'A bit plain'
Pretty cool short,
This song reminded me of the first Unreal game.
I like the combination of the deep drumms and the violins, but it just sounded a bit to plain. I could sort of feel the war theme in there, but it was actually a little bit to calm for war you know.
You should listen to some of the soundtracks from the movie 'Gladiator'. I believe they won an oscar or something with their music. Anyway their songs are what I think you were going for with this song, they validate from calm 'silence before the storm moments' to raging battle moments.
Anyway I hope you can do something with that.
overall pretty cool, would be a good fit in an epic RPG game.
