The downfall of a great city has begun, but what lies in the future ahead?

This particular piece was heavily inspired by the amazing artwork of Kamikaye (Megaplex Tree, link down below), and was made specifically for Realfaction's Art-Inspired Music (AIM) contest.

As the artwork tells a story of its own, I tried to convey a similar message in the music as well. Of course, what that story is all about, is up to you!

Interesting stuff:
Software used: Reaper 4
Tempo in bpm: 100-120
Time signature: 4/4
Key signatures: Variants of A minor, D minor

Megaplex Tree (by Kamikaye): http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/kamikaye/megaplex-tree

Feedback and general comments are always welcome :)

Note: there's quite a few different themes in this piece, so it might be worth listening to it 2-3 times to get 'used' to them.

I do have to agree that with the comment saying the guitar riffs are awesome. There are a few elements that I miss in this. I think this song could have been a bit more intense than it is now. For this further on interesting and almost fascinating piece I'd give a solid 8,7 out of 10. The style is good, but I kind of miss something.

Also, have you seen that amazing movie Der Untergang (Downfall)?

EagleGuard responds:

Thanks for your review! Glad you liked the piece overall, and I'll try to take your feedback into account in the future.

And yeah, I have seen that move, actually. Great film indeed!
