Oh yeah another YM ROCKERZ compil ! What is the price ? Free ??? Oh now I
understand why all majors told us they can't sell cds ! For all chiptunes
lovers like us, it is so cool to get such nice music for free. Even if people
around told us we are mad, that dis noise is ugly, we still love it !!!
It's been a couple of years already since the YM rockerz started to entertain
us with some compils. Their new opus is called called Warryorz.
The sounddemo begin with a beautiful pic of guy sending a personnal message to
MAJORZ as can be seen above. Btw it was painted by Timbral of DHS !
The main screen includes an old Atari VCS painted by Exocet. When you select a
song, the face of the composer (also pixellised) appears in the TV screen. The
menu are the scrolltext use the same handling as in the other YM rockerz
Let get a fast review of the tunes :
TAO : The compilation uses the name of his tune. As always nice and fast
melodies always featuring Tao's very own style and strange noises.
LOTEK : My favorite one ! This music really rocks !!! It begins with some
drums and silent.. Then the music grows and differents beats come.
TRIMBAL : Nice melody, reminds me of those great game action tunes like
turrican ones :)
DMA SC : Herrrr sounds like a DMASC sound :) As always it is pleasant at the
first listen. Great melody, great sound.
CRAZY Q : Nice techno like tune. With a nice melody. Is he the brother of
scanvenger ? I think he has the same style and really nice !
GWEN : Heavy beginning. And then the music really sounds like a old good
chiptune with sid effects added !
DAMO : This music really rocks too :) including some beat breaks, quick
restart and some speedy melodies.
505 : Very soft music reminds me of old games music like great gianna sisters.
Damned time is going to fast :( There is this sadness and happyness
STU : Uses some sampled sound for the best effect. Really fast and heavy. Some
good beat and the mix of the sampled beat and the chipsound makes all a
pleasure :) This is really Dynamite !
BS2000 : Also a soft music.. It's been a long time since I didn't hear a tune
like this. Are you sure it was composed this last time ? This pleasant
music sounds like the great old adventure games.
Once again, this compilation brings us the best of YM. All styles are present for
all of us. As for me, it is still a pleasure to continue to listen to some new
compositions. And if your wife or family really don't understand why you
spent your time torturing your ears with this strange noise, instead of buying
the latest britney's CD, just pump up the sound :)
