Your style and the way you put the elctronic beats in the song reminds me of Dream Theater... Awesome Job!

DanJohansen responds:

Preciate it man! Haha I guess a few parts in there has some Dream influence, nicely caught!

Finally someone who actually CAN fusion oldschool game music with nowadays Electronics.
You even made the interlude totally with-the-flow-like and it wasn't boring at all, it was like the whole song was made for that part and the other parts and JEEZ FUCK THAT SHIT YOU'RE ON MY FAVOURITE LIST RIGHT NOW.

Can't get enough of yer songs mate.

DanJohansen responds:

Cool! This tune isn't down many peoples alley, but glad it was down yours, it was def super fun to create it, thanks for adding me to your favs list man!

Friggin' awesome sound with a nice rhythm to it! Really digging the last parts where you went all out! Sounds perfect for a beat 'em up game level.

DanJohansen responds:

Thanks to you for recommending me those sounds! They are great, glad you dig the tune :D

This is ridiculous. This is a major throwback to those 90s video game battles. This so pretty cool, I absolutely love the sound design and the main lead/square was executed so nicely.

DanJohansen responds:

Haha awesome that you liked it man, it was so fun to make, haven't made any tracks with these sounds until this one.
