Artist commentary:

cookiefonster: (Composer)

I struggled for a long time to make something for the final CANMT album, and I eventually decided: why not do what I'm best at? And so, I decided for my final song for CANMT to be yet another chiptune track, specifically an arrangement of Aggrieve (a fitting choice because Rose is one of the few normal characters in CANWC) with the VRC6 soundchip. That song ended up sounding quite a bit like something from Shovel Knight, which is how the song got its name (thanks interrobang). It was fun putting my own spin on Aggrieve and even changing the basslines and chords some, especially in the second half of the song. Changing the chords of a piece of music can be incredibly snazzy if done right, and I hope I did it right.

I'm currently playing Shovel Knight, so when I listened to this track, I had the vision of Rose in a strife in a 8-bits castle. It's the last track art I will make for this album, and while I "joined" the team not too long ago, I was really happy to be contribute to it, after all those years being a listener. Thank you CANMT!
