Atmospheric, reminds me of an old 70's 'Epic-story' movie.

Overall rating

Musically, it starts out pretty awesome. Production-wise it could`ve used better mixing throughout. The choice of deep strings and the pounding timpani in the beginning and then just a hint of the lead here and there - perfect! In the middle it switches (or tries switching) gears (like the original SID) - and this is where it gets a bit disappointing: where is the punch, the power, the in-your-face scariness? Instead of becoming an I`ll hunt you down, Last Ninja!-type threat it remains relatively mellow and dark. Great first half, fairly decent second half, but this second half is what prevents it from being my pick. Highly recommended for download, though.
