Kat - Wow, this sounds like an epic boss battle from Dark Souls! My only critique is that the intro goes on for a little bit too long. Otherwise this is awesome!
DusK - Nice minimalist take on the source. The instruments sound very warm and well produced. The minor addition are a nice touch as well.
YoshiBlade - You can definitely tell this isn't an MnP creation :) It's a very well put together mix with excellent use of SFX, however it deviates to far from the MIDI-rippish standard of MnP.

Kat - Gravestone is sick metal cover, well produced. It DOES change the mood quite a bit into a more epic movie trailer feel, but that's alright. This is too good not to slap into a voting slot. You're getting better and better Kat!!
YoshiBlade - This is a sick remix and has a great balance of MnP and originality. But I cannot put it in 1st place out of principle for not being made specifically for the compo. I PROBABLY should've made it a BONUS, but ehh, it's worth a 3rd place vote to me :D - this is just too good!
DusK - Haunter's Gaze; it's funny I assumed I'd be slapping you in 1st place DusK, just because you usually make some fucking bad ass remixes (Haunter's Gaze is no exception ofc), yet I found the other 3 mixes had more going for them. BUT that being said, this is a very enjoyable remix, well produced and definitely spooky. Nice work :)

Kat's piece had a lot of glaring production issues, but still did a great job of preserving the mood of the original track.
Chalis did a great job on creating an EDM track, but it completely breaks the mood of the original. Something like this would make a fantastic OCR submission with some polishing, but it goes too far off-base to consider it a solid MnP entry.

I'm a sucker for orchestral/piano stuff as it is, and this was well done and kept the original mood perfectly. Is that Rhapsody Orchestral Colors strings I hear?
Excellent mix overall, a bit of a dramatic change to the mood(but I'm one to talk there, eh?) but it works.
Rest In Peace:
Not too bad, really. I feel like a smoother sequenced violin/string section at the end would've added a lot though. I liked how it moved between slower sections and more trancelike segments.
