When @backwardecho told me if I would be interested in working on a tribute album for Dem0lecule I didn't have to think twice xD
Dem0 was the first friend I met on NG and he has always been very supportive and kind to everyone.
He has had a tough time that's why I decided to write some sort of "hopeful" song for him. I wanted the intro to sound a bit similar to an older song I wrote called 'Fall of an Angel' Since he seemed to like that one.
Check out what other awesome NG musicians wrote for the album over here :
Hope you like it Dem0 :)

I absolutely adore this piece! It starts off melancholy and beautiful and cheers into a Lion King/Madagascar type ballad and it's all just beautiful!

First word: Holyfuck! This is amazingly amazing! The production quality of this is top notch. That choir is so creative! Kwaya right? And you have used it the way it should! The piece began with spiritual motifs and progression. Then it drove into something totally unexpected. I love the that mallets in the background. Interesting you used string col legno/bartok for this haha. Great ideas.

The flow of the whole piece is extremely energetic and solid. Yet it still keeps everything else, especially the mood steady and not overwhelmed. You always have awesome ideas for creative melodies and harmonies, one of many things that I admire and respect about you and your production. You just get everything right where they feel like!

Thank you for believing in me, and moreover believing in the community of Newgrounds. I'll be probably bored many people out, but I can't say enough that NG is the place destined for harbor amazing people coming together from all corners of this blue planet. And that's something money can't buy. Thank you for this piece!! Take care! Hope to talk to you soon!

I like this a lot. Honestly it started out reminding me of some badass fantasy game, then it turned into the Lion King, and I was pretty happy with that

Mattashi responds:

Haha yeah! It definitely has that Lion King vibe xD
