Meta Knight vs Galacta Knight

Time to start off this year’s album project, here is the first song of VG Arch Rivals Vol. 4: Meta Knight vs Galacta Knight!

Hopefully this doesn’t need much introduction. They are both from the Kirby universe, look somewhat similar, their battle theme is somewhat similar and their fighting style is somewhat similar too. They met each other when Meta Knight was like “I want to fight the most powerful warrior in the universe!”. And that was Galacta Knight until the moment Meta Knight beat him.

Actually both of their themes already appeared together in the album version of Meta Battle (Sounds Alike Vol. 1), but the main focus in this song is quite different. Aside from both characters’ battle themes I also included some Halberd themes, namely Revenge of Meta Knight and Taking Over the Halberd. So let’s hear how it sounds:

It’s not complete without a video:

 

Didn’t know Revenge of Meta Knight could sound so catchy…I hope that was a good way to start off the new Arch Rivals. Now, the next rivals should arrive in 2 weeks as usual. There are still some very important rivals to cover!

VG Arch Rivals Vol. 4 Announcement

So I’ve been trying to work on another True Disciple song, switching up some of the themes originally included, BUT it didn’t quite work out in the end. Seeing as the expectations for such songs are also really high, I don’t want to risk giving you anything mediocre.

Instead, I’ll announce the results of the voting today. In case you forgot, we had a voting going on on YouTube which project I should do this year, either the next installment of VG Arch Rivals or another Sounds Alike. The results are pretty clear, as you can see:

Now that we have the results, why wait? If all goes according to plan, we’ll start with the first song of VG Arch Rivals Vol. 4 next Sunday. I hope to see you then!

Best of 2017

Another year is coming to its end and you know what that means: time for this year’s Best of album.

As usual it features all songs of 2017 which aren’t already on another album (like the Sounds Alike songs). The songs have been re-rendered for maximum quality and are available on bandcamp in different formats.

Actually a lot of the songs have been slightly altered for the album version, I’ll try to remember what I changed:

  • The Snippet Mutants/Greenhorn Funk/Divine Rhythm: Changed mastering completely to the one used in the latest songs. I think it sounds cleaner that way.
  • Show Me Ya Moves/Ndoplasma/Formidable Battleground: Changed mastering completely to the one used in the latest songs. Also changed the song structures a bit since it was no longer necessary that these songs are loop-able.
  • Thousand Eyes Disciple: Added some chords to the Zero Two part so it sounds more powerful.
  • Sick Beats: Changed the transition after the Super Mario part. Should sound a little smoother now.
  • A Hunter’s Journey: Added some oomph to the Lower Norfair part. Does it sound better now? I hope so.
  • Super Mario Super Fun: Changed the song structure so the transitions would be a bit smoother. Also changed the mixing for Jump Up, Super Star and added some effects. That part specifically should sound much better now.
  • Night of the Spider: Slight changes in transitions and some sounds and the ending. Now it sounds pretty nice >:]
  • Thu’um Like Thunder: Removed some of the shouts.
  • Industrial Rhythm: Added even more oomph to it.
  • Silver Spell: Adjusted the Silver Mountain part a bit.

Quite a lot right? Sounds like downloading the album will be worth it! Here’s where you can get the album, it will be available for free for a limited amount of time (just type 0,00 when asked for the price):

And of course, here’s the video. I tried to showcase the changes specifically, if you go to 14:20 you’ll instantly notice that for example:

 

And that’s it for 2017. I wish you all a Happy New Year, let’s hope for a nice 2018! >:]
