En Garde!

Penultimate track from Creature Of Habit in which we find our protagonist brooding over the realization of the previous track, and facing down the Creature.

Whether the two voices represent a struggle with an outer or inner demon is up to the listener. At the end, we hear the Creature sulking away, soundly defeated if not vanquished. I employed the seldom-heard and highly dissonant flatted ninth interval in the main motif of this piece to convey tension and conflict. SFX via freesound.org.

Love the stabs at 1:20! And the changeup halfway through is killer. Some very Keith Emerson-esque orchestral-style synth leads throughout. A suitably epic piece of program music! Big fan of this one for sure.
