This battle theme is an arrangement of a piano and violin piece of the same name, and THAT was an arrangement of a music box piece I did of the same name. Basically, this song has been through 2 iterations before becoming a battle theme. I'd upload the other 2 but meh.

Just what I've been looking for. :D Battle theme that hits off quickly but has the slight dark tone throughout. While I don't need it I only wished it looped, so I could keep jamming to it in my room.

Good stuff.

Right off the bat, this sounds like something I'd hear in Kingdom Hearts, especially from KHII onwards. I love the general feel of this piece: my heart began to pound hearing this!

My only pickle (and it's a minor pickle) is that the lead piano coming not too far off from the intro stands out quite a lot (in that it's too loud coming in) and feels like there's been no dynamic progression. But when the backing strings came in, that was resolved quite quickly. Again, just a minor hiccup.

Also, what's with the abrupt ending? Try exploring any option for you to make a seamless loop; it looped quite well when you repeated it.

4.5/5 (5 in practice!). Really hooked me into listening, and now you've also got me curious to listen to the other two iterations too.

Thanks for the review, Trois! The piece ends abruptly because I composed it with RPG Maker in mind, so I have an .OGG version that I manually looped within Audacity by referencing audio samples in the metadata, so that version loops fine. In this MP3 version the ending trails off to make looping easier.
