Not a really good anthem imo. Melody is just generic and I also don't like the tempo change. The anti climax however is awesome!
I hear home in that bass

lilfrenchidiot:
ceero:Nice melo, decent vocal, cool middle-section drop. I was like, yay, this was pretty dope! Well, until cca 4th minute :( if there is one thing that can make me effectively, 100% hate an otherwise good track in each and every situation, it's a tempo pitch for the last drop. Why the fuck would you do that for a Qlimax anthem :( So yeah, a little mixed feelings here, but probably for different reasons than most of other people from what I read. I guess I will just make my own edit and cut out the last minute and a half and I will be happy


I love how you are borderline allergic to > 160 BPM :+ (no offence)


it was simply unnecessary here and doesn't fit qlimax (sorry for bumping old messages im reading the whole thread lol)

niconietom: Qlimax vibes in this one.
I really dislike the lack of a spoken vocal, and the lack of a midintro.
Melody ain't dark at all.
God when I thought this couldn't get any worse, that stupid tempo pitch came in.
Jeezus this is a terrible anthem, and a super generic Ran-D track. :rofl:


Aight you summed up my thoughts (and probably most people thoughts)

I feel like he didn't even try, almost like he just gave a random ID of him when Q asked him for an anthem :+

I don't like Ran-D since a few years but still had hope cause G4H was quite good recently, looks like it's all thanks to Adaro lol. Which makes me wonder why the anthem wasn't given to him instead (could have been insane for sure) :rofl:

I never thought in a million years that there could be a worse anthem than Immortal back in 2013 :rofl: :rofl:

If this track wasn't labelled as the Qlimax anthem then it would be an okay track, not great but just okay.

The vibe doesnt fit Qlimax at all, the melody just feels recycled like all of Ran-D's melodies from the past 2 years, Psyko Punkz, Atmozfears, Coone, Wildstylez and even B-Front got the vibe of Qlimax right. Dark, mysterious energy. The pitch change in the anti-climax is unnecessary and just makes it feel like a raw track and that BPM change, don't even get me started about that. What an absolute joke.

with Ceero on this except it's not the pitch change but the silly kickrolls and totally unnecessary kick changes

first climax is pretty much what I expected it to sound like

"Even b-front" lmfao listing the person who fits the qlimax vibe most to begin with and had the darkest anthem in years. All anthems have been forgettable imo past 5-6 years, with the exception of 2017 and 2019.

Not surprised that this is complete garbage. Basic Ran-D track i wouldn't listen to more than once in my life.

Davonez:A Great Ran-D Track but only a ok qlimax Anthem. i expected more for the best indoor event (6)


D-Jess:Well for me, his anthem reflects perfectly what Ran-D do since now 4 years : Not bad, but defintely not incredible.


SarahKerrigan:Decent anthem, great partytrack just wish that bpmswitch was thrown in the bin. But definitely not a bad anthem imo!



Agreed to everything :one:

I dunno why we need a hardcore-ish part in every track now and I personally don't like most of the times :sick:

I think the track is great and nicely produced. For it to fit Qlimax definately depends on other artists sets and stage and everything. If the atmosphere in the event is not dark & mysterious, the anthem will fit. Imo tracks "change" in the event and it might be better than people first think. I also might be wrong but that's my opinnion and people can disagree with that.

Personally I would like to hear mysterious Qlimax anthem and the reason for that is that we are so used for that theme. Can't imagine different vibe in Qlimax other than mysterious and dark. That also might change in the future, who knows. I would prefer it not to change but the consumers decide what they want and Q-Dance will provide.

Producing a Qlimax anthem is huge and I can only imagine the pressure Ran-D must have. He definately has put all his effort in to this and this is the outcome. People love it or hate it. I personally have never quite liked Ran-D's tracks anyway but that doesn't mean that I don't respect his productions or anything. It's all about personal taste in music.

I hope he is happy with the track and people will enjoy it in the event. Anyway, glad that we even got an anthem.

I have spoken :rofl:

For me, this feels like a side project, or the little brother to 'MGFY'.

Also it embodies everything I dislike post-2019 hardstyle:
  1. too much singing/talk
  2. too many kickrolls and kick changes
  3. tempo change in last quarter of the track mimicking HC/FC/Uptempo

Yet another Qlimax anthem that made solely for the anthem-show and will be forgotten in January already

Nonetheless, happy for Ran-d to finally getting his chance , and I'm sure we will hear more of the singer

In short, the track is rather generic but I really dig the vocals. Can't wait to hear Charlotte live at Qlimax :dance:

And yeah, kick and tempo changes are unecessary.

bit plain :(

Anthems have been trash for years though in the majority.

I have to agree, it's better than Immortal but it feels very rushed, and following the same Ran-D formula since 2016 :+

Just give Bass Modulators or Sephyx the chance for the next year anthem

It doesn't have the dark Qlimax feel, but it's still an excellent track. Ran-D of the past few years is better than he's ever been. That being said, I would have preferred if he branched out a little bit; it does sound more like a regular track than a deliberately made Qlimax anthem. Maybe Q-Dance wanted it done on short notice.
