Calm Before the Storm

We already did a boss battle theme before. This time I want the music that plays before the battle. It could be the music while you are gearing up before any old battle in a game. Or it could be the music before humanity's final stand against the zombies/aliens/robots/crabpeople/whatever...

At least one minute
Original song for this contest
Any instruments, midi or recorded

Here's my song for an example Preparing for Combat (Still a WIP)

Some games go all LOTR, some have a funny lighthearted thing and others are sad or full of energy.
I will try if i can find the time.

I have a song almost done, but could you push the deadline back a day or two? I might not be able to actually finish it til Tuesday night and I don't wanna have to rush to get it posted in time.

Plus, I'm sure no one else would object to having more time.

This started as a soloing exercise, but I really liked it so I made it into a full song. It came out sounding insanely Arabic, but I'm okay with that. I was trying to go for that "evil is slowly creeping upon you" feel.

I'd like to give a special thanks to my friend Nick for letting me use his recording equipment as well as for playing all the percussion.

Why, thank you, sir.

All I've gotta say is collaboration is amazing. Having my friend put his own percussion in the track really breathed a lot of life into it that I didn't have on my own.

I kinda just made this so it's somewhat underdeveloped.

I tried to make this theme a precursor to the BATTLE THEME I submitted in the battle theme contest way back. Lol, it didn't work out that way but I still think it's not too bad.

Good entries guys. Jit's makes me think of outer space battles and the terminator theme.

I really like Murzain's recording. Nice playing from you and your friend. But unfortunately I'm not sure how well it fits the theme.

So I pick soundsandstuff's as the winner. Gives me a Super Metroid feel and really captures the feeling that something big is about to attack.
