Written for the VGM Challenge. Theme: Virtual Bond. I chose this one because it's a natural topic for me to write about anyway.


Two lovers would do anything to be reunited. Their tales intertwine but do not touch, their hearts reflecting each other's needs and desires. The eternal distance of space holds them apart.

Finally after their quest comes to a close, their bond brings them together for a final climax as the lovers dance in the void of space.

(WIP)

Apologies, I've had tons of technical issues. The song isn't finished but the main points are there. It lacks mixing refinement and I want to greatly expand on the outro (maybe a soft melody or solo over the top, I don't know) and I want to pass through and add detail to every part of the song, but no more time. Sorry <3 Don't hurt me.


NEW TOYS!

I made this using a bunch of tools I have never used before that I got in a bunch of deals at the end of last year. You can hear a bunch of new synths and my new drums by 8Dio. They sound incredible but the drums made my project crash a lot and load very slowly. 8Dio helped me fix the issue a little - at one point it refused to load at all! (for 3 weeks...)

I really liked it. I love this genre of music, and always respect the authors of this music. Just wonderful.

I really like this soundtrack. I love the Heavy Metal genre.

Newgrounds VGM Challenge - Virtual Bond: Review

If this is a WIP, i can't imagine how the final product looks like!
The instrumentation is stunning, and the style reminds me of Dash from Arkanoid DS.
0:47 and 3:25 gave me goosebumps, and you centered the concept perfectly; i like also the idea of writing some sort of context in the description.
Apart from the technical assessments, this track resonates within me quite a bit; there is a particular anime called Vandread, centered around a crew of female space fighters who loathe men and formed a society without needing them. I always imagined how their captain would interact with an android that behaves like a man, but has a different heart from everyone else, and as they overcome their struggles, they reach the climax clash, and thrust head on together.

This piece, even if unfinished, was a truly enjoyable experience; very well done.

Thanks for participating!

ooo i do love me some great guitar songs! i really dig this fusion of metal and sci-fi that you've made here. what this song needs is a little bit more dynamic, so maybe a faster part or an off the top shred section would really amp up the feels if you know what i mean. (don't forget to end it all on a soft melody :33) mix sounds okay to me, but if you could do any more refinement on this, please do! all in all, naicu!!
