I've Created A Monster!

My first rock song in a while. Lately, I've been writing electronica, classical, and a lot of piano stuff. You know, it was college season... had to impress the conservatories. I thought now that college app season is over and all I can do is wait, it was time to get back into the rock groove :D

Good ol' rock 'n roll. Unique bass tone created through a combination on a heavily distorted bass and a slap bass. Plenty of rockin' bass lines. The keyboard is the dominant feature of the song. Three Deep Purple-esque keyboard solos played by yours truly, each accompanied by different bass lines. Shreddin' it up here!

I also noticed after listening to my soloing on this song that after writing classical music for a while, I developed a better knowledge of music theory, which influenced my soloing a great deal!

I admit it starts off kinda weak but when the solo comes in, it picks up.

REVIEW PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

***EDIT 01/18/09: Changed the title to "I've Created A Monster." I thought the other one didn't do it justice...***

I love the drum work. It's simple at times, but it doesn't get in the way and the fills are perfectly timed, imo. If possible; however, I would change the velocity of the snare hits during the fills to give it a more human feel. Instead of all the same volume, I would make it gradually increase or gradually decrease.

I need to say nothing about the piano shredding. I wish I had your shredding skills. Man, those runs at 2:10+ make my jaw drop.

Epic at 2:52 with the transition. Nice repeated phrases for emphasis. I've gotta agree with you, the ending is better. Cool bass/drum change at 3:25.
Great shit with that repeated phrase at 4:30 on. It's so cool and catchy. Awesome stuff. :D

The only thing I would change is the drums to make them slightly more human sounding.
