wanna use this track in your project?
The project that this was composed for is probably not going to be released, so its kind of sad right now. :(

PLEASE take in mind that even tho I love this kind of music, I don't have much experience with the field.

I should also add that the percussion you are hearing was put together manualy, no complete loops, cuz that would be too damn easy. :)

nice drums

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I feel like the drums could have been the true leader for this music. It would have worked to make them a bit louder in my opinion, or at least work them to sound more bold.

But, as it stands, it works out well. There is a good enough melody to keep for a game in a neutral state. Something like walking around with no enemies on the field, or going toward an important place like a castle.

Good job!

-When I was making this, I had a great inspiration for infinite percussion variations, however I had to restrain myself, because I was afraid that I would go too far from the original path.

thank you for your review.

Sounds like it certainly has potential Deshiel. I'd probably give the strings a little more space to soar. There seems to be a bit too much high end on the hihats.
This is a nice mix of symph and tech, I'll give you that.
I think with some more practice, this can be a great tune.

DESHIEL responds:

I'll be more creative in future compositions of this kind. :)

Excellent work! I found that the chord progression you used really added a dynamic and dramatic feel to the song. The lead instrument which sounds like a celli playing higher notes amplified the determined mood of this track. I'm glad you put this in cinematic because I can really see this being used in a game. I hope the guys you made this for use this track in 'Fall of Arzo'

The only reason you got .5 deducted was because the instruments were synthy and not realistic, but that isn't a huge deal for me like it is for other people. I'm just glad you're submitting something great like this to the portal.

4.5 stars and a 5 vote from me.

DESHIEL responds:

-The lead is actualy merged from one soundfont and two sytrus vsts :)
-The guy in charge of The Fall of Arzo was very pleased with the piece so it's going to be there. :)
- Yeah I was already "warned" about some pureblood rants around this kind of music.

Ofcourse, synthetics cannot replace the real sound (atleast mine do not xd) but I've spent a great deal of tweaking these synthetics to atleast sound well. Because had you hear them in thier unmastered state you would probably decide to kill me for the sake of humanity.

Well that is the price to pay now that I don't have money to buy equipment and I'm very thankfull for every free 'gift' that I happen to obtain from the other artists.

So while I do understand some people's concern about the quality, I cannot and will be not held back by some ruckuss about the impurity of the sound.
After all, sound is just an instrument, it's the composition and the idea that matters.

So ty for yo review man. ;)

it feels like drums are alive =) and also the symphony melody is great
