Music Video: Coming Soon!


Nothing too special for this one. Something pretty monotone, but for good reason. The project I've been working on with all my songs being labeled as "boss battle themes" has extended to being a full fake video game with its own lore. It's even become its own album I'm working on with a few friends. This tune, with its rather unimaginative title, is an area theme, as opposed to a boss battle theme. By design, it was supposed to be something to serve well as background music, hence its monotone nature, being almost entirely held on an E chord.

This actually came about after a friend gave me some feedback on past mixes, and said I had a 150 Hz build-up and that they were pretty muddy. After having cut it out and playing him another mix a week later, he noted that the build-up had gone away, and that I had gotten it cleaner than ever. So, that's kinda cool. Note to all aspiring musicians out there: depending on the kind of music you make, make sure you don't have too much 150 Hz build-up.

I also made this after purchasing my first new electric guitar since 2019, the Sterling JP60 Stealth. This is actually the internet debut of it as well, since the first cover I'm releasing on my YouTube page with it won't be coming out until the end of this month. This was largely to test the guitar with both leads and rhythm guitars, and it seemed to handle both tones pretty well. I've had it since late July, so I've had time to decide if I liked it or not, and it's definitely safe to say I like it a lot. I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for listening! I'd love to hear what you guys have to say about this in the comments. Be sure to let me know! :)

Really great. I love the part at 1:15!

Really loving the tone on that lead guitar parts man. So crisp. Great track overall too!

I genuniely think you have established something with your guitars here. That is to say, you were already quite good, but this song had more in it than your others. Keep up the greatness!

Thank you very much! I've been working on filling in space effectively, so I'm very glad to know it's working!
