Noticed this around by the old submission site in x-sector, but they were playing the old black hole music! Whether it was part of the new soundtrack which plays by the rehydrator or just a little thing for enthusiasts I'm unsure, but still :P

Random question - anyone know where this came from? Does it belong to AT or taken from somewhere else?

Well, I assume this was taken from Duel: Live, an attraction in 2008-9 Scarefest that added live actors to Duel. It also changed the soundtrack to this. Taking this into consideration, the music belongs to Alton Towers, and was probably uploaded by someone who got access to the music file from the park.

Yeah, I knew it was from duel live, I was just wondering if it was made by them or if it was originally from something unrelated. (eg Scary Tales soundtrack was from a video game) :-)

Random question -asking for a friend. Does anyone know where I cloud find the commentary on Galactica, or on ride footage? All I can find is the clip of leaving the station the around the top of the lift hill! Thanks!

It won't be available to the general public, unfortunately. Alton Towers will be very protective of their VR footage to ensure it remains exclusive to the ride.

I've seen various short clips of the rest of the VR on media reviews, etc. I'm sure if you tried hard enough, you could piece together a lot of the VR with maybe a few gaps.

Mutiny bay has some new audio provided by the fantastic Nick Hutson, the music definitely feels more dramatic than the previous soundtrack, I will leave a link here... :) Be sure to give it a listen!

Nick Hutson has produced some absolutely great theme park soundtracks, and this is one of his best in my opinion! Great work Nick!

It's a good soundtrack, but I must say I have an undying love for the old one :)

I actually prefer this to the old one! Part of it sounds a little like last year's Towers Street Scarefest music which he did as well.

Ha! That'll be the contrary motion chromatic scale.

The music on Tower Street is good, but at the end of the day change it back to the old one as it's just better (for leaving the park)

Also the new Mutiny Bay music is fine...if a bit generic, but it just serves to fix what isn't broken and it is to be honest, a bit of a downgrade (it's still good music...just not as good as the old audio) if you were going to make new MB audio then couldn't you make something like thunder rock radio but pirate themed. Like have 1-2 pirate hosts talking inbetween pirate songs (Drunken Sailor, Blow The Man Down ect) and anouncing said songs as "New Hit singles" from made up pirate celebritys and inbetween that do "How to Talk Pirate" because that is still very good and the park would be poorer without it.

And while your at it, can you try and get Merlin to put the old pre Duel Gloomy Wood music back in GW?

This is kinda related. Does anyone have the sound effects for the Duel ride?
