First of all your song sounds pretty innovative and solid to me. You perfectly know what you´re doing and there´s a lot of experience obviously to see. You made a fantastic job in mixing this whole midi thing into an enjoyable song (most people here seem to know a lot about the midi software btw).
Your whole song reminds me somehow on brainstorm or communic stuff, what is a pretty good thing (at least for me :D ).

From the beginning on you create a pretty catching atmosphere. The vocals are awesome and the lyrics fit perfectly.
Though there isn´t any riff that´s a highlight per se, but it´s a good thing, ´cause this way you managed to keep the atmossphere you raised up.
The only negative things I have to mention are your climax and your solo.
I think the climax is a bit to crowded and the solo too proggy. These parts rip the mood apart someway. Not in a drastical way, but there is space to improve the thing.

But non the less this is an awesome song. One of the best compositions I heard for long.

Final rating I´ll give after hearing all songs.

I really liked the bass in the intro. Then Daslafism kicked in at measure 17 which wasn't a bad thing, it never is lol. Honestly I have no criticisms on this piece other than that it's a little long for my taste. But this song had everything. Good riffs, good solo's, dramatic vocals, good sounding time changes as always. Another epic from Daslaf. Another good thing about all you pieces is that it's like a story, a good well plotted story. Maybe one day I'll be able to throw this much imagination into my music.

When I first heard this piece there were a few things that bugged me slightly, and I believe I told you so, but I won't bother mentioning them here because, as I gave it more listens, all of that went away and the song got really stuck on my head, I remember playing the outro riff mentally all afternoon this one day... xD I guess this is the mark of great songs, and this is one of them, my favourite from the comp.

The intro... I'll contradict Jazz and say this is Daslafism too, a chord choice that seems odd at first but it's good. Reminds me a bit of Nails and the song formerly known as "for Shannon". The harpsichord is a cool unexpected touch.

Then... boom, here comes the metal. Again unexpected, but it's a good surprise. Despite not being overly heavy, it keeps some real power throughout, and catchiness is the key - the way you manage to create themes that are original without being exceedingly technical and complicated, and that stick. The verses are good, the chorus is great (beautiful vocal harmonies throughout). The part labelled "riff" got me thinking for a while, that Ab major switching to Bsus2... a case of dissonance that I'm not so sure how cool it was. But I got used to it.

Slow part is sweet, not much to say about it really. Climax was slightly unxpected once again, switches to a Spanish kinda theme (despite your comment about "french hippies".. xD), but it works suprisingly well to me at least. The guitar solo starts great, I'm not so sure about bar 189, kinda odd rhythm there. Anyway, the only thing I think is that it was a bit short. I would have kept it going for a bit longer, maybe shreddier in the end, and then fade to outro. No biggie though. :P

Well, you know by now what I think of the outro. xD

Overall, great job, your best since Trial of the Gods.

Endeavor - Daslaf

Like Jazz, I found the song to be meh when I first listened to it. Pleasant, but wasn't leaving an impression until the vocals came in. They gave the verses a real dramatic feel, of whom to me, feel like a real strong point of the song. The vocals really made this song so much unbelievably better.

About the choruses - there's only really one thing that slightly gets at me with them - the first track. I dunno, maybe I'm just being picky or something, but the overdriven guitar part really nudges me in an irritating fashion. Unfortunately, I can't really explain it in terms of theory, but I believe it's something to do with the intervals, in the scope of the two guitars combined. Just annoys me a little, but I think that's more me than anything.

Ah, I liked the Slow Part a lot. It was nice and relaxing - and I can just imagine how the vocals in that part would sound. Nice songwriting there.

Now, the Climax didn't quite start feeling like a climax until bar 181. Which in turn only lasted for two or three bars. Then things had a *relative* cooldown for the guitar solo. I think the lack of distortion was something to do with it - considering the energy of the previous verses and choruses (the meat of the song, imo), it didn't feel like what it was intended to be.

I had no problems with the remaining sections that I've neglected to mention - they were all fine. I guess the only real thing I have left to say is that... I dunno. It's lacking that little extra something that makes me go "WOW".

4 stars.

I like the amount of chords, the slow part is amazing. Though i had difficulty in understanding why some instruments don`t fits for me (the notes). It`s a good song with complicated chords. Sometimes i have difficulty to understand them (and it`s due to my slow unexperienced in jazz brain). I will give 3.5 stars (blame me for my rate).
