I'm a bit disappointed that I lacked the time to make this longer, as all sorts of matters kept getting in the way of writing. Still, I'm somewhat happy with the result.

The song is inspired by the following art piece:

by Ravish261

Fantastic artwork. Very visually stimulating and cathartic.

The theme behind the song is that of an elite of warriors and watchmen (as visually represented in the artwork) united under The Nightingale Order.

Their motifs are a mystery, their methods are unorthodox and sightings are rare, but for the most part their intentions seem noble.

The percussion took me on a ride while the melody gave me an eargasm. That drum arrangement is really compelling, and the strings sound amazing, with great melody. And the undercurrents and bass sound perfect. Well done.

Thank you very much!
Sorry for not replying at the time. I had periods when I was not in the right mindset to keep up.

What a sick piece, love it with all my heart. Yes it does have some Two step from Hell elements. I am working on a piece and I was kinda stuck at a point and I admit this has opened a door of creativity in me. Very well done Alex! Yes I wish it was a little longer.

LunyAlex responds:

Sorry for the extremely late response, hah, a lot has been happening.

Thank you very very much for your kind words and input. I'm very glad you liked it and that bit about opening a creative door made me glow with happiness, hah.

Again, thanks a lot!

This is a really awesome piece! I think that the melody and the rhythm are spot on; reminds me of pirates of the caribbean or the assassin's creed Black Flag. My favorite part is the string runs; they just sound phenomenal and blend very well with the rhythm section. I don't hand out five stars very often but I think that this deserves it!

LunyAlex responds:

Thank you tremendously! It means a lot!

This is the amazing music that motivates me to get up out of my bed!
This stuff competes with Two Steps From Hell!

LunyAlex responds:

That's quite the compliment man. While I believe I still have a looooong way to go, it's really really humbling that anyone would think and say that. Thank you very much!

This is really good, and I absolutely love the dramatic build-up following 1:10. I think the highlights of this piece are easily the percussion work and the ever changing progression. It feels however a little hollow in terms of a climax and in fact I would have loved something really engaging - perhaps more brass-o-rama and strings - to occur after the ending, re-enstablishing thus the main melody. I also understand however that things got in the way for you, and that's why I'm confident of the fact you could have potentially made it even more astonishing and refined.
Well done in any case

LunyAlex responds:

Thank you very much, I appreciate it!
