Wow, this IS tricky. I'll keep looking at it, something will drop into my head sometime. I'm thinking more along a soundscape, there's no story in there that I can feel, not at the moment anyway.

Cheers Gab smile.gif

UPDATE:
Zoomed in and discovered words; that will help wink.gif Can't make them all out, do you have a higher res copy mate? I've found a few of the same image but not high res, I can't make it the last word on the sixth one.



Googled and found GOT references. smile.gif I've never watched it but it does seem to be something I'd like, must try to find time to watch it from the beginning smile.gif

Yeah, you can relate also to the tv series story. People goes crazy with GOT.

Another approach could be to write down words of phrases that come to mind when looking at the images.

Hey Cael, this is epic in any sense! I think that the melody and groove of this track is so fresh and enjoyable. I already love it and it's just midi sound. Keep on working on it!

It kinda reminds of Home by DT. Which isn't by any mean a negative thing!
I could see myself jamming my head to this! every now and then. biggrin.gif

Struggling a bit with the vocals at the moment, so here's a version without:

Improved the mix a bit, I think, by changing some things:



Tomorrow hopefully vocals. Planned to do them today, but didn't get around to it smile.gif

Really good mate! I like the fact that this sounds fresh and modern. I can relate your song with some modern Progressive Metal bands that I've heard recently. The tune has very interesting rhythms and clean arrangements. Keep going.

Working on getting the 2nd verse down, but I've had to change the vocal parts a bit as I didn't like the way they sounded when I sang them. This is the 1st part:
