I really didn't have enough of an appreciation of symphonic metal, until I came across this song a while ago, but thanks to my sheer laziness, I never reviewed this submission, why Ryan?
Anyway, as I mentioned, this is really quite a beholding peice of symphonic metal. Of which, I especially appreciate the projection of the symphony, being, that they aren't completely drowned out in the percussion, or even the guitars for that fact too.
Speaking of guitars, in my opinion, that rythm has some strangely ungodly awesome-sounding tone, I really need to know how you can get that distortion to actually sound like that. I enjoyed the lead thoroughly too, especially it's implementation.
Drums really seem to fit a niche that one is unable to complain with, but at the same exact time, seems like there should be something done to inprove them somehow, I personally am not sure what though, maybe volume.
Now, for vocals, I love the fact that vocals are clean, it melds well with really everything, the female vocalist has an admirable voice for singing harmony, I believe? Honestly though, as much as the vocals impressed me, maybe there could be work done to improve your ability for proper sustain, but honestly I can't even do that myself, the hypocrite that I am. >_>
Well, foreward, this is really an emotional track, that made me feel very moved as I listened to it, you heard me, I really appreciate this track, but what are the Diclonius anyway?
Regardless, do more symphonic metal please.
