No. 3 - 99 Snakes: What a thrill
I made this track over a year ago and posted it to Soundcloud where it enjoyed a lot of attention and listeners. Unfortunately their copyright bots removed it and so I've decided to re-upload it today. It's especially appropriate considering that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain also released this week and by all accounts it is another masterpiece by Hideo Kojima, and probably his last.
This new re-mastered version is 3% sharper and faster than the last one and it's also punchier and more vibrant. The video pays homage to the opening cinematic from Snake Eater as well as the codec communication dialogue from the series. While The Twin Snakes is probably my favorite game in the series, the theme from Snake Eater is definitely the best one. I think it's Bond-ier than most James Bond themes and is a marvel of mood, atmosphere, and composition. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
