Cell Theme Tribute [DBZ]

Author Comments

Hey again, me again! This is a DBZ Tribute song of the Perfect Cell Theme.

I remember hearing the original on Toonami back in the day, but had totally forgotten about it until it came up on DBZ Abridged.

So, on a whim (like most of my music, really), I decided to play around with the theme a bit. I was working off memory for the beginning part, so when I went to listen to the source material I realized I had gotten a single note of the melody wrong. Realizing my mistake, I started working with the correct melody for the second half of the song. But at this point I had kind of given up and just wanted to finalize what I already had.

As much as I wanted to be crazy perfectionist (lol perfect cell) about the song I decided to make it an imperfect tribute and just leave it at that. I don't have a lot of time for music writing nowadays and wish I had more. Maybe in the future I'll do something better fitting a perfect jawline such as Cell's. But as of now, I have this very busy, very loud WiP version.

I don't think I've ever rated you this low before...EVER!...and this hurts my feelz.
You are literally all over the place in this piece, as you stated...you went from off-key, to the original notations. I also have to agree with other posters such as Axelstation, things seem a little higher and others lower than expected. The energy of the piece is what saves you from a 0 bomb (you know I wouldn't 0 bomb you) as it sticks true to the melody of cell...
A perfect Jawline as you say, would probably have to be Cell's Theme upon reviving at the end of the Cell Saga...the energy during those last 5 episodes of his theme was intense.

WIP's are usually loud...but i KNOW you KNOW how to master out the volume... (stares maliciously)
The mastery in this piece can't really be heard...it sounds like some of your earlier submissions back when technology wasn't as...advanced...as it is today.
PLEASE!...for the love of all that is ungodly on newgrounds, drop us something much more, well...MOAR!

Side-Note(off-topic): Your mash-up of the Ninja Gaiden tracks I requested of you, have seen A LOT OF LOVE...don't believe me? Scope it for yourself and seeeeee!

Is awesome

You tightened this up very nicely! It's a little hard to tell, but it feels like the drums got a little more punch and the synths are a little more prominent? I could be off, but overall, it feels stronger than it was previously. I also like the ending with the notes dropping off. Great work mate :3

Ayyyy, thanks for the review! I'm glad you liked it!

This is absolutely insanely good! The bass when the drop comes in is just phenomenal. It gave me a sense of scale. Total destruction and annihilation.

Good one! Looking forward to more.
