A very good mix of your usual playing and some heavy industrial drums. Still I'd say this is more "Heavy Metal" than "Industrial". To be more industrial it needs more heavy drums and a heavier beat overall. Plus it has to sound more sinister. At least in my opinion.

But that doesn't mean I dislike this song. I think the experiment worked out very well! :)

Sonofkirk responds:

Yeah, it was hard to make up my mind about the genre of this song ... Maybe I did the wrong choice :P. I still can change the genre, so I will : ). Thanks for your reviews bro, it's awesome to hear your opinion ;).


I could see this being used on flashes and I'm really surprised it hasn't been used on any here on newgrounds. I think it would make an awesome introduction to a main character/boss/enemy/etc.. maybe even good for credits or titles. Good job man. (If a flash project of mine is completed this may be a good song for something in it)


Sonofkirk responds:

You must know it but feel free to use any of my songs for your flash :). Thanks for the review brother.


awesome...i wouldn't work in newgrounds so i had to download it, but im glad i did, its an awesome song

Sonofkirk responds:

Thanks for the DL and the review dude, much appreciated !


Can't believe I missed this song. Great Chord progressions. Nice use of the DIM scale. Drum flanger effects used in a genious way. Great guitar tone. Nothing to complain about. Bass perhaps too low , or no bass. :)
Other then that , great as always :)
