I found that to be a really nice, enjoyable listen. It felt very heroic throughout (which might be an issue if you also mean to convey the fall of the Roman empire - perhaps tweak it to be a bit darker?). I really like the way your separate guitar parts complemented each other.

Also pretty sure I picked up some Maiden vibes, especially around 119.

If you've got a moment, here's my latest:

EDIT: A lot of people on this forum can be anal about having only GP5 files; I've got GP6, so haven't a problem with yours, but you may find it beneficial to convert to GP5 despite the loss of automations and control you have on the inferior file typing.

well , than get it , i dont understand why people still use GP5/4 , you can not argue the sound quality differences and the new UI is just getting used to a bit , after that it becomes just as familiair as GP5/4 , just get ouf of your confort zone and try it ... if your computer can handle it that is.

and no i will not be converting to GP4/5 , i dont want people to crit a version of my song that is a lot more enferior than the original idea and doesnt represent it well at all , so people without GPX can go here

I only listen to midi anyway so it makes no difference sound wise.
The lay out of GP6 is horrendous compared to GP5, nowhere near as intuitive, organised or user friendly.

if thats your opinion thats fine

but it sounds like u just opened gpx once and were to lazy relearn the program , wich if you learned it you would know there's a lot more options now and it actually is pretty good.

and at least crit my song and tell me it doesnt make midi sound like some lame 70's band before saying it makes no difference.

Not at all, I've used GP6 more than enough to know that I much prefer GP5 still. And it's hardly like I'm the only one who feels this way.

It regards to the sound, I don't care what difference GP6 makes. This program is used to tabulate ideas expand on them, not to make finished products. At most I'll add some backing synth or a delay track but if I really want it to sound good, I go record it.

Onto the actual song then, midi first.
Quite like the intro, drum roll could be more interesting though.
It's all alright but a bit boring. Nothing of note is happening.
Triplet riff was a nice change of pace.
None of this is particularly interesting though, it's just kinda passing me by.
Break it pretty.
I'm a fan of long songs but this is outstaying it's welcome, it's just not holding my interest. It's not even that long is it?

Now with RSE.
It all sounds basically the same, better in some ways, different in others, but frustrating thin and airy throughout. Sounds like they record the RSE samples in a windtunnel.

I don't have gp6, so I listened to your soundcloud link
Then I opened the gpx with this to take a better look ->http://www.tab-exporter.com/

First of all, wow, this is a long piece

The intro sounds perfect in the soundcloud, and plain in gp5, so I will relisten to the soundcloud, and comment using the bar numbers in gp.
The main theme is quite memorable and well developed.
Bars 26 to 28 in my opinion break a bit the buildup, kinda like a break in the flow, but it still works.
Nice bass all around, nice to see that it got some attention, those are usually my favorite parts to write
Bar 115 - 119, one of my favorites, simple but effective.
The parts with the vibrato starting at 136, nice, sounds cool!
The outro ends the music nicely.

Not sure if you intend to add lyrics, I presume this more a instrumental work, overall, I would give it a 7 out of 10. Very well composed, however besides the main theme, it lacks some memorable parts, difficult to keep the listener attention for all duration of the music.
Also I found it difficult to relate it to the roman empire (but well, for that I would expect other kind of instrumentation instead of a electric guitar focused piece)
