I've had this one in my arsenal for years. But I wanted to re-record it and make it better quality. I have a version already recorded with vocals and I'll be releasing it soon. I think this is one of my better songs and I hope you like it!


The song is about how life seems to be in a perpetual state of chaos and disorder. A vicious cycle if you will.


Version with vocals can be found here

Lyrics:


Sit back and watch it break

Til the end of time

See what will never change

It’s been bled dry


Until the day,

It’s ripped away

From the hands of fate

And the clock rewinds…


And it starts again

The burden through time

It leads to an end

Where we always die


Is there no escape?

No place left to hide?

Yea!


Kingdom come,

Will never be the same

As it once was,

It’s fallen away

 

Kingdom come,

A war from yesterday

That can’t be won

Minds bent, led astray

 

So we fight

For another day

Prepared to die

An honored way


Can we turn the tides

And protect our names

Will we find the flame

Withering away


But there’s no escape!

No place left to hide!

Yea!


Kingdom come,

Will never be the same

As it once was,

It’s fallen away

 

Kingdom come,

A war from yesterday

That can’t be won

Minds bent, led astray


Yea we defy

Yea we defy

Defy!

Laws unjustified!

 

Kingdom come,

Will never be the same

As it once was,

It’s fallen away

 

Kingdom come,

A war from yesterday

That can’t be won

Minds bent, led astray

 

Will never be the same

It’s fallen away

A war from yesterday

Minds bent, led astray

Great riffs, my dude!
Guitars sound awesome! Great tone with keeping the clarity in the chords. I would throw a gate on the input of the guitar. (or if you have one on there, I would tighten it up so it acts faster or at a higher threshold) The section at 0:45 has some brief rests, and the gate will help clean up the leftover string vibration when you palm mute. (or left hand mute, but it sounds like a palm mute to my ear) This will make that next chord sound a little more punchy when you slam it. I recommend a gate on the bass guitar, too, so that it works in tandem with the guitars.
I would use less reverb on the drums, but that's just personal preference. They sound like live drums from an arena show, kind of like they are behind everything else. Drums sound good, nonetheless. They fit right in the mix and have beef but clarity, too!
In terms of composition, the sections are all interesting and have good transitions! My only complaint is that they are all at the same dynamic level. Everything is slamming the whole time, so it kind of takes away from how slamming it is. There's nothing to contrast the slamming. Even just a short quiet section, or a quiet measure to transition into a section would help accentuate the intensity of the whole song.
Overall, great job! Can't wait to hear the vocal version! Sounds pretty kickass already!

This might be the most well thought out, helpful review I've ever gotten! Thank you so much. I thought about adding a quieter clean guitar part that would build back up, but honestly nothing I wrote at the time seemed to fit properly. I really appreciate you listening and taking the time to review everything! Means alot! \m/

i like how you put the heavy in heavy metal

bipolarmunkey responds:

Thank you so much!! \m/

It sunds so good but even when you provide the lyrics...I waited for a singer. But this still gets my 5s. Loved the drums

bipolarmunkey responds:

I'm going to release the vocal version next week! :D

Guitars sound alot easier on the ears on this one, I really dig the drums on the verses too

bipolarmunkey responds:

The drums are honestly my favorite part on this one. They were alot of fun to do

Sad I'm not completely on-board. Great song nonetheless.

bipolarmunkey responds:

Hey, I appreciate your honest feedback! And thank you for listening!
