Wrote and recorded this tonight and thought I'd stick it up for some crits etc.

It's pretty rough and the verse lyrics are nonsensical place-holders but that's the norm for me!

For those who like to read along

Verse 1:
This one's got blood on his ear
That one, full of fear
I'm just driftin'

Verse 2:
This one's got blood on his ear
That one, full of fear
I'm just driftin'

Pre-Chorus/Chorus 1:
Sittin' here on my own
Sittin' on my throne
Just waiting for the madness
Waiting for the madness to flow

Verse 3:
This one's got blood on his ear
That one, full of fear
I'm just driftin'

Pre-Chorus/Chorus 2:
Sittin' here on my own
Sittin' on my throne
Just waiting for the madness
Waiting for the madness to flow
Just waiting for the madness
Waiting for the madness to flow

This got me from the first second

Why not a 10? Because I feel there could be a bit of EQ work here and there. How about a bit of slight distortion added into the vocals at times? I mean very slightly.. nothing to make it sound robotic etc but just enough to convey madness.

I truly love this track. The lyrics are fantastic and it speaks realms to me. This is the sort of track that I'd hear on an album and it'd make me instantly want to buy it without listening to the rest of the songs.

Great vocals
Great guitar
I like that subtle instrumentation in the background .. the flutey organ sound..
I think perhaps pizzicatto strings could be added to this at some point. You could get some interesting percussive melodies blended in with that. Just a possibility, that's all :) I think it would help with re playability, to add subtle extra melodies and rhythms here and there so that the listener can latch onto something different each time.. you have so much room to work with here, i.e the idea of madness.. you can add ANYTHING with that sort of theme.

Anywho
Wonderful work. As a WIP it's fantastic.

Let's be honest, you didn't give me a 10 because you're a fascist! ;)

Seriously tho, thanks very much for the high praise and expecially for the suggestions.Suggestions are gooooood

I'll give the strings and extra melodies a go and will definitely look into upping the madness stakes. I instantly thought of adding some TV static type sounds here and there to simulate a break in reality. May mess about with some time stretching as well.

Thanks for the great review. Hopefully you'll like the next version even more

Simplicity is Prime!

i havent heard a song like this in ages on NG. i love the guitars' simple rhythm and chords,as well as the whole feel of the song,except near the end.i also like the lyrics,that make no sense at all,just add to the feel of the song,and the title of the song itself.

i dont like the voice though. if there are 2 people singing,one person might be out of tune,and this definitely shows in the Pre/Chorus,in the first line,it sounds like one of you squeaked. keep it to one vocalist if you guys cant keep in tune together.

overall,this song is very different to the rest of the songs on newgrounds,and it feels good to review a song that reminds me of bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Metallica.great job!

I've been debating whether to go with Beck-style nonsensical lyrics or just normal vague nonsensical lyrics and so far at least I've gone for the latter. At some point I'll upload a newer version.

The vocals are doubletracked so it's just me but, yeah, it's not the best doubletracking I've ever done. I don't hear a squeak but they're definitely not entirely in tune. I didn't have lyrics so got lazy I suppose.

Cheers for the review

Good song

Very good song. Even with the nonsensical lyrics.

The guitar sounds very nice. It plays some simple chords, but "simple" is just what fits best here. Together with the sometimes too quiet vocals it creates a very dense atmosphere.

I also like the various effects you put into this, like the echo on the voice and the backwards-like guitar we can hear after the chorus.

Only thing that bothers me is that the vocals are too quiet. I know, the lyrics are supposed to be nonsensical, but it's quite hard to make them out right now. So yeah, turn up the volume of the voice. ^^

Haha, the song now has proper lyrics ...but they're still quite nonsensical!

I'll make sure to up the vocals when I finish it

Cheers for the review. Glad you liked it.

Chills

Well, this is something I'd never expect to hear on Newgrounds. A proper, relaxed track of this sort. Gives me the chills.

The guitar is really simple, simple chords and structure is really nice and simple, which I'd say goes very well with the slowed down and calmed style of the track. I like your use of the flute and piano. Your voice is soothing, which feels sort of weird with these lyrics. Lyrics: Well written, a bit repetitive, but carries a pretty strong message, that fits the song.

You did very well in varying the track throughout, and I love the overdub and echo on the vocals. Really adds to the atmosphere.

Nice track, love it. The flutes actually somewhat reminded me of the flutes in The Beatles' Strawberry Fields Forever. Always a good thing.

Cheers, man. I appreciate that.

The verse lyrics have been written properly now so therey're not repetitive.

The 'Strawberry fields' flute is from a great little plugin called Meltron. Couldn't live without it!

Thanks for the review
