    I actually wrote it years ago and posted it here, but I wanted to re-record and polish it up. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the composition/arrangement/mix/mastering! Enjoy!

    pretty cool, definitely nails that battlestar galactica/bear mccreary vibe minus the djenty guitar tone around 4 mins.

    Accurate Analysis is accurate. I really need to watch it again.

    Guitar can be pushed back at the start. More reverb as well then. Just to give it more of a creepy ambience.

    Velocities of your backing need to be worked on to make them feel more natural. Some of them feel very fake atm.

    @KnightBrolaire - that's exactly what I was going for!

    @KingAenarion - Thank you for the excellent suggestions. I'll definitely try a different reverb setup in the beginning. Yeah, it's hard to give attention to velocities when you have so many things going on at once, but I'll take the time.
