Temporarily like Hector
Just for once, I wish Hector would get to win : >

There's a tenseness to your piece that suggests a battle is taking place.

There's a lot to like in this pieces. I like how you start off with the slow-paced (but relentless) deep synth and then jump-start things by doubling the tempo of the higher-pitched synth. The piano is a nice shift, and it adds a dimensional sense of complexity. At the end, when you think perhaps you've heard it all, the groove kicks into a higher gear yet - a nice ending to a taut production.

Good Stuff
Minor ... really minor suggestions. Bring the key change in earlier after
the bridge. Maybe ... just maybe a build in the drum track at about the
same place. Other than that I think it is really cool with good choice of
"voices"

Achilles sux!
Hektor owns! I agree completely. This was a pretty neat track dude. A classical melody layered over a dance beat. Very cool.

As for feedback, maybe you could spruce it up a bit by adding some more accents and sounds to augment the piece. Other than that I think you're good to go, thanks for sharing this!

Wow!
Epic theme! EPIC SOUND! This grabbed me from the get-go and did not
let go. Relentless---just like Achilles and Hektor. Powerful playing. Great
production. Kudos n' S'mores!

Be well!

Nice 8-bit theater
Sounds like the epic Greek battle bottled up in a video game... you
definitely get the adrenaline pumping with the fast beat. Not sure if the
piano fit in there with the other synthy instruments, though, unless that
was the classy Hector against the blippy Achilles. And I agree, Achilles
was a wuss :-) Fun melody and counterpoint, nice!
ttfn,

the piano doesnt represent hector but rather just a building momentum in
the battle. also it is a break and a softer timbre.

Like the piano
I like the piano and there is one sound inbetween that makes me nervous.
But Achilles and Hector should be also a bit nervouse about there
situation.

titanic duel...
I dig the manic vibrancy of this song, it has the energetic feel of a battle,
except that i wished there were stronger percussions here, like big drums
or gongs or something grand and booming to accentuate the epic drama
of a titanic battle. The piano playing is awesome, though! The thin
synthesized sound can be replaced with something more full-sounding,
or maybe just add on top of that.

Will you remix this with the above suggested percussions? I bet you it will
sound huge! A great soundbed layer has been laid, you just need to
embellish it to add drama!

Nice bit of techno Danny - certainly surprised by those low scores.
Aggressive - like the piano - definite video game feel to this.

What a Frenzy !
had my head bopping all over the place .. felt like I was trapped in a giant gameboy console and someone else had the controls .... kewl tune ... I'll let my 11 year old son listen to it .. see what he thinks .... the concensus is in .. he says its KEWL ... he said it sounds like a "stealthy shooting game like Minority Report - it's a cop game - where the cop gets framed for armed robbery or the murder of somebody or something - kind of like a good cop / bad cop type of game" ... his words exactly.

Never liked Achilles myself.
There can't be much techno out there based on Greek myths. Actually I'm curious whether you started with this title and then wrote the piece, or the other way around. Either way I enjoyed it a lot. You have a good sense of when to finish up a section and move on before it becomes repetitive, so the piece stays fresh all the way through.
