This is one of the songs i worked harder on in all of my roster here in Newgrounds, i tried to make a song that had Halloween and horror in mind and also made a lot and i mean a LOT of research on panning and orchestration to be able to achieve the sound i wanted and i think it is my most advanced piece of composition so far, at least it was the one that took the most out of me.
I called it march of the damned because listening to it reminds me of an army of skeletons marching towards you.
Review please and thanks!
Got 4th place in Spooktacular :D

Made with:

DivoFST responds:

Thanks man :D

Good day sir. Have my promised review.

The Good:
-Opening's fine.
-Very nice melodies, I particularly like the ostinato that comes in at 0:13.
-Mixing is fairly clean. Not everything shines out completely, but there's no distortion or anything. Also, that bed of sound at 1:31-2:28.

The Not-So-Good:
-I totally recognize those orchestral samples as Edirol. While I'm guilty of using them myself, I have to say - if you can, get some better ones. :<
-Also, I'm with camoshark on this. The drums sound really bland and uninspired. There's no real 'life' to them.
-1:44 is VERY obviously recorded with the midi keyboard, and it shows. The rest of the song is very in-tempo and when you're doing it naturally, it gets out of tempo a lot. I'd highly suggest practicing a lot and preparing a solo already or making sure you KNOW the key signatures you're going to use. Not just know them tentatively, but be able to use them liberally without hesitation.
-Okay, I'm OCD about transitions (including the outro, not quite as much the intro), so I have to say. The transition at 1:28 is pretty crappy. It just stops, then starts up again without a real connection - sounds more like you spliced two different songs which were made in the same style together.
-Outro is equally crappy. No buildup or conclusion at all really, it just ends.

Overall: Considering the transitions and the really-pretty-bad-midi-keyboard-solo, I'm going to have to give this a 7/10 or 3.5/5. It's pretty good, but not the kind of thing I'd want to listen to over and over. :< Considering what I heard of your other song so far though, I have a feeling I'm going to like it a lot. ^_^

DivoFST responds:

So far im stuck with edirol and some free Soundfonts i recently downloaded :S ..
The drums i actually dont hate them that much as you guys but i can see where they are not awesome.
As for the Keyboard improv i agree that much was left out of place, at the time i recorded the song it actually sounded just a bit off, but of course you guys have your ears better trained then mine and now that it has been pointed out i can see the major failures in it. The transitions are still one of my weak spots and i shall read something about them these next few days and try to improve them.
Thanks for the comment buddy! And cant wait to see the other review :D
