I like what you're going for here. The intense hard rock with foreboding swells of synths in the background. The rhythmic element, as a whole, I can best describe as chaotic; that works very well in this competition. You clearly depict what it would be like to be engaged with zombies in an all-out war. I am especially thinking about the part from 1:08-1:30ish at this point.

While I liked the synths a good deal, I thought that they could have evolved a little more towards the end of the song. I realize they were intended for layering and padding and what have you, but if you could somehow change their timbre with a filter or something toward the end, then the song would have much more color. I guess what I'm getting at is the song didn't really go anywhere in the last minute, and I feel like a synth switch could change the mood and make the song more complete. I liked the abrupt ending.

Overall, this was one of best sounding submissions. The dark overtones and chaos drums gave this song a sinister feeling, but there was nothing that screamed zombie out at me. In the end, the slightly above average production and the lack of a real zombie theme kept this song from reaching the very top of the list, but it still had enough merits to do well in the competition. Good way to kick off the competition, indeed.

My score: 8.0

Great piece, I really feel the urgency and distress of the zombie apocalypse. However the mix isn't the best and there's always some high pitch resonance that is rather distracting so you lose some points there. I think it's a pretty groovy song, great submission.

I enjoyed the sound effects used in this song, they created a windy and mysterious atmosphere. But I did not think the drum beat was playing on tempo or the melody was playing at different times than the beat, it was very hard to decipher what was going on with that melody. Such a chaotic approach to music does paint a hostile and evil sounding picture. So in that regard, you kept to the criteria of the contest well. I just don't feel that this illustrated every aspect of what the contest was asking you to do.
Overall 6.0

Well I'm gonna admit right off the bat.. you got some peaking issues going on.. but I do like it when the guitars pop in.. gives me sorta that resident evil desert feeling.. percussion is nice and well centered. I do feel that industrial is a good approach to this contest - the wailing noise in the bg is a nice touch for this as well :)

like the guy below me said - gritty - well done!

9/10

good!

it would sound better if you play it with real drums, or at least if you power up a little, but its very nice! nice effects you put at background! add suspense. well done!

Thanks very much, appreciate it. Sadly I don't have the facility to record real drums, but I agree that it would sound better! Thanks again!
