Hello. I just wanted to ask a few questions.
I was thinking of Magma Dragoon's theme earlier today and realized its very similar to the song "Beyond the Colosseum" from Demon's Crest. Parts of Magma Dragoon's theme sounds like a faster remix of this song to me. Has anyone else noticed this? I'm musically illiterate, so I could be wrong.
I think Ippo Yamada did some of the music for Demon's Crest. Did he make music for this game, too? I've never played Mega Man X4 and I can't find much info on who composed the music for it.
I keep hearing parts of those songs in other games, too. Another example is a part of the song for Sol Titanion's stage in Mega Man Zero 4. I know Mr. Yamada composed for this game.
Here are links to these songs for comparison:

Demon's Crest Music - Beyond The Colosseum:
Mega Man Zero Collection OST - T4-17: Blaze Down (Artificial Sun - Sol Titanion's Stage):
I checked the Capcom Database wiki and discovered another composer who worked on all of these games. His name is Toshihiko Horiyama. This person is probably the one who made these songs.
I skimmed through the songs Mr. Horiyama has done and found out that he composed and arranged the first two songs listed here, but I can't find the information on the songs for Mega Man Zero 4.
I checked Mr. Yamada's page just now. It looks like he did the sound effects for Demon's Crest, not the music.
Apparently, Mr. Horiyama also composed the music for Mega Man 7. Did he compose the music for Freeze Man's stage? This song has a part that sounds similar to the style of the music from Demon's Crest.
Here's the song:

I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so I keep changing the wording of my post. Sorry if it's annoying.
I changed the link to the music of Freeze Man's stage. It's because I noticed the original video I posted for it had a download link for the song, and I'm not sure if that's allowed.
