And here I am to bring you guys another sneak peek of some more of my upcoming album, "To The End Of The World".

This is the second of the 2 new metal tracks that will be on the album (The first being Dream (Part Two)).

This one is still a work in progress, and there is still a lot to be done, but I figured I'd give you guys a peek at the progress so far. Let me know what you think!

Programs/VSTs:
Reaper
EZDrummer (Drumkit From Hell)
Miroslav Philharmonik

I don't think ez drummer is the problem. The eq is off a little. the kick isn't deep enough, and the cymbals cut off prematurely. I would definitely find a different instrument for the brass, because it doesn't seem to fit. It sounds like a french horn, but it's way to low, and it sounds like it's trying too hard to be the bass.

For the official release (on the bandcamp page):

The drums are really quiet. The brass is still a bit out of place, and the strings began to falter at around 2 minutes. The guitars are great, though, and that piano at the end was simply beautiful. A really sweet track, with a few mastering issues. ^^


Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Mixing/mastering is a constant struggle for me, I will admit, it's the biggest area I'm trying to improve in right now.

Thanks for the review.

This tune has potential.

EZDrummer does sound like it is most definitely the "Drumkit From Hell", because it doesn't sound very good next to all the other instruments playing. It sounds like it was very lazily engineered, namely the drum rolling.

My advice would be to use drumkit soundfonts. I have a thread devoted to them in the audio forum.
The orchestra and guitars sound okay, though I think the orchestra could use a little more presence in the mix. I think a bass guitar of sorts could help complement/complete this tune as well.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I don't get why everyone hates EZDrummer so much, I like it, but I'll look into soundfonts anyways.

As I've mentioned before, I still struggle a bit with leveling everything out just right, between when this was posted and when I released the full song on the album, I did do a little bit of tweaking though, which hopefully addressed the issue.

And there is a bass in the finished song, using a synth instead of a guitar however because my bass guitar doesn't like being tuned down, and it needs new strings and I'm too cheap (and broke) to go buy some.

Glad you like it though!

The composition is beautiful, well thought out, and the very dynamic. I have found that sometimes, our technology limits us. When I hear this song, I am forced to think of its potential, but when I am forced to hear it, I am amazed, and mystified.

You are a really creative fella, and am proud to have worked with such a musician.
