Death of a Hero


Recommended Posts

I wrote this piece for a music festival at my university, one that I later found out hadn't actually been scheduled to take place this year and I had imagined the email that had informed me of it. Lesson learned: Do not trust myself at all costs.

Anyway, the song is about a hero who faces a great evil oppressing the land, defeats it but is mortally wounded in the process. He dies, and finds himself in the afterlife. After first being apprehensive about it, he accepts it and learns that the afterlife is just another adventure. Before long, another great evil threatens the land, and the hero is resurrected in order to destroy it. The hero fights his way to the end-boss and begins his epic fight for the fate of the world. Just as he is about to make the finishing blow, the scene fades to reveal the world: safe once again.
