Story
A modernized version of the old classic intro music by my favorite C64 composer Matt Gray. I was surprised that nobody had made any covers if this. True to my style, I tried to make it as close as possible to the original. I use a deep male choir for the melody itself which creates a terrific sound of impending danger. Instruments are either from AKAI sample CD's or Roland JV-1010. The drums are from an Alesis QS6.1

Very true to Matt Gray's dark brooding sound - I love it!
Sinister! Classic!
I absolutely love this tune! Deliciously sinister (the choir is indeed very well chosen). Reminds me somehow of the John Carpenter style (simple notes/melody but terribly efficient!)
Love it. It has that industrial, terminator like drone that spells trouble is on the way... Atmospheric stuff, and the stereo effects do your head in!
Superb!

Thank you Chris. Thank you for not destroying an absolute classic piece from Matt. The original tune was deep and atmospheric, and this tune is done in the style Matt may have wanted to do but couldn`t due to c64 limitations. The male monks borrowed from Enigma really sharpen and highten the density to the Nth degree. The tune is on my playlist and in my MP3 player, and there`s no higher recommendation than that. Keep it up.

It extends the Matt original to another level. Vendetta is one of the tune you listen for hours because of its gloomy atmosphere
