Classic game. Many hours of my life lost to this trying to beat that ridiculous boss at the end :D

im not worthy im not worthy the metal consumes my soul

This is amazing! I love the energy and the layering and the well-timed changes in the rhythmic pacing (e.x., :35). The chord at 1:01 is awesome. There's a lot of different emotions in here, but in the end it comes across as victorious, frantic, and passionate. I also really like the breakdown at around 1:30. The second breakdown at around 2:30 even has a touch of dreaminess to it. Really strong work here, PirateCrab! You clearly put your soul into this track. Keep it up! ^^

PirateCrab responds:

Thanks bud! Got no soul left, gonna just make Metal memes now haha!

Hell yea, great cover :D

Spent so much time trying to get all the GFs and cards. Final Boss took me awhile due to having a scratched 4th disc. :(

I hope FF 8 gets a remake someday, it is pretty underrated.

PirateCrab responds:

Ugh, scratched disc. I feel your pain :(

Same! I hope they follow in the same vein as FF7 and remake both 8 and 9, very fond memories of those games!
