This song I made for Jernemies for Secret Santa 2013 (at the end of 2012)

It is inspired by bassfidlejones and MaestroRage, because they're so good at making epic music.

It's a remake of my earlier song 8-bit genesis, but in a totally different style. The other one was serene, while this one is aggressive. Some people were complaining the earlier song was too slow. To prove them wrong, I kept the same bpm, but I added drums and guitars to give it more drive.

Also note how simple this song actually is when you listen to the 8-bit version, and how it still can sound grandiose.

I hope you like this, and don't hesitate to use it in your game or video.

Edit 10th of June 2014: Made various changes. Added better amp and distortion effects on the rhythm and base guitars. Made the snaredrum slightly less high pitched and sharp. Could do with some more improvements, but those will come in due time.

Wow, nice job (I have not mastered the orchestral and classic styles yet). Some parts remind me of the Onestop midi file. You also had a really nice dist guitar in there, really rev'd the song up. Goes into a perfect loop as well. I'd say this is good for a flash game, instead of a full scale production game but, still though, great job. 4.5/5.

Every style is different to master. I don't really have any tips for you I'm afraid. Just listen to orchestral and or classical pieces, learn what each instrument can or can't do, and how to simulate that. Use a lot of fades varying velocity levels and tone lengths, vibrato and if you can legato. There are a lot of people who are better at this than I am, and who have better software. I can improve a lot.
There are plenty of good flash games on this site. It'd would be great if this were used in one of them.

Great song man! Reminds me a little of One Winged Angel the Advent Children version. This really should be in a video game. It is indeed quite simple I think. Makes it seem a little pretentious. On the other hand, that you can make this song sound large despite it being simple, may prove what you have is very close to the core of what we like, so the core of our very being if it were. Making it all the more epic. I also listened to your 8-bit version (8-bit genesis), and I noticed you say that was an intro for a web series. Does that mean this is for the final battle of that series? That would be very cool I think.

Thanks. It does indeed sound a little like One Winged Angel, because of the intro has that same staccato beat, the fact that it's a combination of orchestral and metal, and because it has a choir.
You know well how to formulate that simple can sound good or even epic. Take dance songs for instance. Most have a simple beat, but that's what makes it danceable.
The direct cause of me making this song is that I wanted to make something nice for Jernemies for Secret Santa, and he said he liked orchestral, metal and jazz, so I did two of them (I'm not good at jazz). But I've been thinking about making a battle themed version of 8-bit genesis for a long time. In fact I think I responded that to one of the reviews (Is that where you got the idea from?). I don't know if I will ever do that web series. Animation tests didn't go very smoothly for me. The story seems a little too thin. But at least there's the music.
