Metal Fatigue - BK

Author Comments

Hard classical style trance. It is really hardcore after the intro!!! I edited this song what seemed to be like three weeks after it's completion to fix lil things. The song was originally called "Death of Figaro" but i didn't like the name. Metal Fatigue can be taken in two ways: as a metal out fit or the slow wearing of metal till it breaks. That breaking point is the climax. This song was so hardcore that i had a hard time making a solid climax at the end. So i made the ending kind of drop off, but that made the song loopable, so it works. This song is a master piece so respect the work. I hope you enjoy the piece, please vote and review, thanks. Peace, out! -BK

Not, my favorite...

I'm sorry man. I'm just not diggin' this one that much after 1:45. I can tell you put a lot of work into it. I think the trouble with this one, believe it or not, is that you were shootin' for too many ideas at once.
Trance isn't my thing and you know that... but with a name like Metal Fatigue, I thought this song would be a lot darker than it was. Maybe that climax you wanted could've benefitted from more layering and less ascending scales. Still though, the idea to loop it worked. I actually really like the intro riff at the first 40 seconds of the song.

Good, but not your best...

I liked it, especially the voice sample, but it was definitely not your best. The synth seemed sort of all over the place, and I believe you should have had more of a hook that varied a little from the rest of the song. It seemed like it was all one "verse" without much change to the synth in my opinion. Also, the hi-hat at around 2:01 seemed a bit dull, especially with one hit. Maybe try a light echo or another (different) hat lightly following immediately (such as a closed/opened hat), I don't know. I think if you made the drums a bit harder at that point (especially around 2:04-2:05 area), that could have been a real climax, or hook if you extended that part with the drums maybe just a few more seconds.

Just my opinion, don't know if it would work or not.

keep it up,

Lol Fish,

I made myself a trance too.

Nice and deep

(thats what she said!) har har har, but although the base and style was heavy
It felt like too much of a spirit raiser... even for trance,
I liked the song none-the-less but try and keep a steady beat like this one but also try a less tight ass techno approach.

I don't think this is hard enough.

If you want it to be Hard style you need more. This is more regular trance with a heavier-than-the-usual base. It's a good song and I like it though. It could use some extra umph though.

Bracksta responds:

i'll take that into acount for my next song, thanks dude. i guess i'll try heavier bass synth, hmm.... Reviews are always appriciated, thanks for leaving one!
