Bring out the heavy weapons! I put a pretty good amount of effort into this one. You might notice that I paid more attention to details than usual.

hooly shit.

it's ok. don't see how you'll expand on it myself, looking forward to a good 5 mins of this gamer D&B.

@MacGuges: Hooly Shiit! "I'm inexperienced as a music critic"

No, you're not. Trust me. Just, No. No. No. No. No.

Did you get blisters writing that HUGE WALL OF TEXT? That thing could've come in handy during WW2.

Anth0n responds:

I took down the full version to enter this in a contest, now I can put the full version back up. Sorry, it's not 5 minutes.


interesting beat, nice one.

A strong effort

Don't be offended by this score which is lower than you've received so far, because I have enjoyed the track. Though I may not make music or compose myself, I hope that when I apply myself creatively others would dispassionately compare my work against the potential within my medium. But I'm inexperienced as a music critic too, so I haven't found a good vocabulary for describing where this music falls short. But I will try to say something useful for you.

I enjoyed the phrases this track introduced; they did seem to remind me of fun memories of handling big guns in death match. There track created some tension across its duration, as it set up variations of these phrases, but the tension wasn't quite enough to urgently anticipate what follows. I imagine limited tension could be attributed to the tonal variation it demonstrated. In other words, this song had an attractive voice, but the paragraph it spoke wasn't as compelling.

Pardon my ineptly subjective qualifiers; I'm afraid I may appear to contradict myself as I attempt to rationalize impressions I don't typically give words to. The choral element felt like a decent effort to expand the track's musical territory, and a few scales travelled contributed energy. But as I take the track as a whole, it exhibits a sameness - in the lower registers, I feel. A percussive background without aspiration.. it seemed to stay where it started.

Two different composers come to my mind: Bach & Nine Inch Nails. JSB was a master at layering patterns in the foreground, the background & in-between, and inventing clever ways to pack them inside each other. The effect of listening to his music is to always be recognizing something as new what you'd before only noticed in passing. NIN accomplishes great layering too with modern instruments.

Anth0n responds:

Must have taken a long time to write that review. I'm still improving so it's important that you pointed out the flaws in this piece. Thanks for reviewing.

Too awesome

This is a great song! I love the instrumentation, and the intro is really good!

Anth0n responds:

I tried a couple of new things so I'm happy to see results. Glad you enjoyed it!

Simply amazing O_O

This is simply the best song I've ever heard from you and it beats just about any other song you've made before (not counting Apocalypse Storm, just rulz)! Your old, heavy beats are back, supported by some new rithms and other stuff which lifts thing this really upwards.
Things I didn't like:
- Those vocals at the start seem kinda unnecessary. Do know that I'm not really into vocals, but if you use vocals in a song, use them over the whole song, not just at the beginning or something.
- Sometimes, a certain rithm keeps going for too long (especially at the beginning). This makes people go: 'Jeez, this song is gonna stay the same all the time'. This could also be just me :-3


Anth0n responds:

Thanks for the feedback, and I'll be sure to take your criticism into consideration for future songs.
