Ah this is the type of track I appreciate most.
Dying is serious business indeed, and how somebody dies is what makes it serious in my opinion, at least musically. This song made me think of a hero struggling to stay on their feet as they trudge along, and then they finally collapse.
The ending was a tad strange, I felt it just kinda unravelled, the beginning however, was immaculate. It may not be original, but the fact you can recreate something of this nature entails you are able to contemplate the structure, and that means when you do grow a style, it will rock all teh way into Mordor and back!
The choir work is my favourite part, really gave that feeling I was looking for.
I wonder if reverbing that piano more may have made the sound more effective.
In pieces like this, chords are always a must. I don't think i've ever heard an epic piece without chords, chords are like candy to epic pieces!
In any case, great work TheAmateurAnimator, i'm really pleased to see you take these strides, I wonder what you will bring to the table 6 months from now. Keep up the good fight!
