This theme was originally something I didn't really feel like submitting due to me being uncertain of the quality. The reason I've submitted it now is to actually try to gain positive and constructive feedback in order to improve. I hope that it'll either live up to the standard I've previously set, surpass it or at least be of some entertainment to you as a listener.

Takes use of the full orchestra, starts off in Minor, ends in Dorian.

Never be uncertain again.

Amazing orchestral work. Nice work with the brass and persussion as usual. And the woodwinds and strings are really good, too. One thing, though. This may seem contradictory to what I just said, but work on putting more woodwind solos in pieces. As much as love French Horn, a goos oboe or bassoon now and then wouldn't hurt.
But still 10/10 and 5/5, you're doing great, keep it up!

nicely done

this is a good song but the styleing is more a remeberence song it reminds me of how many live have been lost to war not that there is war or the feeling of urgencey in war use more drums and bass less strings next time it also has a final fantasy feeling to it

Nicely Done

I would have left out the piano. I'm sure lots of people will disagree with this, including you, but I feel it sort of takes away from the emotion of the strings and brass. It sort of cuts them off. I think another thing this needs is more bass. My orchestra director always tells us the deeper the better, and that should be applied here. The snare could also have a few rolls somewhere in there maybe. Really good though. Keep this stuff coming!

a pretty good war song

but some things seem off like a solid percussive presence such as a cadence or possibly more tuba would be a quick fix, however i would be really happy if u made it less graceful and gave it a little dose of reality because it is a WAR song and WAR is loud . The piece is great don't get me wrong but there is room for improvement and i like it regardless anyways so good job can't wait to hear the next one.

I would have tweaked it a little...

I would have used the brass a little more heavily. A war chant shouldn't be primarily strings.
The snare cadence should have continued throughout the entire song. It could have also been a little more complex than just accented triplets. (Being a percussionist myself, I always think that ANY march should be built around a decent cadence.)
