I started writing this song because I got all inspired from listening to Greyson by All Shall Perish. I then Said, f*** it, I'm going to make a song like that. About half way in, it started reminding me of a friend of mine so now this song is dedicated to her. There is a lot of Classical influence in this song, so I put it here. I'm aware there are a thousand songs called Ruin it was the only title that really fir perfectly.

When listening to this song, imagine walking for an eternity alone down a long straight road lined with green leaved trees, with a warm yellow orangey sun setting in front of you. You feel sad yet strangely warm inside. A bit further, you realize there is no hope, which turns into a complete metal breakdown, thrashing and flailing. All taking place in your head while you continue to calmly walk down the road.

Club Kukeiha, or Michiru?

This is a leap over the regular stuff you do: you've composed something complex enough to be featured in a contemporary video game soundtrack.

It initially reminded me of Club Kukeiha... or rather, the music/sound team responsible for the Vampire Killer/Castlevania series soundtracks. Michiru Yamane, who composed the Symphony of the Night soundtrack, comes to mind as well. Consider it a compliment, then, to have a critic be reminded of such things; those soundtracks were tricky and technically complex, not to mention inspiring to hear while killing vampires.

It does, however, seem a little repetitive. Maybe if the chord progression changed a little over the course of the song, rather than merely enhance the intensity of the instruments (particularly the percussion), then it would be even more likely to fit this into a game setting.

By itself, however, it's an excellent start. Several cool ideas play out here, so take a few footnotes from this track before moving onto others.

I'm glad you you enjoyed it, thanks for all the criticism, it's really helpful!

also, the repetativeness is on purpose if you read the little description thing

HappyHomicide responds:

This is actually just FL keys! I wish I could play Piano like this, but guitar is my main focus at this point.
