My first attempt at a classic piece. Honestly it's not even classic because I have no idea what I was doing with the violins, flutes and all the things.

Call it "fantasy epic music" or "attempt to fantasy epic music" :D

Hope you enjoy anyway and hope someone of you can teach me a thing or two about these kind of songs!

Say thanks to my friend, saint Gynius, for the drunken vocals

PS: Fucking percussions are so hard :D

JandreParis pretty much said everything I would have said about this track, and more :).
A pretty fantastic composition with a nice arrangement and great use of instruments.
The brass and strings at the beginning felt a bit awkward to me as well. sounds like the attack settings or whatever you use to fade the instruments in like that are a bit offbeat, so they don't really start or stop where I would expect it to. Doesn't have to be a bad thing though, just personal preference I guess.

Overall a great compositions with some great ideas :).

I'm a sucker for orchestral music, haha. Not sure how I feel about the subtle techno tint, but whatever :D

Cool song, catchy progressions for the chords, and definitely has a fantasy feel to it. I like the use of the vocals, and the transition to the flute. Pretty sweet, but i would focus on your transition points between your 16th bar segments / wherever it feels like a dramatic buildup a little bit more. I can hear reverse cymbals, but a "sweep" effect, possibly side-chained would be a good way to improve the "rising" feel that this song provides. a longer buildup 16-32 bars might do the trick. Also, I know it can be hard, but finding more relevant dragon hunting SFX / vocals would be cool. Sword swings + people screaming after a dragon fire breath perhaps? If not available, try to slice up what you have a bit, and have some fun! Experiment with it, and you'll see what i mean; there are plenty of YouTube tutorials available for some examples of what I'm talking about. Overall, a well put together piece. The melody gives me a 4* impression, if you focus on it a bit more on transitions and melodic progression you'll nail the "epic" sound for sure.

Thanks for taking the time to review me, I hope you found my feedback as useful as yours was to me. :)

Let's give this ago.

An interesting composition... it's actually quite nice.

The percussion at the beginning is interesting. The tambourine is syncopated (hits off the beat) which makes it a little hard to read. I quite enjoy things like that. Though, I must say that using it again around bar 17 was a bit much. Wanted it to be fairly consistent and solidified right at that point.

Throughout, the percussion does well.. until the 1 minute mark where it falls fairly flat. You could replace the bassdrum with an actual orchestral bassdrum so that it can sound a little more bombastic. The same goes for the snare. Classical pieces contain more of those than your token electronic kickdrum. It'd just fit the acoustic theme a little better.

But that said, since this feels a little more like a video game kind of track, the kick and snare could be beefed up more with some layering. Two or three kicks more kick and four more snares for the kind of sound you're trying to achieve.

Strings sound great. The trumpet before the "drop" could have been more consistent with its pattern, including the triplets, before the vocals came in.. especially with a cresendo like that. But the slight delay in it's delivery gives it a humanistic quality.

Flute is nice, could use a bit of EQ modification on the high-end to make it a little softer.

Vocals are good. I think it could benefit more from reverb rather than delay.

To me, it's as if it was a knight on his horse, giving an announcement to the people, so the feedback on that could be given a cutoff, and when he says "Dragons" you could create an automation of the reverb that gives it more wetness, so as to accentuate the fact that "SUDDENLY DRAGONS," y'know?

I like it for what it is. It does sound quite epic. A good job, methinks. Just a couple things here and there that could make it livelier.

I don't know what you mean by "attempt to fantasy music!!" This is amazing! I will admit, in the begining, the brass sounds akaward, but the rest of the song is awesome! (I can believe that he was drunk during those vocals....)

Hey thank you man
By "awkward" you mean the notes that it is playing, the way I put it into the composition or the sound itself?

I can't believe you actually liked this :3
Thanks for listening mate, really glad you enjoyed
