Edit: May 8 - I fixed the ending. It's not the Sephiroth/Cloud-looking super angel any more, it's an explosion that the Angels create now. Should make more sense...

Thanks Tom for front page! And thanks Newgrounds for daily first!

Earth is in Hell's grasp as Heaven tries to defend.

A bit of Greek Mythology (this movie leans towards greek myths and somewhat my own slight twist to things):
To get into Hell/Underworld, you must give the ferryman a coin known as an obol to cross the River of Styx or else you would be stuck between worlds.

Enjoy.

hmmmm....

i started watching it and it all looked good and I thought "wow thats some good music". But then the lyrics started - what were they on about??? Id like to give this a higher score but it was all just quite confusing.

good

i know this is your own understanding of greek mythology. but i always thought the coin was to get into paradise, and thats why people would put coins over the eyes of the dead before they burried them. but anyway, it was good. i just have one question. was the music serious???

Meh.

it wasn't really quite stunning or appealing this thing here, plus it's not my music taste at all. also: this is more christian because as far as i know, the greek did not have real angels, nor did they see 'hell' as a place where evil creatures lived who wanted to destroy mankind like the christians think. so i think it's more christian with some greek coins throws in it a couple o' times
