OMG 10 MINUTES LONG WTF!?!?!?!?!!?!?!!?!?!!?!

Yes, I know it's ridiculously long. If you take the time to skip around though, you may find many parts you like.

This was written after I saw Avatar (The first time). Reminds me of the emptiness of the universe and the solitude of human life. I don't know why Avatar inspired me to write such a song, but it did.

Nexus + z3ta = win.

It's been quite a while since I submitted anything to newgrounds (close to a year, I think). I might put all the classical music I wrote on here as well.

Bitrate cut down to 112 to shrink file size.

An extremely well thought out trance anthem. If you threw this on Trance Nation I seriously wouldn't even know it wasn't a big name. The track is fast paced without being obnoxious, and the melodies change flawlessly. The transitions are nothing short of beautiful.

The effort you put into this really paid off, and the length of the song is very appreciated. The variety of melodies and synths are just really easy to get lost in for the entire 10 minutes, and I don't at all find myself wanting to change the page or do something else - and that's what makes a great song.

It seems to lack that extra just insanely amazing melody to push it over to a 10...but I downloaded this, and what keeps happening with songs like this is that I play them later and they grow on me and I wish I could have rated 10, lol. So who knows what I'll end up thinking a week from now.

Either way, this is a great piece. It takes you on an interesting journey, a journey I'll be experiencing again sometime soon ;) Keep up the great work.

Thanks for the review. I actually thought the length would kind of detract from its overall appeal, but I seem to be wrong.

Glad you liked this song! And thanks for the vote/dl!

Enjoy your trip through this dreary existence.

TheBellmaker responds:

Thanks for listening!!!


I like the melody. When I say that, I don't mean it lightly. I see this as something a person could dance to one night, and fight to the next. It's aggressive without being aggressive, yet passionate to the core and displays a certain attitude that does the song justice. Very well done my friend.

10 Fav

TheBellmaker responds:

I thank you very much for your review, and the fav. I may also post my classical pieces if you wish to listen as well.

Regardless, I will check out some of your other pieces in the future.

Thanks again!

Best dancefloor trance EVER.

The ONLY reason that this didn't get a ten... is nonexistent. Something I can't seem to describe. But it is long for clubs, has a chord progression that doesn't get old, and is just genius. Downloaded.

TheBellmaker responds:

Thanks for review/dl

Yeah, sometimes I feel that way when reviewing other songs. It's that thing that separates awesomeness from perfect awesomeness, that eludes explanation.

Thanks for listening!!
