Man, I sure do love me some metal gear. I also love metal. And metal... But mostly metal though. I also love me some chiptune, as you well know. It was only a matter of time before I combined them all... except for the metal part. It's hard to put metal in metal.

The whole thing was arranged by ear, (that means no MIDI files,) and I used basic65 for all but the drums and the sub bass. I also arranged the ENTIRE THING in one pattern, because why not?



Memories broken
The truth goes unspoken
I’ve even forgotten my name

I don’t know the season
Or what is the reason
I’m standing here holding my blade

A desolate place
Without any trace
It’s only the cold wind I feel

It’s me that I spite
As I stand up and fight
The only thing I know for real

There will be blood-shed
The man in the mirror nods his head

The only one left
Will ride upon the dragon’s back

Because the mountains don’t give back what they take
Oh no
There will be blood-shed
It’s the only thing I’ve ever known

Losing my identity
Wondering have I gone insane
To find the truth in front of me
I must climb this mountain range
Looking downward from this deadly height
And never realizing why I fight

Hi, I'm Kit, also known as Kerosyn, and I make angry noises into slightly prettier angry noises, then I try to tell stories with them.
