Very nice remaster of the theme I first heard on Youtube. Personally I felt the OST Nitrosparxx created back then was a little too whimsical and wasn’t what I had in mind, but I suppose the tone people sense in Ruby Quest is quite varied. To me, this track is a step in the right direction, however.
Thanks for the kind words friend!
Back then, I was merely a beginning composer, who was just figuring out how to use FL Studio and midi’s, so my music was a bit…stilted sounding and kind of static at times. Now I have a firm grasp on how to use this awesome program and finally I can get things to sound how I want them.
I’m so glad you like this track and this album so far!
Ah, this really takes me back. It was nearly three or so years ago, I was in my community college’s piano lab when I got the crazy inspiration to write some RubyQuest fan music. I believe I had written down two themes: first the theme for the series proper (“The Metal Glen”) and the second one became Red’s theme (“Just Kidding”). Perhaps its silly for me to feel so nostalgic about a little theme I wrote back in 2011, but regardless writing this felt like coming home from a long days journey.
But enough of me getting mushy over all that. As you know, this is the theme for Ruby and the entire story in general. The theme serving as a sort of somber elegy for the victims of the glen. I really like how well this came out. There’s no way I would’ve been able to pull this off in my old method of music writing. I’m ever so glad I’m finally capable of doing something I’ve wanted to do for awhile now. Hope you all enjoy!

Yeah, I uh…may have gone a little bit overboard with this one. But heck! This was damn fun to write.
So whether it was a post I saw, or perhaps it was one of horndfreak’s drawings or whatever, I for some reason got really hyped to write a fansong for everyone’s favorite, blood thirsty douchebag, Beelzemon (although this is technically about his bike, the Behemoth). Gotta say, I love how this came out! I really like the grungy, heavy feel of this little tune, and I especially love the little sample of the motorcycle. If i’m going to be honest, I think this has been the most effective use of a sample I’ve ever done (aside from that RubyQuest intro I made a week or so ago). But that’s just my opinion!
Hope you all enjoy!
