Hey there guys,

here is a little cinematic trailer score that i have written for Timothy Lew (now the owner of rights). The track is featuring some of the best choir vsti out there (Strezov Sampling Wotan & Storm Choir I, 8Dio Lacrimosa), also Voices (Tarilonte Shevannai, Ethereal Voice & Heroica from ERA II - Vocal Codex) and other stuff. The orchestral libraries that i have used for this one are Spitfire Albion One, EWQL Hollywood Strings Diamond & Symphonic Orchestra Gold, CineOrch and the Samplemodeling French Horn. For the Percussion and Hybrid Elements i have chosen Xfer Serum, 8Dio HybridTools 1, EWQL Hollywood Orchestral Percussion Diamond & Symphonic Orchestra Gold, Stormdrums 2, NI Action Drums, ProjectSam True Strike 1.

I hope you enjoy my track. Honest votes and reviews are always appreciated!

Thanks a lot mate for your very friendly review :) I am very critical when it comes to my stuff and i always find lots of issues and flaws ... there is always something that i would want to change. But at some point you just have to release the piece and face another challenge :D I am reall happy that you think it feels great and professional - thanks for that!

Happy Easter!

I rate this a 5/6 since your impressive vocals are absent. :P But seriously - my absolute favorite song of yours so far; just jaw dropping, full of life, resplendent work!

The final result is wonderful! It's difficult to believe how quickly you made this, especially since you were kind of moonlighting this!

As ST mentioned, the realism is always a nice aspect of your compositions. The dynamic use of volume, is especially effective with the high quality choirs. I love the development at around the 2 minute mark. The transition works so well! The instrumentation, arrangement and structure are all on point. I would love to one day, see your work on the big screen!
So I'll be waiting for when that day comes, eagerly ;)

Obv, I love the piano work! Once again, it sounds pretty realistic since it's not perfect; some notes seem to be just slightly off the beat, and the velocities sound pretty natural :D
It risks getting a bit buried in the mix at points like 3:40, but I think you managed to bring it out well enough!

Finally, I think it's worth noting just how effective the chords and melodies of the piece are. This would sound good even without all the orchestra on top. The percussion near the end is pretty cool too!

Anyway, that's it for me. In reality, I could've just told you I really love this piece, which I do! I'll share it with a few of my friends too ^ ^

Thanks so much - i am really happy you are comfortable with the result. I am always a little bit over-critical when it comes to my own stuff and find tons of little issues and details that could / should be fixed (and they are there for sure :D ). But as long as i try to improve i think its ok. There is stil so much i want to learn - especially concerning production, mastering and mixing.

Have a great weekend friend!

Exceptionally impressive nearly 5 minutes of work. The quality is top notch as usual. And the most favorite part of all your track are production and structure of the piece. Massive choirs and vocals, which is what make this piece stood out the most. This is something to be expected from professional composers with live orchestra, such as Two Steps From Hell or Immediate Music. But I guess you are already there! Over and above all impressively how you managed to create such realistic work with mere software.

The build ups and climaxes are the best treat here. Love the story-telling moment and movement you have here. When it ended, took me a while to realize it did. Listened to this on loops few more times and it gets better every time. That's how epic this piece.

Excellent top work as usual. Looking forward for more works like this in the future. I think you can do much more awesome on every new work.

Thanks a lot man! I dont even know what to say - your review is just too kind :) To be compared to guys like 2SFH is just ... omg! I always try to improve but i am aware that there are stil lots of issues and things to imrpove. I think my biggest problem is stil the mixing and mastering / production in general. Its so damn hard in all that chaos to get things as clean and bright as possible. Things always tend to become muddy but thats a common problem when using orchestral libraries in a too dense arrangement.

Thanks so much for your kind review - hope to talk soon!
