There's a music I've made for Movin'Guts, a mod of the open-source game Tremulous.
If you listen to it, turn your lights off, use headphones, close your eyes and imagine that you're in a creepy mansion (with ZAAAMBEEEEZZZZ :D).

I hesitated for the music genre. I put it in the Industrial category, but it's also an ambient/videogame music!

EDIT: Now in ambient category!

You mentioned doing an original

In a reply to an earlier review you mentioned that you'd do an original next. I decided to check it out, and I'm glad I did.

The good: Tone and pacing. What you did here was quite neat in that you captured a big empty spooky place, by creating a rhythm that gave the auditory illusion of echos, a fairly common technique I've seen used in many games and movies. The pacing gives a feel of walking, not running, which would help drive action in a section of a game where players might feel compelled to check around every corner for hidden surprises.

The bad: A little bland. Pieces of this sort are supposed to build tension, and when the music doesn't surprise the listener a little, the tension it provides gradually diminishes until it's just background noise.

The uncertain: I'm not sure how much spooky music of this sort fits with a theme of zombies. To an extent zombies are spooky, but frequently, zombies drive action, not terror. That said, I don't know how you intended this piece to be used in your mod, so it may not be an applicable point and certainly doesn't affect the quality of the piece.

Well, anyways, good luck with your future musical endeavors.

hmmm... i guess...

when i clicked on the link this wasn't exactly what i had in mind. Even when i started it up i was expecting some huge build up to occur since this song would be excellent. of course it would also need some other stuff that i will mention later in this review but thats my general point of view that i'm going to try to back up. It's been a long time since my last review so i'm going to use this song as a warm up since i'm kinda judging for this huge competition in the coming week. Hope you enjoy the feedback. I won't be following any pattern with my review like i usually do, because its seriously a pain in the ass and right now, i just don't feel like it xP.

- The instruments you selected are appropriate yet unoriginal. First of all, there really isn't enough instruments resulting in a very repetitive and somewhat boring sound. The drums are also lacking: when i started the song, even though i realized it was in the ambient category, i was sure it was going to jump into drum and bass since the melody is almost perfect for that genre. I could imagine it now! super fast and bassy drums, phased basses mixed with some cutoff here and there and i little use of gross beat would really, if done correctly, make a hit of a song.

- Some thing that you should really check in this song, is the effects. adding some reverbe... well actually... allot of reverbe and some filter effects would also make this song allot more interesting. especially for the drums because, for the time being, they are seriously "out of it". the samples don't fit in with the song at all! especially for the snare. but some added effects may be able to ease the fall of the drums. I absolutely love the kick though.

- My favorite part of the song is from 2:43 to 3:30. although the absence of FX samples does make it sound a little empty... ok maybe allot empty... but it is still the most innovative part of the piece and it does sound quiet interesting.

- the song really hasnt been well looped. something that might work is that on what ever program your using, you should copy everything you have and make it so that it happens three times in a row. That way, you can cut out the second loop, the one in the middle, and you will have the residue at the end of the loop also at the beggining. there are other ways of doing it but thats what i would do.

NOTE: it's not that bad, its just not really that good. Some more work may be required to make it what it should be. sorry if i cut short on the positive sides i just wanted to concentrate on what needed to be done. I know i didn't talk about everything but this should still prove as a satisfactory review.

I like.

Hey this is pretty sick, I'd actually like to cover this if that's okay with you. It's spooky, and it works really well. Though I'd class it as ambient more than industrial.

People find this review helpful!

Thanks for your comment!
For the cover, I've already made one, but you can make another one if you want to, and if it's better i'll use it with pleasure ;)
