Vanquish the Night

This is the first single from my next album which revolves around a story I've written. The album as a whole is meant to feel somewhat like a soundtrack of an RPG (like Chrono Trigger or Final Fantasy, for example). As a result, it has taken on a far more symphonic style than my previous work, but I love it.

What I used:

Avid Pro Tools
Gibson Les Paul
Epiphone Bass
Oktava microphone
Electric piano with MIDI-out

Lyrics:

I stand beneath the waves of a crashing sun
But if I have found what I'm looking for
Then what have I done?
In my mind I can see just what I've made believe
In my eyes it's clear just what I need to save

Fear we can use to push us through
We can't afford just to be the same
And all will fail if we don't do what's right
So we must vanquish the night
No you can't believe just in love
The fuel of hope can't be left undone
If we believe in all of us
Then we can vanquish the night

I can feel the hope in my soul as it's falling through
How can we, just us four, hope to shift the tides
And save this world
But the love in your heart is like fire
Gives life anew
Persevere, it lies in us
Rise above and shine, illuminate the world

Fear we can use to push us through
We can't afford just to be the same
And all will fail if we don't do what's right
So we must vanquish the night
No you can't believe just in love
The fuel of hope can't be left undone
If we believe in all of us
Then we can vanquish the night

We will vanquish the night

Just brilliant. Very nice vocals and song mixed well overall.

One thing though, and probably it is just something I notice, there is this splash cymbal (high treble panned mostly to the right side) and it kept yanking my attention away from the rest of the song. Prominent 1:04 onwards

Composition and flow logical and guitar solo tasty but not overdone.
