Actually, I liked the keyboard. Can't always win. It was good. I know you tried to blend metal in, and you had the drums, but the guitar is the backbone of metal, and it just wasn't there. Even so. You get an 8 for great composition, and not getting off scale, and all that. Its a good song, but I don't really think its Ipod worthy, on my list. Keep goin!!
Here's the thing.
You have two different beats through this song that don't really fit together. These two sounds don't meld well, and so you're kind of forced to listen to one or the other. It does get a ton better when you throw in the orchestra. That raised the song to a higher level. Then the super-quick keyboard solo took that away again. You need to find that nirvania in there--the balance. However, it wasn't a horrible song...not terrible in any way. Just...mediocre. You can do better than this.
thanks man. Like i said, I tried to blend my 3 fave genres. Separate, they do fine. Just like everyone else, there's some things I'm not good at. I've got another song in the works that I'll put up in a while tho.
