This is literally the same images as OHC Round 658 lol. So i might as well rework that tune i did, into something new. I'm not lazy enough to just upload it, so i remixed it instead. I did the remix for obvious reasons, i mean why should i not?
In comparisons to the original, there are 3 things that are completely different than the original:
- I added more chopped breaks in this one, compared to before.
- There is more of a stronger chord progression in this one, than ambient flourishes.
- There is more of a looser structure, with more breakdowns than last time.
All in all, i spent a good amount of time on this, so hope you like it!
The ages you've spoke of have come.
Why didn't we heed the words of our wiser ones?
We instead fought among ourselves for our own petty struggles
All in the name of hedonism and the "right" of freedom.
Now, as the blood red sky burns around us,
How is there anyone who can save us?
In times of old
The computer told
The secrets of the world
Our trust was low
Our futures bold
Now face this world
Shedding blood all through the night
Spreading dread across the land
A sign of fear o'er your hand
Cast the pall into your hearts
Final days are yet to come
As they fly beneath the sun
The red shade rises.
Loosely inspired from stuff I could remember from a tutorial about making Doom style music. Unfortunately I haven't gotten familiar with the kind of synth work to make that real Doomslayer chaos, but this turned out kinda fun. Sometimes even when you fail to recapture a style, you can make something you're happy with!
