"Burn honey, burn, let the fire eat away
I never liked the look of this town
Burn it down now
I'll run, they all know what I've done
I fetch my gear and take my leave from this mountain

I never had a chance to prove I wasn't guilty,
I always seemed to get blamed for
Every little crime, I didn't even have a name for
...

It was a match made in Hell,
Now the whole mountain burns
And every man gets what no man deserves

Our beloved kin never learned to fit in
Now I pay for my name, live my life in sin
How much less can I ask from you people?
This town stays in disarray
'Til the rules are the same for us all, hey
...

Bells toll all over town, burn, burn until it's all gone
Game over, what was a bad joke is now a reality show"

Sonata Arctica - Wildfire



A little experiment on fire this time. It was quite interesting since I haven't used fire element a lot in my works - I tried to create burning buildings in Center Of The Universe but it didn't work out as I planned. So, here's another try and I think it turned out pretty nicely.
This piece is once again inspired by oh-so-awesome Sonata Arctica. Wildfire is a kick-ass song and I wanted to create something that would represent its atmosphere. Something fiery, dynamic, intimidating... I'm not quite sure - in my opinion this piece might be a little bit too neat for that. I don't know, I've stared at it for so many hours I can't see it clearly anymore. ;) If you come up with something I've missed, just let me know.
Anyway, I really hope you enjoy my work. This piece makes me want to listen to Wildfire over and over again.

See the close-up of the burning town.


EDIT: Wow, thank you very much for the DD! :wow: I didn't see that coming. Also thanks for all the :+fav:'s, comments and critiques. I already fixed a flaw thanks to some of you - I didn't even realise the contradiction of the track before you pointed it out. :D It might look a bit more realistic now. Thanks a lot for the support!

An awesome depiction of an awesome story! Have you listened to parts II and III yet? Sheds a completely different light onto the protagonist.

This freaks me out because I've personally been in one of these situations. I was actually is three. We had three wildfires in two years. We were evacuated twice luckily our house didn't burn. It still spooked me. :fear:
Amazing work though! I love it!
Iribel's avatar
I can believe that was frightening - I'd never want to experience a wildfire like that!
Anyway, I'm glad you like this piece! :highfive:
