Dig it.

Pretty badass. Well written song. I'd really like to hear a version with vox, as your author comments suggest. Please, if it isn't too much trouble, I'd like to get a PM when that happens.

The tech stuff was covered. There are multiple techniques to help out with whatever rig you sport. This is pretty cool, though.

bad-man!!!!! awww yea! i know i did something right if you're leaving a review! i'm very honored! i'll definitely let you know when the vox version is up. but i may teak the song first so that the guitar is a little louder.

Here's some suggestions, man.

Hey man, I'm diggin what you've got goin on here. It feels a little more progressive than most of the metal songs released on NG. I'll tell ya what, your sound isn't half bad. The drums are definitely too loud, and the guitar is definitely too soft, but that's a hell of a lot better than it being blaringly loud and puke-worthy...as is the condition of most metal songs here lol. Here's a suggestion my friend, since I'm practically doing the exact same thing you're doing right now. I don't know exactly how you record, but by the sound of the ultra-compression I'm assuming you record straight into your computer somehow. Try this - mic your amp by the cone with a condenser mic (like the Audix i5, which is one of the most badass mics at a relatively low cost from what I hear), keeping the mic about 2 inches away from the cone and at a 45 degree angle with the speaker. I've heard the sound is more natural (although I have yet to test it =P), and it's certainly better than recording straight into your computer. Of course, in order to record with a condenser mic, you'll need some sort of a preamp, like the Firebox or something like that. The Firebox itself is a useful tool in ridding yourself of the obnoxious frequencies that typically lend your project to destruction (i.e. the annoying popping and fuzzing that tends to accumulate when you record straight into your computer). I hope this helps man, because this has the potential to go somewhere with the right techniques.

Ritz190 responds:

awesome! that has to be one of the best tips i've received since i've been here...I'll look into that mic for sure because i use a longiteh chat mic (which is about as good as recording straight from the computer) and you're the first to understand the feedback issue! most of my songs will be revised once i get the perfect recording technique. you can bet on that! if you get the chance, check out some of my other songs! i'd really appreciate it! thanks for the review and rock on man!


You're having the same problem I was having, and still am having, the drums are overpowering the guitar, turn the guitar up a bit, but let the drums stay as is. You've also done something I simply cannot do with synth, which is making it cooperate with the guitar. The drums are very good, but like said above, not too loud, but overpowering the guitar, turn it up. I haven't the ear for picking up bass, so I can't even tell if there's bass in this song, but if there is, turn it up. Overall this song is good, just has some volume problems, I won't take away from it because of that though, 8/10, keep making music.

Ritz190 responds:

yea i gotta learn how to regulate that! but i'm glad you liked the song for what it really is...once i figure all this out, i'll be sure to re-upload the song and make it PERFECT!!! thanks for the review!
