Originally started this many years ago. A couple months back I decided to start it back up and finish it. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.
This is nothing short of spectacular. Sounds like Pink Floyd, but more modern and with a little less ego (no drawn-out solos).
You must know your shit. Your athmosphere building skills are sick. That guitar and their effects are so sick! and the melodies were amazing (that instrument i cannot name that starts @ 0:25 is what i mean.) You use effects the correct way, none of that show off lots of fade in and outs effect. This feels like it has structure and it does. That one or two second like breaks and the drums kicking in is a technique that fits in with this composition. God damn its sick! who are your influences in music? dude not kidding here you have an amazing composition. 5/5.
Thanks man! This track is one of my personal favorites. I don't what possessed me when I wrote it, but I wish I could match it. My influences in music? Well, I listen to just about every style. Rock (Led Zeppelin, Yes, Smashing Pumpkins, Elliott Smith), Metal (Tool, The Mars Volta, Deftones), Classical (Mozart, Bach, Liszt), Jazz (Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis, and most of all Vince Gauraldi), Electronic (NIN, Crystal Casltes, Aphex Twin, Brian Eno) and thats just the really abreviated list. There are so many great artists out there in every genre. As far as direct influences, I dunno. I often find myself trying to put a Nine Inch Nails feel into some of my darker or more industrial pieces. Eno also directly inspired a few of my songs. Since I generally focus on soundtrack stuff I could probably credit some game music composers like Koji Kondo, Nobou Uematsu, Grant Kirkhope, and others. I also did an album called Looking Out From the Inside that was pretty directly inspired by post rock groups like Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, and Godspeed, aswell as Eno. As for this piece in particular, I really don't know who to credit as inspiration for this. I originally recorded a small part of this when I was around 17 years old. At the time I was obsessed with 90s rock like The Pumpkins, Nirvana, and The Pixies, though I don't really hear a lot of them in this work. About a year ago I ran across that original recording and decided to expand on it. This was the result. I'm real glad you liked it and thanks for the review!
