Terror From The Deep

Author Comments

Humanity always was curious and we always wandered and explored wherever we went, nowadays we want to venture out in space, even though we don't know what lurks under the seas. Beware the oceans.

Inspired by both the Cthulhu Mythos refering to the Deep Old Ones, imagined by Lovecraft's dreams. And also it shares the same name of the "not so famous" XCOM: Terror From The Deep game, from which i found the image among google pictures in another word based search.

This is actually a remake of an old unfinished track, that didn't sound really like the finished V6.0 version that this is. I had to cut, add, remove, and rethink a couple things along the way. But still, i enjoyed revisiting that track and finally releasing it for the first time ever, tonight!

Reminds me of some kinda Stealth-Game (Splinter Cell, Hitman) melody.

- Background percussion (great loop)
- I like the lead that is at 02:16 (this arp synth)
- I like all intruments
- mixing is very good
- atmosphere fits very good for that "Terror From The Deep" theme

Things you can, in my opinion, improve on this song:
- hard transition at 02:19 and
- a bit repititive between 2:00 and 2:19 and you can hear that you copied that loop, that replays a bit later
Tipp: add sometimes a Pad which sounds interesting (only one long note) or vary that loop by adding a second voice to play chords together (2 notes)
- percussion also a bit repititive
- a final for your song is missing, but you are trying to get a ending by repeating the last few notes, but there is something missing like a Drum hit at the end.
- ending note is missing (simply take the first note of that repeating loop at the end and play it at the end, make it a bit longer maybe)
- let some space between the end of the song and the end of the file lenght, so that the dynamics like the hall can decay

All in all a great song, but you can improve it at some places
