 Ancient civilizations represent many things about life as we know it today: power, beauty, intelligence, and ambition. This piece reflects all of these qualities, from the driving force of the ancient armies, to the elegance of ancient architecture. 
       Rise of the Ancients opens with a driving feel under a mysterious melody. As it slowly introduces parts, the piece moves into some powerful chords, before introducing the main melody at measure 11. The opening feel returns at measure 19 and also introudces a counter melody. The melodies should be balanced, as they interact with each other, and both should not be overpowered by the strong accompaniment.
