Very cool sounds!
It would be very good in a war movie with British peaple in it

Love-Hate-War responds:

Lol, thanks. Why British?


I make little movies and I plan to use this. Fantastic!!!! Will give credit to you.

Love-Hate-War responds:

Heh, i'll be sure to check it out! Thanks alot!!

Very very awesome!

I loved this piece, especially the harpiscord and flute duet in the beginning. This song feels very heroic, sweet, and moving! ^_^

Keep up the good work! I can't wait to see what you come up with next! :)


Love-Hate-War responds:

Thanks alot for the review! It's an old idea I had, i've just recently gathered together the effort to finish it :P Im glad you enjoyed it, look out for more in the future!


how impressive!

I'm usually hardpressed to find a way to use the harpischord, but you've done very well here!

Also the strings you used, and how you used them were quite exceptional!

Then the flute and harpischord ending... immensely moving. Then the drums come in, making it all work.

You have moved me deeply with this piece

5/5 from me, keep them coming.

Love-Hate-War responds:

Heh, the harpsichord is a great instrument, no? I had a bit of trouble at first, I wanted to create something that sounded medieval and epic(harpsichord, flute, etc) and combine it with more modern sounds (Ie - holywood style strings, blues organ, etc), and being primarily a piano player I found the sustain on the harpsichord to be much shorter than I anticipated, lol. Im glad my music has moved you, it's all I ever intended to do, so thanks. I have more in the pipeline, so wtach out for them.


Very nice orchestration. Some of the instruments (harpsichord, organ) sound distorted, which unfortunately takes away from the overall sound of the piece. I'm a little confused as to whether this has any relation to Squall's theme in FFVIII (which is also called "The Oath"), the style is similar but the themes are different; if you were trying to make something in the same style you succeeded!

Love-Hate-War responds:

Sorry, it was mixed in a bit of a rush, I had to submit it as part of an audio portfolio and I was running a bit late, so it may have clipped in places, I think the timpani near the end suffered the worst though. I didn't realise that was the name Squall's song, I thought it was "maybe im a lion"? So sorry for the similarity in name, I do draw alot of inspiration from the music from those games though. Thanks for the great review! :D
