Yes, deserved winner. Imho Slimex' tune beats this one in concern of "epicness" - if that exists ;-) ... but the composition here is just unprecedented. Relistened to some of the compo tunes and this is just outstanding. Especially the two-voice parts and that drum-/bass-figure before going into half-time. Really feels like listening to an all-time classic.

Zirias: no worries, I'm aware that I usually write rather derivative or unsurprising diatonic melodies, and in this case once I got the strong Turrican / Huelsbeck feel going, I thought not to disrupt it :)

Sorry for the relatively "low" vote .. I think this one is technically perfect, indeed. It's just not entirely my style -- I /loved/ the triolic ritardando at ~1:35 and I think it's a shame there aren't more surprising elements like that. But apart from that, I wished I could get the SID to produce a sound like you do!

Really sweet tune. Love the harmonies and the melody. Proper job, Cadaver. Hyvä Suomi! Hope to come up with something myself for this competition...

I want to shoot giant quadrupedal robots with pink toothpaste while flying over a early 90's pixelly japanese forest when listening to this tune. Great!

Really great tune, excellent composition. I agree with Shine, it looks like is coming directly from Turrican!

I don't know why, but i imagine that this is a game tune from Turrican. ;) Very good melody so far! 9/10 :)

Awesome rastertime! The tune rocks too. Sounds more full featured than usually for low cycle players. Guess I should get some musicians to do Ninja Tracker tunes for my parts.

This song got started by the first part melody playing in my head insistently. I wasn't sure of whether I ripped off an actual Huelsbeck song :)

Really like it, the first part could be the theme song of a tv series.

Love it, long lasting with the right tempo changes that makes it loop forever. Already listening it for 10 minutes now.

Epic. Must let it loop a little LONGER/more often before voting but can already say this is the veeery good rockin stuff we are used to expect from you. Could imagine this as well for shooters but especially beatems.

Very cool! Though I only listened for 7 minutes instead of 10 ;-) But if I'm not wrong it seems to loop after 4/5 mins.
I really love that "clean" C64 metal style. And I prefer good melodies over fancy instruments.
