Hey man, really been awhile. Hopefully you remember who I am, the guy who leaves really long reviews, but heh, that aside, this song was really quite something. You are by far probably one of the only artists (other than a couple others) that really hit the style of music I like: epic symphonic metal at it's peak. But yeah, I still got some suggestions to make as usual.
-Composition is just simply brilliant, it always is I guess, heh.
-Sitar was pretty damn amazing, kept picturing some weird Arabian dude shredding his ass off. But yeah, sounded really authentic.
-The part that started around 1:32 was pretty cool.
-The weird breathing noises in the background that recurred throughout the song added a nice effect. Although I would've like those driving drums in that section to be a bit heavier and angrier sounding.
-Chime effect at around 4:18 was a nice transition. Although I would've liked the drums in the following section to be bit more stronger sounding. Like maybe making it echo'ey sounding or something?
-Good implementation of those gong/cymbal hits.
-Do I really have to talk about all your instrument usage individually? We both know they're epic.
-Kinda too lazy to name all the cool effects/instruments you used, but they all really added to the mood of the song.
-Very epic string melodies that recurred throughout the song.
-Brass blares, were kinda "meh." I mean sometimes the rising brass blares sounded good but the steady ones in the background kind of sounded like weird versions of farts. An example would be the part that started around 1:20. And yeah I know you mentioned this already but I thought I should too.
-When it comes to you Jray, I usually choose not to complain about your synth guitars, cuz' even though I kind of dislike the grindy, buzzy noise it has I still greatly enjoy your music. But you know, real guitars would really make your songs something truly epic although it sort of already is.
-Ending honestly could've been better.
-Yeah, some transition could've been smoother but overall it's pretty easy to overlook.
So yeah, great job man, I've been a huge fan of your work for a long time now so keep it up! A download and a definite 5/5 from me. Oh and by the way, if you've read my pm yet about Revolution I've been kind of wondering for awhile what you think about it.
