Credit goes to Moltov for part of this cover, since I got inspiration to cover the song from his cover, and likewise ideas for the cover itself. Credit also goes to the person/team involved in the composition of the original theme.

Finally found something else to cover. I had to restart the process a few times because my computer was acting strange. Easily the most difficult part about this cover was the percussion; I had to look over my Anthem Gram project file to get an idea of where I wanted to go with it.

I'm proud of how this turned out, although if I could do one thing, like with my Sonic III Final Boss cover, I'd make the drums pop out a little more. Unfortunately, I still don't have any idea how to go about accomplishing that using FL Studio, so...still kinda stuck here on that.

Really great cover.One critisism is that the guitar at 1:38 sounds really retro.I don't know if you did that on purpose or not.Secondly, maybe the orchestral sounds in the background should be emphasized to give it more effect.

I'm glad you enjoyed it, and thank you very much for the criticism.

I did actually intend that for the guitar. If I go full death metal guitar, it often doesn't sound very good to me, and so I generally avoid it unless the mood calls for it. I could perhaps upload an edit at some point to give the orchestral some more pop, but ultimately I wanted it to be slightly subdued compared to the other instruments.

Thanks for the review!
