Jun Senoue on The Best of Crush 40: Super Sonic Songs:
All Hail Shadow
Based on my idea, the one that Mike Szuter, as Magna-Fi, completed as simple, full-on hard rock tunes with only the band is the original prepared for the Hero Ending of Shadow the Hedgehog. For this version, which was arranged for Sonic the Hedgehog, the commemorative title of 15th anniversary of Sonic’s birth, I had added the programmed elements and finalized it with industrial taste. In that sense, like I Am… All of Me, His World, and others, it’s a song that shows a dark side of Crush 40. As for the latter half of the guitar solo, which is heard as I step on the wah pedal, I actually used the envelope filter and showed the nuance by picking.
