Reviews for "The rise of -"


-Very nice atmospheric piece. It's one of the main reasons I enjoy classical type music best as a purely instrumental work. I love how deep and dark it starts out only to lighten as the song progressed becoming more triumphant and determined. It did come to an unexpected end for me but it's most likely due to the cliffhangar aspect and not a full ending.

Thank you so much for your comment :) I will try to finish the second theme, so the cliffhanger can come to justice ;)


I was hoping to hear some more violins during the song. I was hoping for some "Paganini"-style violin, but... no such luck.

Anyway, the song you created works well even without crazy violins. I really like the atmosphere you create. It is somewhat "majestical" but it also creates great suspense. I had an image in mind of two huge armies preparing for a great battle. Both of them meet on a big field and they are just lining up, about to ride into battle when their commander orders them to do so.

Great song!

:O How does a Paganini style violin section sound like? He's a artist right?

Aah, thank you very much Hagri.. erm.. Haggard! It's always a good sign when ppl listening are easily imagining scenes to a piece, right? ;)

Thank you again for your commment!

Absolutely amazing.

What an amazingly majestic piece. This is certainly a change from what I usually review. It's absolutely incredible.

You really made this entire composition all by yourself? I'm absolutely amazed. The combination of all the instruments you've used, which, as far as I can hear, is quite a lot. I really like the rhythmic section that comes in. It's not too loud and really adds to the play, though I believe it could quite easily stand by itself, without rhythmics. Then again, it would have a more mysterious feel to it, rather than majestic and awe-inspiring.

I don't really have much to say about it, other than that. I can't find anything wrong with this song. It's... amazing.
