Solid

This is a song that seems to show the short explanation of the song in an epic story form. It would make great background song that plays while the image shows the progression of time. Excellent sound. It has already put a story in my head. Keep it up.


MaestroRage responds:

I am glad you could think of a story while listening, for that is after all what these pieces are here for. To let you, if even for one minute, live somewhere else.

Thank you for the review, i'm glad you liked it :D!

MaestroRage responds:

Thank you! I try to tell a story with every piece, to let the listener live in a another world, though not always with great success!

The sounds you are hearing are

East West Symphonic Orchestra Gold Pro. Very long name I know. It's roughly 600 dollars, and thats a great price, for it truly is a marvelous package.

The choirs are

East West Symphonic Choirs, again, 600 bucks, but once again, bloody brilliant in quality.

Let me know if you want me to listen to anything, i'd be happy to give you my thoughts. Thank you for the review, i'm glad you liked it!

Woah. Overpowering image alert.

When the song started I got a hugely overpowering image of a ship at a stormy sea... but I'll go into that later. Technicalities first... ;)

Very well-used instruments, I think, and well-chosen, too. Very movie-like, I think. Those effects playing every other beat are nice, too, and fitting.

Blaring horns now. And very-well used, it's great composition and great harmony. :D Once again, very movie-like. This time, the steady half notes give a feeling of insignificance compared to the great sea around you, an overpowering, ominous one. Great atmosphere here, some of the strongest I've heard from you, I think.

The strings are great, too, with creative rhythms symbolizing unpredictability every which way you look.

Softer now. Light choirs alone... and then a great transition into that powerful theme again! This time a bit uplifting, as if now the sailors are conquering the sea. The song slows down, tension... boom. Ending. Really creative, and there's more effort here than in Arise Sleeper, I think! :D Some of your best work.

Storytime - and for topping Arise Sleeper, I'll make a sequel to that cliffhanger I left you on for that song. :P

Sailors wake up to find their ship tossing and turning, and stumble to the deck. The movements of the ship toss them into the walls on their way.

On deck, the captain gives out orders but nobody hears him over the roars of the ocean. Being professionals, they know simply to improvise as the conditions change. And so, powerful waves hitting more than often, they do battle against the great ocean.

Is that light on the horizon? A sailor on the crow's nest shouts and everyone's head turns as they see it.

The sailors, now motivated to at least make it to daylight, fight harder but the waves increase in strength, until they find themselves nearly vertical on a great tsunami, getting steeper, steeper, steeper... the wave begins to break and the view blacks out.

Hah! Left you on another cliffhanger because I want to hear more songs like this! :D Will this story ever end? I'll let you guess.

Great work, Maestro! Truly epic. Those people working on Esca are pretty lucky. :D Is there any chance you could stop by my audio page to listen to (possibly review if you have time? :P ) another classical I've made? I want to know what you think. You won't be disappointed... I promise. >:)

Voted 5, reviewed 10, and downloaded... again, it's one of your best. :D Looking forward to more, keep up the great work.


MaestroRage responds:

>:(

ANOTHER cliffhanger Karco?! Well I should have seen it coming, I mean I did leave a cliffhanger feeling at the end myself.

But you know, 2 wrongs don't make a right >:(!!!!

Oh well, I suppose I will have to hear the ending of these sturdy men of the sea through another piece.

One particular phrase caught my interest though. The fact that despite the captain's orders being muted out by the ocean, they were still able to function. It makes me wonder what exactly the captain is doing then. I mean, of course he is the captain, and he provides guidance throughout their journey, but to see his guidance be silenced by the storm, and still the crew functioning must be a scene that makes any captain proud.

Those effects of which you speak is actually the tuba and bass drum slamming it! I loved the feel, and it brought up a ton of ideas.

The imagery for this song that i used was quite different then yours Karco, but I assure you the feeling of conviction and dedication are both the same.

My image was that of a noble and pure fighter, who through a series of events finds everything around him to betray him and his goals. The people he risked his life for countless times refute him, his very gods take away from him the strength and power he needs to continue fighting the darkness that infects this earth.

Blind by his own commitment to fighting the darkness he turns to the saying "Fight fire with fire!" and resorts to the dark arts to destroy the very same. However he takes that saying, and makes it his new motto, altered as follows.

"Fight fire with fire, and build it so your fire is so large it builds into an infernal storm, and by absorbing the other fire, it will destroy everything, and in it's wake, it will destroy itself."

The beginning is his strides towards corrupting everything around him so that he can begin crumbling it.

The choir segment is him standing in the middle of his empire. Built on ruin and hatred. Everything stops, the winds, the clouds part slowly, and lets streams of light shine on the corrupted earth. He raises his arms slowly, showing his work to the gods who refused him.

"Though you'd dare take from me, I continue to give back to you the only way I can..."

he lets his arms drops and the excited theme begins again. The world begins to explode into fire, pure, cleansing, angry fire. Veins of darkness find their way into everything before exploding likewise. Slowly, things begin to die. Smiling the corrupted paladin closes his eyes and dies with his creation.

I had another ending for the story, one that ends with some heroes fighting the confused paladin better, but I like this one better!

Thank you for the review Karco, I hope I didn't write too much :P. I'm glad you liked this piece. It did take a lot of effort, but it was worth it.

OOOOOOOOOO

If i were to stab some one i would want this in thet background. Epic work as usual. And tehn it drifts into a slow choir. The remorse after the killing me thinks. :)

And then you swell once more into a climactic finish. Wonderful. Love the abrupt ending really adds a extra wow factor.

I come to the portal for about 10 mins and what do i find? you've submitted another masterpiece. Good stuff.

Oh and last time you responded you asked me if i was to be makeing any more music. The answer is no. Not for like 2 months. GCSE's to revise for, and i can't find my bass speaker or my mike. (stupid dad hideing them.)

Nice work old boy.


MaestroRage responds:

:O!

Stab somebody?! But what if they were totally wearing Kevlar armor?! WHAT IF?!

The imagery you had is pretty close to my story, there is indeed the anger, the frustration first, then the sorrow and regret, and then the absolute conviction.

Also, although i'm a little saddened to hear you won't be making anything for 2 months, I respect your choice. After all there are things in real life that just demand absolute attention.

When you are back into the creation scene, please let me know! I will gallop my way to your page!

Thank you for the review RedHotPoker, i'm glad you liked it! Keep up the good fight!
