Support my music by buying the album Cuintha:

I was watching Joe Hisaishi the other day perform a piece, and I thought.. I love orchestra music a lot and he makes some great spirited tracks and he has a ton of them, so I decided I wanted to make a spirited uplifting orchestral piece as well.

Another inspiration for this track came after seeing the movie Sherlock Holmes A game of shadow, where Hans Zimmer used the Harpsichord a lot and I thought he did a great job with it.

This piece paints a picture of my imaginative city called ''Adventua'', one of the largest cities you'll ever find, the structures of the buildings are very artsy and the people of the city are all creative and noone is forced into jobs against their will just to make a living. People here are free spirited artists and life lovers that can be themselves.

Man, the feeling that your music gives me ... I d-don't know!
It's as if I were running, dancing!
Was a forest, a fortress, the ruins of a city. Reminds me of the Mayans, Incas and Aztecs, but at the same time a steam-punk city full of life!
And all so beautiful and the sun shines intensely!
The color of your music is green, I feel it!
Incredible ... I don't know how to translate what I felt, but it is amazing!
Really, good job!

That is a fine review if I may say so myself, I def intended for the sun to shine and green to be one of the main colors of this painting :D Glad you enjoyed it!

Wassup, brother?
This is up. Uplifting as fuck. I like how you just march in to whatever genre you like and pwn it.

That's cool as hell.

Dig the song and spanker0n's story. haha.

DanJohansen responds:

hahah thanks a lot brother, I've been composing a lot of orchestral music the recent years. I'm very influenced by RPG music in general. Glad you dig it man! ORCHESTRAL ON! lol

The city you describe sounds like a hipster paradise lol. I bet they all wear v neck t-shirts and listen to completely obscure bands on vinyl only. But how would a city full of people listen to bands no one has ever heard of? All of the hipsters would try to out "vintage" each other. Slowly, all of the hipsters who felt their vintage level was the same would start grouping up and forming vintage gangs, these gangs would slowly grow, dividing the city of Adventua in half. Not the typical "north vs south" division though. No, these are hipsters! They would do something you have totally never heard of before, like dividing the city diagonally or something, just to prove how hipster they are. Thus begins The Great Hipster War of *insert year here*. Now, all of us metal heads would then see a golden opportunity in this situation. We could wipe the hipster menace from the face of the earth with two strategically placed thermometal...urlar... devices.... I don't know I was trying to fit something metal in. We will call these two bombs... "Priest and Maiden", because come on, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden are metal as fuck. Rap wants in on the action too, so they jump in with their Tec-9s and Glock 10s, all firing goofy and shit just like the bunch of knuckle draggers they are. They don't realize though, the radiation from a thermometalular device is 100 billion times worse than regular nuclear devices. They are all melted within minutes. Country is like "well shit I want some too" but they are all too drunk to get off of their porch swings, so they just fire their shit off in the air and hollar a bunch of unintelligent nonsense about how "DER TOORK ER JOORBS". This is okay though, because Metal needs a drinking buddy, and Country is pretty damn good at drinking... and they like guns, so we have no quarrel with them. Now Pop. Poor Pop. They see Adventua completely destroyed, so they ban together to raise money to help survivors get back on their feet. Only there are NO survivors, so the money just goes to fueling their constant demand for mainstream, sample heavy music. We bomb them with a newly developed, much higher yield "Dio" bomb, and they are vaporized. All that are left is a bunch of places that don't really step on Metal's toes that often, so all is now right with the world. This was way longer than I ever intended it to be... but I saw a golden opportunity and I took it hahaha. Awesome shit as usual. It reminds me of video game music a lot. Like something out of an old school RPG on SNES or something. Brilliant.

DanJohansen responds:

hahahaahha man, you wrote one hell of a Hipster story.. I thought the part of the Dio bomb was hilarious.

And yeah, I make kind of video gamish tracks, and I am a huge fan of old school RPG's.. man, can't hide anything from you! :D
