A little short
Not a bad track, but it didn't seem to loop right and with that on top of the fact it was quite short, meant that these factors conspired against my feeling on the overall track. I feel that there is some good potential with the track though and you need to stick with it and tweak a little to make it worthwhile.
The piece sounds good, with the idea of building up before some sort of medieval conflict, taking the lives of many and maiming many more. The whole scenario is one of foreboding and potentially of great loss, which will no doubt play out in later pieces that you submit. I look forward to the great arcing swathes of blood and gore that you communicate during these pieces, with increased pace, gusto and presence.
That was the other place that the piece maybe stumbled slightly - it failed to really impress itself upon me, not quite being there to grab me and say "something's about to happen!", more that this is the forgotten piece of music from a menu, which people end up humming all day, because the stuff on the radio at work is worse... Ah, I see what you did there.
