Quite the song style you got going here. An intense story is being told, but I don't know if Redemption Lost is a fitting title, this for me, is a piece bordering with battle/vigour music.

You've got a load of instruments, and a load of different riff's, which makes this song really nice to listen to.

This is where you lost some points GrumbleDuke. The very first flute riff seems a little odd to me, theres just this one note in there, that threw me off.

After the flutes, you throw in too many instruments in too fast, and it becomes a bit muddled. I was able to adjust to them off course, but when you have so many new melodies just jumping at you, it becomes a bit hard to keep up.

Any battle song takes a load of effort in my opinion. And this is some pretty fine battle music, and I can hear the effort with so many different riff's and melodies.

This was your strongest point, because you have a lot of neat melodies going on, and they all sing for a common cause, one united voice that really shines out.

Overall impression on me:
I would like to hear some more percussional work Grumble. A piece like this DEMANDS you have some form of crazy snare roll, and those timpini's were not nearly loud enough. I realize of course, that making the timpini loud may very well have sacrificed clarity, so I will not hold that against you.

The transitions here were pretty damn fine. The background instruments were also just damn cool. They were perfect volume, just hanging in the back, yet giving their own to the song as well.

I really think this song needs more crashes you know, during transitions and in the middle of intense brass riffs.

I realize all these suggestions would make this a purely energetic battle song, and I think you were trying to go with a different story, but heh, this is what I am getting from it ^^.

When the flutes and those strings make a little solo stand, that was my favourite. Awesomeness.

Great stuff GrumbleDuke. THank you for joining the contest and giving us this piece!

Talk about extensive...a lot of time has been spent considering this, and the same for everyone else too. I'll explain "Redemption Lost", seeing as there is no real space in the info bar. Imagine a statement along these lines:

"Your time has come daemon, the light is closed to you now. You shall fall by my hand!". Paladin and evil being then fight.

I know hindesight is wonderful etc, but it really bugged me about the flutes in the beginning, especially the piccolo, but nowt I can do with that now. Once again your wisdom rings true; the timpanis could not be made louder or they became overpowering, the same with the harp later on. I had a feeling you would like the flute transition (that's it milk him for all he's got ;) ).

wut the shit

this song, isnt that good at ALL
what kind of a judge are u giving him a ninety-one?
this is shit.
the flutes, their part sucks and it duznt fit. its intro part is incredibly dissonant and duznt sound like it was on purpose. no apparent main melody/theme.
trumpets are boring, as is everything else
ending was SO cliche
but atleast it was a nice chord
all in all, if i was a judge (WHICH IM NOT!!!)
i would give this a fifty-five
sry dude

NGAudioArtists responds:

Well, erm, thank you for your constructive criticism. Have a nice day!

good chord progression some sour, weak percussion,

the chords and rythyms have good progression but hit a couple of sour notes a few times. I'm not sure if these are flaws in the song or if they are intended

but once the song picks up even though there are still sour notes it is still very good.

also the main theme is very loud and the percussion is very hard to hear or often times inaudible leaving large gaps in the mesh of the song.


this is great. at first it sounds kind of like Zelda on weed. then adopts more of a FF9 feel. it's a little long imo though. <3
