This song was also composed for the same short film, as the track "Burn Into Ashes", you can read the back story there (for convenience, here's the link for the song: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/840831).

The idea for this song was to capture the inner mental state of the protagonist when he starts to loose the fight against his demons inside. To portray that I used symphonic instrumentation with some synth pads and with some heavy percussion dropping some chaotic choir patterns atop.

There are not much melodic chrod progression going on, but I tend to believe that for 'evil' or 'villainous' themes you can't really use complex or long chrod progressions, you just have to find a devilish motif that will do the job. (Just think about it, most of the people recognize only the starting motif of Star Wars Imperial March, only the most enthusiastic fans know the rest of the theme.) But that's just my theory, feel free to express your concerns if you think I'm wrong :)

And also, feel free to rate, comment, download or use the song!

Too Boring...

madboss responds:

Yeah, I agree that there's not much going on in terms of variety. I can't recall now how much instructions I had from the director, but I assume this track was made as a demo to show a build-up. Nevertheless thanks for sharing your thoughts with me!
