Alien Breed 2 - The Forgotten Theme

Post by Matt Smith » 14/01/2011 - 1:58

You know what I've noticed? Despite the fact that the title themes from classic Amiga blasters Alien Breed and Alien Breed 3(D) have been handsomely remixed by the original composers and other talented bods, nobody has ever got round to producing a remastered version of the atmospheric, groovy-creepy theme from Alien Breed 2, as heard here:

I for one would be thrilled to see (or, more correctly, hear) this put to rights by some cunning composer person. Given the unambiguously Aliens-influenced nature of the games, something in a James Horner orchestral style might be a fitting way to approach it; either that, or a straight techno-esque reimagining as a tribute to the toppingly fab Allister Brimble.

(The above link can also serve as a means of grabbing the mp3, by the way. Just do your funky "Save As" thang.)
