FIRST OFF: The title is in Latin. It is pronounced "ah-MEE-kos koom oom-BRYE" (it is classical Latin, not clerical/church), and it means "Friends with Shadows"

Update: thanks to NG now allowing the replacement of files, you guys get the remastered version! Look for others!

Anyway, I started this piece yesterday, and was proud of the way it was turning out. I finished the latter half of the song today, and better modified the drop (to my liking, that is).

I am pleased with the result. Remember... We can all be friends with shadows.


Song's good, I quite enjoyed it. It came across as pretty professional!

Too bad for the title though. The preposition "cum" comes in default with an ablative. This means you would have to say 'umbris' if you meant 'shadows' and 'umbra' if you meant shadow. Also, the plural nominative of 'amicus', is 'amici'. The version you used is the accusative. Which would be weird, because we're supposed to be friends with shadows, which would make it the predicative nominal, and therefore it would get the first case. Amici cum umbris.

My Latin is definitely not very good. What if it were saying it as in "I HAVE friends with shadows"? Would that make the use of 'amicos' more acceptable?

Thanks again.

Love the way the high tones dance with the bass. Bravo, sir.

Never wanted to dance with nobody but you.

In my opinion, your best song is Bells of Memory. I haven't checked your page in a while but i haven't found any songs i like the way I liked that one. Please try to be more original, your drops sound... their not good enough. No offence but they sound like everyone else's drops. When i heard Bells of Memory, i knew i never heard anything like it before. But this, i can't say the same if i was paid. I'm not saying it's bad, but i feel like it lacks originality. I've heard some creative drops that surprised me before. And not just the pattern, the sound. I expect the same from you too.

Hmmm... I can understand your point of view. I felt the drop just matched the overall feel of this piece, so I made it to my liking.

If you want something that is quite different, I would recommend checking out my song EtherKraft; I think it has the originality you are hoping for. The drop is nothing like what you hear in the mainstream these days.

I love this song I will listen to this while I kill people in games. I will like this song forever and ever and... You get it. I really like the song. Nuff said

Glad you like it, but I'm worried your bloodlust and its association with this piece will extend beyond the virtual realm XD
