but it sounds more like something for castle crashers
This is so amazing the mountains of Scotland are trembling before its awesomeness!
Amazing + cool '80s feeling
First of all, this song is amazing. It's great, it has a cool melody, and has a cool late '80s, early '90s feeling to it, probably because of the guitar, which is very cool. And, last but not least, the coolest thing about this song, is that the guitar gives it the cinematographic feeling of films like "Black Rain" with Michael Douglas or "Year of the Dragon" with Mickey Rourke (both from the '80s), with a touch of modernity to it.
So, about the melody and instruments; melody was really cool, like most of your songs. The instruments; this was interesting, most of the instruments you used, well acctually all of them, are instruments you often use in your songs, and they all gave a good kick-ass feeling to this song, like that epic trailer sounding part at 4:49. Except that the guitar you used felt kinda old, not saying it was bad, like I said before, it's really cool, but what was funny is having this very modern, trailer like sound being invaded by a guitar that seems like it's strait from the '80s. Very funny, and very cool.
I really don't have much more to say, except that you better make some more stuff that sounds like the '80s heheh. :P
And, I've decided to make a scene for this song:
Chinatown, Manhattan, 1987
These were the days where the brick walls in chinatown were still all red, where a bunch of cars from the '70s were still around, and when a lot of crimes were still commited...
(0:17) Its night, the street neons are all lit up, there's a slight, cold rain, the kind that's a real pain. 22:09 P.M. the police finally arrive on a fresh crime scene, located in a dark alley behind a big parking building, a young chinese man with a slit throat. 22:32 P.M. a dirty, red 1974 trans am arrives. It stops next to the alley. The driver comes out, his name's inspector Frank Cortigan (Nicholas Lea). 37 year old Frank has been inspector for a couple of years now, and everyone knows that when Frank shows up, that's means Frank's in charge, no questions asked. He slowly walks through the alley, he sees the body, stops to look at it, he then lits a smoke.
(0:34) The investigation's on, Frank rides around chinatown, looking for the right people to talk to, and it doesn't take much time, since he knows this neighborhood very well. (1:25) After talking to a few people, he then finds a guy who's clearly hiding something, he takes him out onto an alley behind a restaurant, and beats him good. He tells him the triad/chinese mob is responsible for the death of the young man. The situation is getting serious... But Frank's ready, even if he's got to face the triads.
(2:33) The '74 trans am suddely flies through the streets, followed by a group of slick black sedans. The Triads. Aerial view of the chase, the chinese mob attempts to fire at the red vehicle, in vain. The shots echo throughout the entire neighborhood. Other scenes show up at the same time as the chase, Frank interrogating a mobster, and getting mad, or running on building tops followed by a bunch of chinese men in suits. (3:33) One of the black sedans closest to the trans am gets a flat tire, swirves against a concrete wall which sends it flying against the others. A crash can be heard, pieces of glass and metal fly through the red alley, and it all ends with an explosion. (3:41) More interrogating, more blood...
(4:15) Frank drives his car throughout some streets, takes a smoke, his zippo lighter, lits it up. Another scene where he fights off a lone triad member, hoping to get some information...
(4:49) Now this is the kick-ass trailer part, more sedans chasing the trans am, Frank running in the street holding his pistol, another chase... (4:58) Frank fighting off a mobster in some crappy hotel room, one of the black, slick sedans doing a barrel roll in the air, and Frank going through a window. (5:08) Frank's silhouette, smoking.
Hope you enjoyed this super long scene man,
Wow, what a great scene you've created! I loved reading through it while listening to the music. You should become a writer :)
Thanks for the great review!
Thats amazing.. a lot of changed things like 3:40 especially but wow.. nice
Thanks- glad you could hear the changes!
Kudos, my man! You are so at home in this medium. I love that in all your pieces I've heard (even in those I didn't care for) you are always completely in control of where your music starts, where it's going, and how it gets there--your mastery of form is your greatest strength!
Thanks Ben! Always a pleasant surprise to see a review by you :)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
