"Takeover of the 8-bit Synths"

Instruments: Guitar, Kit, Synths

Feel: Grooving, Humorous, Unnerving

This... uhh... hmm... let's call it 'experimental' piece starts out with vanilla guitar and rock drums, and gets progressively crazier as the 8-bit synths take over the piece. Maximum anarchy starts around the 3-minute point.

"Psychedelic Crater"

Instruments: Sitar synth, electronic drums and bass

Feel: Aggressive, Intense, Mystical

Harsh yet simple piece. The main theme was played with a wiimote, so don't expect too much expression! Extra interest kicks in at 1:35.
