Sorry, but I really don't see how this could be used in a combat song...
This song is reeeaaally slow for one thing. And there is a lot of empty space with nothing going on. There's also no melody present in the song. Battle songs are usually upbeat for the whole excitement factor and I don't think that's here. This is more of a... walking through a barren mountainside, all by yourself, looking for hope.
Yeah, it does lack a beat and 'sub-tone'. I think my vision in the beginning of the song was kind of lost while ideas for short pieces came to my mind. But I can't really say, for me, that it doesn't hold any tension at all. 'Combat' may not have been the right term to describe it... I just don't know what other word could fit it.
I thought your description at the end of the review was eloquently put, but it also surprised me. It's not really something I would imagine listening to this. Interesting to read, though. Thanks for the review.
Hmm pretty good.
I don't think I'd listen to this in combat though. I usually have my ear plugs in anyway.
Well, thanks. I know 'combat' is not really that great a description, but I'm glad I could at least please your ears with something I composed.
