I miss the trade-mark rhythm-pattern of the original one. However, menacing and I would choose it for a soundtrack of any of my life periods as I would choose the race as a role-model. I mean, never ^_^
This means, suits for the Ilwrath.
The panning glitches sometimes and the end of the track is ruined (most probably by the rendering).

I disagree totally with the mostly negative remarks here, this track is perfect for the Ilwrath. It gives the feeling of sitting in a cold, dark, slimy, alien dungeon, a few minutes away from being sacrificed to Dogar and Kazon, all the while hearing the screams of the poor wretches being skinned and dismembered on the altar ... the composers obviously have a good understanding of the nature of the Ilwrath.

I quite liked it. The creepy rhythm was very effective, and the sudden high pitched electronic noises actually made me jump once or twice. But I do think that if you hadn't seen the Ilwrath and heard their original theme tune before you might think they were somewhat campy sixties villains rather then a primal terror for all ages.

It sounds......well, the water sound seems out of place, idk. I like it the way it was.

I have to agree... I didn't like the 2nd remix, and this one is not as good as that one. The hard electronic parts come out of nowhere and don't sound all that great... I think it needs to be darker and more organic.

This really needs some grinding sinister guitars, and the melody in the original that inspired the dreadful feeling of something crawling up to you in the dark needs a more powerful presence. Too electronic I think.

Overall a good remix, but strays too far from the original. The drums are too fast and upbeat. The original had slow menacing percussive blasts that seemed to better suit a race as dripping with evil as the Ilwrath are.

Great job on this one. I mean it is GREAT. Just in general though all the remixes are realy tecno couldn't there be just some cool clasic rock style.

I like it much better than the original release. The Ilwrath sound much more evil. Good job!

Pretty good on it's own. Only complaints are the scratch is a bit anoying (loud) at about 1 minute and the pitch for an instrument is painful near the end of the song. That is if the music is turned up which most remixes for UQM have me do as they are good. It's not too anoying for me to leave in though :) Overall it's quite fitting in the game

I like it. Much more menacing than the previous remix.

It sounds like you modulated the "record scratch" samples a bit, right? I really like this one, as it really sounds like the sort of music that giant evil five-legged spiders hell-bent on destroying you might listen to.

The distortion is a lot of fun.

Same, it's damn nice!
