OpenLight - Perseverance (SirHadoken Cover)

So there's this song that I really enjoyed a few years ago and couldn't stop listening to it, by the name of Perseverance by the legend himself, OpenLight. I got it re-stuck in my head recently for some odd and unknown reason, but this time, I started getting ideas about how to change the song, and how a remix of it would sound, and the thought wouldn't stop bothering me until I sat down for about four hours and made this in one sitting. Some parts aren't very great, but I still think it's one of my best, somehow. I guess I never really set the bar very high in the first place, eh?
On a side note, THIS WAS SO FUN TO MAKE! I didn't even listen to the original song a solid time before making this, so the last like 4 minutes of the song isn't even included in this. I went a little off on my own tangent instead. :)

Here's the original: www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/475468
I'll put it in the description so you can compare the two tracks, or contrast them more likely, but I won't put it off to the side since I didn't use any samples or clips from the original song itself.

Ok I am sorry but I actually hate this

Nothing wrong with not liking something


The intro lead isn't too spectacular, and there were a couple of wrong notes in the melody I believe. That's really the worst I have to say. I really loved that 0:07 part, where the bass and percussion grooves come in.
