A fun little experiment!
I think this would be a great track for boss battle, hence the name "To The Death"...ooor it could go with an intense side scrolling shooter! ;3 (I would touch it up if someone wants it)
looking for something more peaceful? clicky clicky

I am not sure how to feel about this

Okay let me start off with the good.

After :30 there's obviously some talent going on. That bass groove really got me going. But most of the song I wasn't digging too much.

But the beginning did not start off well to me, that first synth was very ugly especially mixed with that really mid heavy kick. It's like that melody is almost a really good dark synth melody but i don't know its too random? I think this guy might help, he made a video specifically about making melodies in a song http://warbeats.com/Tutorials/Music-Theory?topic=7008&name=Making-Musical-Phrases#view (the song itself isn't trying to be good its just an example).

The thing I think that didn't help me was that the mixing was a little muddy. If you had all of this but it was a bit more competently mixed I would've dug it more just for that production value factor, but the bass is way too muddy (although most of the bass parts were written pretty good).

But keep making music man you obviously have talent!

Thanks for the feedback!
ya it was a couple hr experiment I did yesterday mixing diminished 7th chord with an octatonic scale. I can be difficult work with that kind of harmonic language because the nature of the dissonance it to be muddy (especially when dealing with saw waves XD)

Thanks for the video, he does cover some basic music theory principles....I was just stepping outside some of the norms we hear everyday in popular music (I teach music for a living and I get bored of major and minor scales....). The melody is also mix metered, the rhythm stay in 4/4 and the melody goes in and out of 4 and 3 (nothing to crazy). Melody's that are octatonic AND mix metered tend to sound random to a lot of people (except the person who wrote it XD)
Thanks for the comment! Keep them coming
always like to hear opinions!
