A huge upgrade to the iconic 2002 version. Make sure you catch the "pure symphony" version at http://www.8-bit-symphony.com
Turns out the only way to top Glyn R Browns 16-year old symphonic remix was to have Glyn himself come back and update it. Amazing stuff and instant classic if I ever heard one!
Love this but prefer the 2002 version's overall expression, just needs a remix up to this level of quality and boom.. Masterpiece.
Is there anyone who can beat Glyn R. Brown? No, only Glyn himself - and he did it. He took one of his greatest Remixes - and improved it to a higher level. The old one is still epic - this one here is (my opinion): The Most Epic Track Ever!!
EDIT: Great stuff after several listenings and better than first one.
Awesome
This is simply amazing. The only way to top it is being at the live performance in June

I didn't think your superb symphonic remix from 16+ years ago could be made any better. I was wrong, so wrong! The flute sounds just wonderful (makes me wonder if it was written with Ben in mind...), the choir sounds even more emotional, and the dynamic flow of the arrangement makes it sound very cinematic. I really like the parts where the melody line quickly switches between the various sections of the orchestra. Even though it sounds similar to your previous Firelord arrangement, it's clearly very different - and even better. I'm sure somewhere up above Ben is listening to this, too, with a big smile on his face...

Well, I have a problem with that track. The old Remix from 2002 was epic, is still one of my absolute favourites. But - which word is higher than epic? Let me say it this way - This track here is the most epic track ever!!! I'm absolutely happy to see you back, Mr Brown. Last years you were very silent. And you, Sir, are now my first nominee for ROTY 2019.
