A | Assembly line, in a nice atmosphere
Very nice song! I love industrial, but it's very hard to find good works outside of old video games. This is the closest I can hope to find to the perfect sound without learning to make it myself, all in perspective of course.
Only one complaint. Your sound skin choice for a few of the tracks were too happy sounding. It gave your 'blackened skies' a more sunny look. Instead of rusted the industry was recovering. It sounded more like a zooming tour of a mine shaft with millions of workers, hammering away. Then at 0:43 - 1:10 it shows a barren tunnel. At 1:10 - 1:38 it shows the outside of the mine (which is underground). I also picture a massive smithy, and I mean HUGE, somewhere in the background. But after 1:38 I loose track of the story and I can't picture where it's going.
VERY nice! Thank you.
y'know, you've got a point, at about that time i stopped really.... "feeling" the piece, it kinda never really climaxed or anything, just moved through passages. Interesting you point that out cuz i've never really thought about it.
Thanks for the review :D
A kickass composition from you. I love the whole flow and structure of the song. It has that industrial touch like you said. Yet it is very contemporary. Very unique sound you got here man, and I like it a lot.
As for the individual mechanisms themselves, the piano is simply badass. I love the sound of it in this piece, both structurally and harmonically. The pulsing chords in the right hand really drive this song forward. And they mesh well with the rest of the instruments, especially the strings.
I love the distortions you used throughout the piece. I think most most striking is the water effect on the gong. It really distorts the reality within the piece itself. A very nice touch there bud.
The choir is awesome! I never would have thought of that in that situation, so kudos to you for the awesome idea! I like the typewriter (?) type sound starting around the 2:43 mark. Ingenious little idea there really. It adds some flavor to that section for sure.
I love the ending. The upward rolling chord in the piano is a very classy way to end this piece. It really gives it that sense of closure you are looking for.
The overall mix you created was spot on. The kit is definitely noticeable in the mix, yet is not overpowering any of the other instruments in the song. The kick is really punchy, but still kinda distant. Not sure how you created that effect, but I like it!
What can I say, I simply love this man!
5/5 and 10/10 overall. Nothing I could really find wrong with it.
It has been favorited!
I was debating on the gong distortion, but i think you're right, it should stay. That whole distortion thing after the watery gong was a complete mistake, but i liked how "fucked up" it made the piece, so i kept it. I believe that typewriter noise is a sidestick panned left and right, but it's meant to be an industrial machinelike noise. So a typewriter visualization is perfect.
what kit? lol
Thanks muchly for the (awesome as usual) review.
I like it.
If you can't tell what genre it should be in, then you should have put it in miscellaneous.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
