Dark Reaper shines brightly!
The theme and melody of this piece are really impressive, felt like it described a dark mysterious person revealing a secret and becoming a hero. Always love piano included in works like this and the wind instrument at 0:11 to 0:40 was epic starting off as the focus and slowly became the support, I was sad to hear it leave.
Great beginning and I liked the transitions that built up the melody, especially the one at 0:22. The percussive transition at 0:41 was nice, but the hats/cymbals from 0:42 to 1:00 was a little overwhelming for me. They stood out to me more than melody and I had trouble focusing on the music as a whole during that period of time. It could just be me though.
Overall, good theme and great melody and percussion may be a bit strong near the end. Keep up the awesome work, I look forward to future songs. 8/10.
Yeah, I plan to tone down the drums a bit (the choice of sounds the kit had was limited in how they varied) And I'll continue it, lengthen it, maybe add new tones.
I can even explain the structure.
That first bit with just the piano and flute is kinda the opening.
Then when the guitar and strings kick in, that's what I call the 'Support Melody'
And the one with the heavy drums is the main.
Also, kudos to you for knowing that 'Kuro Shinigami' translates to 'Dark/Black Reaper' (depends on wether you want to use black or dark. In my case, I use black)
Ironic thing is, he's a really cheery guy, almost a comical character, though he's kinda a male yandere, so to speak. He's got a crazy side. >:D
I'll take your advice for the final song. Thanks for the review.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
