Pulling out all the stops for A.I.M 2021 with this ferocious metal jam inspired by Ciancio's painting, Let me raise my sword. Enjoy! ♪

Instrumental: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/1054752


Calling beyond the veil

The pain of our existence

A pledge to our devotion

Falling the tide of our own

arrogant subsistence

Devoid of all emotion

Valley of bones

Tortured and twisted

We're so far from home

Terror existed here

Titans arise

So let me raise my sword

Through crimson eyes

Blinded we'll fight them all

Damage alive the fog 

of war blackens the sky

We're drowning in the ocean

Ravaged rend asunder our

colossus' piercing cry

Surviving under no sun

Why would the spirits have lead us astray

Endless hellfire lost count of the days

Grandiose nightmare it pierces our core we're not

thriving in barren wastelands God no more of the..

If there was ever a song in AIM 2021 that could be described as badass and intimidating simultaneously, this would definitely fit the bill.

Your guitars always sound amazing and I like how the song has quite a bit of contrast between sections, like it doesn't all hit the same, but the sections all still work together to create a cohesive song. I think I've probably said this before with your Chips entries, but I don't know if it's possible to give the vocals a bit more diction so that it's more clear as to what you're singing without having to refer to the lyrics.

The craziest part of the song was actually when the tempo slowed down at 2:24. That was when things started to get even more frightening, like my soul was going to be taken over or something, haha. Also, the guitar solo leading up this section was amazing. It handled the transition to the tempo change fantastically.

Overall, you've created another, very solid entry. You continue to impress me with how much you can pull off with a guitar and your voice.

Thanks so much for all the kind comments!
