My friend has a monster named the Kiratose that encases itself in a child. This monster feeds on human flesh!
I made a boss fight theme for it that is for a project a group of my friends and I are working on.
I hope you enjoy this unsettling but cool song!

I like the progression at the beginning. The dense texture at :08 is really fun. The strings sound a tad harsh in the mix, though - lot of high-pitched tones. I like the frantic synth arpeggios and loud mix, too. I think the melodies at around the 1-minute mark were a little hard-to-follow, and the piece has a couple minimalistic sections that don't really fit well into the rest of the fabric of the piece, most notably 1:24. You did a good job of keeping the vaguely creepy vibe embedded in the harmonic framework, though. The ending seemed a bit rushed/lazy. The piece doesn't even fade out all the way before the end cuts off. Despite the almost-too-fast pacing and compositional complaints I have, this is a really fun piece that seems suitable for a videogame. Keep at it, Alphysans! :)

It sounds really amazing. I enjoyed it up until 1:22 where it made it a little somewhat, I don't know what to say here, unsettling? Also the cello part sounds cool but I would say to keep it in longer. Also the fade at the end is sudden and is unexpected. Otherwise, really good. I would have to listen to your other songs to get a feel of your style, but so far I really enjoyed it.
