Download this song!

Ello newgrounds!

I present to you, me first entry to the Electronic EP #2

This song is the Sequel to Raving zombies
And I'm planning on making this song 4 mins.



Generic and unusual at the same time

Strange. This sounds pretty generic, just as nearly all techno songs sound. But yet this sounds very unusual with the added "egypt-effects". This creates a very interesting contrast and is nice to listen to.

I think some added vocals could help this song. Maybe some very deep voice that represents some egyptian god could sing something in arabic (or at least something that sounds arabian -.-).

Stereotypical, but techno.

Ah, the stereotype of the 1980s "Walk like an Egyptian" How far music has come in 20 years.

It's taken this stereotypical edge and has been given additional bells and whistles to take it away from the stereotype, without becoming completely detached from the origins. I like the rising note that comes in there and seems to act as punctuation for the song, breaking it nicely into more manageable pieces. The addition of a few vocals might have been of a great benefit in this piece, as that's about the only thing I can see the piece lacking all told.

First time i've heard one of your songs but your going straight to my fav authors list. Amazing work.

Still can't believe how u managed to blend Eygpt and Modern so perfectly. Great work.

The solo at 0:36 was purely awesome and the introduction (0:00 - 0:06) provided a smooth and well though out transition into the main melody of the song. The drums started to get a bit repetitive as u overused the kick a bit.

This demo just makes me raving to hear the whole thing which is basically what any demo should be happy with ;)

Great stuff! can't wait for the whole thing ;)

Aww man just a demo. :(

You did a good job though since this demo makes me want to hear the full version and that's what a demo should do. I was very surprised when I first started listening to this because I knew I had heard something like it at first, but didn't realize that it was a sequel to Raving Zombies, which is a song I happen to have on my favorites.

You can see the egyptian influence here for sure and it's a pretty cool song to listen to all around. Good job on the demo.

You're going straight to my Fav Artists List ^^

Excellent song. Next time we'll be seeing this is in the Electronic EP #2, that's for sure. Great job XD.

What's really amazing about this song is the epic batch of melodies you have here. They sound very Egyptians-ish, and are really catchy. The're also really energetic, but still leave that ancient feel to it. I loved the melody at 0:11. The instruments don't sound that Egypt-like, although they sound very cool, but the melodies take care of that. It's the melodies that sound so great in this song. Nice use of effects too.

Transitions, as usual, were impossibly good, and excellent for an energetic song like this. I especially liked the transition at 0:36, and there was an awesome solo after too. This never got repetitive, but had a great structure. The intro was great, and it started the song very well, but the ending was too abrupt and sudden, although I guess that's because this is a demo.

The drums, although got slightly annoying since it had a kick every beat a lot of the time, were still awesome, and the samples were really good. Nice drum rolls which made good transitions, so in all, the drums were great too.

I usually write longer reviews than this, but I can't say much for this. It's a great song, and I'm sure it'll enter that Electronic EP #2. Keep up the great work :D.
