The guitar tone sounds great. There are moments in the song's structure reminding me of stages from Blaz Blue/Guilty Gear, but the slower parts would fit better to a montage sequence in a flash or a movie...something being built, or someone training, y'know?
It's still really badass...I'm a huge fan of Dream Theater, so there's really no way for me to hate this. I guess you could add vocals to make it even better, but everything came together greatly as a song. Voted 5!
Everything combines so nicely. It's actually rather inspiring, making me want to go finish a few projects.
the composition blows my mind. talk about freaking epic. i only feel justified in giving you an 8/10 though because your mixing simply didn't match up to your composition. if i had to suggest anything, it would be to lower the volume on some of the hits and the guitar because it overloads sometimes and simply drowns out other things like the (excellent) percussion. all of that aside, this track bloody great, and i should probably just listen to it on speakers instead of my mastering headphones :P
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
