Allrighty, thanks for all the votes!

It really doesn't matter to me what place I end up getting - unless I'm #1 :D , but I have to say that a vote of 5 is quite dissapointing. Even 6 is unreasnonable low to me.

I honestly must say that I don't think this tune is that mediocre. Oh well, each to his own taste I guess.

See you all around! :)

After giving this some time I think it has grown to something better. But it's far from your best. ( Rottekongen! )

thanks people. Yeah, must say it took some time.

@Dane: yeah - and in addition to that, the sink was actually in there for a while, as ring modulation on some of the higher notes in the lead.

A little over the top though - even for me…

Yep, that's a lot of stuff in 3 channels, a bit like throwing everything but the kitchen sink at the listener. But who cares when it's just so melodic?

Awesome song! Must have been a lot of work. How do you put all this into 3 channels?!

OK, a few words about the tune.

It's more then anything a theme that's been churning around in my head for a while.
The whole tune is built up around the lead, so it's an intense thingie, true.

Maybe too much for some - obviously not for me… :P

It's certainly not a game-over tune, that's correct.
It's a triumphant piece, felt to be an ovation after achieving a higher score than anybody else. That day.

A game completion tune, if you will, a salute to you, and the game,
that you now have just finished.

Yup, the Game-Over tune is the one you heard BEFORE this one.
Screw that - you're dead - now it's time to celebrate your sorely deserved

… and so you take that up there, and mix it with some Power Balladesqueness, a bit of game over, and not so subtle hints of guitarness, and there you have it.

Just what I was looking for when I heard the name of this compo.

Hee hee

… and a merry day to the lot of you :)

Solid jammy OMP tune in the Prosonix signature style. Tres decent!

Easy, smooth HS song. Although I miss sth. that makes it special.

Other tunes in this compo did touch my soul&heart more, this tune is good, but you did alot better tunes in the past years... mmmm Maybe a High-Score tune for some strange jump&run game...

Great stuff! I think it's just a bit too jolly for a game over song, and the melody a bit too intense too... I think it's more a "Congratulations, you made it!" song while the spaceship flies away after having destroyed the evil planet and so the hero returns to his loved one. And a lot of text explaining this while the song jams along. :) Anyway, a very nice tune and a big thumb up from me!

Had to give it some 8 minutes to "open" it up.. Maybe the melody is jamming little too much for my taste but after that is said, this one is good solid OMP tune, no doubt.
