This is a new band called Awesome Manipulator Insiders of Music, AMIOM for short. Band members are Gede and Kikennaime. This is one awesome song for you. If you liked it, check our vocal version. And be sure to review and vote. :)

Overpowered mix and rather uninvolving. The melodies seem to go from A to Z within any kind of connection. The clap is pretty shitty as well. I'd say this is a pretty odd composition which doesn't make me fall in love with it or fall love in any way. The second half is better but the damage is already done and we're going forward in odd-land. From 2:15, it was pretty sweet though, if the song would have been built around a better progression, it could have worked a lot better. The ending doesn't save the song. Great effort though.
Thanks for the review. But now I don't know what to think about the clap. :/
I like your critisism even if I don't be exactly in same opinion. :)
The melodies have some kind of connection to me, for instance. For response I will say the band Queen. How about them? :D
aand we come to the dark horse of the contest - I considered you despite your bad peakish mastering just because of how engaging i feel this piece is. It has good progression, love those claps - also love the full stuttery feeling of this piece - kinda has an arace space game feeling to it - and I have heard that synth before in some famous song that I cannot place my finger on. Those crystally sound fx during your mid area are awesome - both the fx and the accompanying melodybell lead :)
it can be a bit overwhelming on it's own though - you gotta work on reining your levels in dude - this is no longer 2004, with lack of ram used as an excuse for improper mastering, or lack thereof. Hahaha the robotic "are you ready" wasa nice tough - still love that melodybell though.
Oops.. I'm going to master this a little better :)
Nice sub bass at the beginning, the pad is pleasant. The mix is pretty good overall, you could have brought the hi-hats down a tiny bit. Maybe applied a bit less compression, it gets kinda distracting at some points. I think at 1:28ish, the piece really shines when there's quite a bit of layering of sounds. It's not boring there, there's plenty going on to keep my attention. I like the instrumentation in general, and the bass at 2:16 really caught my attention: nice raspyness. The bells really made me happy too. Ooh, and I think that was a key change at "Are you ready?" Wait, then it ended? That was kinda short lived.
7/10 for continuity
9/10 for composition
8/10 for catchiness
Overall, a great piece. I like how there's pretty much constantly something going on. However, the way that it just jumps into the gated pad thing at 1:02 is kinda distracting. Then it goes away. Pretty catchy, just some parts kinda turn me away.

Actually, I wanted to do a little longer song than this, but.. Kikennaime and me then figured that we want to make a song that you want to listen again when you have listened to this.
I'm newbie in compression, but I have learned a little about it. I will compress a little less in AMIOM's and my future songs. :)
I think you're right about hihats, but my problem was first that drums were a little muffled in my old songs so I'm glad they are now a little louder.
I wanted to make that 2:16 part a little clean vs dirty thing.. :)
In 1:02 I little cutted bass to make a little weird styled part there to make you clear that this doesn't repeat itself all the time.
