Song of the Week 2: 'Legend of the Snake' by Reuben Kee
Song of the Week returns for the second time with another arrangement from OverClocked ReMix (http://www.ocremix.org/). This one is from Metal Gear Solid, called Legend of the Snake, by Reuben Kee. Reuben Kee died in a boating accident only 2 months after I joined the OCR community on the forums (http://www.ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=13286&highlight=Reuben) (http://www.ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=13320&highlight=Reuben). He has some truely amazing music and excellent piano skills. The song page for this remix can be found at http://www.ocremix.com/remix/OCR01322/ and to listen to this song go to http://ocrmirror.org/Metal_Gear_Solid_LegendoftheSnake_OC_ReMix.mp3. I love the piano at the beginning and the intensity that builds into several recognizeable themes for those who've played Metal Gear Solid before. I have actually not played any Metal Gear games except for Metal Gear Solid Mobile on my cell phone. Still this remains an epic piece, another one of my favorites. Excellent stuff.
