Track 5/6 of "Death of a Prodigy".

This was originally supposed to be my third entry for the Newgrounds Inspired Music contest, but I couldn't finish it in time.

"The war drums cease when the prodigy is killed..." (album finale coming soon!)


Definitely want to hear this alongside a really epic and emotional animation. I can just see small militia groups fighting, over small trivial matters when in the grand scheme and irony that is humanity, neighbors, brothers, and communities are warring with each other. Super good braj.

Pr0tagonist responds:

Ah, it'd be nice to hear my music in an animation =3=

I'm glad you enjoyed the song!

I like the empowering and dramatic mood this piece has. Those samples are actually pretty good! The transition at :56 was a little sudden, especially considering the drastic change in mood. One of the little riffs that first appears at 1:09 reminds me a lot of Step's "This is Snake." Around 1:20, you can tell that the high strings get distorted a bit by the brass, and the dark percussion sounds a little muddy. I loved the way you ended the piece, though. It was dramatic, conclusive, and very fitting overall. Nice work, Larrynachos! Despite my criticisms, it seems rather appropriate for a war-themed videogame. Keep up the good work. ;)

Pr0tagonist responds:

Ah, the "This is Snake" is an arrangement of Metal Gear Solid songs. I'd be lying if I said that MGS wasn't a small inspiration for this piece ^^;

Thanks for the feedback!

Larry this is bewtiful, i wonder if i will see you become big ¬u¬
Larrynachos is pretty good at music.

Pr0tagonist responds:

Aww, thank you. You're too kind >////<

Aww, it's a shame you didn't finish it in time!
This track is beautiful at first. There are some great harmonies and melodies in here. That drastic change at 0:55 really took me by surprise though, and I love it :D
The action works really well in contrast to the beginning. Awesome job ;)

Pr0tagonist responds:

Ah, I'm glad you liked the contrast! I was really worried that would throw people off and they would hate it :X

Thanks a lot, LSD!
