This is a remake of my most popular classical song on NG. I fixed most of the issues that the original song had (this has a better piano, it's longer, better mastering...for the most part at least, etc). The only obstacle I had was the lack of good instruments. I wish I would have used better drum samples but I lost them when I formatted my computer.

The biggest improvement is definitely the piano. It's not FL Keys (whoo). Another improvement I like is the fact that the song's quality no longer "cracks" in some sections thanks to limiters. Adding to that, it has extra sections to make it longer. Overall, it's a better song, albeit it still has some flaws that I might address someday, so help me out and point them.

Most importantly, enjoy the track. All votes and comments are appreciated. I might reupload the song with minor changes soon.

Edit July 29th: Polished the toms.

Nice song, its sad, and it changed what I thought classical music is... I used to think it was just piano and a few other instruments, but you proved that anything can become a classic song. I kinda thought the same thing that Pivot did, only a bit more in depth....

-Hero and friends are engaged in a epic battle with the main evil-doer, and right before the drums kick in, the evil guy manages to separate the hero and is pounding on him... the drums kick in when the evil guy throws him and is about to defeat the hero... The companions realize this and run to his aid, but get there just as the hero falls, critically injured... together they finish off the evil guy, and at the end, the hero reawakens in a bed with his friends around him.-

Eek, hadn't noticed this had a new review haha.

Interesting description, it fits nicely with the song :)

I'm glad you liked the song and that it changed your views on music. Thanks for the review!

This is what I thought while listening:

*A slow-mo heroic moment where one of his companion tries to save the hero from certain death. But does no make it in time. And then it fades to black, Leaving us hanging, damn story lines*

Anyway, point is, that when I listen to songs like this, I want to leave to another story (happy or sad) and break away from the worlds freaking stress and that's basicly how I relaxa dn gives me insperation. Thank you for helping me relax!

Sure thing, thanks for the review!


What a touching piece you have here. I know you said that it is an improved version of another track but this is pretty good my friend. I know what you mean by limited instruments there but you did well with that you had. Keep up the great work.


GronmonSE responds:

Hey, thanks for the kind words.

Looking forward to your compositions.


I really enjoyed the piano and the strings combination. It was bit fast for a slow song, but it was still great. Sound quality was good and the effort was good. Amazing end product.

Great stuff here

God I love this chord progression. And the piano is indeed a beautiful instrument, Combined with the strings. Even though it's at a decently fast BPM it still maintains the emotion intended. I really do enjoy this man. Very full of feeling. It's got a sadness to it that you just don't seem to find anymore.
