Tales of Nowhere - Thane

Heya NG! I recently took part in the construction of a podcast, Tales of Nowhere, which is where this theme is from.

This is the 3rd version of the theme of Thane, an Elf Battlemage from the tabletop rpg Shadowrun. In-context I changed the theme to be more Bladerunner/80's sounding which actually fits the character much better. But I still like this one :D

The theme plays when the character's backstory is being discussed, and when he dies and/or is siphoned via interdimensional vortex to the Cafe Nowhere by a Russian Copernicus.

Confused? So is he!

You can catch our podcast every Wednesday at https://www.talesofnowhere.com or wherever pods are cast!

Has a good head bangin' feel to it and DOES stick my generation's melodic style! Well done on keepin' true to the 80s! I do have a small gripe though, and that would be some segments seem a bit out of place...pretty sure if you listen to it a bit more closely, you'll see what I am talking about.
Its nothing too major, just kinda turned me off for about 5 seconds, then it recovered NICELY!

If you were to ever do an underground or heavenly piece...make sure you stick true to 90s gaming for that one, namely the early and mid 90s...where the revolution of RPG's took place... >:=}

If you're a lil lost...google the RPG revolution.

Heeeyyyy I'm glad you thought this was cool! I was going for a more "classic rock/jam" kinda vibe here. Eventually I made a sick synthbass '80's version that sounds all actionmovielike.

I'll definitely look into more RPG songs, I'm gonna need all the help I can get. Really the way I write all of my music is "Did Doom do it already? Then I'll just copy what Bobby Prince had,". Every single song I've ever written can be traced back directly to a doom level. It's much easier to hide the truth when I'm just doing a cover of a doom song, but every riff, every melody, every rhythm... All lifted from doom. Every single one, straight copypasted. The Pokemon/Zelda songs? Straight outta Doom. My entire Album? Basically just doom. Anything with my vocals? I just record the 1993 game then remix it to sound like a voice.
