"Bottle Groto is, I believe, a variation on the dungeon theme from ALTTP, mixed with the regular LA cave music, which makes for a somehow bland source.
But boy oh boy: Artem Bank here sure knows how to raise the bets and turn odds in his favor.
While the track starts up relatively slow and dark, fear not, for as soon as you hear the sweet sound of the fender, greatness is about to be bestowed upon your ears.
And sure enough, that bluegrass rickenbacker style guitar comes from nowhere to kick you in the nut and get you to respect its authoritah!
This totally unexpected twist gives the arrangement a kind of rebellious feel that would almost make Link look like a cool kid... if he wasn't totally tripping about some whalefish with wings hidden in a giant ostrich egg that he have to wake up using the Kontakt 4 library. ;D
This right here is the most badass Bottle Grotto has ever sounded. Loved this trash, 'down in the mud' take on the source.
Very visceral and masterfully crafted arrangement."
