This song just sounds as if I'm there just watching action happen
The Samurai gracefully gets of his steed and prepares to face the army that charges towards him
He Proceeds to swiftly and calmly dispatch all enemies that stood against him
There is no one left Just him, and there is me watching this happen
Beautiful song dude really has power to it
Keep making em' and I'll keep listening

Hello Neon-Bard! (hahaha)

Well this piece definitely invokes its name very well, it has that fast-paced action feel I would imagine if the main character from Shank was replaced with a ninja (wait, didn't they do a game like that? ^^).
I think the kick drum during the intro sounds a bit odd because of the reverb used on it (or the sample is recorded in stereo and with room echo) but later on it blends in really well. Reminds me of the issues I faced with Native Instrument's "Battery" until I discovered the joys of Studio Drummer.
Anyway, good track with a very cool video-game vibe that picks up and develops well while maintaining the initial vibe throughout. Good job.

Neon-Bard responds:

Thanks for listening MetalRenard! :)

I actually considered removing the extra beat that I used throughout the song because of that odd sounding intro, but in the end I just left it in. Again, thank you very much!

Not my favorite, not flavor, no feel!

Neon-Bard responds:

My music is certainly not for everybody. Thanks for being honest all the same though.
