I had such a blast working on this theme! The original incorporates so many wacky melodies and non-melodic passages which really challenged me to try and re-create that on guitar.
A huge aspect about the original battle theme is that there's a lot of "behind the scenes" type of counterpoints happening behind the main melodies which I had to pick and choose wisely what I wanted to feature in my metal version because I didn't have as much sonic space in my version due to my huge rhythm guitars that I added. I felt like I had to use only the ones that needed to be there and I left a few behind and replaced tthem with my ownn riff ideas!
When we get into the main chorus part of the arrangement, that's when I had a blast laying down some crushing C# riffage and got to jam as hard as I could!
Overall I had a ton of fun working on this and I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it! Thanks so much for watching!
