Young warriors march to war, eager to fight, feeling no fear... Classical + 1 rock guitar.

It's a really good song. The drums have a well-known pattern, yet merging with the melody become kinda unique. I'm still using a traditional composing software (MuseScore) for my songs. And you are using Reason. Is it better than FL studio? Is it hard to learn? Anyways very good song!


This sounds like Final Fantasy music.. You've captured an awesome feeling with this song. 10/10!

Well its certainly not as good as that, but thanks anyway...

Nice classical track

Hy Skragga!

It's a long time back, since I've last reviewed any of your music - but it's now the time to write one.

I've read that you're using Reason now. And yes - I could hear the Reason instruments and some of the choirs are from there surely (Monk choir in on of your earlier classical pieces).

Nice melodies and bulid up here - I liked the mood. I think some heavy distorted guitar-riff could have been a hammer here or a electric guitar solo would also a great add-on.

I could suggest some marcato strings/cellos from the Orkester soundbank - they could really dinamise the songs. (I've experienced a lot.) And I'd give you an advice for Reason:
- Use the french-horns and the brass-section instuments (NN-XT) with automated frequency. This way they'l give a more realistic sound.

So this song is really good - I belive that after practising a lot, you'll become a really good classical composer. Keep up the good work!

Yo madboss,

I have to admit that it's also been a long time since I've checked your songs, so sometime soon I'll be sure to drop in.

Guitar riff... well I'd have used a heavy guitar riff if Reason had a decent guitar instrument. I couldn't get any guitar refills yet and there's only this one in the factory soundbank that sounds kinda acceptable. I had to work with what I had :/ The one included is closer to an electric guitar solo, but it's a little 'meh'.

Marcato strings... if you listen to my other reason songs you'll notice that i actually use them a lot. I just left them out of this one, dunno why rly.

Hmm. Will try that thing with the horns.

I also hope to master my classical skills someday XD I feel that this song is in the "getting there" cathegory, but not quite "there" yet. I mean at a level where a song can be called really good classical. This is only practice yet. I try putting more and more effort into and try new things in my future classical songs. Thanks a lot for reviewing and giving advice!

You gotta be one of the best music artist ever!!!!

I love the tubular bells in it there were great and absoluty perfect, and loved the little bells and small strings alot too!
It makes me think of this lone warrior being the worthiest and greatest hero of all time and one who has never given up and given glory to every battle hes been in and some how makes me think of you and your tallent...
You are added to my favorite artist list now and I will listen to all your songs as much as I can, This is probly one of the best songs ive ever heard on Newgrounds too, Incredible job keep it up id like to hear more!

mechanoid-9 responds:

O_O wow... thanks, though I doubt I'd be one of the best... I'm still very far away from that, but I try my best. Thanks for favving.

Oh, my. Well done.

You really captured the feeling of motivation and willpower in this one. Congratulations at top of Classical.
Pleasant melody for once in a driving song that wasn't overpowered. The chimes and strings fit well together.
The guitar and overused drum beat rather disappointed me, however.

mechanoid-9 responds:

Thanks for the positive opinion and review. By the drums do you mean the snares? It was necessary to put in so much to give the song a march feeling:/ As for the guitar... yes, I know it's crappy but it's the best I had found. Reason doesn't have a single decent rock guitar! I'm trying to find some guitar refills, but I haven't been succesful yet.
