Chapter 2: Daicoo Hyper Races

   After the war ended and the new Rift Energy took technology to new heights, the people organized a hyper space ship race league in order to celebrate.

The ships during these races were one manned vehicles that were fueled by Rift Energy giving them more power and speed than anything from the past.

Apart from professional racers, many of the participants were war veterans and mercenaries. One such mercenary was Van “Ice Hawk” Ferioz, known for his inhuman like reflexes in handling the speed that the new energy source had brought space ships.

His fearlessness was already legendary during the times of war when he fought for Klorathi, and he pushed himself beyond his limits which served him in becoming champion more times than any other.

   His fiercest rival was a war veteran from Marcavo, who had also been a rival during the war. Kathor “The Tracker” Naithaal as he was called, had faced Van on the battle field in the past and the Hyper Races reignited their rivalry.


Story written by Frank Johansen, for my upcoming concept album ''Rift Energy''.

I am loving your stuff dude, alot of it gives me big Guilty Gear vibes. I will definitely be keeping my eye on you in the future.

DanJohansen responds:

Appreciate it a ton man, video game music is definitely the nr.1 inspiration to me. Rock on! \m/

it's a little more upbeat than they would do, but this reminds me if Keldian mixed with a group like Dionysus. Really good job on the riffs and synth at the end, tho I think the last note is a bit abrupt. Maybe a more gradual finish would have been better

DanJohansen responds:

Glad you enjoyed it man! I had more of a BANG! through the finish line thing in mind at the end. So I think the abrupt ending was a cool thing to do. Rock on \m/

Wow, sounds good to be a hyper race, good job! :)

DanJohansen responds:

Thanks a lot man! :D
