So, I wanted to share a sample of what I've been doing; hoping that I would be getting criticism and guidance. I run into the situation where I have no idea if what I am doing is right or wrong due to the lack of knowledge, so I thought maybe sharing this would be a really nice way to get people directing me to where I should be going.

Hey there,

first i think you should put this track into the cinematic genre. The combination of the percussion and the unison string section worked quite well.

There were a few things which could be improved in my opinion:
* You should insert some dominant synths and the rest should be accompanyment. Maybe french horns would be suitable.

* Also i would recommend to bring in a midpart where the key signature changes - also a change in speed in the drums would have been good i think. The midpart normally should come after your ending here. I would insert it with some brass action or some raising dissonant string noises and then: Boooooom! There the action comes!

* use the full dynamical specrte. The volume always is constant in this track. Some changings here can intensify the feel a lot!

* bring in deeper and massive percussion action! Something like the stormdrum 2 stuff, heavyocity evolved series or damage. That will add the special epic kick to the track.

Overall well done. Hope this helped a little bit :D

Merry christmas and a happy new year!

Thanks for the great review!
I have recently learned how I could sound-shape a synth, and I will be working on forming my own sounds. This process will surely need plenty of trial and error, but I am certain it will be rewarding! :D
I shall work on the mid-part that you've suggested. I have also noticed that I am not giving the modulation any justice, and I need to be working on it.
I actually haven't thought about blending massive percussion with rock-based ones. I will give it a shot.

Thanks again!
