Hope you enjoy!


Edit 20 Aug. 2009 - now usign "Ancient Thunder" as an alternate title.



I love the way you get an epic feel from this song. It starts off with that epic melody, which then transitions to what I like the best which is the strings at 1:10. Almost makes it feel like a camera panning over our heroes as they progress on their quest. This would make really good soundtrack music! The melodies and counter melodies you have work very well together. The end almost makes it sound like the soundtrack for a trailer.

Before I heard this, I had the impression that the NewGrounds community had poor taste in orchestral works, because there is usually nothing good in the top 10 classical list. I have now changed my mind.

High-quality music and on such an advanced level too. I am stunned, literally.

Instant favourite - loved the orchestration, your approach on the piece, the dynamics and your use of strings!

2 thumbs.

You sir, are a keeper.

I think it needs a bit more bass end on the "main theme," but wow, this was a breath of fresh air. Geniusness. Whether you listen to soundtrack music or not, this piece really captured that style and further. It was music, not just a rendition. Loved the buildup from 1:10 on. Just brilliant.
