Hey thanks for the apology but you can keep it because this was totally enjoyable. That quick diminished change before the loop is a nice break from the main melody, reminded me of super sentai composition styles from the 60's/70's.
You know when you're close to the final boss and there's sometimes that little pre-boss level thats not really as hard but just sets the tone, like the calm before the storm? Thats what I heard, and totally loved it! Oh and your apology is REJECTED!!
Average? I wish I was this average. This is pure gold. The best way I can describe it would be Kukeiha Club on DXM. I like how you used DPCM for just the kick. Also, the melody's simple yet very effective. Personally I'd add some bent tone to the triangle channel to emphasize the snare instead of using noise only.
