This is the prequal to another song of mine - Vagrant Soul (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0DIMMED0RQ). This Stained Portait explores the early days of the semi sapient machine, wandering the wasteland after humanity has long since left. Activated by a failing AI, he is now left to explore the dying world.
Vagrant soul explores the end of his life, this explores the beginning. I may fill in the gap between the two songs with a few more pieces and turn this into an EP or album. Time will tell... If that happens I will of course re-do Vagrant Soul in this style.

Watch the video to learn the story behind the song!

All guitar and bass was recorded by me. I used EWQL orchestral plugins and Native Instrument synths around these. Mixed using Izotope Alloy, Nectar and Ozone.

Thanks! I really wanted to keep it interesting all the way, I hope I've achieved that.

Pretty rad, brother. Dig it a lot. \m/ Some great elements, combined for some killer energy.

Thank you!

That's some tasty stuff, awesome dude!

MetalRenard responds:

Thank you. :)

Hey, where did the download button go? Wanted it to my music library... :-(

MetalRenard responds:

I always wait a few days for feedback before I make it downloadable so whoever downloads it gets the absolute final version.
I'll send you a pm when I make it available. EDIT: Done.
Thanks for commenting!
