Once upon a time, I used to run back and forth shooting space-mercenaries in the face on a bridge between fortresses in outer space. And I thought "this music sure is good music for running back and forth shooting space-mercenaries in the face on a bridge between fortresses in outer space." And then 18 years later, someone asked for good music in old PC games, and I thought "Hey, wasn't there some good music that I used to run back and forth shooting space-mercenaries in the face on a bridge between fortresses in outer space to?" And there was!

And we all lived happily ever after. Except for the space-mercenaries.

Oh, you want me to talk about Foregone Destruction on a level deeper than "it makes my ear-holes happy"? Well, it's got notes in it. Really good notes. And some beats too. And... um clefs? That's a music thing, right?

That's surprisingly smooth listening for a track titled Foregone Destruction (this was a close one though).

Never heard Foregone Destruction before, but it's pretty good! Reminds me of Talvin Singh.

Tyrian is a sweet PC shooter that not enough people know about and it has a soundtrack filled with kickin' FM synth tunes. This one maybe kicks the hardest of them all, I do hope you will enjoy it. Vote Tyrian!

The main theme is from 0:00 to 2:55, not sure why that has a timestamp to start at 2:37. Actually, went and looked and this time I was able to find the main theme by itself.
