I'm converting my latest (3-part) metal song into a classical ensemble. This is part I...
I tried to make this song very climatic so hopefully that worked
Also this is my first time experimenting with orchestra instruments so if you could give me some tips or tell me if im using the wrong instruments (such as in percussion) i would appreciate it
Also headphones are recommended
EDIT: 10-18-11: I added a whole section... (edit 3)

It sounds pretty good. From the point of view of someone who can actually play one of the instruments in this song (flute), I can assure you it will be shit hard to play. But it sounds good, and all the instruments are pretty much in the right range for themselves.
Problems arise when you look at whether or not its feasible to play, though. This may not really be a concern to you, but the only thing that could really be a problem is the timpani, and only because you're going to need a lot of them. You play a bunch of different notes on them in this song, and since each drum is tuned to a single note, you're going to need a crane to lift your percussionist into a circle of timpani. Or you could tune them on the fly, which may or may not work, but has always been a dream of mine.

Thanks for critiquing
just to clarify there would be multiple players of each instrument such as the trumpet and that's why theirs multiple notes played at the same time for some instruments that individually play only one note at a time
