Evil-Dog - Outbreak

Author Comments

This will be our last communication: The outbreak has reached pandemic proportion and all our attempts to contain it have failed. The government has been disolved and there is no contingency plan for a crisis of that magnitude. The undead have taken over all major cities and their surroundings and will continue to spread across the nation to more remote locations. Our future is looking grimmer than ever but we have faith in the strength of our species. May humankind find the determination and courage to survive and prevail. Good luck and God bless us all.


I went for a sort of 28 days later feel...I love that movie and its soundtrack, consider this piece a tribute if you want although it's not really one. That's just the kind of track I wanted to make :)
So enjoy and please leave comments, good or bad! :D

EDIT: Hey, Kalcaman decided to voice act the intro text, check it out! :)

I'm getting a Walking Dead vibe from listening to this.

Which came first--Outbreak, The Walking Dead or The Last of Us?? ;) HEHE!! Years later and it's still great. <3 <3

Great song, man. This track has had its special place in my favorites-list for quite some time. Truly one of the greats! I gotta ask you this though... is it possible for me to use it in an upcoming video/short film provided that I give ya credit?

sure, credits me and it's all good, cheers

I really was positive that I was going to love this track. I was. But I just can't enjoy it. It's all buildup. Everything is just rising, and there's no breakaway from it. It gets louder, but there's no climax. No payoff. This track is one of the biggest teases I've ever heard and that bums me out.

Evil-Dog responds:

That's a weird take on it, not sure how you perceived it that way but I'm not in your head.
I feel like it has a perfect structure of calm, rise, climax and fall. I'd say I'm biased but music is subjective anyway.

I loved the beginning when it has the low ambient sound in the background while the sounds come flowing in on top of it and it starts to pick up the beat about 40 seconds in. However I disliked it when the music all of a sudden started blaring really loudly around 2:20 with the "guitars?", and around 3:15 I started liking it again but it was too high pitched for me so it hurt my ears a bit. Other than that half of the song that I don't like it was pretty good.

Just on another note though, I am deaf so I perceive sounds differently than other people do so don't take my perception too personally. =)

An audio review by a deaf person, that's a first :)
