It's actually not very classical, since it contains elements of electronica for ambiental parts and some non-classical percussion arrangement, but it is classical at heart. Please comment, give suggestions for improvement, or simply tell me what you think. I'm especially interested in volume and mixing issues you feel don't work.

OST Quality !!

If played with real instrument it might be used in a film !
Very inspiring , I can thought about 4 stories that suite this song.

Look for "Armageddon-The launch" in Youtube you'll find a great example of touching song.
The other OST of "Armageddon" is quite good too.


that oriental flute gave me the chills.... very well crafted man.... the persuccion was very good... the choirs might need some better samples in my opinion or a better equalizing in order to remove the muffleness of it.... but its a great piece....

A definite 10 man.... great work

Thank you very much. Yeah, I'm still wrestling with the choir samples, anyway they sound a little more natural than what I used to use as a choir.

Great Atmosphere.

The low brass section sounds amazing accompanying the choir, which might i add sounds just as good. Great intro and atmospheric samples added here. The beat sounds along the same lines as the great man Don Davis as well, which can only be a good thing. Very nice.

It has to come

I agree with Bullion about it being to slow at first but i think of it as three men looking below the horizen thinking of all that has happened.
The first man sees sadness in what happened. 0:00
The second man just wants to keep going and finish what he started. 1:45
The third man finds happyness for help in all the distrution.2:52

Thats how i find the feeling of this song. I'd like to here more of the up beat music that inside you. Bring out the third man and feel good in what he did.

popraz responds:

That's pretty deep, and pretty close to how I envisioned the 3 parts of the song. Thank you for the review. Sadness/darkness, Battle/not giving up, and last, not really happiness, but a kind of surrender to the harsh reality, acceptance, redemption through sacrifice.
