[HELP] Struggling to re-create an effect. Advice needed!

I'm working on re-creating a poster for a friend who lost the original files. I managed to get most of it done, but I'm struggling with the text effect used in the original image.

The original image shows embossed, metallic text with reddish reflected light coming from the bottom-left. I managed to find several different tutorials to get the embossed metallic look for the text, but the reflected light is eluding me.

Here's what I've managed to do successfully:

  • Layer Styles
    • Bevel & Emboss (Inner Bevel, Smooth, Ring Gloss Contour)
    • Inner Glow
    • Inner Shadow
    • Satin
    • Drop Shadow

Now, when it comes to adding that reddish light to the text, I think I have two options here (correct me if I'm wrong, please!):

  • Add a Gradient Overlay
    • I think I can create a radial gradient and apply it over the text layer after converting it to a Smart Object, which would give a fairly close approximation to the original effect. However, I'm not entirely sure what specs to use, and I'm reasonably sure that using a gradient overlay wouldn't give me the progressively lesser reflections seen on each successive letter. (Perhaps a Gradient MAP would do the trick instead of an Overlay?)
  • Use Multiple Layers and Blending Modes
    • I'm sure I could just go in and paint the reflected lights and shadows by hand on separate layers and then clean up each layer before merging, but I don't want to spend loads of time painstakingly painting in everything! (If, however, I'm correct in my assumption that using gradients won't give the effect I'm looking for, I might HAVE to paint it all in by hand.)

I'm just coming back to using Photoshop after almost ten years of not really giving it a second glance, so I'm finding the learning curve to be pretty steep. (I have a bad habit of making simple things really complicated.)

I'd really appreciate any tips, tricks, advice, or unexpected solutions anyone can provide!
