Beautiful piece! Very serene and powerful.
Thank you dude. :)
While I have very little experience with HardStyle, I'm really digging this track!
The overarching melodies really give it a sense of grandeur. There's some slight bittersweet nuances there that I love.
The production is massive and all the effects and rises give it a very vivid dynamic.
5/5 - Great Track
Great piece! Feels very fresh. That timid violin (?) adds a very nice twist to the sound.
I really enjoyed this.
I think the melodies are lively and vivid and beautiful.
The rhythms sustain it well.
There's a lot of feeling here. The "shy" ending wraps up everything very nicely.
If there's one critique I'd mention is that the intro takes a bit too long, but it's not enough to demote a star.
i agree about the intro, its a bit too long :x.
thanks for the review !
Really love the delicate and surreal start followed by the transition to the more thunderous crescendo. Very effective. The choir is awesomely used.
Production is very slick and full.
I'm imagining a very futuristic dystopian world. Camera pans through a city that combines classical architecture with metallic, robotic elements.
Probably not what you had in mind, but I'm loving what I'm hearing and picturing, hah.
Great work! Good luck!
Haha, well you won't believe this, but the picture I used for inspiration on this song fits your description perfectly! Thanks for the feedback, I'm glad you enjoyed it! ^_^
The melodies are as deep as they are dark and melancholic. The production is fantastic, with the hybrid elements adding an extra layer of freshness.
The musicbox intro and outro are perfect.
The choir is sinister, yet very humane.
The cello is haunting.
Don't know if either of you has played the game Divinity: Original Sin, but this would work very nicely in there. It's a mysterious fantasy dark-fairytale-y RPG featuring one of my favorite soundtracks in many years.
I only bring it up to underline that I really, really love the style and quality of this track.
Best of luck and amazing work!
Thank you for reviewing our track, LunyAlex! :3
I think I turned this track much darker than its original bas was with my melodies. I even took some risks and used some notes that logic tells should clash, but that sounded good to me. Hopefully, the judges appreciate more experimental harmonies.
I'm glad to hear you liked the music box! The intro was an idea that I had, but was very unsure of whether we should use or not, but dem0 convinced me that it fits, and used it again very effectively in the outro :)
You can also thank dem0lecule for most of the choirs and for the cello. He is amazing at those!
I haven't played the game, but I don't know about dem0. I'm glad to hear that our track would fit in such a game though! I'll have to listen to some of the soundtrack when I get time.
Thanks a lot for your praise, and best of luck to you as well!!!
This is amazing!
Phenomenal production and orchestration (I care little for classic conventions).
And while it doesn't sound full-full, that is no detriment to the piece. A certain hollowness is thematically fitting.
Delightful track and a great fit to the art piece that inspired it.
Thanks a lot man! I also was quite happy to find the artwork. There is so many amazing art here on NG...
Great tones, juicy raw production and some amazing solos.
Superb work. My only constructive criticism is that maybe a lead guitar following the string melody would've helped the strings fit a bit better. But it doesn't detract from the song.
Awesome man, thanks for your review! Do you mean the string melody in the beginning? I do suppose that part would sound nice with some lead, I may consider adding lead to it in the future. Thanks once again!
Amazing production and writing.
The transition at 2:09 is peculiar, but in no way would I say it's bad.
The synths are crispy and the bass is full. The pulsing nature of the song is very entrancing and atmospheric.
5/5 - Easily one of my favorite EDM tracks on NG.
Thank you! Goodluck in the NGADM too!
Fantastic production and lots of feeling. Gets pleasantly creative as well.
The rhythmic and atmospheric changes, as well as overall progression and vibe make for a really memorable song. Vocals are completely on point.
Man, that was a delightful little journey.
5/5 - Would drive on a rainy night while feeling fully cathartic to
