Music like Masugn / MDX's music for my game
« on: October 30, 2004, 09:40:12 pm »
Do you know any band that plays music that is very similar to what Masugn did, and for free - but without any lyrics?

In short, heavy and groovy Masugn-style music suitable for an action game I'm making. Here are their songs, so you know what I mean. These are perfect for the game, if only they didn't have the lyrics... I've tried editing out certain frequencies, but it didn't work well. Anyone?

I wonder if the Masugn people still have the original tracks, so they can just take out the lyrics?  That would be pretty awesome, but unlikely.

I'd like to find some music like that too...  Great game music is hard to find.  I'm often reduced to using MIDI's, but it doesn't really matter cause I have so damn many of them.

I asked Robert, and he doesn't have any backups or old lyric-less versions. :( He lets me use the music, though. But they're no good unless anyone finds a way to take away the lyrics, or comes up with a band that plays similar stuff. I'll try searching around the 'net.

Is there no possibility of Machinae Supremacy making new instrumental versions.

Robert said they don't have the time (and they nearly forced themselves into doing the Jets'n'Guns stuff). I won't be needing the music for yet another half a year or so, but doing instrumentals of old songs probably takes alot of time for them.

They should learn to make shadow replications.

That music isn't legally free. :P Plus it's from an already existing game.

I've searched for half an hour on Google, but can't find any bands that play what I want, and for free. I doubt anyone would let me use their music without paying for it - the only exceptions being bands like Machinae and Masugn. I can't find them, but they must be out there somewhere.

I could ask my friend and his death metal band if they could do some music, that is, if they have the time...

There should be a "free music archive" or something, with lists of bands that give away their music for free, with links to their homepage. maybe sorted by genre, rating, etc.

Hmmm...I've got around 600megs of free space on my home area here at NTNU (http://www.stud.ntnu.no/~thomasue/). The page already there looks horrible and will be deleted, but I wonder...might want to make such a page?

That sounds like a good idea, as long as enough people get to know about it. :)

VisionThing, you mean that MegaDokiX on this forum could remake the Masugn songs?

maybe not remake them, but I bet he could crack out some cool tunes for a game
