Story
Actually this is was my tribute to the BitLive Germany 2003 Competition. Therefore I wanted to make something special. Not a regular remix, but a remix in a mix. If you listen to the tune, you may notice that this track has kinda 2 parts. I liked the idea to make not a 100% 1:1 converted arrangement.
So I arranged the Thanatos part first and tried to use the same Instruments while I changed notes and added some other Instruments for the Other Part.

So far I only got nice comments on the Remix.

Thanks for your attention =)

Repepetititive!
Strange this tune is better when it stays away from Thanatos.
I'm with C64glen considering this one. It is much more impressive when you do your own stuff in the mix. Moreover, Thanatos theme is a little odd for me when it pops up :) Nice track, anyway!
Nice.

While I think it's safe to say Peacemaker's rather taken liberties with Hubbard's original (he himself describes it as a 'remix in a mix') this isn't immediately problematic. The piece's atmospheric and upbeat start made me think I was in for a quality, Chemical Brothers style, electronic remix, but around the half-way point, the entire flavour of the remix changes in a rather uncomfortable way. It becomes cleaner, and directly ports the original's lead, but in doing this, the track becomes fragmented and disjointed. This eventually gives way, again returning to the crunchy opening sound.

Therefore, while both parts of the remix are pretty well done in their own right, the piece comes off more like a medley than a 'whole' remix. In conclusion, good but flawed.

Peacemakers attempt at a chemical dance remix has actually worked out very well. Although there's not a great deal of Thanatos in here, the break where the thanatos tune is used is very welcome and seperates the tune nicely as it becomes more smooth from what is essantially a very agressive dance mix.

The original parts from this remix are also done very well, if maybe a little repetative. This will go down well in any nightclub and is also good for the home.

A very inventive way of tackling the thanatos, but because this is essentially an own tune with a snipit of Thanatos, purits will hate it. Those who welcome a little more diversity will enjoy this remix.
