The First of Best
You began with a wicked mix man you should really add&create songs more often.
This may sound odd, but it makes great head-banging music... I'm no professional, but I'm sure you could eventually make this 'uber'.
I like the feel!
I have never heard the original, but I love the mood this song creates! Also, I think it was good that your first song was kind of a remix, so that you did'nt have to work on making a catchy tune, and you could focus on instruments, transition ect - Which were great!
Awesome first song!
(how does that work out?)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
