It's a crazy world we live in. So much anger, so many people looking for drama anywhere they can find it. But maybe, if we put our minds to it, we can rise above it, to a place where the skies are clear...

==

So this one turned into a chiptune. Nobody was more surprised than me. In its former life this was a snarling, angry metal track by the name of Eclipse - I'm not really sure why, but the name popped into my head as I was writing the lyrics and it stuck.

For those of you who've been following the Dark Days story thus far, our hero spent the previous track coming to terms with his loss; he's now trying to move on, but the world has a way of getting in your face when you're just trying to get by. Eclipse dealt with the frustration and anger that tends to ensue in such situations.

Nowadays I have a lot less drama personally directed at me... but, on the other hand, the Internet has really taken up the slack. Everywhere I look these days I can find endless swarms of people angry about something or other, and if they don't have anything in particular to be angry about they're damn well going to invent something.

And it's really easy to get sucked into all that stuff. Reading passionate blogs and editorials, watching heartfelt videos, following the latest news to see what we should be angriest about today.

Like Admiral Ackbar says, it's a trap! The challenge before us, starting afresh each day, is to find a way to rise above it all - or be sucked down into the mire with so many others...

Enjoy, and rise above!

Yes! Rise above!

For a "chiptune" this has a world of depth and richness. Your sense of layers, tone combos, and arrangement is topnotch. Brilliantly fresh sounding.

I'm loving the outcomes of the remodeling of those old pieces. A cool way of repurposing ideas.

@becwil: Thanks! Yep, this is a real labour of love. This music has been kicking around in my head for almost twenty years now. The challenge, but also the fun, of Brighter Days is to find new ways to hear old music which simultaneously respect where it came from but also offer something new. I didn't want to make a rubbish version of the metal album I've been living with for two decades, and that's been a helpful spur to keep me from falling into routine or taking easy ways out...

Cool driving piece, hard grooving
very much enjoyed
