The Promise (Michael Nyman)

My take and subsequent metalization of the themesong from the movie "The Piano".

The original composer is Michael Nyman and this particular piece is really something else. There's such a wide array of emotions and power in the original that it's really impossible to recapture in a cover, but I did my best to do it justice. In the second half I ofcourse introduce the original to my regular dose of metal goodness. I picked the genre "Classical Rock" simply because its a classical piece mixed with rock / metal at the end. (NG really should get a subgenre category...)

Hope you enjoy this one as it's my second time covering this track (but first one to see the light of day on the web though.)

Sorber, goddamit! You're the man! Already dunno how you make this miracles of yours... Soulkeeping, indeed!


Lashmush responds:

Thanks a lot! Quick as always, Mr. Snegov. :3

Pretty *%*&%ing good!

This is great, I love it, very creative! Out of the ordinary, I was just expecting a redo of the song, but I read the description, and it gave me hope. And that hope prevailed!

Lashmush responds:

I'm glad you liked it!
