I was just wondering how different it is to be presumably working for the escapist rather than yourself, do you get deadlines or do you get to work at your own pace?

If MiracleofSounds feels this song shouldn't be changed then he has no business singing next to the goddess Malukah. you don't leave yourself room for improvement with an attitude like that. Heck I even offered to improve this song. And the more you respond in such a negative way to any suggestions I give you makes me question whether or not you want to be successful in this line of work. I'm not surprised your songs only have gotten 30,000 views.
This comment fills me with rage. It's like she thinks she knows your own song better than you do or something.

I like that attitude of yours Mr. Soundwave.
We - people with small or no talent whatsoever - want our artists and celebrities to deliver quality sh*t, yet we want them to do it on our terms. Deliver, but be like us !

It reminds me an old saying (loose translation) :

"Critic and eunuch are very alike
they both can't do it, but they know - oh so well - how."


Keep up the good work !

Fast forward to December 2012...
When the fuck did you get a time machine?

OT: I really liked the Sovngarde song and found it completely fitting of what you were trying to do, sort of re-create some Viking Metal from whom the Nords were based upon. I found it seriously awesome. Very glad there wasn't a single meme too.

Also, the pattern of Verse-Chorus-Verse-Chorus-Middle-Chorus is used pretty much everywhere. So many pop songs, rock songs, rap songs and even some club anthems use it. I bet I could find some Carol-Anne Duffy poems that could use it. Don't think it should be used as a critique, but should be praised when someone moves away from said formula.

Calumon: Isn't it uncomfortable having a hard heart? :S

Youtube comments. I just... UGH!

I wouldn't have even given them the time of day but Gavin seems to have an ability to respond to the worst comments and destroy them. So continue doing that!

And if having you obsess about your music produces songs like these, please obsess more!

Well, don't if you're going to have legitimate health concerns. I do want to say I did hear the orchestration and I'm eager to hear what you're going to do with your software now that you've got the options to mess around!

Keep it up Gavin!

Gavin, you pack some serious bite. ;)

Loved the Sovngarde track, and I'm quite pleasantly surprised you share my love for the Crysis 2 soundtrack.

Why oh why can't people just see that "he" (or in this case son) can just be a generic term not refering strictly to men, "children of the snow" would have sounded terrible and daughters wouldn't flow either. She's just one idiot tho, no big deal.

No fus ro dah? i'm dissapointed

No and there's no arrows, knees, sweetrolls or cake either.
I actually assumed the deep growl round about the 3:40 mark on the short version was saying Fus Ro Dah, it made sense to me. What was that? Was it even a voice, or just a sound effect? My hearing is letting me down here.

'Sons' fits better with the Nordic theme as well. I doubt there were many female vikings.

"Fast forward to December 2012 and the obsessive behavior hit an all time high point"

When did you use my time machine to go to December 2012. Adults these days, using my things, why when I'm older...

Anyways. You defiantly deserve a pat on the back for making kick ass music and surviving through the seas of hate.

Keep on rocking and aim high. If you hit the big times one day, I think you'll bring some much needed fresh air to the current state of some genres.

Its always nice to see criticism being torn to shreds, well, the non constructive or insightful criticism.
Its also nice to see the 'Uploaders comments' on YouTube to seen even more misplaced arguments being trounced.

Great song, great guy, great game.

You'd be amazed how many people speak such self-imagined authority about the songs. That's the web for you!

You can't go wrong with Hanz Zimmer really :) It was an amazing soundtrack, but as much as I enjoyed the game I did find myself thinking the epic music was deserving of a better story.

"Deconstruction by Devin Townsend"
*/cheers* More people oughta know about Townsend!
As this was mentioned with Nightwish's Imaginerum I am going to have to give this a listen.

I would like to thank you for the great music you keep giving us. Especially in this era of studio-processed, auto-tuned to death, lowest common denominator, TV told me to listen to it, music.
Now to listen to this longer version of the Sovengarde Song.

I thought Sovngarde Song was some of your best work, and I'ts awesome to hear how much work you put into it. People say video games are worthless, this alone is proof of how very wrong they are. On a side note, would SOPA and PIPA completely destroy your method of business?

What the hell did that say? Change your style?! Gav, you're a master of versatility, don't let anyone tell you different!
In regards to the song, do you even need me to tell you that I loved it? I haven't even played Skyrim yet (don't worry, I'll get round to it soon enough) and I knew that it fitted the game perfectly. I do see where some people are coming from on the guitar section though. I thought it was suitably brutal, but I think it's the location of Skyrim; the huge, open, blizzardy world with the mountains taking you high into the sky just evokes wind to me, and so some people may have wanted a purely orchestral piece which featured wind instruments at their core. Reasonable enough, but I for one thought you did an excellent job in capturing all aspects (except said dagger crafting) Skyrim beautifully, and in a game as huge as that, that's a pretty impressive task.
