Clicking on a level-picture will open a small window on your screen and
start playing music. You can place the jukebox-window anywhere on the screen.
If you want to change the music just select a new
picture from this page, or use the arrows within the little-jukebox. The music will play until you close the little window or click on the
mute-button. To download a tune just click on to the level picture in the
Your browser will only be able to play YM-files if you have the ST-Sound-Plugin
installed. Many Atari ST related sites use this plugin, so you won't
regret the installation. If you don't want to install the little ST-Sound-Plugin
maybe you wish to listen to YM-Files in WinAMP, there is a WinAMP-Plugin
All necessary files to use ST-Sound-Plugin in your browser or in WinAMP are located on
the Lethal Xcess download-page.
There is only one midi-file available, but maybe there will be more in
A guy nicknamed Oedipus sequenced the title-music from Lethal-Xcess level
one. He did a very good job on the conversion. Oedipus did a lot of high quality midi-versions of "old skool" game tunes,
which you can download for free. So don't hesitate and give it a try.
Hippel COSO Files (Amiga)
If you have installed the Deliplayer,
you can enjoy all the Hippel COSO musics ripped straight from the Amiga.
On Atari machines you can use jam 1.0
from cream. There are two special tunes from the intro- and end-sequence with feature
If you download the COSO-files (295 kb), you
get the Atari ST intro- and end-sequence tunes on top.
Alain Derpin sent in some SID-Conversions of the Lethal Xcess tunes.
They had been released in various issues of "Game On" and
"Magic Disk 64". The conversion had been done by Thomas
Detert for the C64 Version of LX, which was cancelled later, because
the artist quitted the project for personal reasons. Check out the C64-SID tunes
(18 kb), playing perfectly on the PC with Deliplayer.
You can also use SidAmp,
which is a plugin for the famous WinAmp
or you can enjoy them on your Atari machine, download PlaySID by Cream for
the (Mega) ST, the (Mega)
STE or the Falcon 030.
Last not least you can listen C64-SID-tunes directly from your favourite Browser
(Netscape or IE) with
MP3 Files (Atari ST)
There are some nice MP3 files converted from the Atari ST version of
Lethal Xcess available. Alain Derpin strikes again with VBR-encoded
I will record the Amiga tunes from the original game
as soon as possible. When this
task is finished I will put the VBR-encoded files onto this page for
Amiga MP3s coming in February 2004...
UMD 8730 MP3 File (Recorded from Atari ST)
I am almost sure anybody has noticed the great Intro of the Ultimate
Music Demo 8730 by PHF
while I am typing these lines. Within that intro many classic chip- and
Atari-SID tunes are mixed into a 20 minute 30 second mega-medley by
TAO of Cream. An excerpt with the music from Lethal Xess Level one has
been converted to a 932 kb VBR MP3
by Alain Derpin.
I was very surprised that even Lethal Xcess and X-Troll got mentioned
within that brief history of Atari demos and music. That's a completely
new experience, because we preferred to be unknown in the past. Maybe the X-Trolls
will get famous at last ;-)
Anyway congratulations to PHF
for that nice intro and the biggest collection of Atari
tunes within a single demo so far. A shame that our
Audiopac-demo has been beaten once again
with a much bigger number of ripped tunes :).
MP3 Files (Recorded from CD)
There are two CDs with Tracks from Jochen Hippel available. A third was
planned but never released.
Jochen Hippel "Give it a try"
"Give it a try" was Jochen Hippels 1st CD and had been

Source or you can download the MP3 files from the

Jochen Hippel "remixed"
"Jochen Hippel remixed" is another CD with Music composed by
Jochen Hippel. It had been arranged by Mike Weling on the following
Hardware: Kawai GMega, Quasimidi Quasar and Alesis D-4. "Jochen
Hippel remixed" is available from the
Source. Mike Weling aka SevenEleven has uploaded the Level 4 tune
on a site with free MP3s,
so I could finally add it to my site. Unfortunately the tune has
disappeared from that site in the meantime. But you can find it here and
Jochen Hippel and Christoph Remspecher recorded the whole Soundtrack
of Lethal Xcess with professional equipment in march 1993.
These tracks have never been released so far, but Jochen and Christoph
agreed to making them available for free. The material is still
copyrighted and may not be sold or put into collections without the
written permission from the original artists. If you like to burn the
VBR MP3 files onto a CD you might also want to have a cover which can be
downloaded by clicking onto the little cover above.
If you like to mirror these files from your website we suggest you get in
touch with the copyright owners first, because so far they have only agreed
to make them available from three websites. These sites are "The
Thalion Source", the "Immortal
CD Website" and of course the site you are browsing right now.

Wow! Good news, one of the tracks mentioned above has been completely
new recorded. Maybe this will compensate the loss of the original tracks.
It will be released as

Andrew Barnabas and many more. You can order the CD at the synSONIQ
Website or just visit the website of Jan

Lethal Xcess Remixes by
SevenEleven aka Mike Weling did some very nice Remixes of the Lethal
Xcess tunes. Some of them are available on the Jochen
Hippel remixed CD. Both of them are downloadable since some time from
Since AmigaRemix claims that all tunes there are freely distributable I
have just mirrored them here. Enjoy some very nice remixes.
A German guy nicknamed viddi from the "English
Amiga Board" has recorded his piano interpretation of the Lethal
Xcess Main Tune amongst a set of other game-songs. Sounds perfect for
your wakeup-call or to have breakfast with. You can find 12 of the 16
tunes plus free front and back covers at the EAB-site.
This guy is not related to Lethal Xcess nor does his music has anything
to do with Lethal Xcess. For personal reasons he had chosen the title
Lethal Xcess for one of his CDs. Of course, he is an old ST freak ;-) Some
month after I mailed him, he wrote back and it turned out that he was
related to the Atari ST-scene once. He was active with crews like Legion
of Doom, Sentry Netherlands, Animal Mine and some more, doing graphics and
some Pro-Tracker tunes. He also claims to be influenced by Jochen Hippel
in an interview, which can be found on the website of
