I like it!
They dont mean the volume of the track, they mean the mastering. Youve hit redzone alot on this with the drums, making some speakers crackle and sound distortion will occur on alot of sound systems. Instead of having it so loud, bring it all down and try and master it.
Anyway, onto the track I like it. I like the drums, but it would have portrayed so much more dominant if it were the brass that came through, you have a nice theme going on there too, it's somewhat lost unfortuanately due to the drums. I think you should remaster and upload this again, bringing down the volume of the drums so we can hear the amount of work you obviously have put into this.
Well the best way to review this is to not compare it to the last one and I won't. So by itself the intro of course was good, but the rise and fall around the climax seemed lacking. Not bad, just that there could of been more there. The best climax is always built up and resolved in detail, although I will say that the end was appropriate. Overall I will give this a 3.5 (rounded up of course). Just expand the rise and fall this song will be in every newb flash and cliche war movies.
The intro is very good. You need to have that in the middle though and some multiple variances of it through the song.
The drums are so loud that they make the speakers crack, which would sound good in a thrash metal song, but not in this type of thing.
However, there was much more added that made it sound less like a scene from an educational movie, and more like an epic climax in an RPG.
I'll still give a 10/10 even though the percussions were a bit off. It wasn't bad enough to kill my ears though it did surprise me. Plus, I think I'm going to download this track and use it while playing some new PC games I bought :D
only thing that sticks out at me is that loud kick thing at 0:11, turn that down and this song would sound great =]
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
