Unlike others, I try to show war as bad. Analyse it. You'll get my message.

Wow Maestro

He basicly said enough reviews for ten people, and thus I have nothing more to say than, keep up the good work, you got talent. Ya just need to polish it now. Your stuff is the most original I have ever heard. And they appear to take alot of time and effort to make. You inspire me, from now on, I put nothing but one hundred percent into my songs!

Has a taste of epic.

I can see depression, a lonely kind of air to the song, which would indeed indicate that war was a bad thing. You have succesfully portrayed the image.

well right off the bat, I can say the timpini usage was far better, and you've used it so that it complies with the melody rather nicely.

With the strings, brass and now flute going off, it sound rather epic, because, these are frankly the instruments for epic pieces.

I liked the intro, it built up approrpiatly and then threw me into the song. That really fast use of the timpini, bam, you got how to use them.

I like how you go from string, to brass, then string, to brass. However I am not certain that if using only one note per instrument,and then jumping to the other works very well. It is a good idea, to let the listener hear an instrument at least 3 or more notes, before switching, even then sparingly.

After 0:50, thats what I mean by it becomes epic, the epic feeling breaks off at 1:29 (as the song quiets down ^^).

The repeating harp, should be immediatly accompanied with another instrument.

1:32-2:10
During this time, the song kinda crumbles, it loses its melodic air.

However RIGHT after that, you get all hyper again, and it sounds simply amazing.

2:11-2:42 This time frame has that really neat loop, and then it kinda just stops, if I were you I would have looped that melody again, with the timpini part of it.

I want to dive a little bit more into the single note playing, during 2:11-2:42. You have the single note playing, and by doing this, you provide a invisible, yet solid foundation, you can have the harp going up and down chords while that note just keeps playing. Like what you did with the bass guitar at 1:46, but faster, and more melodic.

I liked the ending, simple, yet effective.

For future reference, war pieces, especially ones of this flavour, will utilize cymbol crashes in transitions, like at 2:34, having a crash RIGHT then at that transition, would make the song more powerful.

4/5 this time Harddrive ^^. In order to get a 5/5 from me again, I would like to hear some snare and more percussional work. Still, it was exceptional, keep them coming.


Harddrive100 responds:

Wow! Lots of suggestions! Thank you! I will definitly improve for a second War.

AGH! No cymbal??? GOD I'M A RETARD! lol.

You mentioned that the slower part was where the song crumbles. I disagree. I never meant for the entire thing to be epic war. It went like this in my head:

There was a war in a mideivil world, and a man chose to join the army to protect his family. The battle is the beginning. Then, while his group passes by his hometown, he goes to see his family, and they're all dead. That's the slower, sadder part. He's enraged by that, and that's the building the the end, where he goes to fight again, to avenge the death of all he loved.

Thank you for helping the development of yet another song!
