havnt seen it

Only silent to those who don't listen

Not a bad little tune here - this piece brings to life the sounds of a deserted castle, that isn't completely dead yet. There are still things in there that can keep this place sounding like there is someone home.

What you might need is the occasional sound of a creaking floorboard (nothing too major, as it would start to sound too creepy)

It's got quite a lot of feeling in there, as if the place yearns to be inhabited once again. I like that emphasis.

I like.

This track was actually very impressive. The underlying sound of guitar static was a little bit distracting. If your familiar with Burzum, I would say it sounds like one of Burzums super depressing guitar songs. I liked it though, very much. Keep up the good work.

Kind regards -


Right now it rains outside and this track fits very well to the weather, heh. It's quite an experience. ^^

The song has a very sad feeling to it and this feeling is even amplified by the rain outside.

I really like the slow solo, even though you didn't play that clean here and there. But well, I know how you feel. If you mess up during recording one can get quickly bored of it. Especially if you mess up towards the end of the piece you are trying to record.

Anway, the song is very nice and I like the sad and calm atmosphere a lot!

Not bad.

I found this song to be very relaxing, which is a good thing because it's 1:00 in the morning and I'm having a hard time getting to bed. Perhaps this song will help a little bit. ^^ The guitar was pretty good throughout the entire thing even though there were some spots here and there that seemed like you messed up a little bit or parts that just sounded a little out of place or messy. Is this just completely guitar? The solo was decent. I'm use to the fast past solos since I usually listen to heavy metal audio here on newgrounds, but overall the entire piece was pretty good. Good night. :)

Thanks for the reviews! It is completely guitar too. And yes youre right, anything that sounds like I messed up is because...well I messed up. I had recorded the solo like 4 times and messed up the least on this one and I reeeaaaly didnt feel like recording it again. so...yeah
