This is the first part of an experimental project. I've worked with new compositions and recording methods. The first part is not really metal but rather ambiant and melodic.This is not perfect yet and there are many things to improve in this tune.

About my recording equipment, it's almost the same that in my other song but this time I've used Ableton Live 6.0.7 and not the 7th version which sucks ... ^^. Always my fuckin' Zoom G2.1u, so the guitar sounds kinda weird and synthetic ... unfortunately.
Feel you free to comment on the EQ work and stuff ....

I hope you will like this song and STAY METAL \m/\m/.

Edit : New snare : 14 x 5.5" Tama Starclassic. EQed to the max !!!

Ps: Wait for the second part if you want real metal ! Fuckers !

Not bad.

This actually made me really relaxed and tired. It had a soothing beat to it and I guess The Sleep would be a pretty good title for it. Something you usually don't hear in a heavy metal submission. The crows in the beginning and end are interesting.

Lol, thanks for reviewing !


Awesome as always. Like your octave melodies. Reminds me of older strategic games like Red Alert and so on. Great overall sound. Drums = <3 . Your mixing between Clean and distorted sound is perfect. Can hear details easy as hell and so on. Great work as always!

Sonofkirk responds:

Lol, never play this game ... I'm happy to see that you liked the drums :P. Thanks again !!

Very nice!

Your guitars don't sound fake and synthetic, they sound as good, if not better than mine! Good song, I can't really see any major mistakes anywhere, and I can't hear static either! Great work!

Sonofkirk responds:

) Thanks a lot for the review. Check out my newer songs ; ).


this is the type of music i want to hear, and i think whoever made this song is a music GOD

Sonofkirk responds:

Lol, I made it : ). I'm glad to hear that I'm a music god lmao ! Thanks for the great review !

Proimising Stuff.

It has it's moments where I can close my eyes and I can convince myself I'm listening to an album of mine.
All I can think of is adding vocals and to a lesser extent read up on the tricks to EQs and effects and all that.

Sonofkirk responds:

Nice ! I will re-record the guitars with my new equipement and it will sound better.

Thanks for the review dude !
