Occasionally I like to do what is commonly referred to as "rocking out". When this kind of feeling hits me, I tend to write something that has more of an edge to it and allows me to rock my head back and forth in satisfaction. I promised everybody something more fleshed out then my previous piano solo tracks, and so here it is. I know it's not my typical sound that people are used to, but it's good to step out of that comfort zone right? In any case, enjoy the trip and let me know if you've got any suggestions for future projects.

P.S....Forgive the massive compression around the 2:20 marker...mastering is something that I will always need improving on.

What happened with the downloads though???

Omg, those downloads xD

This immerses me in an ecstatic imagery that I cannot describe. It is far more upbeat. It is not hard to listen to, although having the 'drum-n-bass' feel to it. If this makes any sense; it is a more smooth piece. Rather than a prominent drums line that just makes it feel as though you are listening to death metal. It possesses a trancic quality that I have never felt; let alone heard in a song like this. I applaud you for creating, what I feel is a new frame of music for me.
Thank you for making this song.


How am I just hearing this for the first time?? Amazing song. So much feeling. Definitely deserving of #1 :)


This song is very good, i love the peaceful yet upbeat tune. It has also reached #1 song on newgrounds, good job. People seem to love it so much, it got 2,058,387 downloads! =0 I really like it after 2:20. The intro is cool, and it makes me think of some barren icy world somewhere. Mabye like a supernova or something, anyway, this would be great for a puzzle game. NICE JOB, and if i could, i would give you a vote of 9 billion out of 5.
