~The creak of the heavy wooden doors slowly open before you as you step into the alabaster hallway of the cathedral, the old organ's chords ricocheting off every wall, surrounding you in sonic energy as you sit down in a pew. Long, translucent power cords filled with pure energy of every shade and color shoot through the monstrous yet rustic apparatus of the organ; an electronic choir chimes in, and the piano starts to dance as you're lifted off your feet to the music.~


Mixed this up during my lonely hours of spring break. Just another venture into DnB; if anyone enjoys it, then I think I've done my job. ^.^ Please rate and review; feedback is always very appreciated.



Drums are too high pass; everything is way too compressed.

Arranged like a boss; the main high pitch lead could use a break however.

I feel ya on the drums. I think I only used a default multiband compressor on the mix, though... o.o I'll have to check the project files. Thanks for the feedback!

Freakin' awesome!

Normally I don't write reviews and such for videos and songs, however this song deserves one. The intro in my opinion was great, I wasn't exactly sure where it was going to go, but when it got there it blew me off my feet. Amazing song. Keep up the great work and I hope to hear many more wonderful songs like this from you.

Heh, thanks for the feedback! <3


Love the track. The drum panning is awesome. Great job.


This is amaizing, I have to agree with http404error that the ending is too abrupt. But I see from your response that it looks like you are working on it, I hope to hear more from you.

First I was like, 'meh', but then I went &quot;O.O&quot;

The drum shroud is well-timed, but becomes distracting farther into the piece. The organ might use some more low-freq. Wow! This was fun to listen to, and I think you did a great job on the melodies and harmonies. A spring break well-spent, indeed.

The awesomeness gets progressively more awesome as the piece gets on, but it's a bit slow getting there.

Ending was too abrupt for me. Instant flaccidity. :\

Glad you liked it. ^^

Tried getting some more low-freq into the organ, but it kinda got drowned out and just made the whole piece a bit messy towards the middle... I'll see if I can remaster this thing sometime.

And yeah, looking back, I need to change that ending...

Thanks for the feedback!
