I managed to pull it off after all, just in time for the spookiest time of the year! today I present you a Halloween Megamix: Halloween Mayhem 2018!
Some of you may still remember a similar thing I did 4 years ago, where I would make a medley of all the Halloween mixes I did so far. This is somewhat of an update, building upon the 2014 version – however, it only includes Halloween mixes which start with “Night of …” (also Mad Monster Mansion for an epic ending).
That means, this song references the following Halloween mixes:
And here’s the video as usual – I hope there aren’t any more embarrassing mistakes this time…
I really like how this one turned out. I was thinking I should make these Mayhem mixes every 4 years or so. Next time I could just add some more “Night of …” songs to it, although these songs would get pretty long then~
If you don’t have enough yet, be sure to check out my Halloween playlist which includes all of my Halloween (mega)mixes so far.
I hope that makes up a little bit for my long absence. I wish you all a…
Well, it’s been a while! I can’t remember ever making such a long break, I’m truly sorry…I had a lot of ideas in the meantime, but executing them turned out to be a problem – good thing Halloween came around to give me the motivation to finally finish another song! I hope I didn’t get too rusty during my downtime…
Today I present the result of our voting and this year’s Halloween Mix: Night of the Demon! As the name suggests, it’s basically a medley focusing on tunes related to demons – I included some of the songs you suggested during the voting period as well. There’s quite a few tunes in there, so here’s the list:
Memorial of the Fallen Ones (Credits) – Demon’s Crest
Akuma’s Theme – Super Street Fighter IV version
At Doom’s Gate – DOOM
Boss Battle – Shin Megami Tensei II
Battle Theme – Persona 2: Eternal Punishment
Demystify Feast – Touhou 7.5: Immaterial and Missing Power (I somehow got that mixed up with Missing Power at first – sorry about that!)
ASGORE – Undertale
For Akuma’s tune I tried to make it sound a bit more like the SSF IV version, although I found it really difficult to get the notes exactly right. In the end I listened to my version so many times that it just started to sound right – but it might sound a little off to you.
Can’t do without the video of course – note that at the time of upload (and shortly before the first comments arrived) I actually confused the Touhou Theme I used, so it says “Missing Power” instead of “Demystify Feast”. This is incredibly embarrassing, so please forgive me:
Normally I would upload the video around the 31st, but if I can manage to do what I planned, there might be another video by then – no promises though, although I would have some catching up to do…
Just to be on the safe side, let me wish you a Happy Halloween!
Starting off with an apology, I’ve been sick the last week and wasn’t motivated at all to work on any projects. Even now that it’s gotten a bit better, I’m still fighting with my motivation. I did think of some new ideas for mixes, but executing those ideas is a different story…
Aside from that, it’s about time to get back into the spirit of things. It’s October, and this year’s Halloween mix is getting closer. In case you didn’t know, there was a voting on my YouTube channel, asking you what theme this year’s Halloween mix should have. That voting ended today, so here are the results:
Surprisingly, Vampires lost to Demons and Zombies didn’t stand a chance. So this year’s theme is gonna be Night of the Demon. I gathered some ideas already, got some ideas from your comments as well, but all I can say for sure is: expect some Shin Megami Tensei in that mix. I want to make a dedicated mix for vampires at some point, so despite that one could argue that a vampire could be classified as a demon, I don’t really want to include them in this mix specifically.
While “demon” is a classification that can easily be stretched, it’s also possible that I might include some tunes that have absolutely nothing to do with it. That’s almost a tradition by now anyway.
To sum it up: Sorry that there’s no song today, but don’t worry: it’s time for this year’s Halloween Mix soon!
