I'm really happy about the response I got in terms of songs. This week we've got a great mix of genres, from orchestral to metal. Unfortunatly, no one came to meet my remake challenge, that being a bluegrass remake of some RPG song that doesn't sound like it would normally work as a bluegrass song (of course, I didn't get any bluegrass-style songs) so the bluegrass remake challenge still stands for this week.
Also it seems no one figured out the title for this past week's title, and since I'm not going to use a title twice, I'll go ahead and say from where it was. "Tempus Vernum" is a song from Enya's latest album, A Day Without Rain. Hopefully someone will get this week's title, and to give a hint, this one is a full 180° from last week's (I don't think anyone is that tone deaf to not get it)
One minor thing about submissions (not that you could have known before hand though): Please include the name by which you wish for me to post, as well as the song name, the game from which the song comes, and your own breif description (I'm looking for about two to three sentences in all) of your song, whether that be how you did, what you felt about it, etc. Kudos to this week's musicians for replying to my request for information so very promptly. Which brings me to the next thing to mention...
As you may have noticed, Sound Test has a new look. I'm relatively sure this is the way its going to stay while I'm around, so if you have any comments on it, please contact me. Scarmiglion, for several reasons, is not going to be able to work on the archives anymore, and the work he's done unfortunatly has been lost, so I've started redoing the archives myself. You can see my progress in the sidebar at the top of the page. I'm going to go chronologically backwards by half-years at a time, so as I finish each one you will be able to view the archives for that time period. I hope to get this all done by mid-October, so please hang in there for me.
This is how I believe Original Sin should have been originally. I've woven strands of a few familliar tunes into the mix, try and pick them out. I really suck at writing these descriptions, so I'll leave it at that.
