This Theme was Written as a Theme for my own Character, Darrel Ancalagon, who is something of an Enigmatic, Darker, Heroic Character. Most of you will know Darrel from his appearances in Sprite-Based, MegaMan work, if at all.
This was among the First Songs I ever composed (Being either the Second, or the Third, I believe), and since i wanted it to suit Darrel - and by extension, myself - as well as possible, it's gone through the most transition of all my Songs. I realize it's a rather simple piece, but since the Song was meant to convey a Solemn, Dark Medieval/Gothic Mood, I think the Simplicity is actually quite fitting.

By all means, comment and rate, but, keep in mind that I'm still quite new at this, so try not to be too blunt or harsh if you have criticism to offer.

For those of you who may be curious, Darrel's Surname, "Ancalagon", (Also part of the Song's Title) is actually a reference to J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-Earth, in which Ancalagon (the Black) was the First Dragon to both Breathe Fire, and Fly. It is implied that his Flames were the hottest of all the Fire-Breathing Dragons of Middle-Earth and, though they may not have been hot enough to destroy The One Ring, they may have actually been able to damage it.
Ancalagon is mentioned only in passing in "The FellowShip of the Ring", by Gandalf as he places The Ring into the fire in Bag-End. He features far more prominently in Tolkien's "The Silmarillion", however, which describes the Early Ages of Middle-Earth.
During the First Age, Melkor/Morgoth (The Tolkienic equivalent to Satan) bred Ancalagon the Black and the rest of the Flying, Fire-Breathing Dragons from an impure stock of Maiar (Divine beings below the Valar, essentially equivalent to Angels) to wage War on the Valar (Essentially, the pantheon Gods of Middle-Earth). Once Morgoth's Dragons were unleashed, their Charge, Fronted by Ancalagon, was able to turn the tables of the War of Wrath completely, driving the Valar back to the Gates of their Realms. EƤrendil, the "Blessed" battled with Ancalagon the Black aboard his Airborne Ship for an entire Day before defeating him, which signaled the beginning of Morgoth's final defeat.

This Song was originally Composed using NoteWorthy Composer 2, in the MIDI Format, before being Converted into MP3 Format using FL Studio 8.

not flowing


DragonZenith responds:

Hm... I thought it flowed alright when I Wrote it, and most others I've shown it to agree... Though you're entitled to your opinion, of course.
I guess I'll see how big of an issue it is, and then see what I can do to fix it.
