Tyranthraxus' Lair
Composer Seiji Toda
Released 1991-06-28

Tyranthraxus' Lair plays when the party exploring Tyranthraxus' Lair, the final part of the game.

The song plays in the 6/8 time signature and is in C minor, and plays at approximately 114 BPM. The song starts out with a piano-like instrument descending up and down a C diminished chord, which loops throughout most of the song. The bass and second square wave then play a menacing phrase in unison. Also, as the song progresses, the drums make more of a presence. Near the end of the song, the instruments ascent up a chromatic scale, and the lead instrument does 16th note trills respective to the scales. Then the instruments stop while the drums finish. Then, after a short silence, the song loops from the beginning.

The song was written by Seiji Toda in Music Macro Language. Seiji should be contacted for an official title.
