This is a verrry old song (written when I was 15). I'm making an album of old songs re-recorded (entitled Shattered Fragments of a Past Forgotten), so this doesn't show off my musical ability, but does show off my sexy new mix. However, thanks to NewGrounds' 8mb limit, the quality of this is vomit. So for a proper listen to my lovely new set-up, check out Last Words or I Want You Dead.

It's currently instrumental because I don't like doing vocals. I shall do at some point, the song is meant to have them, but I'm tired right now and I want to go to bed.
If anybody wants to have a crack at doing them, please be my guest.

With regards to the quality, I'm willing to send anyone a sexy 320 bitrate version, just PM me your email or something.

This is one of my favourite songs from my old collection. It sounds pretty sexy. I wonder if the bass is a little too prominent? Enjoy!

UPDATE: 28/02/10: Vocals added. Album is nearly done, I'll post a download link here when it is (which should be Tuesday).

UPDATE: 03/03/10: ALBUM FINISHED! Download Scattered Fragments of a Past Forgotten, a collection of old songs by me re-recorded, including this song as well as 5 others, for free from here:

Lyrics:
Roaming the Earth, land of Pangaea
Brings devastation with every footstep
Helpless prey, the scent of blood fills its lungs

The land of blood, survival is a daily dance
Brutal existence
Predatory, disembowling beast of the past

Lightning fast, a creature of habit
Guts and eats its prey
Leaving only a skeletal carcass
Putrid, diseased

Gullet shredded, this creature lived so recently
Its flesh torn out rabidly, entrails strewn on the ground

Hunting the young, the weak who cannot run

Our world of blood and body-counts is blindingly similar
To a time where monsters reigned governmentless

Vicious beast, symbol of demise
The end will come from the sky

Nice to mosh on :'D

Jakisdead responds:

Shit yeah!
This would be a fun one to mosh to!

Damn man

If these are old as hell songs...I'd like to see what kind of shit you can put out now.

Heh. Pretty sick. As said below, the mix could be worked on a bit, making the guitars a bit more prominent. Other than that though...great work. I absolutely loved the breakdown halfway through the song!

5/5

Fav'ed

Jakisdead responds:

Haha thank-you, bro.

Yeah it does seem that I should boost the guitars a little. I'm glad you liked the breakdown! XD

freakin' awesome skillz

but i felt the drums were a notch too high... guitars were wicked but just not prominent enough.

I'd really like to hear another version with the guitars cranked a few notches... I'd almost have a go at this one (vox).

Fuck those guitars rock. Drums great too. Just need to fix the mix (in my mind/ears)

Jakisdead responds:

Thanks for the review, man! I'm glad you like ti overall, I shall experiment with the mix a little more!

And be my guest with regards to vocals!
