The great and awesome Donkey Kong Country soundtrack is also in my top 5... That's why I couldn't leave behind the epic Gang-Plank Galleon's theme, from the last King K. Rool's battle scene from Donkey Kong Country.
I also made this one on a Symphonic Metal arrangement... I must confess, I took some influence from Nightwish, one of my favorite and representative bands of all my life...
The guitar riffs I included, are exactly that style. So, just tell me what you think!
Thank you guys, thank you Newgrounds!

Donkey Kong Country was always one of my favorites. I had it for the GBA and SNES but I unfortunately lost both copies. It might be the first game that actually gave me difficulties as a kid. But once I made it to this guy, I think I would replay the game solely to beat him so many more times. King K. Rool is one of Nintendo's often forgotten about characters and it's rather unfortunate. At least his theme will always be remembered right? This little mixture of metal and your skills has completely turned this theme into something else. It makes it just that much more memorable. I hope to get another copy soon...

Very nice once the theme really got going. All the parts of the song are well arranged and well EQ'd - HOLY CRAP - I am just hearing the ending. Very fun! Woulda liked to hear you play in that craziness a little longer, but very fun all the same! Good drum work throughout, too. Wasn't too crazy about the portamento you had on the melody (would have turned it down a little bit imo), but it doesn't ruin the melody or the song.

Keep up the DKC mixes!

I love it... Nostalgic!
You mixed the Metal sound good with this!
