I decided I wanted a shot at a more heavy metal style piece. So i wrote the lyrics, came up with a tune, sat down to compose...And got something COMPLETELY different that what I originally intended.

No lyrics here cause not only am I too nervous to sing, but my jaw was wired shut when I composed this cause of jaw surgery. Oh well.

Although it's a black and white difference from what I wanted, and i got a little lazy at the end. I think overall it sounds fun and interesting.

Doesnt feel together

Some of the parts do seem to conflict. This is generally good. At 4:20, make the bass or whatever more clear. Not certain what you wanted, but this is pretty good.

A song that fights itself- Judge carefully.

To be quite honest, this song reminds me incredibly a lot about several boss themes.

The 'synthesized audience noises' remind me of the noises used for Lavos's theme songs in Chrono Trigger.

Some of the beats made by drums remind me of boss battle themes from the Soul Blazer series of games.

The small hints of something that sounds like a violin makes the theme quickly turn into something from the Musashi, Ninja Gaiden or Strider Hiryu stage songs, making it have an oriental feel.

These are my opinions, and personally, I enjoyed listening to this song- however, it feels as if the tunes are quarreling with each other, and may get a little hard to listen to.

intro needs work.

the rest of it isn't all that bad.. Just may wanna work with that simply because its annoying a bit and hurtful to the ears. Keep on it!


Iritating at first

The beggining sounds were very irritating. But like a warhead the song started out sour and made the switch to sweet. I nice piece of work.

Great melody, don't be discouraged by the intro

i found the synthesized audience sounds in the beginning a bit irritating at first, but after about a minute through the song, i started to fall in love with the synthesized melody. I'm sure this tune will stick in my head for a couple days.
