My Turn to Roll | Critical Role Villains Cover

  • Published on Jan 17, 2020 veröffentlicht
  • Hello, Internet! A small inspiration caught me and I decided to make a villainous rendition of the Vox Machina Animated Intro, "Your Turn To Roll", from the incredible production #CriticalRole!
    Huge thank YOU to Ryan Stroemel for helping produce the track. Check out his newest release, "Invincible" here: • Invincible
    Another HUGE thank you to my cinematographer and director Ian Fyfe who took the time to put a video together
    Credit where credit is due!
    Critical Role:
    / @criticalrole
    Colm McGuinness:
    • 'Welcome to Wilde...
    "Your Turn to Roll":
    • Mighty Nein Anima...
    Roll! (Critical)
    Roll! (Critical)
    Roll! (Critical)
    Roll! (Critical)
    Roll! (Critical)
    Roll! (Critical)
    As your adventure begins
    I would like to remind you, and
    Your nerdy best friends
    That I'm always behind you
    As I walk through the flames in the battles ahead
    Heroes beware 'cause you're 'bout to be dead!
    (Correct amount of villainous laughter)
    You got magic and flair
    You got falchions and cunning
    Take a look over there
    I've got monsters incoming
    Devastation is waiting
    You better think twice
    Put your fate in your hands
    Take a chance, roll the dice
    (Dope guitar)
    You have witness to bear
    As my legend unfolds
    I hope you've given your best
    Now it's my turn (my turn)
    To roll!

    So essentially this is Matt's theme song. I love it.

      Not Matt… but Matt’s evil mirror universe counterpart. The bald one with a ravishing and flowing moustache.

      @DJOS An interesting take for this transition would be to have Lorenzo's killing strike against Molly turn into Yasha stabbing Beau with Obann looming behind her. It would make for a cool parallel, especially as Matt described Yasha's attack to invoke the same imagery as Molly's death.
      Edit: Then, to combine both yours and Lock's vision, it could transition to Ukatoa's servant pulling the sword out of Fjord!

    • Lock Skelington
      Lock Skelington 2 years ago +2

      @Hostile_Prof Yes, Absolutely, That!

    • Hostile_Prof
      Hostile_Prof 2 years ago +2

      @Lock Skelington end with the current villain, with essek behind them. But have Matt's hands in the sky puppeteering

      Matt isn't a villain though...

  • David Macarthur

    I think this could work a little better:
    Your fate's in my hands.
    You've no chance. Roll your dice.

  • Rusted Snake

    Can't wait for a villain that would challenge the m9 as much as Obann did and beyond.

  • dexter goodman
    dexter goodman 2 years ago +5

    So anyone else hoping this guy makes more songs like this? Ones that are sung from different views, like theres so many songs that could be sung from a different view and it would still hold just as much power. This is just amazing and shows his talent

      AnAxe&Two38s  2 years ago +4

      Well considering that this is a cover, that also musically quotes another artist's work as well, I would rather not put it there until I have permission.

  • Ardin Helme
    Ardin Helme 2 years ago +2

    The best part of this for me is the change of inflection on "monsters incoming" it really sells the mad villain vibe.

      AnAxe&Two38s I appreciate “correct amount of villainous laughter” not just “villainous laughter.
      And it really is true. Not too much or too little. It’s the little things one doesn’t pay attention to that makes the difference.

    Definetly would say good job on this though personally not a fan. The music is just... i want to say chaotic, like its trying to do too much at once and just doesn't appeal to at least me though not sure if others feel the same. Definetly good word choice to mix up the original intro into a villains intro
