Made for the NGUAC Knock-out round, I made this track over the last 2 weeks whenever I had time. I think I surprised myself with how quickly I got this done, hopefully it will help me to get more stuff out there more quickly. Anyways, hope you enjoy this Orchestral-electronic hybrid!

very good 10/10

I like the mood and atmosphere at the beginning, but I think some of the harmonies sound a little indistinct in the mix, notably the percussion at :20 and the strings playing ⅛ notes at the beginning. The piece is a little slow to progress, and there also might be a bit too much reverb in the texture. I like the sense of climax into 1:01 and the syncopated string harmonies there. This piece really reminds me of Waterflame’s old style. I liked the prominent drums at the breakdown at 2:01, but they could really sound crisper in the mix with a little less reverb and more careful equalization. I also thought the lo-fi effects at 2:05 were a bit out-of-place here. The harmonic shift at 2:53 was a little sudden, but I enjoyed the uplifting vibe there and the structural contrast you offered with the more minimal bridge thereafter. There’s a bit of dissonance in the texture at 3:45, but part of that could just be the reverb. I like the second refrain at 4:15, but I think you could’ve varied the main melody a bit more. The emotional appeal of the outro was nice, and overall I really like the mood, rhythmic content, and atmosphere in this piece. Keep at it, Hyenaedon! :)

Wow! Thanks so much for the in-depth review. I'm definitely gonna be putting it into account when I fix this song up for a Youtube release. I think I really surprised myself with this piece, but it's still got a ways to go ;)

Reeeally like the triumphant feel here. The brass lead is awesome. I also love the snares. Great job mate

Wow, that sounds gorgeous, it looks like you managed to make an interesting sound, create a hybrid ... You're great, good luck winning the competition because it's really great ... Thanks for creating this track :3
