Ok, this is just AMAZING. So many memories!! If we talk about the classics I would go for Sabrewulf, Fulgore, Orchid,Tj. If we talk about the new ones I feel Hisakos is soooo nostalgic!
In the end I voted Arbiters. The music is powerful and makes me feel I’m preparing myself for the battle, or also feels like the calm in the middle of the storm. Anyway, all are great! Thanks for loading this OP =)
I’ve said this about Atlas & Celldweller before, & it still holds IMHO, if you look at their themes like food, they would specialize in a particular ingredient, let’s say salsa. And that’s fine, but not all dishes go well with salsa. Mira’s theme for example, decent orchestral piece, but then there’s that damned electric horsefly buzzing around in the background. I’d compare that to having chicken alfredo with salsa on it. But with something like Eyedol’s theme, they made the mother of all enchiladas.
Came in expecting to vote Wulf or TJ, came out voting Maya. Those vocals were just so. damn. good
Other favorites of mine were definitely Wulf, TJ (that build up!), and Tusk. Tusk’s teally surprised me actually - it’s really, really good.
Raam’s was also surprisingly cool. And though I love her actual track, Kim Wu’s idle was just ok. Think using her KI2 theme there (or representing it more strongly) may have been a bit better.
All in all I really like both sets of composers though. Unlike a lot of others, I don’t think Atlas Plug and Celldweller turned in particularly worse music than Mick, though I will say my absolute favorite tracks are still Mick’s. Tusk and Kim’s themes come close for me though, and Arbiter’s is another particular favorite of mine.
