Listened to the remastered

And while it was better, this one isn't bad. I really enjoyed the intro, and when the vocals began they surprisingly kept me interested in the rest of the song.

It's what a metal song should be and I believe you nailed for the most part. The ending didn't quite fit, but the main focus was on the metal itself. Overall it wasn't bad.

Ok thanks for the review. I'm thinking about changing the ending sometime.

Sounds raw and unpolished

The intro is pretty nice. I like the riff that is played there. When the vocals set in I am tempted to turn off the song instantly. But I fought that urge back and I was rewarded with an unpolished but yet pretty cool song.
Because if I leave the overdriven guitars and drums aside then the song IS in fact a good one. Fast, uncompromising and brutal "in your face" metal. That's what I like (well, at least most of the time ^^)

I'll sure check out the remastered version of this.

Ok thanks for the review. I'll try to make it better.

Too fragmented

I think that this 'song' needs a lot of work, as it sounds like there are 4 component parts that do not mesh together very well, if at all. This is where the mastering stage comes in, even for a thrash metal / death metal track like this, you need to put some effort into getting the pieces to work together and compliment each other.

The indiscriminate yelling into the mic is something that I won't be able to get you to change, but perhaps a few little tweaks of the lyrics themselves would help - there is no need to swear, as the emphasis is already there from the fact that you're yelling at the top of your lungs like some rabid dog.

Getting the guitar solo and the bass solo to play together would help - they sound like they are fighting and it's not the way to go. Get these parts working together and most of the battle is won.

Umm Im sorry but your review didnt make much sense.
Um try listening to our remastered version of this song.
Maybe it will appease you more.

Bad vocals

It started off quite nicely, but when the vocals came in it went downhill. They seemed to be closer to talking than singing, and that wasn't because of the screamy quality. Either way, it just didn't sound good.

I think you could have made the guitar a bit louder, because there was a nice melody there, but it was overpowered by the drums and the vocals.

The endign was quite boring..Try to find more original endings than fading out. It just didn't work in a heavy metal song.

Ok thanks for the review.
But try listening to our remastered version you might like it more.

Hmm, like I mentioned in another of your songs.

I'm a big heavy metal fan so you're getting a few extra bonus points from me, but overall it's just not good heavy metal music. The biggest problem all around is the voice. It just doesn't sound great. A lot of it sounds very rushed and just isn't the heavy metal voice that I think of when I listen to a song like this.

The guitar and drums were done very well. Perhaps the entire thing had a quality problem all around.

The lyrics themselves were ok here, but sounded like they needed some actual singing in between the screams. Your best quality though is obviously the longer screams like at the very end of the song. The other parts just don't seem to cut it for me though.
