Q: What scares you? A: Freddy Kruger

I heard this recently on the Legacy Music Podcast and knew I needed to take a shot at it. One of the creepiest 8-bit songs out there.

Love the combination of the smooth guitar, long cymbal rides, and the crunchy crunchy bass synth.

I just listened to the original – you nailed it, in letter and in spirit, translating the 8-bit into the present. It's a very spare, foreboding song, and you capture that. Well done!!

This is ace, I wonder if the original composer will ever hear it!

As someone who likes old school game music but tends to stay away from the horror genre, I'm really glad I listened to this! The guitar is great, and I especially like the effects of the echoey cymbals and varying sounds of the sustained bass line.
