From First to Last (AROK12 tribute mix)
This Last Ninja medley was arranged for our live gigs, with an effort of executing it a little different way, venturing through all the parts. If goal was reached or not - you decide ;)
We tried to keep the soundscape as close to the live sound as possible, recorded with the exact rig that we use onstage, including NP's old Laney amp and Werdy's Korg Karma. At the time of recording our drummer-case hadn't been completely solved and lots of in-process modifications needed for the final form of this remix so we did the plastic way this time, it's a Toontrack VSTi. The intro announcer is our good old Uncle Sam/Reciter 64. Mixing/mastering was done with an SSL Duende DSP. Extremely cold summer weather was supported by Global Warming Incorporated. No bytes and pixels were harmed during the production.

My only minor gripe about the remix is some of the lead sounds - I think they are a bit too thin and effect-less, and sound a touch out-of-place with the rocky backing. More reverb or vibrato, or fatter lead instruments would've helped.
But otherwise, just WOW!
