Default VGA Space Shooter...?

The title music was Night on the Bald Mountain, in midi. (ie this tune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCEDfZgDPS8)

No clue as to the title of the game, but it was a sprite-based 3D ship shooter like Wing Commander, probably without the long-range travel. I don't think it was very well known which is strange because it was quite well produced.

Ring a bell? ;/

Vague possibles, incase they help: I think the title and UI colour scheme was orange-brown, and I seem to remember character portraits of the enemy aliens at some point, looking evil and fanged.

And btw. The title music being Night on the Bald Mountain is something I'm 1000000% sure of. Not something that sounds like it, but the actual piece. In midi.

Edit again: Apparently Elite 2 has that music too. I see. That's a big coincidence. ;/

That's why I suggested Elite 2, I knew it has that music.

Inferno maybe? Since you said sprite based, I ignored the likely suspects like HyperSpeed/LightSpeed and Star Crusader.

Nope. ;/ I've been thinking lately that it's title is probably something ambiguoud like that, though. Like Havoc, Mayhem, Fury... something like that. Not sure, but it feels like that's the case.
