Okay, so I was listening to some Meshuggah the other day, and thoguht, "Hey, I could do that." (scoffs at own stupidity) Well, I did try, and here did the outcome lie. (the voices came from GarageBand interface, not me)

nice song!

very good job but i have to agree with TheBardOfBlasphemy real guitars are a bonus if u can get real guitars it would sound alot better mainly because the notes would lead up to each other and blend a bit making the song more smooth and sound better but overall good job also i love the part at 00:52 when the guy says "i didn't see that coming "

masterjiji responds:

yeah. gotta love those prerecorded one-liners.

and by the way, your thumbnail is blindingly colorful, to the point that my three key is broken because my melted eyeballs dribbled onto it and into the circuitry.

good, spazo rhythms

i gotta be honest though... i do prefer "real guitars". Dunno what your situation is regarding ability to record/play guitars. You've certainly got composition sorted out!

still metal... still nice and evil. Good job.

masterjiji responds:

pleah. the GarageBand synths do suck fudge, but i ought to go soundpack-hunting.


I love how you said, (scoffs at own stupidity.) Made me laugh sir.

As for the song, it alright. I don't listen to much Meshuggah. I think Mnemic does a way better job at mass syncopation. But that is a topic for another day.

So I can't really say if I think it sounds much like Meshuggah, cause I really don't know. As the song goes though, I like it. The syncopation is what I'm guessing you took as influence from Meshuggah on this song.

I think it is a little too repetitive. Some of the riffs are syncopated, but they tend to repeat themselves every 2 bars. I do know that the syncopation style used by both Meshuggah and Mnemic does not repeat so quickly. And therefore is much harder to follow. Because if you extend the riffs out longer, then the syncopation has the possibility of becoming beyond complicated.

I am not fond of the one crash or high hat it is you hit on the downbeat around the 2:00 mark. Really odd sound. The guitar sounds great as far as the distortion goes. I like it a lot.

So I say good job, but extend the riffs. That should help you get a more "Meshuggah-ish" sound. Definitely on the right track though.

4/5 and 8/10 overall.


masterjiji responds:

i do try.

well, everybody has an opinion.

it is.

thx good advice, this IS my first whack at such metal.

yeah. GarageBand cymbals just aint that great.

i say, what what.


i see your name.
