Information about the Game and Soundtrack:
Battle Garregga is a bullet hell shoot-em-up created by Razing, and Published by Enlightening. The game was a big hit, in Japan, despite not being localised in America or Europe. The game involves a series of ships, in which you select a ship, and transverse through various stages destroying a large quantity of enemies, 2 many to be useful. Because of the nature of it's ridiculous fast gameplay, it is only necessary and ideal, for it to be packed with an equally fast-paced soundtrack. Scored by Manabu Namiki, using a combination of FM synthesis from the YM2151, and 4 channels of PCM, it is considered one of the best soundtracks in Shoot-Em-Ups, which i can agree. The whole soundtrack features Underground Resistance Styled Techno Compositions, nested with occasional breakbeat tracks, as well as heavy emphasis of dark atmosphere, a feature in UR and Jeff Mills, 2 of Techno's finest acts, with one being a Label and a Group, and one, a solo artist with, incredible speed in mixing. I've seen the guys work. Also included, prominently in the boss battles, is fast paced hardcore, a genre known by few, for it's loud distorted repetitive beats. Although for some, like me it can sound awesome, especially those who are familiar, or for others, it can sound like a giant fart. I'm sorry, it is believe it or not, an acquired taste. Don't blame me though, blame the many fans who love this soundtrack, and i'm no exception. I'm not trying to tell you, this is in my top ten, but i'm sure you get the idea...excuse me...

Please submit a valid mp3 file, in decent quality that is less than 20mb. It must be easy to access and download. A ThaSauce page will be set up soon, so if you can then submissions. It's been an on/off situation with ThaSauce, so SoundCloud is a good choice if ThaSauce isn't working for you. Right now nothing is set up, so submissions will have to be external from this thread, via download links, or streaming services. I recommend using SoundCloud as a choice of service! Add a link here on this thread, if you can.
