Not my favorite SID tune but this f*cking ROCKS!!
Great shredding!
Awesome! The solo part starting at 2:10!!! Such amazing flow! Your precision is beyond human, Vaggelis! |m|
Pretty wicked remix
WOW! Just WOW! Superb skills.:)
One of my most favourite SID’s of all times (amongst others). Not a fan of Metal but this is an exception. Adding extra(! ) bonus points for staying true to the (sacred) original. When you think it has reached its peak, he steps up a notch. Amazing work!
Nice metal version of a SID classic - plenty of thundering guitars and double bass drums to help it along. Nice end outro too!
Amazing skills
This one kicks major ass. Not my fav SID tune at all but done with this awesome playing skill... Wow!
This roooooocks!!!
Noice!
Wow this is probably one of the hardest SID track to mixer and you did it perfectly. I'm really impressed by the overall skill and techniques. Excellent work!
"Doom music kicks in" moment
Wicked remix! Don't worry about omoroca. He is just a jealous and immature child.;-)
Vaggelis strikes again with some kick-ass metal. Nice :)

I saw Vaggelis' name pop up and I was already excited. Then I listened to his remix and I was ecstatic. ROC=K ON! 🤘 What skills on the guitar! Also, nice touch with the additional choir.

And that surprise outro at the end in Greek folk music style - I almost fell out of my chair when I first heard it. 😂 What a great idea! 😃👍 Now I am wishing for an entire remix in that style!!!

Yeah ok this deserves a full review. Ghost'n Goblins is probably one of the most recurring song coming from the past to my mind. I really lost hours trying to beat the game and, of course, there was no save progress on the C64, so I listen to the title track an insane amount of times. I really liked the atmosphere created by the SID and since the firsts I listen to every remix of the track. I found them really good but they lacked that atmosphere. Vaggelis remix is instead enhancing that. The first time I listen the it I felt the urgency to turn my old friend on, load the game and try, once again, to beat it. I consider this an outstanding success. So the technical part. Opening is theatrical and it immediately draw a line to the rest of the track. Instruments and parts are really cured except maybe for a little drop at 1:25 (I'm still asking me if I like it or not), then the rhythm takes off to the epic level of guitar at 2:10. The track won't leave you rest, with chorus additions and increasing climax, until the last part that is a complete surprise. LaLa says that it remembers Greek , but I feel it as balkans (better Romanian): the perfect place for Ghosts and Goblins.
