"...and yet it was but one and not the greatest of the hosts that Mordor now sent forth."

Perfect high fantasy music.

Thanks :) This was actually inspired by Howard Shores work on lotr / hobbit. ;)

Your mixing has improved a lot! The mix feels wide, and it's pretty clean and balanced for the most part.

I dislike how the choir feels buried in the mix at times, but it blends well, isn't distracting, and enhances the piece nonetheless, so I suppose it works. I see Cinewinds is used here but I'm having trouble discerning the woodwinds. I think more woodwinds can be used for countermelodies, ornamentation, and doubling.

The tremolo note at 1:08 lasts too long imo, and it makes the track feel less realistic.

During the climax at 1:15, I think there's room to double the melody and horn notes with woodwinds an octave higher.

at 1:47, I think a flute can be used to soften the high strings and enhance the emotion.

There are many ways I can imagine the woodwind family enhancing this track, but I'm not sure if it would fit what you were aiming for.

This is a lovely piece with solid dynamics and structure.

KevinMueller responds:

Thanks again for your feedback EverErratic! I really appreciate it. :)

You're right, I could improve on my woodwinds. I'll definitely keep the tips you gave me in mind for the next time. :)

Really good job dude, nailed it!

KevinMueller responds:

Thanks a lot :)
