Fire 118 is right. A lot of your best work is metal. This is no exception.
dude what can i say?
this song rules.
But you have some serious sound issues. Your compression is awesome, but it is clipping and popping all over. That is severely hampering your sound. Don't get me wrong, I love compression in my music like no other. But I think you need to tweak your compressions on this song.
Now musically, this song is cool as fuck. Great guitar riffs, and decent vocals. Although, they aren't my style at all. I do love the vocals around the 0:40 mark. Reminds me a bit of Mudvayne before they started making pop metal for the radio. Not my style overall vocally, but I won't hold that against you.
As for the guitar sound itself, I like it. Heavy, yet not too low. And they really fit your vocals very nicely. Very tasteful choice there.
As for the drums, they need some work. The high ends are well mixed and recorded. Or if you are using a generator, you used a good set for your type of sound. But the kick, wow the kick is way to low. You need to raise it a lot. But I do think the kick sounds good, just not loud enough.
So yea, 3/5 and 7/10 because you have serious clipping and popping issues in this song. And it is hard to give a song a great score when there is tons of popping and clipping. Especially the popping. Clipping isn't the end of the world, but the popping is VERY hurtful to the songs sound.
Hope this helped.
Hey thanks for the review!
The popping unfortunately I can't do anything about right now. My audio interface makes that sound for some reason, and it ends up in all the recordings :(. The clipping, I actually don't hear at all, so I'm not sure what you mean. As for compression, the only things that have compression is the snare drum, bass guitar, and the entire mix is run thru a multi-band compressor (edit:forgot 2 say vox are compressed 2 obv lol). I'm guessing it's the multi-band you don't like, probably the low end. I feel the exact same way. That's also why the kick isn't coming out as well as it should. I fixed this in my up-coming track, and the kick sounds fucking KILLER in it ;D. I can't wait to have it finished.
This is sexyness
MAKE MORE METAL!!!!!
a dish served loud.. no louder.. LOUDER!!!
great work man! I am truly impressed :D
Don't play that shit too loud, now, or you'll end up a half-deaf motherfucker like me, always going "what? WHAT!? WHAAAAT'D YOOOOU JUST SAAAAAAY!??!!??!?!!?!?"
Seriously, I swear imma be completely deaf by the time I'm 40.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
