Please tell me if you think of a good name for it, I had absolutely no idea what it should be called, so It shall be called Platypus for now. Just tell in the review if you think of a good name. Thanks.

This was inspired by video game music like the Halo and Metroid Prime serieses... which is why I put in the "chorus" notes (people singing)



The bassline is pretty hardcore.It reminded me of a mix of electro and Hard Trance. Could use a bit of work, but over all...pretty good man.

bass isnt very good

sounds too harsh if you ask me but thats just my opinion.
percussion isnt bad for a VG like song. but the melody is lacking alot. i cant really even hear the lead.
this can use some work
check out some of my stuff if ya want

Thanks for taking the time to review... This is a demo, I will def. add a better lead. And probably get rid of that crappy bassline. Probably a guitar lead, putting this into more "rock" territory.

I could tell what you were trying to do with this

but at the same time, I get a feeling like playing doom or something of the sort, since halo tends to be more orchastrated then anything, and metroid prime tends to be more of a space-ish techno, where is this is like your in level of doom or something.

But with that being said, the music doesnt feel right, since it doesn't have a solid melody to it, just seems like a bunch of stuff thrown it together at a hope that it'll work. If you notice with doom/metroid prime/ or halo, you can realized the melody, and where is going, but it never strays.

And lastly, what I think is the melody, the side instruments always seem to go off key from what your main melody. Like the chorus, it sometimes isnt exactly right for the part. The drums you have here are fine for the songs direction, but the blending definately need a reworking.

and that's it for my oppinion. None of it was meant to be mean in any way, and you can come check out my stuff if you like.

GUEoRILLA responds:

Yeah I'm working on a better version... My friend and I are collaborating on improving demos we each make, when we release our collabs we will put something after the final versions, like (M15eRy M4CH1n3), which is our working name.
