Tried using cymbal or bass drum rolls with a crescendo? Those always make great transitions... or runs on strings or flute or some Wagner-style dissonant chord leading upwards into the final chord.
Haha, I already used pretty much all those transitions in the song :P. Well except instead of bass drum rolls I used timpani rolls.
My problem is moving from 3/4 to 4/4. I'm probably going to try an experiment where I play a note every beat in 3/4, and speed it up until they sound really quick, and then change to 4/4 and the sped up notes will sound like triplets, all the while building up to the climax. Sorry I'm crap at explaining! I don't know if it'll work since I never tried something like that before, but it's worth a shot!
Man, I seriously hope I'll make it on time.
