Probably my last song of the year!

This was really fun to make, it's like a mix between my usual techno with a touch of orchestral. I hope you enjoy this thing...

Album is coming really really soon.

Great song!

Good song. I like the punchy kicks and sharp bases. Nice sounds overall. Very diverse but they work well together. Reminds me of old school video games while still sounding fresh. Those strings introduced at 0:58 are very catchy. From 2:40 to 3:09 may be my favourite part. I like the piano. Good dynamics. Alternating between the quieter and louder sections keeps this song interesting to listen to. The parts transition well into each other. Good structure.

Great way to end the year! Looking forward to hear more from you in 2020!

Thank you man! I appreciate the review. Happy almost new year, hope to see you around in 2020 :D

I like the ominous church bells at the beginning and the 2008-ish techno synths thereafter. The texture is a bit minimal and perhaps missing some atmosphere for a while, but things start coming together more by around the 1-minute mark. Those cutesy melodies at :58 help give the piece a stronger sense of direction, and I love that growly mid-range bass synth at 1:15, especially combined with the vocal samples. The bridge at 2:15 or so was a little bland, but the melodic content at 2:40 was nice. I also like the thin, pizzicato-y synth at 3:25. I might've liked to hear a little more melodic development later in the piece as, at the end of the day, the arrangement is pretty straightforward. That said, I think the sound design and rhythmic details really make this piece what it is. Enjoyable track, PredatorMusic! Happy New Year. :)
