Well, hot dang. This is one hell of a remix of a classic piece.
Pros: The build up to the lead was fucking amazing. You really nailed this. The addition of a snare was easily my favorite part. You did an absolutely fantastic job with the mixing on this, so I'll say you did fucking amazingly.
Cons: The drums were a little loud over the top of the instruments. Now, while this isn't a bad thing per say, it is also over the lead, which makes it sound like just background. The side chaining in this, while not bad, seemed a little intense, for lack of a better term.
With all the cons aside, this is absolutely fucking awesome. You nailed the sound, and I think this could be one of the best remixes on NewGrounds. Very well done, 5/5
