Finally starting to get a grounding in Ableton.

The theme was pride, which I had some struggles with initially. But it was worth it in the end, I think.

Most of this song is the soundtrack for an army marching off to war. But at the end we hear what the battlefield sounds like after the war. Was your pride worth it?

I don't really think this is hip hop, but because of the beat emphasis it's closer to hip hop than any other genre.

I really enjoyed making this one.

Also dig that manual glitching. No db_glitch here ;P

I told KrrMaim that my next song would be a 10/10. Well, this one isn't it. But it's coming. Just you wait.


That was fun to listen to. A lot of new sounds that I haven't heard you use in this.

Thanks bro. When I started this song I had this wild visualization of the song as this giant orchestral piece. However I was just getting into Ableton at the time and I had never written an orchestral piece before. So I kinda approximated the idea I had, which explains all the new stuff.

Thanks for listening as ever. Without vigilant people like you and ArcaneSoul it's really possible that I'd have stopped posting songs up here a long time ago.

The beat is somewhat breakbeat ish imo. 3:07 has a bit too much reverb in it that its clipping alot unless you intended it like that. The mids could be toned down a bit too. But overall, i love this song :)

johnfn responds:

i'm not actually hearing any clipping. i had a limiter on it (what can i say, im a terrible mixer =D) so clipping would be very surprising! could it have been a glitch with the newgrounds player perhaps? i did intend for it to have a massive amount of reverb but i could understand if you didn't like that.

thanks for the review bro!
