This is my latest track. Actually, it was one of eleven quick songs I made, and out of all of them, I liked this one--so I developed it, and made it sound good, then put it on the shelf for a few months (because of the holidays). When the wait was over, I made the very cool intro you hear now and did some EQing.

As always, I made sure it got Karco's seal of approval before I posted it here--I don't think I'll do that anymore, though. It's nice to be sure it's good, but I think I've got the hang of it now.

Well, enjoy the music! And don't forget to review!


Very nice tune.

Would fit well in a modern RPG

Sounds nice, but it needs more overall movement.

Nice reversed intro. You're really fond of that lead synth. The melody is very nice. I think the rave synth really lacks power in this song. I like to use those kind of supersaws as huge leads, but you're using is as a sort of backdrop, so it's a bit weird for me. The beat is kinda underwhelming, too, although it's technically competent, with everything mixed nicely (including non-percussion instruments, for that matter). Hmm...I don't know why I'm so skeptical of this song. The piano is okay, but I'm not sure it works perfectly against the lead synth part. Also, the lack of variation in the underlying melody makes this song pretty dull, excepting the key change at 1:36 followed by the nice section with a new melody at 1:50. That was a good change. The piano part against it sounds pretty good at first, especially on the high notes, although towards the end of the melody, as the supersaws are fading back in, it feels like a melodic stretch to me. That supersaw line really irks me, by the way. Not enough variation, and it overrides the variation in the melodies, which isn't actually all that much, come to think of it. Sorry for such a critical review. Still though, it sounds pretty good, although it really needs more movement. Keep it up!

Thanks, critical is good if I know that the person is sincere =p. I will keep your advice in mind when I work on my new stuff.


Having listened to the song, it songs nice.. The beginning of the song has a nice start to it and the music blends together and sounds well together.. Overall 9/10 Very well done, I am impressed.. :-)

ShirkDeio responds:

Glad you liked it. I like it too :D

Very nice.

this was well though I can tell but the piano seems a little... "dot dot" "stab stab" when it should be a "slash slash" kind of thing. other than that I think this is really good!

ShirkDeio responds:

Um...this isn't a video game ;)

Thanks for the review :D

There is nothing about this song that I don't like.
And there is nothing about this song that could be improved.
It is the most perfect song I've EVER heard, E-V-E-R!!!!
