Cradel of forest

Like it says, this one’s actually a re-mixed version. The original sounds so very bad. As the story goes, someone wanted to make Rock Band charts for this song and asked for separate tracks. I didn’t feel comfortable giving them the original mix, so I re-did the mixing and mastering. And that’s pretty much it. Sounds a lot better than the 2006 original though.

When I first heard the Silent Hill 4 OST I said to myself: “I’m going to make a power metal cover of this song! …..one day.” Then, 18 months later, when I saw that this month’s (September 2006) theme at DoD was Silent Hill I knew what had to be done. And did it. With this song I also secured my first DoD win!

The original mix can be found in the Treasury section though, if you really want to hear it.


Eternal night of the dead

Another one I did for OMC. The task this time was to make up a TV show, and to compose the theme for that show.

Lyrics

Night comes as usual
When the day comes to an end

But this night is different, this night is forever
An appropriate time for evil to get together and fight

What a horrible night to have no morning
Undead they rise
The monster dance

An eerie silence creeps across the land
‘Til the screams of fright fill this eternal night

What a horrible curse to have no morning


Synopsis

Show Title: Perpetual Night
Genre: UK Survival horror/comedy/drama series (13 episodes per season)

The premise is that for a reason to be disclosed later in the show (watch it to find out!) there are no more mornings, only “Perpetual Night” remains. Of course, perpetual night would be boring without some action… So there’s evil afoot! For each season the cast has a different evil to fight off. This song is the theme for the first season, where this evil is the undead.

It all started with pingosimon’s thread on the Minibosses message board. pingo made his interpretation of the theme with vocals and everyone started making versions of their own in their own style and language. I made one, too.

Despite a few issues I’m generally happy with how it turned out.

Kellotornin läpi vie tie luo Draculan
Poimi taikakello ja voit pysäyttää ajan

Kiipeä kiipeä kiipeä kiipeä kiipeä huipulle kellotornin
Ylitä silta, vältä rotkot, väistä lepakot ja niiden tulipallot

Turhaan luuranko sinua luullaan heittelee
Tornin huippu häämöttää jo

Isot linnut kantaa kynsissään pikkumiehiä
Taikakellon mahti auttaa sinua selviämään

Kiipeä kiipeä kiipeä kiipeä kiipeä huipulle kellotornin
Siellä Dracula odottaa, kohta koittaa hälle kuolema

Suojele kaupunkilaisia pyhäl’ vedellä
Ja vituikshan se meni taas

Nyt pelataan Contraa!

Quite faithful to the original. I did leave out synths though (because I’m lazy), and my ending is different. The solo is, too, because learning all of it would have taken too long. Maybe not my best mixing job, but all in all I’m almost pleased with this, at least for the time being. The guitars are somewhat out of tune with each other, but don’t let that (or other issues there might or might not be in the song) bother you.
