“When conceptualizing Shell Shocked, I wanted to capture what I had imagined as a hard rock sound in the music of the original game,” said album director Kyle “KyleJCrb” Crouse, who headed up Shell Shocked with an accomplished group of OC ReMixers and Dwelling of Duels veterans. “Despite having a heavy rock and metal influence, the album is packed with variety, with arrangement styles ranging from power metal, punk, progressive synth, glam metal, jazz fusion, blues rock, funk, and even some Vanilla Ice-inspired rap rock.”

3 weeks ago, my old FTP failed me. I started using Dropbox and the files were being streamed/downloaded so much that Dropbox removed the public linking functionality temporarily. Kyle set me up with a FTP account for KNGI’s site so now I’ve gone through and reuploaded all the previously Dropboxed ROC and TT podcasts from the past 3 weeks. Go forth and download, and thanks everyone for listening!
