Interesting cover SJ! Taking the orriginal song and adding a nice twist is very creative of you, i can see this loop go into a game really well.
That's what I was going for.
Great cover. The original has an epic theme and this one seems to fit nice as an ending sequence theme, when the game ends and all heros were glorious and are dancing at the INN.
Thanks Satyre! I'd wish this could be used in Castle Crashers. Perhaps in a sequel.
Wow, thanks for the cover SJ! I've seen a couple of covers of the track, but this is definitely the most creative.You do a great job taking liberties with the harmonies while keeping the original material intact. I love that cut to piano at 2:10!
Any chance the game is available to play online?
Thank you! I actually preferred to make an original song than do a cover for the game, but the programmer wanted me to do a cover, so I took as many creative liberties as I could, to still make it as much my own thing as possible. I like your original song very much and it was very interesting to work with. I tried to avoid listening to other covers, because I didn’t want to be influenced, but I later looked up the other covers on Newgrounds and found out they were quite good. There’s the the jazz version by Camoshark and the dramatic cinematic version by PeterSatera. They sound quite different than the original, and Camoshark and PeterSatera both put a lot of themselves in it. Still I think nothing beats the original. Good job on that one.
SJ, you always have a knack for creating these really cool power driven video game tunes, and that's what I really enjoy about your music.
I enjoyed the "disco beat" choice that you went with, it gave David's composition a new dynamic that takes it away from this fairy like bounce to a head bobbing pulse.
Only critique is the air sweep at 1:10 could have used with a percussive volume decrescendo to accompany it but it doesn't take away from the piece much just something I happened to pick up on.
The staggered sample was a fun idea, and the build up towards the end was a cool interpretation as well. You guys should send me the file of the game you were making!
Thanks for the review and the kind words.
I'm not too fond of remixes, but I'm happy with how it turned out, and glad I could give a new dimension to a good song.
If you want to see the game file, please ask the Wolve Guy.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
