Title: Leviathan

Category: Boss Music

Inspired by the Audio Portal, the music on New Grounds has inspired me to become interested in instrumentals again. I hardly hear music as interesting or engaging on other sites as I do on New Grounds and I'm grateful for a community like this.

Leviathan is a sea monster so large that sailers might confuse it for an island and fix their anchor to it. I imagine it being of a colossus size and a slow moving but unstoppable force. A boss fight less about defeating the enemy and more about simply surviving the encounter.


Wow, those camera shutter samples are really interesting the way you used them. Beautiful, though the kick drum seems a little loud, I feel the guitars could be turned up a little. Something about the percussion seems a little offbeat at times with the flow like the kicks perhaps, it's just slight, so I'm not sure what it could be. Other than that, great job, this is quite original.

Thanks for the review man! There is technically three kick drums on this track. The first one is a human heart beat, you hear it right at the beginning and was apart of the "camera sounds kit" I created out of samples. The heart beats only once per measure and has a digital delay that echoes to fill in the missing beats. So it sounds like four beats but its only one. There is a second real kick doing the same thing accompanied by tom drums. And the third kick is apart of the rock drum kit that comes in on the chorus when you hear the violin. Digital delay has been my obsession in my projects lately so I may need to tone it down a little, as that is most likely the peculiarity in the precision you heard. I'm glad you dig it!
