The playlist is sorely lacking in enough Metal Sonic tracks. Especially since it isn’t all Startdust Speedway. So for a little kick-off to Metal Sonic’s new sound, how about you tackle his All-Star Theme from Racing Transformed?
And today’s track!
This is essentially a remixed version of Metal’s theme from Sonic 4 Episode II, just with a better quality mix. I think all of the padding and inner harmonies really work better with this higher quality mix—you really get to hear the quality of the chord, especially at the beginning of the loop (which is my personal favorite part). There’s a nice melodic use of the flat-II, which brings a darker color to the entire mix. The drums are pretty stoic, but it’s a beat that reflects itself to the feel of the entire game, and a racing game in general. The sweeping synths lying underneath are really neat as well!
