This is something I've been working on for a bit. I'm proud of it. It's just a test, so I never got around to making a full version of this song. I could if I get enough requests for it, but until then, I don't plan on it. I'm using this as a first test of a long line of orchestral rock pieces. Orch rock is one of my favorite kinds of music and I believe the world should have more of it. It just sounds SO freaking epic! LOLZ I hope to supply the world with more epicness. I'd love to hear feedback so I'll know what to work on in the future. Keep rocking on, Newgrounds!

*iUPDATE!* This is the full version of this song. I really hope everyone enjoys it. I've put a LOT of work into it, so I'm hoping to get a bunch of good reviews *crosses fingers and hopes for best* It has better mixing and live drums that totally DON'T suck! It's made to loop, for all the people who want to use it in animations, games, and whatnot. Hope you enjoy, and PLEASE comment. Until next time, my Newgroundian friends!

Think it's very good, although I think it needs more build up before it hits the main theme - maybe start it off semi-quiet with the first Nightmare theme, then segway into the full theme with the "chase across the moon" scene, which you have at the end of the piece currently, and then into the main asskicking. =)

Kirby? Rock? Now you are talking!

Extremely well put together, good flow and almost masterful use of instruments. This is an interesting song to listen too, as you can easily pick out the Kirby tune, but it has it's own uniqueness.

Ways to improve: Take creative liberty and extend the song. As it is, it is not long enough for me to slap on a 10 sticker and call it a day.

On a personal note, I am glad to see someone taking a different approach to Video game music by using Rock Orchestra. It truely brings most video game Midi's alive in brilliant new ways.

Rock Kirby On, and Keep it up! <[=_^]>!~ (Yes, that is an attempt at Rock Kirby)


Not bad.

It's very strong, but it doesn't have the power it should. Boost the volume and bass more, and it'll be even better. How do you get those voilin sounds and those guitar finger lifting sounds?

vcrock responds:

I totally agree on the "power" of the song. I feel it's lacking as well, but, as I said, this is only a test. It's a stepping stone to improvement and every bit of constructive criticism I can get will help. I just had a brainstorm of ideas to improve this song and make it uber awesome though(Funny how that always happens AFTER one submits the content. lmao)! However, I'm overjoyed that Newgrounds has added options to edit submitted songs. WoOt!! I used Garritan Personal Orchestra for the violins and the guitar is a Gibson Les Paul Custom. Keep an eye out for an update to this song that will blow this one out of the water. I have the attention span of a fruit fly though, so it may never come into fruition. lmao


i know that not many people come into the Audio Portal since that the Flash Portal is much cooler, but this...is...GODLIKE! This is definately going to my favorites! Kepp up the good work! ^_^
