What I get from this: A heavy dark infantry raging war into a medieval settlement and approach the castle doors. On the other side there's a brief cinematic that shows the defending army ready for attack (0:20) Then (0:54) the cinematic pans to the underground Dwarven hold of the Castle where they are creating and transporting equipment to the barracks and equipping more men to fight. At 1:26 it shows the archers getting ready on the castle walls, while obscured by the walls. Then (1:43) it shows the dark army once again charging in slow motion until the footage gradually speeds up and they completely mutilate the gate. By 2:00 the gate is destroy and they charge forward into the enemy's castle. Shots from the archers are fired then you see warriors of both side baring their teeth as they charge towards each-other. Then a witch on the dark side smiles while the camera gets an aerial view of the rest of the war.

NEEDLESS TO SAY BUT THIS IS FREAKIN' EPIC. Every song of yours is amazing Mattashi - so amazing I couldn't think upon any way for you to improve except for looping all of your songs so I don't have to do it manually each time they end. Followed :)

Mattashi responds:

You can always download the song and put your media player on loop :P
I really love your imagination btw! xD

Wow this blew me away! it goes well with the art wonderful work and the mix sounds great too :)

I've used a part of this music as well:
Acting-for-The-Experiment-OCT-3926870 78

Your musics are really inspiring!

Mattashi responds:

Thanks man! I'm glad I'm able to give you some inspiration! :D

Reminds me of an epic battle from Naruto Shippuden, makes me think of that music (back in the earlier days of the show). Anywho, not much to say here you did a great job :) it's amazing with the dynamics and atmosphere it makes me think of a huge war going on so it definately fits the artwork! Fantastic job here with this composition! :)

Sound: No particular mixing issues, very clean for an orchestral style song.

Composition: Excellent song structure and nice transitions between your section. Also your composition does a good job at keeping the song from being repetitive. I particularly enjoy your use of percussives.

Fit to Art: This song certainly fits the art paired with it very well. Very epic, very battle themed, and overall conveys the image very well.

Originality: As great as this piece is, it's not particularly original at all. Standard take on the image and also not particularly novel for its genre. Almost slightly generic too.
