Minstrel - Minstrel's Rise


Author Comments

So after I released Hollowed Out, it took like another year and a half to come up with something original. I'm pretty sure I had already put up the cover songs, but it was all in development of my style. Then I came up with Dragon, an EP that I haven't released yet, but intend to this year, definitely nailing my desired style on the head.
Fast forward about a year later, and I came out with this song. I tried a few different things here, and not all of them turned out the best. I tried mastering the song a bit differently, and didn't turn out as desired, and I tried making a home brew music video, which I personally didn't grow attached to.
The song itself it pretty slick though, heavily inspired by Orion by Metallica, I keep it slower than the song I'll upload next week, but it feels powerful.

Enjoy, and be excellent to each other!

The flame ignites
The path is right
So take the flight
Know I will try
Won't stop until I reach the sky

I've felt the end
I've questioned friends
The lonely trend
It's not in vain
There's been advantage to the pain

Lessons I've learned
From the absurd
The Truth is heard
Brings but a glimpse of hope
Seek guidance where it can't be spoke

Magic I've seen
You can't believe
Unless you're me
But know it's true
It's also something that's within you

Now you'll witness
The change in tides
And view the Minstrel's Rise

Ride through the waves
Go insane
Such is life

Wake up you'll know
Darkness goes
Feel the light inside

Now hear me sing
Raise your wings
Learn to fly

Now you'll witness
The change in tides
And view the Minstrel's Rise
