Please master this song. This is iPod-worthy.
Personally, I'm loving this version! Old or not, it's giving me the feel of good classic metal/rock. Damn good. If you ever make more, be sure you'll have at least one fan who'll love it.
Wow. Just got to the acoustic end...sounds to me like another song entirely. It's good standing alone. Keep it and make another song using it maybe? Anywho, still great!
Thanks man, glad you like this version as well! It does have a classic rock feel to it, doesn't it? The thing I'm gonna try to do in future songs is bring out them drums. I think I've finally figured out a few new mastering & EQing techniques, but we'll see. I'm glad you at least enjoyed this one man! =)
What can I say...
...I love me some metal! This is great man! I am really enjoying this.
I like the riffs and the flow of the song a lot. It really melds together quite well. You have a solid mix going here with the guitars and drums for sure, which is crucial. I think you could bring out the bass in the mix a bit, cause I'm not hearing much bass at all. I think I hear it hiding in there, but I could be mistaken. :-P
Now my one major dislike was the flanger on the one guitar. I don't know why, but I personally didn't dig that in this song. That is personal opinion though, I'm sure you can take it or leave it for what it is worth easily enough. Despite that I loved this little tune quite a bit.
5/5 and 9/10 overall.
Thanks for the feedback broski, I always love me some feedback! =) Yeah, there was a point where I thought the flanger was a bit much. Honestly, I was working with a new piece of equipment, so I didn't know how to take it off, but I don't think it really detracts from the song all that much. However, I respect your opinion; you can't please everybody with EVERYthing after all!
As for the bass, I'm gonna look into that. I think the main reason that I didn't turn up the bass more is cuz, while producing this song, there were points where the bass was EXCESSIVELY loud, and it really pissed me off cuz the bass is not typically a lead instrument, like, EVER. So, I had to do some research and find the bass's niche in the mix. It took a while, but I think I may have POSSIBLY found it. Now, the problem is that it's TOO quiet, so I'm gonna have to check that out. I think a lot of it has to do with the way the bass was played as well. Maybe if I brought it up a little in the mix, and then made it harmonize better with the guitar? Not entirely sure yet, but I'm gonna have to do some experimenting. Also, boiling the strings might help; the strings on the bass are so dead atm lol =P
Thanks again for your review, much appreciated! And gl in the NGADM man! =)
Has an awesome drive.
Its kinda cool and relaaxing in its on way, reminds me alot of Iron Maiden, wich for me is a very good thing.
Hell yeah, I love Iron Maiden! Glad you liked it man. This is the first truly everything-recorded track that I've ever done and pulled off to sound good. I've been attempting this thing since I was like a sophomore or junior in high school, and about 3 years later I finally got the sound I was looking for. I'm gonna see if I can mix this in with some redankulously awesome DnB stuff, cuz NOBODY who submits DnB to NG adds guitars! It's sad! =`(
Anyway, thanks again man, and I hope the site's doin well! =)
You know what i find weird? I didn't quite mind this song, yet i HATE this genre. Sounds a bit like the bg music of Dynasty Warriors 6 when i think about it too xD Some bits anyway :)
I can't quite help with the mastering problem/dilemma, but good luck with it, and hope it all works out :D
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
