I was aiming for a melodic death metal feel, here. Enjoy!

sounds like doom

I can see why this is your best of 2016. Fast, frenetic, and driving. Only thing that brought me back to earth was the harmonic progression at 1:11. Top note sounds ... strange. I'd have written it a semitone higher. What I wouldn't give for the midi file off this one!

Seth responds:

Thank you for the review. Glad to see you checking out my stuff. Midi file headed you way tonight.

Awesome! how did you make this?

Seth responds:

Thanks!
Mixcraft, VOPM, ProtoPSG, Megadrive drum samples and a few hours of work.

You always make the best songs

Seth responds:

Thanks, you're too kind.

This seriously reminds me of Fatal Fury and Cool Spot!
Can't forget Comix Zone and Air Wolf!

Well Done!
Do MOAR!
Oh...maybe you should go about remixing Sonic 1's SBZ from the mega drive :P
You could even do a few other tweaks and slides ;-)
Audacity can be a bit tricky to get the sounds just right with some of those game's tracks to be honest...hell..maybe you should remix some of the Sega CD's Silpheed tracks as well in this format, especially stage 1 and 8 ^_^

Seth responds:

Thank you very much for your review.
I was actually aiming for those darker VGMs when I played this on the piano. But I also wanted to emulate the style of melodic death metal. Listen to Cathode Ray Sunshine by Dark Tranquility and Twilight of the Thunder God by Amon Amarth and you'll see where I'm coming from.
As for the soundtracks you mentioned, I can't say I'm familiar with any games on SEGA CD, except maybe Sonic CD, which I'm not particularly fond of, though a couple of tracks stand out. I'll check it out, though.
