This is quite the original song DarkA, has a very unique feel to it, an intense story, bordering on epic. I think I can safely say I have not heard anything quite like it to date.
You've got quite a few instruments going on here, and they're all quite well chosen. You make them play in quite a unique style.
This is where the song was lacking DarkA, there was some serious overpowering instruments here. When the choir kicks in, everything else is overpowered.
I can really sense you put some real effort into this piece, I think it may one of you better ones (and I've heard quite a few from you ^^).
The melody was sweet, and easily one can flow into it, and exist in its atmosphere for extended periods of time.
Overall impression on me:
Like I stated before you have some interesting choicing of instrumentation, and they seem to work quite well.
I would check out that piano, towards the middle and end where it begins to play that other riff really fast, I can hear some sour chords, which threw me off balance.
For sure, those choirs should be looked at, they sing an interesting melody, but they are overpowering. Lower their volumes.
I really like the percussional work, its simple, yet effective. Then again, you do seem to be pretty damn good with percussional stuff as of late, so I can see why ^^.
The ending was a bit too abrupt, perhaps end it with a crash or with one final riff with the piano? There should be something there.
Great stuff DJDarkAngel, thank you for joining the contest and giving us this piece!
