Hi. I am announcing this a little early, because I am simply too excited to just sit on this news. I have been planning a vocal remix album for over a year now, which involved a lot of research — finding game music composed by bands, or just by composers with vocalists. All of this research resulted in a playlist of game music that features vocals, and has a somewhat consistent lyrical theme throughout all of the songs. That playlist is going to result in… a new remix album from me in 2014 called ENDLESS NIGHT!
I’ve finished one song for it already, and am elbows deep in another song that is almost fully written. The song that is finished, a remix of The National‘s Exile Vilify from Portal 2 will be releasing early as a part of An OverClocked Christmas which is coordinated by Will “Dyne” Gaugler. That album will be out in 2 days. I might also put the song on youtube, maybe on Christmas Day if I am able to do it then.
I am very excited about this album, and I hope you will be too. Here are some of the songs that will appear on the album:
The National‘s Exile Vilify from Portal 2 (The remix is called Don’t Even Try)
Alec Holowka‘s Lost to the Waves from Aquaria
David Bowie‘s Survive and New Angels of Promise from Omikron: The Nomad Soul
Akira Yamaoka‘s Take Me To Hell (Broken Dream) from Shadows of the Damned
Poets of the Fall‘s Late Goodbye from Max Payne 2
Blind Guardian‘s Sacred Worlds from Sacred 2: Fallen Angel
…and several more.
Some of them are by bands, while others are by well-established composers and musicians. All of the songs involved were made specifically for video games. I expect the genre of my remixes will be mainly organic music involving guitar (acoustic and heavy) and piano, among many other elements. You can get a taste of what I have in mind when Don’t Even Try drops in a couple days. In the meantime, follow me on twitter and use the hashtag #SHADETHEDAY
