Well this song's been in the making for a long while now. Originally, I started off trying to score "The Watchmen" trailer, but I really let go of myself and came out with something different. After listening to the song about 100 times when going through the final mixing and mastering, I came up satisfied with the name "The Raid." I also had a little story in my mind describing the piece as well. It's not super specific and detailed, but here goes.

...Following your comrade in front of you, you make your way down the ventilation shaft. You keep passing the vents where you can see soldiers below you on guard. Taking a deep breath, you move forward. The person in front of you stops and motions for you to do the same. He turns and you can see through his goggles that you've arrived at the destination.

Checking your gun one last time, you nod a ready sign to him. He holds his fingers up for you and counts down silently. 3.. 2.. 1..

You hear a violent crash as you and him drop down to the floor below you. You're in the room and you can see the documents you have to retrieve, but a surprised look on the guard's face startles you.

Grabbing the documents you fight your way alongside your comrade out of the building where the helicopter awaits.

Meh, not the best story ever, but that's sort of what I had in mind.

Please vote fairly, thanks in advance for any comments!

Nice New Song~!

[Sayonji]: Ooh! Thanks for pointing me in this direction, SinJim-sir. n_n I enjoyed listening to your new song! It's got a nice, tense feeling throughout, but I got the impression the heroes were sneaking up on something more dastardly than some enemy guardsmen. xD Sort of like they were creeping into place for a big, important rally against an enemy! But I definitely got that "going through the vents" feel. The sound effect/music you used at the very start of the song reminded me of somebody opening up the vent, and thus the mission has started! xD Best part was 1:25, of course, when we get to the strongest point of the song. n__n That was fun to listen to! Nice work, SinJim-sir~!

I started to read your story...

But I had to stop and let the music take me in its own direction. It's all in the psyche of the person listening, I suppose. I saw something a little more evil, (depending on an individual's interpretation of evil).
However that being said, it was cool...cause it did drive me to a cool place.

Nicely done man. Everything sounds like it belongs where you put it, if that makes sense.

SinJim responds:

Thanks for the review, Bad-Man. As always, a review from you is much appreciated. I hear ya on the personal interpretation. I had my own idea, but it's always really exciting to see what I can inspire in other people with my music.

It definitely makes sense, and thanks for commenting on that. I'll have to drop by to check out your latest submission when I get a chance.

Thanks again!

Sweet man

This has a really epic yet eerie feel about it. I felt like i was watching like a movie with a bank robbery scene. There was this one sound especially where it sounded like the dude was drilling through a safe hahaha. This is top notch though man. Very powerful


SinJim responds:

Thanks a lot! I really appreciate it, coming from you.

Nice orchestration

I liked the variety in the orchestration and the use of percussion throughout the piece, from the more modern "hip-hop" style beat in the beginning to the more traditional percussion later in the song. I think the additional sound effects complemented the composition itself.

I absolutely think you succeeded in creating epic, energetic "trailerscore" -type modern orchestral music. My one small criticism would be that the ostinato piano that starts up around 0:42 is a bit less "epic" and a bit more "daytime soap". I think using the staccato strings as you do at 1:11 for the job is a bit more appropriate.

Overall, though, I agree with secondstamp - the quality of the piece lives up to your usual high standards.


SinJim responds:

Thanks for the review! I'm glad that you liked it!

I'll check into the piano. I'm starting to see myself hitting the limits on those samples I have, so eventually I'll be investing in professional ones.

Thanks again!
