Skaven created a very special and impressive atmosphere in this one.

Love it, one of my favorites by Skaven. Hell, I recorded it playing back in MT and posted on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gx2TAYkIIQ :D Awesome song.

I listened to this music some time ago, but I thought it needs getting used to. But after a while it got better and better.
Great tune with so much athmosphere and conception. Great composing and nice samples.

Incredible for how long I've had this in my playlist and never commented on it. "The Alchemist" is a spooky, impressive and massive soundtrack that could work really well in a videogame that's about an old castle or something. ^_^

wah! a great tune by Skaven; yet it sounds unusual, it's quite easy to recognize his style. a bit oriental, very mystical and with grrrrreat arpeggios - that's what this song is. though it didn't made it to a good place in MC5, it's surely worthy to be listened through.

                     The Alchemist - playing time 03:44

           Author's homepage: http://isis.yok.utu.fi/~skaven



         This song was my Music Contest 5 entry. However, it didn't
        make it to the top 20, so I'm releasing it now as it is - with
        the sample texts included, of course. :)

         This song was inspired by the stories of H.P. Lovecraft
        (hence the name). It is an addition to the series of
        attributed fantasy I seem to be doing from time to time.
         Vision-wise, you can imagine a diligent alchemist in
        a dark cavern, working his way closer and closer to the
        forbidden truths, until he invokes ancient evil beyond
        his control... Tho if you imagine something else when
        listening to this one, I'm not stopping you. :)


      About the samples

         The AlienAhh sounds mighty bizarre, doesn't it? Well,
        its history is even more such. I downloaded an "Ahhhhhh!"
        (said by a big hairy lummox digitized from Ren&Stimpy) off
        the Usenet and flanged it beyond recognition. Like the
        results? :)
         I've sampled most of the percussions myself off metal tape,
        this may explain the poor-ish quality - all I had to sample
        with was a Sound Blaster Pro. For the rest of the samples, most
        of the credit goes to NHP, Bruno and a couple of others who
        I'm not sure about whether they've ripped the samples
        themselves or not.



      About the patterns

         The climax-like chord transfer on patterns 23..24 is a rip-
        off. It was originally featuring in a totally bizarre organ
        song composed by a person who suffered from chronic schitzo-
        phrenia (contributing to his creativeness, I take it). I
        thought it was so cool I decided to put it in use myself -
        copying is sometimes a part of the learning process. My
        regards to him, whoever he was.
         You may also recognize the chord progression in patterns
        49-50, as it was used by Chris Franke in several parts of
        the Babylon 5 soundtrack; before that it was used in
        Tangerine Dream's 'Miracle Mile' soundtrack - however, Chris
        Franke - a former Tangerine Dream member himself - was not
        involved in the Miracle Mile project. Makes me wonder, did
        HE rip it too? :)


      What else, now....

         Well I hope you enjoy this little production. I'm signing
        off now.
