Welp. First song of 2017. This is a reworking of a track from the 1989 NES Ninja Gaiden, requested by user @JustShawn.

I understand Newgrounds has been cracking down on people doing covers, but as I am openly stating this song is a tribute to the original with no direct monetary benefit to myself and marking the correct CC licensing information, I'm sure it will be fine.

I also made a companion vid showing me working on the song, check that out here: https://youtu.be/ODSLXDquZAo

I've been taking a lot of time for myself lately, which means good things. Stinky Pinky Promise :)

Wayy the fuck over my expectations bro! Absolutely brilliant! Pieced together nicely, and does justice to the original! Temco would be proud of you and the way you arranged one of theor greatest hits of all time! Its good to have you back as well! The ending was pieced together nicely with your usual flares you throw in which made this piece scream Burn7 in every shape and form!

Listening to this on my bluetooth headset, everything is balanced to the T, and in saying that, I welcome you back to the light of newgrounds!

As far as licensing and being in violation of the Community terms and rules, naw. You did everything right, and this tribute is just that, a tribute to one of the greatest NES games of all time! While on par with Megaman, LoZ, Mario, Metroid, and a few select other titles...you do Homage to those artists, and they would be absolutely PROUD of you and your work!

WOW, okay. So, I checked the source material, and this just took it up a 1000x notch. It makes the original game BGM sound like a cover.

Amazing work! The opening was very enticing.

Fantastic job man! Great work, downloaded and listening to it now :D

Burn7 responds:

Hey thank you kindly! I appreciate you taking the time to come and check it out!

As usual, I'm not familiar with the source material, but this was a really great track! The guitars and drums compliment each other nicely, and it all has awesome power to it. The calm bits were exceptional as well. Loved the intro, and 1:40 - 2:06 was a good break to build up to the rest. Great stuff, nice work mate! :D

Burn7 responds:

:D I always appreciate you taking the time to check out my stuff, even when you don't know the source material. If you're curious: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sa7cRml5w8

It's pretty barebones so it left me with a lot of room to improvise which was cool.

Anyway, thanks again for being you! 'Cause you da best.
