Remember the old Bound By Fate? Yeah it got better.

Back in April of last year, I got a PM from a friend of mine on Tumblr who goes by the name ZomzArtisticz. She asked me if she could play with Bound By Fate lyrically, and I gladly accepted.

After she released her vocals over the track, it got harder and harder for me to hear the track without them, so I asked her to send me the a capella of the track, so that I could integrate it into the remaster of the original.

Changes in the track include:
Better mixing and mastering.
New drum samples
A much better piano
And the vocals, of course.

Forever you and me, to live eternity. Bound by Fate, to live eternity. Forever you and me, forever you and me. (x2)
We'll see it all, this life so cryptic and when we fall, apocalyptic. No survivors you will see, it'll be just you and me.
To live eternity, forever you and me, to live eternity. Bound by Fate.

Forever you and me, to live eternity.

(Repeat Verse)

Bound by Fate, to live eternity. Forever you and me.

(Repeat Chorus) x2

(Repeat Verse)

Bound by Fate, to live eternity, forever you and me. x2

(Repeat Verse)

Bound by Fate to live eternity, forever you and me, forever you and me.

Thanks man! Appreciating the love on the older tracks, this one being my personal favorite.

This is very good. I can really tell the mixing and mastering has improved a lot, and the vocals definitely add a lot to the piece as well. What plug-in did you use for the piano, btw? The piano in the original almost sounded out-of-tune at times, so I'm glad you replaced it. The structure and transitions are very well-done. All the structural twists and turns really make this piece feel cinematic in a way. The mood is the perfect mixture of energetic and atmospheric. The only thing I feel the need to point out in the negative for this piece is that the texture feels a little too thick for me around 5:58 and at other places (although this might just be because I'm not used to hearing it with vocals). Overall, this is one of my favorite pieces of yours, so I'm really glad you remastered it. Also, may I ask what the lyrics are, please? Anyway, I hope I'll hear from you again sooner rather than later. Btw, I can't describe how awesome it made me feel when you linked my channel to the text "You should go listen to this dude." I'm honored. Thanks Matt! ;D Talk to you soon. ^^

Dylnmatrix responds:

Thanks man. Yeah, I'd have to say that it's you getting acclimated to the vocals. It was also hard to mix those in, so I might have messed up somewhere in that regard.

Also, lyrics have been added to the author comments :3

Edit: Oh yeah I forgot to tell you what I used for my piano. It was the Nexus Grandpiano, from none other than Nexus.
