Poisoned Testing Facility (Album Demo Track)

As some people are curious about the album, I have decided to upload one of the racks in it's pre-mastered state for you all to listen to. If you want any more news on the album itself as well as cover art, please check my news post here: http://lich.newgrounds.com/news/post/949232

==================
Abducted, Wired, you're stuck in the machine
Part of experiments you can't of forseen
Spitting, Fighting, you can't escape
We'll slice you up, for it's your fate.

The vials of poison are glowing green,
Potent enough, for your life to demean.
Raised in the tubes above our heads,
For if it leaks, we'll surely end up dead.

The pressure is rising, it is too much.
The toxic cauldron is compromised.
Seeping out it's deadly to touch.
Your fate has been finalised.

Run for your lives, abandon your pride.
The scientists escaped while you're still tied up.
Stuck underground, your screams the only sound.
The poison hits you while you're all locked up.
Poison is seeping throughout your bloodstream.
Your flesh is melting, forever it seeps.
Man-made product, Man-made death.
Slowly eroding until there's nothing left.

It seeps through the darkness, blocking the way.
Why was this poison ever made?
The testing came back, but it's buried beneath.
The dying complex to remain unseen

Bound by the straps, you're ready to receive.
A sample of this antidote, what will it achieve?
Inserted into skin, it crawls through your veins
Attaching itself, flooding the brain.

Red Alert, abandon your posts.
For a deadly poison has escaped.
Run far away and ignore your oath.
To save our subjects, we've kidnapped and shaped.

Run for your lives, abandon your pride.
The scientists escaped while you're still tied up.
Stuck underground, your screams the only sound.
The poison hits you while you're all locked up.
Poison is seeping throughout your bloodstream.
Your flesh is melting, forever it seeps.
Man-made product, Man-made death.
Slowly eroding until there's nothing left.

It seeps through the darkness, blocking the way.
Why was this poison ever made?
The testing came back, but it's buried beneath.
The dying complex to remain unseen.

Why have you left me here?
Why have you left me to die?
This poison is dripping upon my chest.
It seeps through my flesh, my death has manifest.

I'm dying, I'm dying,
Left alone to succumb to pain.
I'm dying, I'm dying.
Crawling to the light, locked away.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I like the dark mood, melodies, and sound design. It has little sense of progression before about 45 seconds in, but in the context of a longer piece like this I suppose that’s not atypical. I thought the drums were not as sharp or prominent in the mix as they could’ve been. Instead of enhancing the drama here, they don’t add a lot to the piece. I enjoyed the structural relief you offered at 1:47. The lyrics are enjoyable, but admittedly I would have no clue what they were if they weren’t pasted in the author’s comments. Overall, the mixing and mastering are solid. You’re adding and stripping away elements occasionally, but overall I still would like to see a little more variation in the melodic content. That said, I appreciated that your vocal phrases were subdivided into two, connected with a subtle transition at 4:40 (and other places). I also liked that the instrumentals maintained a sort of melancholy vibe while the vocals solely seemed emotional and desperate. The texture is full throughout, and the atmosphere of the piece is fantastic. Very solid work overall, Lich! Keep up the good work. ;)

9/10


Lich responds:

The final version I have ready for the album has been mixed and mastered again from the ground up (crisper, smoother low end and the vocal timings fixed) and it does eliminate the weak drum issue in this upload ;)

I like, it's too dark :
-sounds electro are dark
-words are dark
-voice is ultra dark (you could sing in the metal style even if the voice is modified)
..........
5/5
Keep it.
