The intro drags on a little more than what I am used to hearing from you and your older work, but the essential build-up is relative to what comes at 1:10 and onward so it seems. With the blast at 1:28, really got me hooked and lets just say that the utilization of layers here is impressive as FUCK! I know you didn't care for this piece, but you should Nut-Punch yourself, because frankly ~ they flow nicely together!
Moving on ~ The drop at 2:30 was nice, as well as the bass kicks...made my Cat look up, and you should know by now...if my cat looks up, its gooooood! I feel some Sonic 2 in there BIG time starting at 2:51! VERY nice touch bro! A good way to always captivate your listeners is to utilize change-ups (Which you have been doing for YEARS!) and even throw in some tidbits of classic games from the what...80s and 90s? HA!
The drop at 4:20 and fadeout made me wonder exactly what the fuck you were thinking...as that kinda "Burned" my bridge, but the silent pickup made me shut my fingers down from taking half a star.
To be honest, if you do the Ninja Gaiden project that you have in the works similar to this piece...I can see it being front paged! You have quite the following, and a "silent fanbase" that would probably go ape shit crazy over such a piece :P But then again...I'm just that One guy ;-)
As always, Great
I love the feel this song has. Especially in the game. It fits perfectly. Both the game and song are great. And glad I still get to hear all the songs "In progress." :)
Oh hellz yes!
Sooooo good, perfect blend of sounds giving some serious bass, makes you want to just move it XD. Keep up the amazing work!
Your complexity is improving
I have Melodica, Ominous Intrigue, and both versions of Into The Unknown kicking around my iPod. Hopefully that gives me some perspective on how your musical composition skills have improved.
Your melodies are strong. Always have been. They groove, the move, they make me want to dance.
Now, where I see the most difference is in the musical elements weaving in and around the melody, supporting and countering, which is fucking kickass.
I'll admit, the opening is a little long for my normal tastes. Listener loyalty convinced me to stick with this song though.
I'm checking out Ice Aliens now.
Heh... Thanks dude.
It's cool to see people that have heard my older pieces come back and check out my newer stuff. I try to learn from my past mistakes and take in everything I can when it comes to writing music. So I'm always trying to improve, and hearing someone say that I actually have is quite nice.
Yeah, the opening was extended a fucking TON to increase buildup and tension within the game it was written for.
Thanks for coming back and checking my stuff, man! <3 :D
Stellar work as always
Song title is a tad obscure though ;)
Play the game that it's in. You'll understand.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
