with us!

As to the music, I have to admit that this is not my favourite of your work. Don't get me wrong, I can only imagine how much work this must have been, but somehow, I don't favour Tyrian remixed with Dubstep; Somehow, it just won't work for me - at least in this arrangement.

I liked the approach in the style of Asteroid Dance v2 much more where you left the original audible but still created an uber-awesome remix. In this one, the only part where I can clearly make out the original is from 1:23 - 2:29. Of course, many Dubstep & other remixers do this, but still I liked your previous tries much more where you kept the original recognisable. Another thing I noticed: The transition at 00:50 is rather abrupt (one part ends, the other picks up without fading)

Some things I really liked though:
+ Brilliant editing, especially in the transitions from one part to another, for example at 00:39, 00:50, 01:23 and 02:29 of course.
+ Awesome implementation of Tyrian's sound effects ("Danger." / "Enemy approaching." ...)
+ Variation in music, dubs, rolls & beats department
+ Loops nicely
+ Variable percussions

As I said, don't get me wrong, you're one of my most liked audio contributors here on Newgrounds. I'm looking forward to your next project!

Solkrieg responds:

I understand where you're coming from with the "left the original audible" but if I do that, I feel as if I am taking short cuts, if I don't add my own work in there I feel it isn't a remix anymore. Thanks for the review! Sorry for the super late response though D:
