First of all I want to say a big thank you for reaching 30k subs! This should be a celebration, and it is, but it's also bittersweet as what comes is now the end of Dark Souls, and the end of my time remixing it.
This is my final Dark Souls remix. I didn't think it would affect me as much as it has. Coming up with the idea for this remix was one thing but to actually do it and think about my time with the series has left me both sad and yet hopeful. Remixing something new and revisiting/updating some remixes from the past felt very right, and something of a thank you to everyone who enjoyed those when they were released. I feel like I've done everything I can with this series, this release marks my 25th release between the Souls games and Bloodborne. Now that Dark Souls is over I think it is also time for me to stop with it. Don't get me wrong, whatever Fromsoft does in the future I'm pretty sure that I will want to remix the music from those games. Will there be a Dark Souls 4 one day? If there is, I shall return to it.
I made this decision because I have less time to think about doing remixes. Recently I accepted to write the soundtrack for the game 'The Iron Oath' http://www.theironoath.com/
(I'll be releasing music and news on its kickstarter within the next few months) and I have other projects I'd also like to work on which I hope to reveal someday soon. With this remix released I can start thinking about releasing all my Souls/Bloodborne remixes on iTunes/Spotify etc and I'll need to commission an artist for that. I'd like to have that happen within the next two months.
I want to thank you all for the amazing support you've given me with these remixes, original albums and music in general. I am very lucky to be in the position I am in right now and it's something I will not take for granted. So much in life is just luck or a product of the moment, and making the right connections, then the rest is about how much you want it. I want to thank EpicNameBro as without him I have no idea if I'd even still be doing these Souls remixes, I tweeted him 'Epitaph for Boletaria' on a whim and he liked it enough to retweet and use it in his videos. He would continue to use my music in his videos, as well as 'Kindle the Soul' in his From the Dark playthrough which was excellent. I'd like to thank VaatiVidya too as he basically turned what was something more of a hobby into more of a job, his shoutout to my Bloodborne inspired 'Borne in Blood' album provided me so much exposure, he also used my music a lot in his videos. Without these kickstarts I'm not entirely sure what I'd be doing right now, but I am eternally grateful that they and the Souls community have wanted me to keep writing this music. And I want to thank Yuka Kitamura, her music really was a breath of fresh air particularly around Dark Souls 2's DLC and onwards. I have the pleasure to speak with her and share music and I'd love to work with her on something one day in any capacity. Of course I have to thank Fromsoft and Miyazaki for creating these incredible games, there's really not been a community like this and I hope it continues to stay strong for as long as it can. Another person I must absolutely thank is Shnabubula who has always supported my music (his channel https://www.youtube.com/c/S...
) and has always been the encouragement that helps me be more excited about the music I make.
This has been a long description haha but I felt it was important to get that all out. Let's end on a bright note! E3 is in 2 months time and Fromsoft had nothing to show last year, it's very possible they'll announce their new titles this year! That's really exciting and I'm looking forward to what they do next. I'd go nuts for Bloodborne 2, I'd actually be pretty depressed that I didn't get to work on that if it is real haha but it is what it is. I'm mostly hoping for something fresh that plays like a Souls or Bloodborne game, perhaps rooted in horror but I know whatever it is, it'll be great. I will keep putting content on this channel that I want to do so I hope you'll come back each time. I promise, if you have any interest in me as a composer then whatever I release should be something you'll enjoy. So please, I hope you enjoy this final Dark Souls remix and I'll be back soon with something new. Cheers everyone!
