RAKBIT

by NecroPolo

NecroPolo has produced a stunning album which is built on a vintage prog-sound: from hard as nails to Rhodes-heaven, NecroPolo has got beneath the skin of the pieces and created something which is totally authentic to their spirit.
As if that wasn't enough, this album features the first ever C64-executable album cover, complete with classic scrolltext and the original SIDs that appear on the album, in one PRG!
And if THAT wasn't enough, this demo contains the first ever usage of a revolutionary new SID encoding format which enables any complexity of SID to be played back with minimal raster time, no matter how complex the player! Named SIDRIP, this routine was produced by Hermit specially for this demo, because pieces such as Scoll Machine or Rimrunner needed to feature in this demo, and their players were far too difficult to squeeze into a one-file demo.

Listening Recommendation

 Last Ninja II - The Final Battle (loader)

Arranged by Eco

For me this track was everyting The Last Ninja stood for, mystical yet powerful. I loved it. Even if there were mixed reviews, for me personally it was really good.

 Ocean Loader Four

Arranged by Yoshi

A solid average remix, nothing surprising, nothing exciting, nothing
outstanding, but nothing bad, either. The thumping base drum is rather
overwhelming, but I like the choice of lead instrument.

 Panther

Arranged by Boz

It's a song of power. Get out of my way until we get shot down. Everyone will die, lose everything, but until then we sing.
