    I really like that a lot, it flows really nice and its really gets some imagery going cause I was picturing the whole battle. Great job, can't wait to hear more.

    Almost has a kind of Jethro Tull feel to me on some of it in particular that first section. Cool stuff!
    Listened to a few of your pieces makes me want to go back to some of my prog roots and play with stuff like that again. Never really fleshed much of it out but here is one of mine from a nasty board mix live back in the mid 90's. Only played it out a couple times and never really got this one where I wanted it and put it down in the studio though. https://www.soundclick.com/html5/v4/...songID=2478667

    Reminds me of a few bands: Trapeze, Crimson Glory, and Fates Warrning. You should finish it!

    Interesting you would mention Trapeze as an old friend of mine Tommy Carter played with them for a little while! Honored by that my friend!

    Finally had a few hours to write the last part of this monster! I will update the OP when I have a chance with all three parts, but here's the third and final part:



    This part is the most challenging, it uses some pretty weird time sigs and the syncopation gets pretty intense, as well as some of the harmonies between the horns and strings.
