There are few things more awesome than chasing someone down with a motorcycle while wielding a sword. As soon as this project was announced I knew I had to try arranging this song. I ended up taking several creative liberties with it because it was so much fun to jam along to… I used a lot of reverb and panning because it seems like such a surreal, intense event to me, in a way. I’m very grateful to be a part of this project, many thanks to Sebastian and Matt for all their hard work! Also, thanks to Charles Ritz, David Guthrie, Shane Dobbie and Tom Barone for their critique and encouragement!
