Since 1983, the psych-rock band Ozric Tentacles has been kicking out crazy beats and rocking us hard. Since their start in London’s clubs, they’ve moved around and about further spreading the joy of their music. Now, after 23 albums spanning nearly two decades, they’ve moved into Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. The file’s author, Monsquaz, has taken one of their newest songs, “Kick Muck”, and made it the game’s duel and main menu music. Not a huge mod, but nice nonetheless.
The song is upbeat and lively, very reminiscent of techno but with guitars and drums and no computerized stuff. I feel it makes for an excellent dueling experience, especially since the hum of the sabers blends well with the bass and the guitar. Every swing seems to only be accentuated by the music, while at the same time enhancing the music itself, almost like some sort of lightsaber symphony. It’s as if the band created this song solely for this purpose. At 5 minutes and 19 seconds, it is a little long, so don’t expect to hear the song in its entirety while dueling, but keep in mind that the longer you go the more exciting it gets. I imagine it would probably be really good for migration dueling, since that tends to take a while if done well. If you’re a fan of the artists or are looking for something a little more upbeat to give you that edge you need, give it a shot.
