So, I resubmitted this with some minor tweaking.

Anyway, I'm still relatively new to musical composition, so I'd love some comments or constructive criticism.

Hope you enjoy.

Also, I'd really appreciate it if someone could tell me what genre this is closest to, as I usually have no idea how to categorize some of my songs.

I love how the song makes me very nostalgic of the Banjo-Kazooie games on Nintendo 64, but with that extra edginess. Very solid. I love it.


This awesome! The start of it reminds me of Zelda. Then the guitar comes in. Awesome!


Ah God that was heavenly, Simply amazing. Great work. 8/5

Waltz of the Slain, indeed...

The snow fell softly on the infinitely numerous and unmarked graves of Russia that night. Beautiful and incandescent the moons beams lit the carefully balanced masses of snow that hung in the evergreens--not unlike the candlelight of ballroom chandeliers. The he stood in the midst of the silence, afraid even the slightest movement or breath would disturb the marvelously delicate scene.
As the clouds were eased away by the breeze, the full splendor of the moonlight on the new fallen snow brought forth the images of the souls of the slain, whom danced with more zeal and life than when they were true citizens of this realm...

Sorry, if I ruined your mental image of this song...It was what I immediately got upon hearing it. Very beautiful, excellent job. Again, I hope you aren't offended by my interpretation... ^^
