An unlikely hero's redemption through suffering. If you have any tips on improving this, I'm open to any kinf of critique, especially regarding mixing issues. Thank you.

UPDATE -- Some changes in percussion instrumentation and timing in the middle section.

Thanks to madboss and his fav for letting me know you Popraz! Like he said, good instrumentation, creating a feeling of suffer and tension without ear raping. I really liked it. Gonna check out the rest of your stuff. Keep it good pal, you're on the right track!

popraz responds:

Thank you ! It's great to see I haven't been forgotten here on Newgrounds.

Great atmospheric song

Hy there!

It was quite a long time ago than I wrote my last review about one of your tracks but I always keep my eyes on your name on the NG list!

I must say you have great skills and talent on composing dramatic songs and these are really encapsulateing the drama, suffering - this one really brings back a suffering-like feeling. And I think the melody, the repetitive drums and the overlapped strings give these effects - so the songs arrangements are fiting perfectly for what you've created for.

To be honest I cant tell you any ways to improve it - I like it as it is right now. The beginning effect was great by the way and I liked the ending as well.

So great job, 10/10, 5/5 and faved!

Keep up your great work and congrats!


popraz responds:

Wow ! Thank you !

Very dramatic!

The beginning instantly brought me in!
But there are some timing issues, unless those were intentional.
I like it but I think it could use some work.

As for your mixing, everything sounds clear to me.
I should also mention your great instrumentation.
I like the blend.

Good job.

popraz responds:

Well, the timing is a bit weird because I kept overlapping different layers and the changes in pacing are kind of abrupt, I just kept digging deeper, and tried to balance the layers. Thank you, it's a very helpful review ! i'll try and fix it !
