A punishing aura of destruction intention of killing alone. Such is the way of the lost...

Simply amazing

In my opinion, the best piece of music on NG. Fantastic work, I absolutely LOVE it. You're guaranteed in Castle Crashers, and if you're not in it, I'll protest. :P

MaestroRage responds:

I have already prepared protest cupcakes!

I thank you for your words, but there are MANY great submissions for the contest, it was a thrill just being in it!

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

Lost with No Wisdom

It appears before the battlefields that Kings march onward ignoring there own wisemen sentencing them to death. The battles range on between two kingdoms that once got along prosperously until one from one kingdom killed another from the other, then war became announced. These killings due to the lone killer's actions have caused destruction and mayhem among two that were once one. With the wise ones heading to the gallows all is lost on hope except for thousands to die in the matter of meager mortals decisions.

Another great piece of music you have created. I enjoyed it greatly.

MaestroRage responds:

It is strange, how rash emotions have often ruined ideal and prosperous scenerios. It is no surprise to read the head of the lion, like always, will attack what it pleases. The body, must sadly follow regardless of what it may be thinking.

It is a story that rings true in history as well as fiction. Well written The-Great-One!

Thank you for the review, i'm glad you liked it! Sorry for the late response, keeping track of reviews are incredibly hard with the new system!

I agree with David. I may be new here, but I like to browse A LOT! You really have improved from your old works and I would love to see more masterpeices such as this!!! It makes you feel as if you are on an old war torn battlefield marching in with the rest of your army then charging to collide head-on with each other! At least that's the feeling I get. :)

MaestroRage responds:

Hello James! Sorry for the delayed response. I've never been good at keeping track of reviews, and the new system doesn't help. Grawd.

In any case, I owe this competiton a lot. Facing great guru's like DavidOrr, WinterWind-NS, MusicalRocky, Arbiter, and so many other great artists, had driven me to several sleepless nights, just training, and practacing. Thanks to this energy, i've been able to take many leaps and bounds.

The imagery which you saw is of course, a valid, and epic one. I love the war torn field scenes. Quite moving.

Thank you for your review, i'm glad you liked it!

Man, if there is ever a "most improved" award, you'd definately deserve to get it. You've improved leaps and bounds these past few months- everything is balanced better, clearer, and you seem to have a better overall understanding of how the orchestra fits together.

First off, a question. What drums are you using? I love the samples, they're extremely powerful and crisp. You use them really well!

Second, a suggestion. At 0:41 I believe you have parallel motion in a manner in that sounds awkward (Jumping from a B dim to E minor). It does fit the atmosphere set by the piece, but it may be something you want to take a look at. Other than that, I don't really have any suggestions.

Third, a congrats. You've got a really good shot at the competition! Even if you don't pull the winning prize, you've made more progress than any one else I've listened to on Newgrounds in a long while.

Keep up the astounding work!

MaestroRage responds:

Hey David!

It took a while to get used to using headphones over earphones, but with only roughly a week passed, i'm already able to do more with them then I was with the years of earphone use! I can't wait to get me some slick speakers someday!

The drums in use are as follows *All from East West Orchestra by the way!*

- Taiko Drums *that stick clicking sound*
- S Wagner Bass Drum
- Roto Toms
- Timpani Hits
- Head slamming against wall *not really in song, but dents were planted everywhere!*

I know exactly what you mean at 0:41. I personally liked it better like that, the jump in my opinion added just a little extra spice!

Thanks a lot David. Coming from you thats a real compliment! Like most contests I did it for the experience. Fighting against you, Winter, and Rocky, has really pushed me several nights! I am grateful to have had this oppurtunity! I'm glad you liked it!

This is unbridled FLAWLESSNESS. It sounds so epic, like something from a hardcore story-driven fighter.

I think we have a winner. If only it were longer...

MaestroRage responds:

The original intention of this song was to be significantly longer to be honest. However after talking with a friend who produced some tracks himself, I realized all of his loops were hanging around the minute mark. It came to our attention that the loops should be smallest in size, whilst retaining as much impact as possible. The contest is intended to be an online arcade game, so to make super long loops, reduces their chances of being used, as that means more waiting to play. it's a fast paced game, why make it a long download?

Thanks for the review RaNcID! I am probably going to make an extended mix one day, but that day is not today! I'm glad you liked it!
