Clad In Shadow – Shadow Ridley

After a comment I got on my last video, I decided to meditate and think again about what this year’s project should be. I came to the conclusion that Clad in Shadow has been abandoned for far too long and needs to come back. So this marks the birth of Clad in Shadow Vol.2! Oh wait, does that sound familiar? Yeah, the first entry of Vol. 2 already exists….well, let’s call it a rebirth then, shall we!

In this project, tunes get a ‘Shadow‘ version by mixing them with a Persona Battle Theme. They will usually have a darker feeling to them as well. Exceptions prove the rule though.

Well, at least that’s how it used to be. However, I have expanded the idea to allow myself to include not only Persona Battle Themes, but any battle tune from the Shin Megami Tensei series – as long as it works for its intended purpose, of course! That should be enough variation to keep things interesting and work for a variety of character themes.

So the second entry of Vol.2 is Shadow Ridley, the shadow version of, well, Ridley’s Theme from the Metroid series. It comes with Fierce Battle from SMT: Nocturne and the Boss Battle theme of Shin Megami Tensei II. Since his tune is already kinda “dark”, I decided to go into a different direction and aim for more of a Shadow Meta Ridley as you can see in the video.

Here’s the video:

The next song should be ready in two weeks, that should still leave me enough room afterwards to easily make this year’s Halloween Mix as well.

Clad In Shadow – Shadow Slick

As announced last week, this day marks the birth of Clad in Shadow Vol.2! A week late, but I hope it was worth the wait. Cue copy’n’paste explanation:

In this project, tunes get a ‘Shadow‘ version by mixing them with a Persona Battle Theme. They will usually have a darker feeling to them as well. Exceptions prove the rule though.

Vol.2 starts with Shadow Slick, the shadow version of Doopliss’ Theme from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. It was one of the first of the shadow songs I originally made for the Super Mario: Vanishing Existence series and you can still make out some parts the original had – although not many. This version features the Battle theme of Persona 2: Innocent Sin as well as the Battle and Boss themes of Persona 2: Eternal Punishment. Also some lightning and spooky sound effects – looks like Halloween is early this year~

Here’s what I settled with for the presentation of the Clad in Shadow videos for now:

 

I’ll try to make up for the delay by preparing a new song for next Sunday. Shouldn’t be too much of a problem, since I have the next week off. Can’t say what it will be though!

Update July 2018

I’ll keep this short: I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather lately and don’t have anything ready to upload today… I’m getting back into it though and will hopefully have something to show next Sunday.

I’ll likely have the week following next week off, so I might be able to make up for this delay – but I don’t want to promise too much, you know how it goes sometimes~

I’m currently working on the first track of Clad in Shadow Vol. 2, so you can listen to these songs again to get back into the spirit:

Remember that Clad in Shadow songs aren’t going to be made in a row like usual album projects, but instead irregularly, whenever I feel like working on something evil~
