I used the following software:
- Cinematic Strings 2
- Evolve
- The Giant
- Cubase 7
- Vintage Organs

I've taken the first three comments advice in action and altered the song. There is just some structure change. Enjoy

In my opinion, I think your choices of tone and instruments create a very soothing atmosphere. The only thing I worry about is the overall structure. I understand where you're heading with the build up, but I was disappointed to find that there was no direct climax that awoke the "man this is epic" kind of feeling.

I would like to hear something more dynamic and nuanced. As DuttonsaysHi said, you could write a chorus and give the listener more of a red thread to follow. Sadly, the static ways of the song structure traps mentioned thread in a dark tunnel; All that the listener will see is thread and the inevitable and predictable end. Tear the tunnel apart and vary the path of the thread so that one can feel and see more of the environment around them, instead of limiting the songs potential by not variegating the musical structure.

Think of this till next time, and I'm sure the song will be more interesting!

However I do think you did well in the instrumental sonority of this song. It blends together very nice.
Tell me if you make something new!

Take care.

Hello Hypno :)
Thanks for taking time to review. As with DuttonsaysHi, I will keep the structure build in mind. Thanks! Wow, you mean deep stuff! I will not keep the listener in a dark tunnel. Unless I tend to! Which im not. thanks for tips :D Cheers!

Now this is really epic! composition, production and mastering all flawless!

There's a really great sense of tension in this with the ever building progression and slow build up. I especially like the segment around the 1 minute mark with the guitar and horn having a slow moment before returning to the build up.

Though the build up is great, I feel it takes up too much of the song.It's like 75% of the song is and intro an it gets to a point where I'm thinking "where's the climax? the chorus?".

However that really pays off at the 4.16 mark! :D I really love percussive vocals like that! That whole part was definitely sweet spot of the song and really made it work the wait. Though I shouldn't really have to feel like I'm waiting when I'm listening to something as epic as this. If that segment had come in just a little earlier it would have been perfect! but that's my opinion.

I mean there's nothing wrong here It's just a small issue with structure really, just something to take in consideration for future purposes :).

Still amazing work!

Well, hello to you too Dutton :)
I totally agree with your critiques, I see most of the commentors do. Thanks for enjoying it! I will strongly consider the advices you give me. Not if I edit this one, I will defenetly use them in the next projects. No one keeps the epic in the corner! Thanks again, see ya later, Cheers!

Just, wow!

You managed to take me right in with that intro! Phenomenal. It was just really slow and very calm and built up perfectly. Maybe a tad too long? I guess that's a matter of personal taste.

All the instruments seem to be brought in seamlessly and very slowly, which amplifies the epicness effect on the listener.

One thing I'm really disappointed about is that what seems to be the chorus of the song only comes at the end and really doesn't stay long. I'm not saying it should be longer, but maybe come in quicker? I wasn't expecting the intro to take so long.

Sadly there isn't much to say aside from that, the intro itself takes a big chunk of the song. I could describe how the song flows but doesn't really add anything to the review.

Those drums were epic too! Did they come from Evolve? Great music man, great music!
Can't wait to see what you've got cooking next. Keep it up!

Warhector responds:

lemon42, thanks man :D
There is nothing much to learn other than make the music, I guess. Thanks for reviewing. The epic drums is not entirely from Evolve. Only the bass drum. It may be possible to add a first "chorus" before the last build up? Intercept in 02:49 maybe... and shorten the intro a bit. I think I shouldn't edit to much tho.
