What did you do when you were 14 years old? I was busy playing with my siblings at that age.

Aitazaz Hassan Bangash, a 14 years old 9th grade in Pakistan, sacrificed his life to save his school of over 2000 students from a suicide bomber. This happened yesterday.

This song is dedicated to the true hero and martyr. I don't throw the words hero, brave, or martyr out freely, but this teenager deserves them more than anyone.



I had tried to use Pakistani traditional music. However I could not interpret it my way. So I went for something more cinematic. In fact it sounds almost like Celtic music.

Review if you choose so. Thank you


Thank you for recognizing the young hero with your music.

I wonder if the suicide bomber was only doing what he thought was good and right.

Ditto @MetalRenard. I can't give you the review due to the noble cause behind it. I am still having the flashes of the face of this braveheart (salute you Aitizaz) in my mind who didn't even know that that was the last day of his life and so didn't have the chance to say farewell to his parents and family. It might be a usual day for all of them. RIP boy and thanks Elitistinen for sharing the link and the tribute.

I can't rate the track considering what it's for, I hope you don't mind. The story hit me quite hard, emotionally too, so thanks for sharing it.

If you want constructive feedback on the music, I would say it has quite a lot of reverb and would shine if you use EQ a bit more instead of relying on reverb. Lots of people go that direction though - early on they rely on reverb then as their experience grows they find alternatives that sound more "pro", so you're on the right track. Keep it up.

I'm sorry for the late response.

Thank you for the review a lot sir. :) Very helpful inputs, thanks again.

I think a story like that deserves a review. I appreciate what you’ve attempted to do here as to remember someone for such an act through artistic means is a noble thing to do.
I would have approached this to be more of a lament, but this is fine.
This piece doesn’t move me, but what it does is get me to think about the boy from Pakistan.
Not sure if that is intentional for the music to seem a bit distant, or if this was merely a reflection to the story in a subconscious kind of way. Remembering a carefree/safe childhood in one’s own life brings a sense of disbelief in the reality that is for other children in the world. And so perhaps the music is a reflection of the cold and distant perspective as for one can only feign to write what it means to live in that reality vicariously.

:) I don't think my piece even deserve a 4.5. I have failed to interpret the actual emotion of the story. I have considered to revise this piece.

Excellent review. Thank you for the extremely helpful inputs. Thank you.

This ain't celtic one bit. It's genre sounds nearly identical to the soundtrack from Elder scrolls Oblivion.

Coincidence in music always happens. Fortunately, I never played Oblivion. Probably I got inspiration from some of John Williams greatest pieces.
