The Fallen... will rise again.

Another practice composition for trailer film scoring type music.

Pure Epic

This is what what I was looking for from indie :) it is familiar to big music companies like Two Steps From Hell ;) Adding to favs :) hope to listen more like this :)

you just have to pause and listen

In the beginning I feel like I'm tip-toing in on a secret scape. The best way for me to describe what I receive from this piece is to describe to you what I see when I hear it; I'm no master with words when it comes to music pieces but this is what I think:

When the violins start up I'm entering the bottom area of a ravine where blood and feathers are scattered across the cold grey rocks. Nothing movies. It even seems as though nothing breathes. I feel almost like I shouldn't be here, that it's some sort of sacred ground that I'm trespassing on. Then something shifts as more is added to the music and from the middle of that mess of The Fallen rises a figure with scars on his back and some extra appendages - the torn vestiges of wings - limp behind him. He's dirt-streaked and hair falls over his face. His brow is creased in a vengeful scowl and as I keep drawing closer he looks up at the sky and clenches his fist. Behind him the broken wings flex. That's about 1/3 of the way through the music score.

That said, I think the shift at 00:59 could be moved earlier in the piece. It drags out for a little too long. I like the gentle crescendo and the rapid move back to violins at the end is a good resolution for the piece. I'd love to see someone put an animation or trailer to this.


This is the best song I have ever heard, the beginning gives me chills, how can it garner less than a 10??

Okay so it gets really loud and mishmashy in the middle, it could really have done with less noise in the middle. The strength is easily the beginning. But honestly, remix this and rewrite it starting from the intro violins. I know you can top even this, bro.

No he shalt not

This shit be off the cheeze. I dun lik da cheez but it suffixes nuff' bro. Dun let deez fulz tell you odawise.
