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.
