The minimalism really carries over.
I wouldn't call it techno, really. But I'm not sure what I would really call it. Almost.. Ambient? Heh, almost. There's really not much for me to say here.. It all sounds pretty cool. The effects were a nice touch.. But it all feels pretty plain. A little underdone, if you understand what I mean. Took far, far too long for some percussion to come in. But the choir there is brilliant. Sounds awesome. The last minute or so of the song is by far the best part.. But even then it feels like it's on the brink of busting out, but it never quite makes it.. That saw-ish pluck is pretty awesome, by the by.
What it really feels like though, is that it could have been great, but the amount of time you spent building it, fading back out, really killed off the momentum. The bomb siren was bloody brilliant. But in the chaos thereafter, like bombs striking the earth, should have been some booming percussion, some powerful bass, and a chaotic, distorted synthline just to usher in the impending doom that the piece seems to convey.
I prefer it more when heralds actually herald something, if you know what I mean. Regardless, it's solid. It's just not spectacular. Good job nonetheless. 7/10, 4/5. Keep it up, and thanks for your criticism on -=Gallows=-! :D
