This project has been around for years XD

I've apparently done something with it every few months and changed the score a little along with the instruments. So here's the final result of all that I guess, although I wouldn't call it a major project or anything...oh and it took 45 minutes to render...dear god >_<

This one's a slow paced breakbeat than my usual stuff, at 120bpm instead of 140-170bpm. Kinda a combination of breaktrance and ambience (but not enough to cat it as either genre....X_X )

Genre: Breaktrance, Ambience
KBPS: 160
Length: 6:48
Tempo: 120bpm
Patterns: 31
Channels: 17
Automation Envelopes: 5
Effects Channels: 5

Time for a review from me again :P

I have listened to all of your 2008 songs in the past 2 days, and I'm sorry to say that only this and Eclipse are the ones that I really liked. It's not as if the rest were bad, I can listen to them as a background, but... they just didn't grab my attention. Eh ignore me, my taste is too picky when it comes to DnB/Breaktrance/anything of the sort :P
So, about the song. I like the stereo effects (except for the part where you move everything to the top of my head - thats what it sounds like with headphones) and the whole atmosphere of the song. The pace is slow, the instruments are not too flashy, but the melody is epic. This contrast creates a mood of supressed fury, a murderous anger concealed... the kind that makes that muscle above the side of your mouth twitch...
Loved it. 10/10

I havn't seen your name around in a bit :)

You might like Severed Pride when I eventually get it done, I've got a link to a demo of it in my journal if you want a quick listen ;)

Nice work :P

Some might call it repetitive, but I think it's just right. I hear it constantly change, and it's all perfectly done. Nice one =]

This...This....This is Fantastic!

Firstly, it's another fantastic Drum and Bass track from you. It's Definately going in the collection of your works I have XD.

This reminds me of 'Fortune' I think the bells and the melody at the begining reminded me of it. I'll may have the melody in my head for some time now thanks to this... and similar things happened with 'Eclipse', 'Starfall', 'Chasm' and many more XD.

The ambient part fuses well with the Breakbeat giving a good result. The name suits the track too; it is afterall alternate Drum and Bass. The project is aged but what you have done effectively is worked slowly on it, spending time making sure everything is reasonably perfect. The effects are pretty good too. Love that sitar/ indian sound in the background and how when the drums come in it turns into a synth.

The drums remind me of beatboxing. It just sounds that way.

One problem though. It may be something to do with my crappy speakers but it keeps leveling off and crackling.

Overall then, an above average drum 'n' bass track suitably named and able to realate to people who don't listen to drum 'n' bass and the same can be said for those who don't normally listen to ambient. I reckon it could be one of the best Drum and Bass tracks you have ever made!

Well, that's enough text from me on this track XD

TheComet responds:

One of the percussion instruments has a crackling sorta sound when it hits, so it might be that kicker you're hearing and not peaking

It's Cleaver.

I liked the mix of Ambience with the Breakbeat. I also loved the tempo! Usually I like things fast and raw but this was fitting to have it slow as seen. You evidently know what you're talking about when you make these things so I'll leave it to you.

If I can say something negative thought, it's that there doesn't seam to be a real change in melody. It seams very samy and no real diffrence. A key change maybe? That's something that's rarely seen in this type of stuff.

TheComet responds:

Yeah I'm with you on the score being a bit repetitive, most of the score remains original (aside from the arps from around 2:40 and the plucks from 3:12 or so) to the beginning of the project, mostly instruments were added and remade.

This is one of those songs I have as potential starting points for a remix in the near future, so I might work on this once again this summer

Very good! =)

I really really liked the song...
it was really good as an ambience with some breatrance which fitted perfectly... it made me calm and nice to people
