Battle Born

NGADM 2017 Round 2

Oh the fading grey across the land
It is here we will take our stand
And our minds all aligning with hope
But the fields still call me home

Brethren, the time has come
Together, we fight as one
(All to arms, all to arms!)

On we ride, on we fight
Straight into the dead of night
Take up arms, steel your heart
And our blood will end the blight

Light the sky, should we die
Let them hear our battle cry
Hold your ground through the storm
Tonight we are the battle born

Daylight fades on dust and bone
Where men shall lay their stones
Hallowed ground that cries out for sacrifice
As the blood spills from their throne

And if the end should find us quickly
Weather with your might
We will be true in failure or victory
Standing strong we are the battle born

Oh, think of wars we have won
And the songs we have sung
Forever we'll fight together

Oh, should our blades become worn
And we die in the morn
We shall feast in the halls forever

On we ride, on we fight
Straight into the dead of night
Take up arms, steel your heart
And our blood will end the blight

Light the sky, should we die
Let them hear our battle cry
Hold your ground through the storm
Tonight we are the battle born

That reminds me of an anime opening. Still, 10/10

You're going to hate me. I seem to ALWAYS have the same thing to say about your work, you must be so bored.
This is an AWESOME song, well composed, well performed and OH SO EPIC. However you're still struggling with the production side of things, certain elements are still getting lost in the mud, hidden behind each other and I have to admit I've heard that drum kit a million times too many already. It's not suitable for this genre of music, I think, more for super heavy stuff because it's so poppy and dry sounding. Have you tried widening that snare? Maybe a little distortion?
My word of advice: Mix in mono before adding any effects. This will show you all the mud.

P.S. LOVING THE VOCALS, OH MY GOD.

P.P.S I still bloody love this track.

This is the best metal I've heard so far. Respect all the way man.

I can't give more than 5 stars T-T <333

BEST SONG EVER!!!
