Sounds great - love the pinch harmonics!
Also, that's an insane amount of tracks, great effort.

Thanks! Smiley  I wrote the bulk of that music from May 2012 to May 2013, with a couple of stragglers that were written past that point.  I actually still lack one track that isn't finished but I'm so burnt out... x_x

Added the link to the vgmdb.net page for the soundtrack containing the full tracks list with play times and total album length(215 minutes!)

Beautiful work, Zack!
Love the emotion and musicality you placed in each piece.

This game is going to be a huge treat on many levels!

P.S. - You know you've made something good when you're mentally exhausted from it, haha.

Listening through the whole thing for the first time, and as expected, this is fantastic. Currently on "Above the Chaos", which is absolutely beautiful. Can't wait to hear the rest...

Triple thanks! Smiley

And Drakken, thanks for the individual track feedback you've been tossing over on twitter, as well as the thorough listening of the album.  I'm assuming you were cut off at track 36 though since you were streaming them?  I think bandcamp hides any tracks labeled as a "Bonus". :p

Yes. Sadly I don't have the $15 to drop on the album right now. :-/

Definitely curious to hear the bonus material, though.

Starting my second listen. :D

Forgot to followup on my last comment... Valdis Story: Abyssal City has been released!  Not just the soundtrack but the game!

It's also been greenlit on steam but the developers are currently working on the achievements for the game before releasing it there.

If you are at all interested in the game itself you can get it at...

http://www.desura.com/games/valdis-story-abyssal-city/

http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-VSAC/valdis-story-abyssal-city

http://www.valdisstory.com/download


Also, there is this pretty awesome review of the soundtrack at...

http://www.rpgfan.com/soundtracks/valdisstory/index.html

(Please note that the composers/arrangers listed is based solely on the bonus tracks, of which only two tracks other people contributed to.  All 36 in game tracks were composed by me 100%, and guitar parts were arranged by Anthony Morgan on only one track out of those 36)

Anyway, thanks for listening if you do!

Tootles,
Zack
