This was quite an interesting tune to port, mainly because I had to temporarily fine-tune some spots in the guitars in order to play the pitch bends and vibratos expressively, and the kick drum is done interestingly: White noise for a nanosecond and then sine-wave bent downwards super quickly. I also just couldn't get this song off my head, the guitar work is just so expressive 😂
This is actually insane.
Really well done port as always brick.
Never heard of the track until now, It's very VERY high quality (Of course by the legendary Tim & Geoff Follin).
Edit: Now that I listen to this more closely, It kind of reminds me of Maximum Carnage for some reason.
Also the Xylophone isn't super annoying initially but it can a tad bit annoying if you listen to it for a long time.
This song is a banger, I agree! This port is really accurate to the original material; a solid port. There's not much more to say. You've done a really good job of porting the song, and it sounds really accurate.
And no, the xylophone isn't annoying... at least for me it's not.
This is indeed a great banger, really feels like you are at a rally. Job well done at this.

I don't find the xylophone annoying, but is it supposed to be a xylophone in the first place? It kinda sounds like it's being used as a cowbell to me.
True, if there's a "tick tick tick" sound in a rock-hard tune, then typically it's expected to be a cowbell.
Considering how Super Off Road uses the (mostly?) default SNES SDK samples, and an actual cowbell even is available in there (well it's more agogo... but still, close enough), it puzzles me why the Follin brothers used a xylophone.
