[One Who Bares Their Fangs]


Author Comments

Original: The One Who Bares Fangs at God
From Xenogears
Final encounter with Krelian
Composed by Yasumori Mitsuda
Vanilla Arrangement

This song is the climatic point of Xenogears. When you play through Xenogears, you play through the game just to hear this song. The One Who Bares Fangs is the culmination of everything Xenogears is about in musical form. It is dark and foreboding, tinged slightly with sorrow and regret. But among those feelings remains solitary hope; hope that everything you've worked for throughout the game will succeed, and that you will be able to save Fei's beloved Elly. Fei's final discussion with Krelian remains the most memorable point of the game in a game filled to the brim with moments you could point to and say "This is what makes Xenogears such a fantastic game". I know Xenogears is an OLD game, but for the sake of new players that have yet to try it, I'll avoid spoiling anything else. I need to boot up my Playstation and play this game again.

This isn't my best project, but this project was mostly to try out and test a new electronic snare, fiddle around with previous instruments and see which ones blend together well, and find out which methods of layering work and don't work. If you notice any issues or don't like a particular instrument or style, voice your opinion. I'm using this song as a test dummy (sorry about that) to improve on songs that I won't be using as experiments like this one.
