start of the song takes place in a tranquill valley. Green grass covers lush ground. Now and again a tree stands out, swaying gently in the breeze. As a low rumble calls in an army from the north, the air suddenly tensions, and all the beauty of the scenery seems to fade. The rumbling is answered by a battle cry from the south, and another from the east. Almost instantly, battalions from each army (examplified by the choir/organ, the brass, and the strings) swarm over eachother and a fierce battle insues, covering the soft grass with stains of blood and diing bodies. almost as instantly as the battle began, it ends with an abrupt heartbeat of the last living warrior.

apart from the story now,
this is definatly not one of my best works, but i had to hurry to make it
theres a glitch about halfway through the track, causing it to skip and after putting it from staff to audio have a dozen times, it still continues to happen, sry


This has the potential to be an amazing song

There's only a few things holding it back.

Reverb- not nearly enough. The lack of reverb is very noticable in the snares, which sound absolutely dry.
Timpani- Having it play A over again even when the bassline had moved to D was probably not a great musical choice.
Mix- Too many instruments in the same octave range. In particular, the section around and following :56, when the trumpet, violin, and organ are all playing at the same time, nothing stands out.
Ending- Way too abrupt.

But well done emphasizing dynamics and great choices. Those two are the main pluses on this piece. If those changes above are implemented though, you could have the next top30 song!

wow, there should definatly be more reviews like this on newgrounds. I have actually worked on a new version of this song that im using as a theme for Cerberus in my Niburu soundtrack, and I'll definatly take the things youve said into consideration when im putting the final touches on it


The poetry is good, do you make things like that as a side hobby? Although there are some grammar problems but that's beside the point. This song is appropriately titled. Well done! Hope to see more of work in the future along with your poetry. Good Luck to you.

LacrimosaMuse responds:
