Woot! Weekly Tops list achieved! Thanks guys!

Was feeling in the mood to create a metal ballad of sorts... Actually, that's a lie, I started out writing a classical piece, and decided I wanted to throw a chugging guitar on top of it instead of a flute or violin... And this is what came out.

Also, I'm sure someone is gonna complain that this isn't metal. Well, suck it up buttercup, it's got a chugging guitar in it, to me, that makes it a metal ballad, we don't have a genre listing for that, so I put it in the closest possible genre, which happens to be Heavy Metal.

Programs/VSTs used:
FL Studio
Miroslav Philharmonik



Rated 5 / 5 stars


you have the highest score/rating (4.76) out of any song i've seen and or listened too.. and you deserve it as well ;) and i agree with Aigis.. it is relaxing to listen to on a loop.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

And yet I've had songs with a higher score... My song "A Taste of..." was #1 on the site for a while hovering around the 4.9 range before it got bombed into oblivion.

And I'm glad you enjoyed it, thanks for the review!

Awesome song and very relaxing to listen to. I wanted to use it on a video on youtube. What would I have to put to make sure that it is not copyrighted and that all credit goes to you?

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

As long as it's non-profit and you give me credit (Preferably including a link to my NewGrounds profile), go right ahead and use it.

You wouldn't be the first to use my stuff in a youtube video, you would however be one of the first to actually ask before doing so, so for that I thank you!

Soothing metal

I liked how the piano at the start kind of relaxes and gets you into the feel of being in a dream and very relaxed. You just feel as if even though bad things tend to happen that everything will be alright soon after all. The guitar sounds pretty soft here as it plays some heavy chords that kind of make you think something chaotic was happening in your dream that you were having to fight against for some reason.

The bass is great and gives the guitar and drums a backing beat as the beat moves on. Towards the end I could see some kind of fight being stopped by some giant being or something of that nature. The drums play a very simple rhythm that just gives the feel of everything is going to be alright.

Overall, this is a soothing metal piece.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

There actually isn't any bass in this song at all, my guitar tone simply has some bass heavy undertones. I was debating putting bass in it, but I didn't want to over-complicate the song and make it feel too active... Being a more laid back tune and all.
Same with the drums, I was thinking of spicing it up to give a little more of a metal feel... but again, didn't want to over-complicate or make it too active.

Glad you like it though, thanks for the review.

I enjoyed this.

I listened to this a few times on a loop. It is relaxing to listen to.

It reminds me of Mogwai, in a good way.

People find this review helpful!

Never heard of them, but I'll take it as a compliment.

Good to hear you enjoyed it!

A beautiful mix of guitar and piano

This song really gets to me, and is fit to be called a metal ballad.

But it needs to be longer. You have a ton of potential, and you shouldn't let it go to waste.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

That's why I called it P.1 (As in: Part One), I fully intend to extend this in the form of multiple parts... I may even go as far to create an albums worth of content out of this style of music... We'll see though, I still have 2 other albums I'm supposed to be working on as well.

But I'm glad you enjoyed it!
