You may have heard this one in the third scene of Sonic Legacy's voicedub for Issue 1. This is the scene where Sonic and Tempest confront the first badniks, and find the capsule filled with captive animals.You can see this video on the Sonic Legacy YouTube channel by clicking this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4x5nTrSWCbQ

It's a collaborative effort with fellow Sonic Legacy musician, SonicString, who got the track started and did most of the first half of the track. The objective was to stay somewhat orchestral while adding a little intensity for the badnik battle. I myself had the honor of scaring Sonic with the sudden burst near the end of this track, in the part where they first find the capsule. This was definitely an interesting project for sure, with a tempo change, style change, and having to time the music out to what was going on in the comic (a term known as "Mickey-Mousing").

I feel like it turned out ok, we kinda had to rush production since deadlines were coming too close, so there wasn't a whole lot of time to edit. But the upside is that we had accomplished out objective and the comic dub turned out very well because of it.

Thank you all very much for the listen! I would love to hear honest thoughts! I could use some pointers when it comes to this style of music. Nonetheless, I hope you all like this!

Never underestimate a stampede of a hundred Motobugs

Honestly remembers me a little of runescape music,its okay,not my kind of music.

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

I appreciate your honesty on that! And if I'm being honest, this style is new to me as well. I'm sure in time I'll adapt and develop with this style a little better.

Excellent song, varied and well, clear sounding!

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

Thanks for that! It was definitely an interesting experiment, since I myself am not used to this kind of style. It sure was fun though. I mean, I got to scare Sonic! That was fun XD

Thanks for the review!
