So Lady Arsenic released a song today which can be found here.

I've always loved this song, it's just a gorgeous melody, a pretty haunting lyrics. Just the way I like it.

Anyway I spent a few hours today adding a few layers of my own. Some woodwinds, some strings, and just a tad bit of choirs.

I can spend days, maybe weeks on this piece but sadly I don't have much more time so I wanted to both spread awareness of this song and do my own little thing on the side.

Lyrics (copied from original song)
Mile by mile and day by day,
The Lonely Bard goes on.
Through the wind and rain he makes his way
And sings his mournful song

To every village high and low
He went to sing his tale of woe.
He never had a place to call home
And wandered through the hills all alone

From verdant spring to bleak chilly fall,
He followed naught but his muse's call.
No shelter had he from the bitter cold
And perished in Winter's icy hold.

I see him in my dreams and hear his cry,
Another sleepless night goes by.
His tune, it haunts my every waking hour!
No solace can I find from his power

Long ago and far away
Upon a frozen moor,
He lost his life one tragic day
And haunts me evermore


Reminds me of many an games i played in my childhood one was called "hype the timequest" it has an similar melody like the flote and the part she startrs singing the intro is pretty much the same as in knights and merchants an strategie game and the chorus part remembers me on risen

MaestroRage responds:

man, those are all pretty awesome games (I know Risen myself but never heard of the other two). I'll have to check them out if they share similar styled songs anywhere in them.

Thanks for the review! Glad you enjoyed the track ^______^

The intro, it reminds me of the good old final fantasy days, back when you were always chasing after 4 stupid crystals. I don't know but this song just gives me that vibe that I can't shake. As if I've heard it and its merely just a story that I've though of.

A lone wanderer, known to many but forgotten by all. All know his deeds yet none can name him. Kings boast how he helped their kingdoms yet none knew his name. Credited for many deeds he his many have tried to name him but all have failed. All they know is that he was blinded, although how or why is unclear. None know either why he helped everyone, why he saw good even in the worst foes. The best scholars never could say who he was or why he helped but local folk tale does.

Many ages ago around the time of the tribe of Kadum there was report of a man in tattered clothes. Who came to them in there time of need. They could never see his face but they knew who he was. They gave him many names some forgotten some known. Everyone called him Modan, Messiah of the gods.

<Story over> Yeah nice song.

MaestroRage responds:

Thank you for sharing your story Steve :). Modan sounds like a pretty classy cat. Thanks again for the review, i'm glad you enjoyed the track.

This is extremely relaxing. I have to have listened to this about 6 times in a row. You get 5 stars and a pat on the back for an amazing piece.

MaestroRage responds:

thanks! And again for the review, glad you enjoyed the track.

Holy god, I was not expecting this, but I'm glad I was blown away. This is an amazing song, and her voice is in fact very entrancing. I will have to listen to this much more often, and very frequently. Wonderful job, I will give you 5 very deserved stars.

This sounds like something I would expect to see in the opening of a fantasy type movie, and I would end up buying the soundtrack just for the opening. Well, this goes onto my mobile music storage device.

Thank you very much.

MaestroRage responds:

You're welcome! Thank you for the review and the ratings =^_____^=! We're glad you enjoyed the track.

Voice like an Angel... nice
