Dark World Crusader (RAC4)

This is my entry for the Represent a Country 4 contest (June 26th on Radiogrounds). It's not too far removed from my usual body of work. Still classical and still dark(ish). For this particular track I went back to the sound I first tried out in the RAC2 contest with "Dark World Adagio", which was kind of ominous and darkly hopeful, and built a song that deals with a similar sound, but adds feelings inspired by courage and honor, a bit of light in all that darkness.

And here are a few words about the contest, from the contest creator NeonProject :

"Represent a Country is a series of Audio contests on Newgrounds hosted by myself. The aim of the contest is for each participant to represent a country of their choice and submit an original and entertaining piece of music. Participants who take part in the contest go on to become well known across the Audio part of Newgrounds, artists such as LK412 and Chungstarr have gone on to develop further sucess after taking part in the contest. The contest has not only become a celebration of world culture, but has also become a huge celebration of the audio portal artists."


Amazing! I'm totally going to try and use this at the end of one of my book readings, probably after a tragic war scene.(Which I haven't quite written yet. :3) Amazing!

Thank you ! Happy you liked it so much.

Very dark atmosphere

Great music, sounds like it belongs in a Legacy of Kain game.

popraz responds:

Thank you !


I think a better name for this is 'The Graveyard of Heroes'

popraz responds:

Interesting name. I'm glad you like the song and thank you for listening.


This would sound awesome in a medieval game or film. You're a favorite to win this contest IMO. Cheers!

Honestly, I had my doubts about this song, don't know about winning the contest, but I'm honestly happy to see such a positive reaction. Thank you and good luck at the contest.


-I've really come to love your use of atmosphere and feeling in song build-up and overall make-up of the song. It's great for background work and to convey feelings that might otherwise be overlooked in a sequence if it had no sound at all.

-Classical instruments are always the best for this and I love just sitting down every once in a while to listen to some classical music when i'm doing some work. It's really quite relaxing to listen to while doing work. I don't really have too much to say about this piece in particular but I liked how everything came together in the end. While it wasn't your best work IMO I did like how it ended.

Thank you very much ! I too enjoy listening to classical music while working, though I must admit it's usually soundtrack type classical music. I'm also thrilled that you enjoy my work so much. I really appreciate it a lot.
