The title represent the song perfect: The awakening of something powerful. Has a little suspense at the beginning and the second half of the song has a "keep fighting / don't give up" feeling. As polarpoole said, maybe the xylophone is an instrument that sounds a little abrupt in comparison with the rest of the orchestration, but isn't so bad. R2R n.n
Not too shabby. I definitely get pangs of MGS 1 from this. The sounds are good. The strings and choir patches have a nice characteristically synthetic sound to them. The song goes places, it doesn't just stay in the one chord sequence or melody. I like the addition of the 8bit lead halfway through and the bitcrushed snare, it's a nice retro throwback even further from the PS1/PS2 era I'm suspecting this track is trying to replicate. I'm a bit sceptical on those xylophones tho. They're a bit cornier than the rest of this track. Otherwise I quite like it, I'd be interested to know what the game it's from was going to be.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
