Rock on!
The guys sure knows how to play that guitar :)
Very impressive
Q: What do you wanna do with your life? A: I wanna ROCK!!!
/me does Beavis impression..... Kick ass!!!
This is simply superb. It's kept all the emotion of Zoids and made it into a rock epic at the same time, with wonderfully crunching guitars and lots of neat touches - especially the piano interlude in the middle.
The Sumppmeister at his best! This is just sooo heavy!
Is it cool or what? Sumppi rulez!:)
Fantastic stuff, I really like the way the guitar chug messes with the major/minor feel, very raw and provoking mix.
I must admit, this is one of my favorite remixes of all time! Already liked your first Zoids, but this tops everything. (Drums sound far better than those of the prerelease-version of your second approach)
Great remix... But I prefer your first remix version of zoids...
Faaantastic rock tune! If "Zoids" is ment to rock this is HOW it has to rock!
: Can not prove the hype. The essence of the music has not been captured. My soul denies to like it. The original remix got a yellow
Great production quality, doesn't quite capture the atmosphere of the original for me
Summpi.. Gooooooooooood!
Warning, do not listen to this Tune. Once you've listen to this perfect piece of re-creation, all your past top tunes will be sound thin and hazzy. Really FaNtAsTiC :()
Very Nice!:)
Normally I dont listen to this genre, but this is just professional music
I like this one!
Excellent production and it definately ROCKS!
Very nice!
An impossibly good remix, A standard everyone should aspire to.
Much improved. Nice one...
As someone said it doesnt capture the feel of the original sid.. But heck do I care? ;) It s just great the way it is :)
Very deeeeep and _very_ well done!! :-D Great version of an oldschool CULT track!
Zoids given an excellent rock overhaul. Very sweet integration of the original SIDtune!
I'm not a rocker - but it's hard to fault this superb tune. Very classy - and hugely listenable
Super effort, great drum, great guitar playing, great mastering, great!
Professional to the hilt.... Not my type of music, but still can hardly fault it! Damn you!
Not the best zoids rmk
Wow - great rendition! I'd like to hear this again!
Rich :)
I hate those military drums. And I hate these guitars. Both make this one unlistenable for me. Cannot vote any worse than Average due to the otherwise good effort, though.
Hell yeah! This one rocks! Thumbs up for the guitars and the mastering!
Zoids has been mixed a helluva lot, and this surely is top of the pile, Led Zeppelin could not have done this any better!
Clean, Clear and grunty.. Improves on the original you did in every aspect, one of my favourites out of my entire remix collection. Great stuff.
Superbe
It's something I really like. Badass tune \m/,
Strumm strumm yeah
It could be better
Heavy as like as a real Zoid! Great!

(original review at vgm remix)

Does anyone remember the zoids? them HUGE great big toys that moved and flashed and beat the shit out of each other?.. great wasnt they..

Now to be honest the game attached to this tune was crap.. it was unweildy it was confusing and it was very very hard and the only thing that puts it in the hall of fame for c64 users is the tremendous soundtrack created by the one and only rob hubbard.. and we've all heard of him aint we.

so I come to this remix.. one knowing the tune VERY WELL.. 2nd knowing the person that wrote this tune quite well too.. and knowing the talent he has already shared with us..and its no suprise that this remix is absolutely awesome.

Starting off with the original sid 1st line and a decent military drum sound.. this tune doesnt take very long to get warm.. deep and powerful guitar strokes making your bass bins shake the raw power unleashed instantly upon your feeble computer.. this mix has teeth and its baring them for all too see... the guitar work througout this tune is exceptional.. it has real life and body.. it has feeling its own virtual personality.

the drum work.. considering its done by a proffesional drummer.. what can you say about it?.. perfect.. basswork.. perfect.. hell even the synths are perfect. look for clipping.. notice that?... cant find it.. look for a flaw here.. go on get your fine tooth comb out.. try and find one cos i gaurantee you wont.

there is very little i can say to fault this.. which im sure you just noticed.. the piano work is beautiful.. nuff said.

download this and dont look back.

Hey, Zoids-remixers: Here is the point to stop your WIP-remix of zoids, coz this could'nt be done much better! Definitely not really my fav style, but i'm very flexible about music and THAT's how zoids/anchestors must sound! Hard and deep rockguitars with smashing drums. Rob Hubbard and Larry Fast sure will be amazed about this excellent interpretation! Great work, sumppi!
