This is extreme good quality as ever. Well arranged, perfect instrumentation, well thought, great production, everything. The beginning reminds me of the famous murder-ballad of nick cave. Great Job

I like this song - but. :)
Would not call this a hip hop beat. And I wish it had more variations. The drums are ok, but the could be better. And I agree with hans, that some distortion could fit pretty good. Maybe some kind of thunderstorm?
Thanks musikpirat. Ok, I’m not that familiar with hip hop and I thought a slow and heavy electronic beat would achieve the requirements. ;-) I changed it to “electronic beat” in my description.
The lack of variations in the beat is intended. What Hans has criticized was the cleanness of the song. I think this has much to do with the orchestra library I use and how I implemented the instruments via MIDI. A real live playing orchestra would react much better to the suspense curve.

I love strings and normally am not so a big fan of distorted guitars. But there’s no “but” here - perfect mix of all the elements. Great!

Reminds me of Robert Plant’s collaboration with Alannah Myles on Rockinghorse, in that it is both delicate and melancholy.

I Love this mix
I have to agree with Musikpirat, I would not call these hip hop drums. I love your arrangement and your choice of sounds. The drums you used are perfect for this mix. Thanks for the smile. This is in the ipod and will be on repeat.

Great orchestral sound with metal guitars.A heavy drums section might be more tasty at just moment of metal guitar.only my opinion.Generally this is an excellent mix.Congrats B.O.
Thanks CSoul! Yes, I thought the same while making this remix. :)
I also tried normal rock drums but then I decided to use these simple electronic drums because they better support the general mood of this song by leaving more room to the other instruments.

Orchestration is good. Great composition For me, the contrast between mechanical sounding drums and organic feel of the song is a distraction.
