Highly emphatic.

Really like the start. I like the way you've not hurtled straight into playing the theme all the way through, and have rather taken the first part and developed the piece into something bigger than the theme itself.
The descending notes in the harmony were very well done; as a person below put, it creates quite a calming atmosphere, and the way you bring all the instruments in at around 0:16-0:26 was very nice. The first drum roll could have been louder, but the quiet after it was very emphatic.

What can be said about the buildup at 0:40-0:52...loved the guitar, just gave it even more of a tense aggression to it. This is one of the more rhythmic and intense competition entries I've heard for this contest, so far.

The strings at 1:30 were very energetic, the way you bring them into the theme also at 1:50 felt very romantic and epic. From 1:16 onwards, it really reminded me of the sort of music you'd hear in a movie trailer for something like the Dark Knight, which is odd because I've gotten Pirates of the Carribbean vibes from a fair few of the other pieces.

The ending is insane, in the good way. The cymbals at the 2:35 point could have been a little less frequent, but the break just after it, before the drums/double bass was again, very tense.
The ebbs and flow of instrumentation and dynamic were on point, it was a very engrossing and emotionally intense piece to listen to. Excellent work.

Thanks for the lengthy review. I'm glad you thought it sounded trailer-ish, since that was part of the vibe I was going for.

This has "epic" written all over it. The percussion, the string riffs, it's awesome. Hope you do well.

Thanks, man!

I really like it.

I like how it starts out really slow and smooth, it's a calming beggining. I think that you should have made the little break :31-:37 a little shorter. While it does make the piece sound a little more dramatic, it's a bit too long. Although i do like the little drum roll that you add to it.

I like the how you make it speed up a lot, it really got my attention. While I like the electric guitar entrance, I think that you should have softened it a bit, and made it a little bit more of the background. I like the melody of the music, it's strong and powerful and really sound nice.

I think that it suddenly gets quiet at around 1:10, yet you still keep the violins playing really softly, it made me ppick my ears up and pay attention to it. Then the crescendo that you made was pretty good, although I would have liked to hear it get a little louder.

To 2:26 or so, it was fantastic. I really liked the drum melody that you used during it, it kept me listening and it help my attention for a long time. When it came to 2:26, I think that it was a great way to lead to the end, all the instruments playing at once, but in a good way. It stayed in balance. At the end when you have just a really long note I think that you should have made it get softer so that then it didn't just end suddenly.
