Erebus (NGUAC 2022 KO Round)

Author Comments

This is my entry for NGUAC 2022, an orchestral DnB track by the name of Erebus. I'd envisioned this track as a theme of sorts for... if I'm being frank, one figure among a few that I might describe as a nightmare made real. This particular track doesn't quite depict that character's story, and so I'll revisit the concept at some point in the future to do this, but in the meantime... I can't quite call it a boss theme for the character, but think something along those lines, I suppose.

Track info/stats:

  • Key: F minor, Bb minor
  • BPM: 174
  • Work time: 14 hrs 24 mins
  • VSTs used: FLEX, Sylenth1, Kontakt Player,
  • Sample libraries used: Cymatics, JRR Sounds

A few thoughts:
Pretty good! Id say this is right middle of the line for your 2022 discography. I like the main melody and it does a really good job at setting up this story like structure, the offdrops especially
A few complaints though:
1: The drums. Lots of weird choices here, specifically the snare, which is almost as weak as my social life, and the buildup percs being mixed in really weak.
2: idk if the ending is highpassed on purpose but yeah uhh its a lil weird as is
3: the drops can be really empty at times, especially in the second drop, and thats i think due to just how thin and subby the bass is. I think a neurofunk bass would have made this a lot better tbh

Anyhow thats all for my rambles. Really cool song overall, good luck on nguac!!

This is epic!! Well done :D
