I always wanted to cover one of Kjell's strange, brewtal, scary and amusing SIDs. I just love his music. I consider him one of the most talented and strange-styled C64 composers ever. To me he is one of the most powerful inspirations to create C64 music since my return in 2009. Unfortunately I'm unable to tell him how I admire his music. Rest in Peace, bro'...

Dedicated to all the good people in my C64 group Hokuto Force.

It ROCKS!:-)
Absolutely Fabulous!
Great mix! Reaper represent!
You nailed it (again)! :) Is amazing.
... Aaaand the socially distanced one-man moshpit keeps moshing!<3
Quirky and usual SID tune, perfectly positioned in metal. Not usually my thing, but this is brutally brilliant
Absolutely marvellous, man! The Cry Baby 535Q goes perfectly with your lead guitar sound!
Awesome remix, Necropolo
OML, where are all these red smileys coming from?
