This song was inspired by 1 Corinthians 15:12-19. It's kind of different from everything else I've done, but still quite obviously me. Big thanks to Jesus, who helps me make all my music!

Lyrics:

If I can't glorify Your name
what good's the sun across my face?
If I get up and I start to try
to take this world my own I know that I'd
die trying, I'd die twice
On my own, I'm no good without you.
I need you I know

My faith is worthless without Your truth x2

(Selah)

1 Corinthians 15:12-19

But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is worthless, and so is your faith.

My faith is worthless without Your truth x2

Well, I'm gonna put aside my hate toward religions, no offense ! X)

Melodies :
Melodies are very simple, and this is great. It totally suits the overall mood of the track. I don't have much to say, the strings' melodies are just really nice and the synthesizer from 0:00 to 0:22 or from 1:04 to the end of the track is awesome. =3
I don't really want to talk about the lyrics because my philosophy is pretty anti-religion, and it wouldn't be fair for you.

Instruments :
The instrumentalisation is awesome too ! That synthesizer and strings I was talking about are perfect. So are the drums. I particularly love that weird sound effect on the right channel all along the track ! The climaxes arrangement (1:04 and 2:30) are pretty orgasmic. Your voice mixing suits the track's mood, but it's maybe a bit "exaggerated" at 0:49. It's like you wanted to scare me (like ghosts' "booohs"). It's just at this moment, but it's so enormous that I had to remove half a star. On a good note, I think 2:09 was genius ! Adding an entire speech and turning it into music aaaah my mind is melting...

Personality :
Well, honestly, what can I say about personality ? X)
It's really unique, and I can see (or hear) you wanted to give it that unique aspect. The synthesizer (the one), the "click-click" on the right channel or the speech are just too good. *_*

Melodies : 2/2
Instruments : 1,5/2
Personality : 1/1

It's unusual that I give a so positive review, but this was really nice. I love artists who put their personality into their tracks. Keep it on ! <3


Rahmemhotep responds:

On 0:49 - I came from a heavy metal background and now I make chill/lounge/downtempo. This part for me in my music is sort of like (for instance) if this was a metal song, 0:49 would be a false chord or fry scream, but instead here we have a loud whisper. It's just how I do. Originally, I sang that in a descending line like the left pan synth at 1:55, but I thought it just didn't sound right. The way I have it now is more like me.

Yeah, I'm not really trying to be original. I just kind of put things together that sound good to me. I think that's how a lot of artists are anyways. I used to try to sound like other people, but that doesn't really work as well.

Thanks for the review!
