Tiredness, boredom and lots of caffeine combined to create this weird thing.

Lots of shortcuts taken. Lots of crappy cuts. Oh well. Enjoy. Weird filter over the guitar too, eh? If you think you know what it is, leave a comment lol

There is a 9/5 riff and a 11/3 riff in here, try to find them :D

Reviews away!

To be honest, even though you don't appear to be enthusiastic about this submission, I honestly like this piece for what it is. There are errors and mistakes present, but the good here outweighs the bad in my opinion.

Your guitars are fine, even though there appears to be the same guitar played on two tracks panned to left and right. The form of this method is a little thin since there's only one guitar and just drums, but then that allows more room for them to do interesting things.

You had a good amount of polyrythmic transitions here. Not really much remained the same, so it avoided static tendencies. For example, the intro riff sounded like Slipknot, but then you ran into a slick groove.

After that, the pause and cymbal swell added some tension to see what was going to appear next, I liked that. Fill. Then there was a running rhythmic pattern that was really dissonant, but conjunct. It's weird. I mean, your song has weird everything.

The section that sped up was cool to me, but a lot of these sections don't last long though.

I'm glad the drums can keep up, I'm not completely sure where all the components of the drums are going and where they are, they get a little lost, but there's able to be found. Maybe they could have done with some more EQing in my opinion?

Anyway, you could really develop this into something to work with.

Oh, and I did hear that phrase with another guitar, so I guess there's another track of guitar in here. That section it played was really short too.

I guess what I'm trying to say I like this all here, weird time signatures, riffs, it works as weird as it is. By the way, I have no idea where the 9/5 riff and 11/3 are, you got me beat there. O_o

Hey man, thanks for your honest review! I'm actually considering re-working this song and having the vocalist in my band do some screams over it, he really loved it when he heard it for some reason.

And yeah, the Bass in this song is just my guitar with all the treble and mids EQ'd out, it was a slack way to do it but I didn't want to record a whole other bass track hahaha.

There is actually 3 guitars in this song. The left and right channel are both individual guitars and the middle channel is the short lead.

Thanks for the review and opinion! It helps a lot more then you'd imagine and I'll definitely be taking all this into consideration if I rework it and for future songs!

Cheers!
