"Let me not then die ingloriously and without a struggle, but let me first do some great thing that shall be told among men hereafter."
--Homer, The Iliad

At this point in the journey, the hero approaches his final destination. His men are rowing towards the shore with all their might. A tempest brews above as the sea crashes into the cliff rock. The gods are restless, but the spirit of man is even more so. This is it; the hero's ultimate test to defy the gods and achieve immorality. The odds are against him, but nothing can pacify his determination.

In the description, I believe you mean he achieves immortality, not immorality. Two very different things :P Also, great track. The combo of the choir and strings (I think?) makes for an epic sounding duo, and it has a nice buildup.

This song is great it has a amazing build up to something that is epic. As all the parts add up it becomes more complete.
