This is an NGADM Round 1 Review:
Wow, now this is what I called an action-packed track! Well done incorporating the intensity of the electronic sounds into the structure of the orchestral setting. Really catchy, with a raw sense of action. I must have listened to the part at 0:25 – 0:55 a hundred times; so good! Nice touch with the choir by the way, it really adds a ton of suspense. Actually, now that I think about it, I can really see this being in a Deus Ex game. Your drums are very well implemented, which of course provides all of the other sounds with a fantastic foundation.
I think that the production of this song could use some work. Sometimes it seems that there is a little too much going on, the result is that the track becomes muddy at times due to overcrowded instruments. A prime example of this can be heard at 1:03 up until 1:37. The drums are at war with the synth, especially with the lower frequencies. Some volume adjustment in this area might help. The strings from the very beginning until 0:25 and then again at 0:55 and 1:48 sound like they are stretched thin, excellent composition at these parts though. Forgive me if I am wrong, though I think at 3:32 there is some slight clipping (thought it could just be the glitch effect).
Solid track, and very impressive blending of those two styles! I'd love to hear more! :D
