usually i dont like music accompanied by that kind of vocal but strangely this one had good music and the vocals seem to have some kind of exquisiteness in it combined with the music almost like someone was chanting within the underworld i could actually feel this one like it could go good in a movie
Glad you liked it :)
Pretty good all around.
I thought that the vocals and instruments had a nice ratio of volume even though some people thought the lyrics should have been louder. If you simply turn your speakers way up it sounds like it's in the right spot.
I love heavy metal, but I don't think that this is my style at all. I love screaming, but this sounds more like I'm a emo and I can growl and scream and my life is so bad that I'm going to turn to Satan and hate mankind type of bull crap music, but I won't let my joy of life and music preferences effect the score.
The instruments themselves were very good, but there was really never that one specific part where the guitar blew my mind out or anything like that. It was kind of conservative in my mind. I already commented on how I thought the lyrics and vocals were kind of whiny and emo like, but again I can't let judgment effect my score since I'm reviewing on quality.
There's just something about the vocals that tells me this isn't quite here even though I haven't heard black metal like this before. I think the vocals can be improved slightly, but I don't know how.
Hm, I guess that's all I have to say. I added it to my favorites because I knew I wanted to come back to review it, but it really isn't one of my favorite audio submissions. I'll probably keep it there though for future reference. Keep on working.
This is nowhere near emo. I am the anti-emo.
And whiny how? It's about a man who's oppressed by society and then becomes depressed. His depression then leads him to anger and rage.
And of course everything can be improved. I'm not in a professional studio and I do all my own work, I don't know all the tricks and secrets of a professional studio, but I try my best.
Anyway, thanks for the review. :)
Alright, so... Guitar is great, rythym is great, and the song carries a very nice tune, and I like how different this song is compared to others of this genre... But I'm sorry that voice just creeps me the fuck out, and I started cracking up throughout the song because I thought Smeegal (spelling?) from Lord of the Rings was singing. If the vocals were heavy and deep I think this song would really come together nicely but... that voice just... makes my skin crawl... maybe that's what you were going for, I don't know but... it is creepy as hell.
Black metal has high-pitched growls. I can't really record low pitched growls with my current set up. And yeah, I've gotten that Smeagle comment before :D
Great but one thing
I'm down with raw black metal production and thought the riffs and song structure were great. However, I think the vocals could do with a lot less reverb. They sound detached from the rest of the music, despite having a good black metal tone and pitch.
Yeah, I ruined most of my older stuff with too much reverb on vocals >.<
But I'm starting to get better :)
This is totally black, i mean, the blackness literally come out of my speakers.
Your vocals are pretty strange, what kind of effects have you used on them?
Cool job man!
I doubled them at first, added some EQ and some reverb, that's about it :P
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
