    That intro riff that goes on for the first minute or so in Beneath the Mire? For the longest time it always reminded me of something, but I couldn't think of what.

    It reminds me of the soundtrack to the Nintendo 64 game, GoldenEye. The riff just sounds like the same kind of thing that would be on there.


    Maybe it's because I've been playing GoldenEye recently, I dunno.



    Anyone agree, or am I just crazy?

    The keyboard part in the middle of Baying of the Hounds reminds me of Goldeneye

    I know this is gay...BUT. The song "Angels Don't Kill" by Children of Bodom always reminded me of Goldeneye. Like the main riff...when I heard it I was like...hmm Goldeneye.

    The Ayreon song on THE "Day 3: Pain" has an intro that sounds like something from 007 too.

    Haha, now that you mention it it does sound a bit like it, I loved that game so much, could never do Falility in under 1:08 or whatever it had to be.

    yeah, it has some far east influences from traditional indian music, i think, something like closure from damnation. Anyway that song has the most amazing solo that i've ever heard... when per and mikael are playing synchronized... beautiful...

    And the first melody lead in Reverie/Harlequin Forest reminds me of the theme from the swedish movie "Jönssonligan"

    Something from early "Black Sabbath" or Kashmir "Led Zeppelin".

    The intro of Beneath the Mire reminds me of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

    It does sound eastern-ish. And Goldeneye 64 is great.

    I think you are able to compare all those songs just because the sound, the instrument are pretty much the same. But the thing about Golden Eye and Beneath The Mire made me laugh.

    Yeah, the intro is influenced by Middle Eastern themes. I love the intro melody.

    Sigh...I am gonna miss Martin Lopez middle eastern drum influence...I wonder if we will hear anything like that again....
