An intense horror theme scored for full orchestra! There's very little music like this on newgrounds, so it may surprise some listeners. This is my first attempt at writing an atonal piece of music. However, there are hints of tonality in some sections of this piece, so in a sense I failed. Regardless, I found writing this piece very rewarding because I proved to myself that I could write something other than epic orchestral music for a change. With that being said, this piece required an immense amount of concentration and effort, so please review fairly even if this style of music doesn't appeal to you.

good creativity you deserve recognition. maybe there is one little thing that enters to my mind is maybe you could have toned down the chimes a little? maybe used in certain areas? i dunno otherwise it sounds pretty damn good i could not make up something like this so, excellent.


Only one sentence comes in mind. You can run, but you can't hide.

you could climb the bell tower and chime all the bells, too...but that wouldn't be very smart.


Man, you surely did a great job on this, I can imagine how many sleepless night you had spent on this composition (since I've passed so many nights on my composition too :P ), the instruments are well placed, and I loved those crescendo brasses in the ending, very very good indeed.

Nice work and peace,

i love it.

It beats most of the classical music out there. The bells and other mechanical sounds mixed with the low darker tones are amazing. I really just imagine an abandoned place ^_^

Truly An Amazing Horror Piece!

I like all sorts of music, let it be from classical to techno or heavy metal. (Although I prefer classical).
This is like some kind of feeling where you're just in a nightmare where you can't escape. Stuck in an abandoned clock tower.
You know, the strange thing is that this reminds me of some dark nightmare I have rarely........ it's like the same thing but kind of freaky. Strangely, I kind of am amused by that feeling.
I cannot wait to hear more of your pieces.
Keep up the great work!!!
Suitable for a horror game or movie...
