Nice driving energy to it.  Love the part where the synth line descends.

Anthemic!

BOOM!

It's certainly a more powerful direction. Just make sure not to let it get too strong.

Love the synth wave pace and the staggering synths.  This could have easily been a cool 80s tv theme ala Streethawk or Airwolf smile But it also has a nice modern touch that reminds me of Carpenter Brut.

Bass and snare hit like a cannon ball! Much heavier sound this week. Great slippery slidy synths.  This is the soundtrack of a future Rocky XXIV where earth sends Sylvester Stallone to kick some robo/alien's ass but discovers a little bit more about humanity on that distant planet.

This track has a fantastic groove all the way through, I'm dancing in my chair!

This is indeed an anthem in the making! Could be the intro tune to a cool tv-series!
I'd pitch it to your local network, if I were you!

Thanks! That part was initially much shorter, but I got sound advice from a friend to really lean into that descent, glad you liked it!

Cheers! yeah I think I might even have layered it too thick in parts actually, but it was fun to make smile

Hehehe, thank you! We really need to start making these movies someday! I'd watch that one for sure!

very impressive sound palette... instant 80´s with a modern twist, great!

Powerful, loving it. Love the pulsing and big drums. Was good advice to lean into that descent and build up.
