Pip Malt is right! Very great composition. Very nice beginning with the bard-song-style. Great samples complete this outstanding composition. I look out for more like this.

This is awesome symphonic metal! It sounds like Haggard or Therion. The lyrics are very well done. The chorus could use some echo, though. All of the instruments are nearly perfect for this. The lead guitar is great, the flute is good, the harpsichord is good, and I could go on here. Just download.

Cool! Very nice composition, interesting vox, nice concept. Enough to make me really interested in the song and the composer/performer. Let us start from the very beginning: medieval-like climate with a harpsichord and a flute, soon to be backed by overdriven guitar and rock drums. This works great here. :) Then it proceeds to the vocal, which sounds a bit haunted ;) but it's cool! I haven't ever heard a tracked song with such advanced vocals. Also the guitar solo does not disappoint. We got everything here, what you'd expect from a song. Great combination of rock and medieval stuff. Finally, I must say this song is enjoyable from the beginning to the end - very well constructed, arranged and performed. If I were a grumbler, I'd say that in some parts the vocal might be improved, but really, I don't want to perceive myself as a grumbler - the song sounds superb. :) For the sake of downloaders on modems (I guess) all the samples are 8bit. I'm the last person to complain here though, they sound very clear and I did not feel any kind of discomfort because of the limitation. This song is made well enough to be fully enjoyed, nice tracking and good ideas.

           HOLY FOREST



      Crossing down the secret paths
       that led to the old valleys
      Riding through the sacred woods,
       the ancient sanctuary
       where lay, dead, our old gods...

      On our way we found the trace
       of the evil invasion
      Strange animals ran around us
       - nature's perversion
      And their tormented eyes...

         [bridge]
       Balance was broken between darkness and light
        Life was corrupted by an evil might
       The Earth was screaming, full of deep pain
        and we heeded her call across the mountains

           [chorus]
        Holy Forest, crying our names
         Mighty and brave, we have heard your call
        For the salvation of our beloved lands
         The dark reign of evil will now fall !


      The sacred flame of life won't fade
       smothered by Algoth's claw
      As ancient prophecies said,
       four warriors will crush the foe -
      And I know... We are the Ones !!!

        [repeat bridge & chorus]

 This song comes from our forthcoming musicdisk, Children Of The Rising
Sun, which will be released in September 2000. This disk contains 8
tracks, about 45 minutes of epic metal (it's not finished at that time).

 As you may notice it, those tunes were inspired by Rhapsody...:) I just
wanted to do a symphonic album with a story, like theirs... just to check
if I could do it :) It took me more than six months to compose and track
everything ! And now here comes the result... the first song is ready :)

 And since the theme of the disk corresponds well to the Fantasy Compo
theme, I decided to enter it with the song, just to see how far a metal
song would go there...:-)))


Hails go to : Cadaver, Hakan, Dragon, HolyBlood, Darkium, Razor,
Neomancia, Galahad, AeuK, BlueShade, Necromancer, Desperado, Daoloth, NiC,
The Wicker Man and all those I may have forgotten...

Special thanks go to Cadaver for those vocals, and all the hints about the
guitars. Big thanks also to all the members of the mighty choir you can
hear in the song (in fact, it's four guys, including myself, singing
around a single microphone, but who cares...LOL :)))

Enjoy, and if you like that song, just check the others on my site, and
don't forget the disk in September, of course ! :)

All orchestral samples were taken from Tracked Instruments Repository.
