Mountains in an Angry Sky
"Mountains in an Angry Sky" is a dramatic track set in the key of G minor. Its main characteristic is the contrasting mix of a melancholic melody played by orchestral instruments with an intense dubstep-like accompaniment.
Its short intro establishes the dubstep accompaniment that will go to play throughout the whole track. As the song itself starts, its main melody kicks in played by a trumpet; said melody is made of few spread out notes, with phrases that end on long notes. This musical idea is repeated a couple times with different orchestral instruments, all accompanied by the electronic beats, as the main motif of the song is established. The song then transitions to its next section, which starts with a brass instrument playing the melody from the previous section, but the dubstep accompaniment is much louder and harsher, and a high electronic-sounding synth plays some isolated notes alongside them, making the song busier. This synth backs off, while the electronic beats go back to their previous intensity, as the main melody is played by a synth that is a middle term between electronic and orchestral-sounding, ending its segment on an overly dramatic tone. Following that, the "ARR1" synth takes on the mantle of the main melody, as the dubstep accompaniment gets louder once again, and the high electronic-sounding synth also comes back. The song calms down, back to an orchestral instrument playing the main melody with the electronic beats, as it finally resolves. An orchestra hit indicates the start of the final section of the song, which instead focuses on the dubstep beats, as they play a busy melody in contrast to the one played by the orchestra previously, all while a synth plays a countermelody consisting of notes that give a sense of rhythm. As the song reaches its climax, this section is abruptly interrupted by the intro of the song, which is followed by two orchestra hits that bridge to the main melody, as the song loops.
