Video game power metal with a touch of winter's storm.

Also, got lazy for a more in-depth description so I'll paste what I put on my blog:

"At long last. After four months of not releasing anything that has guitars in it, I've finally finished something that may actually be worth the time waiting for it. Multiple problems plagued me from releasing anything heavy, school being one of them, and a very injured CPU that would probably shut itself down if I try to run a project file like The Black Wind Howls in realtime. So if I'm not doing schoolwork, I'd try to compose, but if I try to compose, my CPU overheats and dies. I can't game, I can't compose using heavy amounts of CPU. Just great. Then again, that heavy CPU use honestly has led me to care more and more about the tiny little aesthetics that make up a song so much that my original composing style and creativity took a hit.

Solution? Screw the new templates; I'm using the old one. The one that led me to success in the first place. Boom. The content you'll hear is all original, if not greatly inspired by other artists. For this one song I'm my 2009 self again, and to a certain extent my 2007 self because I'm composing the way I truly would without any obstructions that would put me on a different track. Maybe you'll even hear LEAF Music Division. The difference here is that I'm combining everything from the past with current knowledge, resulting into a 4-minute 44-second video game power metal anthem. With a touch of winter, no less; just the way I'd make it."

Very Cool!!
Too sad It's not Popular. (9495 Listens)

This music is extremely ambitious! It doesn't take long to get right in on the action! My only complaint is that it's a little too repetitive. It's still wonderful to listen to. This is truly heavy metal! I can just imagine people constantly playing their instructions. It even builds up to a nice pause at the end.

That can be useful when listening to this as a loop. It must be cool to look back at all the stuff you made. It certainly led up to something good. Some great action game could use this. It's pretty popular, at least compared to many other songs I've reviewed.

rtnario responds:

Hmm, well I did try to change it up with some melodic variations and added instruments XDD And well, that's exactly what I'm doing now, a year after your review. Thank you!

This reminds me of the music found in the F-Zero games, i can even see this being played during a high-speed, high-tech, intense race on a seriously twisted track.

rtnario responds:

Would definitely love to see something like that!

It really sounds like some anime theme song, if you know what I mean.

rtnario responds:

Of course I do, I was inspired by the same thing after all!

Metal isn't necessarily my thing, but you've got some pretty sweet music there. I can't think of a single thing wrong with what you've composed. Go on, have a perfect score.

rtnario responds:

Hahaha, that sounds real encouraging, glad you liked it! :)
