**Front page, woo! :) **
This is the prequal to another song of mine - Vagrant Soul ( 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.

I wake. Dust. I cannot breathe. I cough. As I open my eyes, I behold, before me, a world ended. Realisation. What beauty we left behind and yet what beauty I see even now. Serenity. Peace.

I begin my arduous journey. I am neither human nor machine. This stained portrait remains.

I stare into the distance, distruction all around and yet I am met with peace and serenity.

Flashes of memories past assault me as I wander. What cruel fate has met this world.

Will I one day find my peace?

Like a vagrant soul I wander. I continue to feel the pain of the lives before me and yet I am alone. I will find my purpose.

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.

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.
