This is a very intense and melodic song that I had a lot of fun composing. It's been a while since I've written something this powerful.

I wanted to express betrayal and deception in this song. Something you thought you could trust that was almost beautiful is now ruined.

Enjoy mates =)

tfw first review in 10 years

My favorite song on ThirdStyle.

So fantastic! The only song on ThirdStyle i've played more then 3 times... (I think my plays on this song are somewhere in the 20's, haha.) Everything sounds so perfect. I don't really know how to describe it.
Just really, really, really, really, REALLY good job.

"Black Snow"

I saw the title and couldn't resist, given my name here on NG. It's 3am where I am now, so I'm in no state to write one of my typical crazy-ass hits-the-character-limit reviews for you, but in my half dead state this sounds pretty nifty. I do love 8 bit music in all its forms and variations.

I don't know if you portrayed your theme extremely well, though... To me it sounds more like, to relate this to a gaming or movie experience, the feelings of someone who has nothing left to lose and takes whatever final step in their journey knowing full well that they will die in the process or some such. I can hear some of the "betrayal and deception" you said you were aiming for, but it seems to be hidden under a couple layers of other emotions.

Nonetheless, it is a solid and powerful piece. If you'd like a "real" review from me, send me a PM and I'll get around to it when I can.

Power to you, KgZ.

Awesome game music!

This would fit perfectly into a roleplaying game. Very nice melody! The mixture between piano and synthesizers in the background together with the 8 bit lead worked out very well! Some more breaks / fills would have been nice .I especially liked the ending part around ~1:43, the alternation of the beat was a nice addition. Before I heard it, I wanted to give you a 9/10 because it sounded a bit monotonous, this makes it 10/10. :]
