The empire falls, no one survives.
Cinematic attempt right here :B
Maybe it is way too electric to be cinematic, but dats my swag

I like the climax at the beginning. The distorted sound really adds to the mood I think you were trying to create - it's very dark and ominous. It is very electronic, but I can still see why you called it "cinematic." I really like how the drums stop-and-start around 1:20. It's well-structured and smooth-flowing, and I love the instruments and moods here. Nice job with the filters and mixing too. This is a really cool piece, bro. I have a few small complaints though: the ending was a little anticlimactic and sudden, for starters. If you wanted to make it sound more cinematic, you should really aim for some more dynamic contrast, probably at least with some melodic content towards the end. I could picture perfectly some dark strings added in there...maybe some sort of punchy lead to add to the drama, too. Also, after a certain point it started sounding a bit dry without the drums, and I think that's one of the reasons the ending didn't appeal to me so much. A simple crash can go a long way. Still, interesting work here. Keep it up, man! ^_^
