I have no idea how to do the whole file hosting thing so I just used zshare because that's what Viva La Hova used. Additionally, there is one bonus song that will be released a little bit later that is not from this album. It's not a B-side, either.

Fantastic music. Easily some of the best chiptunes stuff I've heard, and definitely a level up from the stuff I've heard from you previously, Matt.

WT4 and Fired from the Plant are going to drive me nuts because I definitely know Fired and a lot of parts from WT4 sound familliar as well, but I can't quite place where they're from. More importantly though, the originals are really great. I think Melancholy Tide or When The Beat Drops are my favorites.

A hot injection of 8/16-bit tunes right into my brain!

I have to say A Random Encounter & End Process are my favorites out of this album.

Great Work!

Excellent listenin' tunes my good sir! I liked them very much!

Anyway Niko, "Fired from the Plant" is similar to "Chemical Plant Zone" in Sonic 2. WT4 is Wily Tower - Stage 4 from "Mega Man: The Wily Wars."

Niko Anesti said...

I actually ended up figuring out the Chemical Plant one on accident, heh. I had only played Wily Wars once before, so I don't think I would've remembered that. Thanks, Ice.

Aw, why'd you give up on Hungarian Dance no. 5? That would've made a wonderful full-lengther.

Andrew Kauervane said...

You should make a non-NES album, I think alot of the stuff here would sound good if it were done with instrument sound fonts. Maybe I just don't dig the 8-Bit. But I still think you could make something I'd really be interested in hearing.

This is really great. I can't find anything else about any other stuff you've done outside of this blog post. 8bitcollective/myspace/facebook/whatever?

I seriously dig on the emphasis on melody, harmony, and (as a guitar player) solos! Especially in "How to Kill a Man From Outer Space", which I don't even remember the source of. Seriously, some of the most interesting chip stuff I've heard in a while. Thanks!

nice. this is the kinda stuff that inspires me.. gotta wonder about the process, did you actually use the original NES composition tools or is there an emulation somewhere I could grab for myself? Random Encounter + Chase 4tw. I totally thought Melancholy was one of the 'covers' but I checked the site again only to see that it was not.. I guess that makes it even better. I might make you some remixes if that's ok.

as a player from that ages, I feel really happy when I saw this, just remember how do you feeling in that time well at least from others gamers to the same age, Castlevania's music, Mega man's music, viagra online music, and so many others.
