Correction: Make the previous statement true here-ish, not back there sorry.
The song starts off with a great pulsating feel, don't let the drum kit take that pulse away lol. Keep that heavy drum you have in the beginning going and let it ride through this portion of the song.
This one is solid, I have nothing i can really say that would help the song except for some balancing with the bass and choral voices and you got it mate, excellent work.
Ok, I'm not a techno person, so I'm not exactly sure on how to tighten this one up any. What I can suggest is to try to pick a major theme of what you want in the song, as I hear it you have two, and then just do some variations on it. Like for example, if you took just from :07-:15 and just constantly tweaked it some. Changing the rhythms, adding repeated notes, you know, tinker with it. Not so much that a listener would mistake it for another song, but just play around with the sound and have some fun with it lol.
The ending made me sad because it stopped XD. End it with just the chant by itself for a few bars so we can chant with it! You got us hyped and supercharged with this one, well done. Well. Done.
An overall comment is more power in the drums. It's a bit weak and when i think of wartime spartan asskickin, I hear big BOOMING drums with the epic setup you already have. This is a really good one, had me supercharged XD. I wanted to go and do something, I had no idea what, but I didn't fuckin' care, I just wanted to WHOOP SOME ASS! The chant at 1:50 = perfect, love it love it love it!
If you're gonna cut the horns here, bring out your drums! Make it THUNDER with those things, it'll rile up anyone.
Then replay a loooong call from that cry right here to let the opposition know it's business time XD
lol I think opening with a french horn call for battle at the beginning would be epic.
For your intro, what you can do is drop the bass section altogether, start with the cymbal lead-in and then bring in the melody with it.
Right in here is an EXCELLENT ending spot. The song has closure at this point, so just let it end. What you can do is have the melody hold it's last note, keep the ostinato going, but with a ritard and decresendo and let it fall to nothing. It'll give em goosebumps lol
it almost seems to me that at this point the singer wants to go one way but the rest of the song wants to go another. I would think that maybe having like a solo violin to respond to her call would works wonders in this area. Give it a shot, if you don't like it, toss it out heheh :D
Right here, I would recommend a decresendo with that chord into the solo voice and let her singing carry the rest of the song's growth instead of just an overlap.
Previous comment for here as well heheh.
The song has a beautiful start, but the thundering bass overwhelms the beautiful song that's playing here. This is one of the spots that might need a balance tweak.
