One Hour Compo - Round 414 (OHC414)

Atmospherium would have had first place, but I found the sound design a bit grating.
Random-storykeeper hit very nearly the same sweet spot as Atmospherium, but with better sound design. First place - oh, and a better closing as well.
Starla's submission was beautifully on point. If it weren't that somehow the pounding drum seemed inappropriate, it might have scored higher.

1) "In Company Of Angels" - Even though I'm not completely enjoying that lead (it gets a little *too* out of tune, especially near the beginning), pretty much everything else about this is fantastic. I love the pentatonic feel from the melody. Those rising notes give that "rising to the heavens" feeling, and this is probably my most favourite thing that's going on here. Great atmosphere and probably one of the more "uplifting" sounding entries.
2) "I'm 14 and This Is Deep" - The balancing starts a little off for me at the beginning, but the payoff is soooooo good once the vocals kick in. The parts in unison, the harmonies - these are really great. Sadly it does feel a little incomplete, but man, for those brief moments of singing is this ever great.
3) "Contemplation over Sorrow" - This reminds me a lot of "The Final Climb" and "Angels" from An Untitled Story (maybe a bit of "Eventually" as well). All the chords seem to have this really prominent pulse to them, which I like a lot. Use of the chorus sound is nice too. A little on the short side yes, but not bad for a first entry. Welcome to OHC! :)
Also really enjoyed: "Black Ice Meditation", "Paras", "generic megaman featuring an angel i guess", "Dusk Wraith" and "Black Sound".
