kjorteo and I were talking about Nocturnal Rites' hysterical video for Avalon, and I said how much it reminded me of the stampede level for The Lion King on the Megadrive. On seeing that video again, I accidentally noticed that the second phrase of the background music is pure power metal, so I took it upon myself to do a version of it!
This song is a lot more complicated than I thought - it switches from 6/8 to 9/8 and back at the most unexpected moments and has three key changes in its short run time. There are three loops, and I experimented with little variations each time after a fairly straight conversion the first time. It was a nice chance to feature the new drums :)
