And you were right, 8 months.

Hey everybody, thanks for posting comments so far, negative or positive - it doesn't matter, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
@Shortmann: Yeah this is quite different from what we've done before, but I think it's inevitable to go through big changes when you've been away from the scene for so long. I'm probably sending it over to OCR later today. Hopefully we'll see it there in about 8 months. 

I also knew they'd throw you guys up without a second thought.  I mean, come on...you are Game Over!  You're a legend at OCR and we sit drooling over every song you submit  Grin

8 months seems about right for them, hehe.  But serious, while the old stuff is great, it's good to see you branching out and trying something different.  Tying vocals to the main melody is going to be a challenge for some songs, but is a great idea.  Can't grow as a band if you don't experiment and try new things.

Keep up the good work. Been a fan since a friend introduced me to OCR back in '03, and the first songs he showed me were Terra in Black and Little Mac's Confession.  So I have you guys to thank for the 1k OCR songs on my computer and the discovery of game music adaptations.

Awesome, thank you!
Our next cover will be from Mega Man. After that one's finished our choice of cover will, in all likelyhood, be one of the following:

Metroid - Kraid
F-Zero - Big Blue
Faxanadu - Overworld
Bionic Commando - Slime stage
Double Dragon - Title song

Comments on this will be very much appreciated.

If (even after 2 years) still holds true, then either Metroid or Faxanadu would be amazing.  Kraid's theme has little to work with (since it's a very short tune) but is one of my favorite themes.  Then again, everything from Metroid is amazing (Brinstar is gorgeous and Norfair is dark). But Faxanadu...ooohh, now that was a great little gem.

Tied for 6th place, not too bad.

Being following the forums (lurking in the shadows) for awhile, and thought I'd actually make a post regarding the new song.  I really enjoyed Nintendo Metal and NESperado, and really looking forward to the new album.

Really like the new song.  While I really enjoy the harsher/more melodic themes of some of the other songs (Little Mac's Confession, Translyvanian Temptation, Hyrule's Angel), I'm really enjoying this one.  Love the subtle little changes with the main guitar riff and the little "plunk" noises at the beginning measures of each verse.  After paying more attention to the source tune, I think you did a pretty good job at transcribing the melody.

While you may get some gripes about the new vocals, I think they're great.  Keep up the good work.  Do you plan on submitting it to OCR?
