Steel and Snare is a rather rough sounding song that plays in dangerous areas. It is first heard at Northtown Castle, then briefly in the Sunken Fortress during the conversation with Hexas, just before Thantos appears, then again when you defeat Hexas, and finally outside the Mana Fortress.

This song is track 30 on the official soundtrack.


The American and Japanese soundtrack titles are essentially the same.
