Funny story here.... This is literally the first piece of music I've written. Another one that was co-composed with my buddy Josh, who is on guitar here. This was one of those, "Hey, taikos sound epic. Let's use them!" Then we brought up a horn patch: "Hey, this is a good theme. Let's use this!" (that's almost exactly how it went)

Several guitar solos and one sick modulation later, you have the beginning of our audio endeavors. The idea behind this piece was to create tension using suspensions. We had a ton of fun making this piece a few years ago. Not orchestrated or mixed nearly as well as our other stuff - this was the trial run. Hope you enjoy it!

I also should note that "Ad Victoriam" is Latin for "To Victory" and was used as a war cry by the ancient Romans.


Ah yes! The guitar is phenominal but I will always respect a Celtic feel to any song... and to finish it off it really sounds like an epic battle in Castlevania!! I'm happy to have come across this~ Thanks guys.(Favorites)

Thank you! :) I'll take epic battle in Castlevania any day!

Am I the only one who thought on Fallout because of the title? Really? Ok.

I love classical and you have only made it better. I hope you do more like this

Thanks for the review! We've got some more coming :D

Good piece of music. Very well fits into battlefield (even modern). Easy start, then fight with epic huge army...

Cheers for the review. Happy you like it :)

This is a good track. I do quite enjoy the rock sequence that follows with the classical instruments. It's a good mix and something that I will surely recommend to others.

You have quite a talented friend on the guitar. You have quite an epic piece on display.
