about

It was established from the very beginning that this game would require multiple battle themes. It was important to me that they each feel different. This track started as a quick doodle that I called "emotional battle theme," where I was trying to take the arpeggio motif and give it some heart, almost as if you were fighting alongside a fallen comrade. I didn't initially intend for it to be fully developed into a usable in-game theme, but the guys liked it, so the work began.

It actually took some work to get the balance right, between the instrumentation of the arpeggios, the heavy hits, the pitch bends, and the general flow. Getting the core riffs to sound right between the detache strings and the dulcimer alone was a challenge. But, the end result works quite nicely... despite the cliche chord progression (which I didn't even realize was happening until late in the tune, heh).
