Title: Thraddash - Culture 19
Remix Pack: 3 - The Ur-Quan Hierarchy
Track #: 6
Length: 2:14
Remixed by: Espen Gätzschmann and Tore Aune Fjellstad
Original written by: Riku Nuottajärvi
Remix of: THRAD.MOD
Comments: Quite possibly the coolest theme from the original game, the Thraddash showed Riku at his finest. We wanted to blend the new Thraddash remix in with the victory ditty made by Tore, so we made it somewhat tribal, and we added the guitars that the Thraddash have been practically begging for since Star Control 2 was first released. This is probably our most faithful remix in the Ur-Quan Masters project.

Simply awesome. I listen to this in my car, and this is a must-show for everyone I give a ride. And the best of all, they always goes "wow!".

Definitely a superb piece of work here, my fav!

Wow. This one was freakin' good too. I'm not fond of all the rmeixes, but some are really good, I must admit. This one is a winner too.

The only problem with this one is that it isn't longer! :)

I'll be honest .. I really don't like most of your re-mixes, but THIS one. IS. AWESOME.

Well done!

Nice song~~~

Wow very nice.
This was the most memorable track from the game and you made it even better.
Very nice job.

Wow. Now this is Thraddash unleashed.

ok...how in hell u can mix music this good??! This is too good to be real :D

"It's time to kick some asses!" would be the leitmotiv for this remix. Truly awesome!

March 28th, 2006 - 20:01:26

Fantastic. I already liked the orginal but this beats everything.

February 27th, 2006 - 18:43:13

Yeah, baby! If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

This one is fantastic. If anything, I'd boost the guitars in the mix, maybe make 'em scream a little more to compliment the raw aggression of the Thraddash riff, but that's a minor critique at best. At first I missed the snare as well, but the tribal drums REALLY grew on me, especially as I talked to the Thraddash with this blaring in the background.

A fine piece of work overall! Great job!

Shit this is excellent, the tribal drums are a good touch, the softish interludes suit the sci fi nature of the game. The guitars could be a little more driven, aggressive perhaps, as the orginal really reflected the brutality of the Thraddash.

After listening both tracks carefully, i think that this is the better one. I really like the guitars.

Well, after listening to both this and the original again, I've changed my mind. This is an awesome remix and a big improvement.

October 27th, 2005 - 18:34:39

Faithful to the original, but better! Very nicely done.

Excellent update of the original. Definitely more powerful without straying too far from the original tune.

March 22nd, 2005 - 21:26:42

Well -- other than missing the glorious snare fille from the original, I'd say this works. But, I was definitely looking forward to hearing an updated version of that snare.

February 1st, 2005 - 23:10:32

I think it's great.

Great remix of the original, which was already my favorite. As others have said, it's nice to see a non-techno/trance song in the set. It's still perhaps too soft for the personality of the Thraddash, but I really appreciate the fact that it doesn't deviate entirely from the original.

Solid track. Sounds like Iron Maiden meets the Ur-Quan Masters. Good to hear a metal-based track instead of the usual techno-junk.

It's smurfy. Makes me want to dress in black and have angry sex with a piece of Ikea furniture.

Well, this song joins my playlist with the urquan and vux remixes. It isn't as good as them nessisarily but it's good music none the less. Realy fits them well (considering their secondary weapon). It has that sounds sorta fast without being realy fast. I rather like the switch to a deaper guitar sound considering their physical size and skin, a highpitched guitar wouldn't be so nice. I especialy like how true it is to the original theme considering how often I heared the original theme.

I didn't like this one very much. The guitar samples feel more subtle and ominous than screaming-in-your-face lke the original. With less understated guitar samples, it would have been perfect

Correction: The team member's name is Tore, not Toren. :) Also, the drums are indeed played by a real person, but have been slightly altered digitally.

Sampo V, the guitars have been played by real player. It's our team member Toren. Drums aren't real played, but personally I must say they are very well done.

Good remix, but could have been a little better. The song itself has nothing to complain about, but the samples aren't very "sharp". This could be easily fixed if a real band played this song.

So, someone with proper equipment, playing skills and few buddies, volunteer yourself! :)

Easily my favorite in the third remix pack. The overdriven guitar is PERFECT for the Thraddash, and the toms in the percussion add that touch of tribal feel. This song is chock-full of cigar-chomping, afterburner-igniting badassery.

July 2nd, 2004 - 14:39:35

I like the subtlety to this remix. You kept the original slow tempo. Very laid back (compaired to ringwraiths that is).

July 2nd, 2004 - 04:53:03

That reminds me of the time Reeunk stubbed out his cigar in the afterburner fuselage. Harrrrrg!

Superb, that's all I gotta say!
