Rock & roll man! I´d say you have an ambitious mix there. Nice guitarwork and enough backing instruments to make it interesting. Nice subtie synth. You´ve tried to make it varied,  I like the break around 2.40. The drums are a bit weak and monotone for my taste, but otherwise, a good song!  Cool

Nice work!
Do you realize how much Tides of Darkness sounds like Dissection, Somberlain era, at the map theme? Cool! Just another proof that vg music and metal are the same thing.    Grin


Soooo, when are you gonna win this contest?  Wink

Haha, thanks for the kind words!  Grin

I'm not too much into Dissection, but I know that this is a compliment. Thanks.




I will win when... ehm... soon!  Cheesy

Nice track! I haven't heard the original, but still. I like the simplicity and the mix of piano and guitar.

I liked this one! The guitar and piano go very well together, and this time I can´t even complain about the drums! I think my favourite part is between 1.00-2.00, partly because I knew it from a remix by dasaten on olr, but mostly because of the great transition at the end. My only advice is to focus on just two or three tracks from the game. You don´t have to agree, but I think it helps when you want to weld together different pieces to an individual work.

Dwelling of Duels is so fun.  I entered this one for January:

http://dod.vgmix.com/past/jan08/34-zangderak-SFA-Tooth-DoD.mp3

It's Adon's Stage from Street Fighter Alpha.  I placed 34th out of 46 (the largest month for DoD I believe).  Yeah it's kind of a low ranking, but I agree with the negative comments:  the guitar tone is crap, and it gets repetitive.  But nevertheless, I had alot of fun doing it and still think my track rocks in one way or another.

Yeah man, I still think it should have placed a little higher, with all those crazy solos and harmonized leads flying around...
