EDIT October 1, 2008, 7:23 PM:

Unfortunately, it looks like I'll be finishing this song much later than expected cuz I just got assigned to code an entire website for school. For some reason, I only like coding by hand so it's gonna take a while and between the site and the rest of my homework, I won't get much time to work on the song. I'll definitely finish it though, I was just planning to finish this within the week and that hope has been shattered unfortunately.

Anyways, to everyone who reviewed the song, THANK YOU for all the suggestions and criticisms, it has definitely helped massively in making the song.

Hey guys, this is a demo for an upcoming song and I was hoping for some feedback on what I've got so far.

I really want some feedback on the mixing and overall flow of the song.

Thanks for taking the time :D

Very good melody so far, but I really think that you should work a bit on the guitar. It sounds a little fake :P Otherwise, great work :)


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


Well, I always give reviews to my reviewers, and I'd have to say that this is a pretty awesome song. However, like the reviewer before me, I think that the melody gets a little repetitive the second half of the song... If you are going to be making this longer, definitely change up the melody.

Overall, pretty sweet.

Hey man, this is cool.

The intro was really cool, and the tune yeah.
As for flow, it seemed smooth although at times the guitar seemed a bit loud and overpowering, but it was pretty good.
The piece as a whole was short and you could have incorporated more parts and instruments into it, but then it is a demo ;) Though it gets a bit repetetive at times.
Other than that the melody seemed pretty decent and the beat was slick (though at times covered up by the guitar). Altogether well done, I definitely liked the wind instrument. I'll check back in when the full version is out.

hey thanks, yup, so far I've taken out the guitar, changed the main instrument written a few parts and kinda added a techno twist to it (couldnt resist XD)

Good so far

i've pbviously just read your message. :P

the start really hooks you on the song.
the sounds you created work really well here. good job. :)
i think it's just a little repetitive, definately add a chorus and maybe a break so it gives the song some more life.
i like the sound of the guitar.
try experimenting with different melodies till you find one that fits with the song.
but you do need some variation with riffs and try changing the tempo of the song at some points, like go slow then speed it up, ect.

try also adding some different instruments to it, and add some extra bass maybe?
unless you don't like any of that stuff then, alright. :P
i think everyone really hints on the same things but puts it different ways tbh.
but you know!
definately tell me when the full version is ready, i'll have to download it. :)
keep it up!

HMS-Productions responds:

hey thanks, lol

I knew from the start that I needed more variation, but I wanted to get a quick demo down. I've written some parts since then.

I usually have trouble harmonizing... maybe I'll get S to help me out there, he's much better at all this music stuff..

this is pretty fun

nice catchy tune you have here. I agree with F-777 on a lot of points. A longer intro would make the title of this song more appropriate. And I personally feel that on the introduction of the Slayer, that you fade it in (don't start the slayer from a dead silence tho). Maybe, for the intro of the Slayer, play just a little bit of it at a time.

That sounds confusing when I write it ... ',: ' lets say for example that the tabs for your slayer are D-C-A-D-B-G-F. I dunno, I can't tell notes by ear, but bear with me. For the whole bar that it would take for this pattern to go thru, just play (in this case): D-C-A. and once that bar is done and the next one starts play your: DBGF. Hope that makes more sense. I don't know music-lingo at all o_o;

In any case, this is pretty good what you've got started. I would reccomend seeing how you like the slayer with Reverb2. Its my personal favorite lately and I think that it could add that little bit of wetness (or a lot if you fancy) that will benfit this song.

And as an side, I am very sorry that this is the first chance I've had to review your stuff, I haven't forgotten-just busy ^=^;

keep it up and lemme know if you update this.

HMS-Productions responds:

ahh once again, the dreaded Slayer... gonna try to replace it with something that sets the same sort of mood.

That makes sense, it put it in and it sounds great! haha I don't do much in music lingo either :p

Thanks for checking it out :)
