Here's a little tune I made in around an hour. Maybe you could use it for a menu theme for some Egyptian-ish game or something.

This uses East/West for all of the sounds you're hearing minus the choir and drums, where the choir is Magnus Choir and the drums are downloaded drum samples. The melody at the beginning sounds familiar, I don't know why. Also, if there are any discordancies, tell me, I'm not so experienced in music and don't know how to harmonize at all.

This song is both Hip-Hop and Ambient; Hip-Hop because of the Hip-Hop style drums, and Ambient because of the long notes with powerful and deep background depth. I think this shifts more towards the Ambient side, though - if you disagree, tell me. Sorry for making it so short - I can't stand making Ambient songs because they're so darn boring to make IMO, and besides, this is aimed to be used in a flash, not to be a full song. Anyway, if anyone wants to use it in a flash, you don't need to ask permission, but it'd be cool if you credit me in the flash's credits or something. I uploaded it with a lower bitrate than usual to make the filesize more flash-friendly.
Anyhow, thanks for listening, and I hope you enjoy it! Please vote and comment: I'll respond to all reviews and review back if it's helpful.

~Very catchy.
~Sets tone just right.


This is very good! The only thing I wish it could do was loop smoothly. Regardless, this song is going to into a game I've been working on for almost three years. It fits!


Step responds:

Wow, awesome :D. Glad you like it man. If I could think of a con, it'd be that it's short :P.

Feel free to use it in the game, I'd loop it for you to if I wasn't on holiday...

Thanks for the review!

Quite Epic

9/10 stars, 5/5 rating.

This is VERY nice for a game I'm planning, where the player has been sentenced to die by the Pharaoh. After the player is killed, there is a whole world (the afterlife) where they must collect clues and battle underworld creatures to piece together a proof for Lord Anubis as to why they should not be there.

Will DEFINITELY keep this in mind.

Step responds:

Glad you liked it man. Your game plot sounds absolutely epic and original. If you ever need me to help you out with audio for your flash, just ask, I didn't work too hard on this submission, so I can easily build on it, make it loop and all that :).

Thanks for the review!
