Donkey Kong Country has always been one my favorite childhood game, I love this game, especially the music!
I've wanted to do a cover/remake from David Wise's Gang-Plank Galleon for a while now and I finally decided to do it :)

I did this all by ear while listening to the original snes version and I did my best to keep it as much the same as the original.
Although I did do a few adjustments :)

haha sweet, king k rool!

I like hwat you did with it - stereo could stand to be a bit wider though.. but I really like the sounds you used!

And of course the epic metal - the bass feels a bit drowned out by the percussion though..

That takes me back to when I used to play Donkey Kong Country on GBA, Top marks, awesome work.

OOH well done you brought my childhood back to life bro :)

Everything was done right, and it was even more powerful than the original

All my yes! Just like you, I have always loved DKC and its music with a passion. It's certainly one of the many influences that inspire me to make music. There are so many incredible tracks on the OST and this one has always been at the top of the list.

This is an exceedingly faithful cover/remake...and then some. Suffice to say, you totally nailed the original's feel and cranked it up a notch. If anything can be nitpicked even remotely, I'd say that the lead guitar could have just a touch more presence within the mix. It doesn't seem quite as loud as some of the other instruments.

All in all, this is one hell of a nostalgia trip! That intro shines like a supernova and really dives headfirst into that sweet, piratical goodness. And those ambient ship at sea effects are perfection. Five stars, easy.

I know I already commented some on skype, but this track is so good that it most certainly deserves a review on here too. And I rate you... (Obviously...) 5!!! :D
This is a wonderful cover.

Amazing work, Mattashi o.O!
