I wish I was Akin to this song.
Since it's sick. This song boldly reminds me of Pensive in terms of construction, being the heavy and clean-chordy sections, which the skillful upbringing of these two elements together is the Zephman style.
Start heavy, then convert to airy and clean, which, in my opinion seems to be a formula that works. The guitar tone really has some drive to it, it's definately distorted, but not overly-done, which can definately ruin songs. This is at an appropriate level where you can have a beastly kick of crunch and still get your grind in. ^_^
I honestly could listen to just distorted guitars, but the chords that are used clean wouldn't have the same identity if distorted, which really makes the discarding of the distortion appropriate for a dynamic sound.
A little past 2:00 the first breakdown-esque section doesn't feel completely fitting, but as they progress they feel more and more Akin to the submission. (what is with my puns? >_<)
After the harmonic section, the low-gain, low-tone strumming added another possible element to the song, which fits really well with the chords again. It could just simplt be the same clean section used earlier though.
You must be a Zephmanologist! Thanks for the kind words man. The breakdown part you mentioned at 2:00 is were the hiccup is I'm pretty sure, so that might be why you're thrown off. That is the same riff as the opening if you didn't notice :P.
9 Stars Get!
This totally makes me think abut a Fighting game. Fr some Reason it Guilty Gear.
The sound is awsme so far. I have to say sme good wrk here.
In my opinion I would love to hear the guitar with a the slightest bit of reverb. I personaly think that wuld help. But s far s good! ROCK ON!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
