First one to be done on time, I didn’t think I’d make it. Get Ready for the fourth song of NEO Lord of the Elements, True Disciple of the Earth!
This one is definitely unexpected as this was not part of the original Lord of the Elements and instead part of the second Disciple album, Master of the Elements. Even more unexpected should be all the changes the song has seen for its true form, as the remake leaves no stone unturned. Hear for yourself:
I didn’t intend the song to become 8 minutes long again, but here we are. I guess this calls for another song list:
Fighting of the Spirit
Tunnel Rhino Stage
The Totem God
Stone Tower Temple
Twisted Humiliskate (Rockslide Rumble)
Strike the Earth! (Plains of Passage)
Once again you can use the characters on-screen as reference to what song is playing at which time in the video:
I can’t believe I managed to finish this one on-schedule, seeing how long it became and how many changes there were. The next one isn’t going to be much different, I intend to change it up quite a bit, oof…
Well, two more songs to go – another remake and the final song – let’s see how long these take to make.
The Disciples are back – prepare yourselves for updated versions of a bunch of Disciple Month songs in the coming weeks for this year’s special project – NEO Lord of the Elements!
We start with True Disciple of the Wind, which is technically the 4th (!) version of this song. Disciple of the Storm, which is a remake of the original version (which was not part of the Lord of the Elements album) released not too long ago, but I hope I changed and added enough things to keep things interesting. Here you go:
There are so many themes in this one, I feel a list is in order. Here are the tunes that I included:
Fighting of the Spirit
Faith is for the Transient People
Wind God Girl
Kaze no Ne
Song of Storms
High Above the Land (The Flying Machine)
As usual there’s a video as well, and this time you can (to some degree) tell by the characters shown what theme is currently referenced:
Off to a great start, yes? But there’s a lot more to go. See you in 2 weeks with another one, hopefully!
Because there weren’t a lot of songs in 2020, I didn’t make a Best of album back then, but they were included in this album for good measure.
As usual I tried to upgrade the songs a bit for the album, so many songs underwent some more or less subtle changes compared to the songs I uploaded. I can’t remember which ones though, you’ll just have to go through the playlist and listen for yourself 😉
I also uploaded a video for one of the bonus tracks – Meta Battle 2021 – which is a remake of Meta Battle from Sounds Alike Vol. 1. The other bonus tracks are alternate versions of songs, including a hidden alternate version of Eggman vs Sonic 2021. Here’s the video:
And that concludes 2021, a little later than I’d want, but still according to the planned schedule. I don’t really know what’s next, but I have quite a few ideas. Since Disciple of the Storm was so well-received, I might remake a few songs of the first Disciple Month this year. But for now I’ll go and play a bit more of the new Pokémon game 😉
