Listened to this during a workout and it was great. You should do an 8-bit workout mix.

Extra bonus: "strong men die" sounds like "Star Man dies".

This was fun. The only thing I would improve is the mastering. It sounds a bit low in volume and not very crips (but this may be caused by the sources as well). Good job! :1cool:

I remember that Batman game! The music didn’t stand out to me back then like some other NES games' tunes did, but it sure ending up making a nice garnish to this tasty instrumental!

The rephrased Breaking Benjamin vocals took some time to get used to, having been familiar with the song. Things work out well in the end, though. The only slight nitpick would be that when he is singing in the lower register (0:18, 1:47) it seems like the mids are overly boomy. Might be related to an effect you have on the vocals, or it might just need some good old EQing.

Nevertheless, this is...Image

I'll hold off giving this one a promotion until the Star Man has the opportunity to address MashGyver's comments. It's front-page worthy IMHO.

Thanks all for the compliments and criticism.

I have finished and uploaded a remastered V2, with overall raised track volume/balancing, vocals reworked by removing chorus effect, reverb set away from the accidental 'eco' setting to 'high', more EQ dipping of mid and raising of treble, and a few minor phrasing fixes. ★
