an evil, sinister theme. this track is haunted and also is inexplicably the #1 all-time highest scoring track...enjoy it for what it is and quit hating for what it's not. if you'd like to use this send me a message. thanks for listening.

Well done but...

It is kind of like a loop and their is no climax.it would be better if you added a Big loud noise in the song when no one was expecting it, that would scare people out of their seats and make it more sinister and dark.But well done and make more music.

that's a good idea. thanks for listening


its an amazing song, geez you got some talent

hektikmusic responds:

thanks for listening! glad you liked it :D

Nice balance

Very well done.
I like the simpliness of this track. Not too much going on, which is in this cas a good thing. Because it´s so empty, it gets scary. Nicely done.
I really love the EP/bell thingy melody. It is the base of the whole track and it works great. It is simple and repetitive (with little variations). Both work out fine.

Though I feel like i'm missing something. This could be awesome for some kind of spooky trip in a game or animation, but for a full track it seems unfinished. I'd add an extra part with a big epic orchestral drop. Some wild violins and maybe even a brass section. At least you need big timpanis or other kind of deep, large percussion. If you manage to add the EP also in with his chracteristic melody of this tune, it would be awesome. This would really give an awesome edge to this tune.

Good job,

thanks for a full review and great tips. i will look into this further :D

Mario yep yep

The first bit gave me the same feeling I always got when playing threw Super Mario's ghost stages, like that I couldnt get to the end cause it freaked me out to much.
The beginning was kudos though ^^
