Superb arrangment. When listening to something as good as this, it makes you realise how talented the original musicians were. The blending of Myth's main & game end themes here is sensational!
Even though sounding a bit dated, overcomes this limitation with great production.
Cheesy arrangement, cheap instruments!
@ omorca: you had to be in a bad mood when you rated this masterpiece...
Nothing cheesy about it at all, excellent quality throughout. Oh and added to my collection ;)

Well, a typical Markus Schneider-Orchestral arrangement, but it works well !!
The arrangment is very clever in itself and the sounds are well choosen.
Only the bass frequencies are a bit too much for my ears, but that's a question of taste.
Put ya hands up in the air, Markus ;)

This sounds like (end credits from) a movie. The french horn/clarinet at 4:05 reminds me of John Williams, maybe from Far and Away. Partially it also reminds me of Raphael Gesqua's (Audiomonster) Amiga module The War.

Unfortunately I've never heard Jeroen Tel's original music before, so I can't judge on nostalgic, but the the different themes from several SIDs (isn't it?) melt together very nicely into a 5+ minute musical landscape. Very pleasing!

Well. Quickly said, although its not *entirely* myth this is my favorite Myth cover up to date, at least the most original...

Smoothly blended with Supremacy doesnt make this cover any worse. Both the originals are great, and this cover picks up everything that is worth to love in both of them.

This is the second 'blended' Myth cover I have heard, and the other (Glyn R Brown) are great as well (well worth a download), but in Glyn's version, myth does not play a central role (its more about Antiriad).

Anyway, its well worth the download.

As markus becomes more and more adept at being orchestral and thus his work behind the scene is beginning to show more and more within his remixes. This has much of what orchestral is all about great orchestral instruments and dramatic and then softer sections. Markus has come along way from when he first made his mark on remix64 and continues to improve with every arrangement. Although he has still someway to go the signs are good and at this rate if he continues as he is we will be treated to some magnificent work within a 6 months to a year. As for the tune there's little wrong with it, apart from maybe the ending which i feel could have been stretched a little more as it does finish a little instantanious.

Good work here, and a worthy contender for the top 10.
