Here's a lovely little new song. The first proper song recorded with my lovely new RG7321.

I've been really struggling to write decent metal riffs lately, so I thought I'd write some more happy, nice stuff. I suppose this could be classed as The Sky-Man, pt. 2.. It's an interesting blend of Progressive Metal/Djent and dreamy, melodic stuff. I officially name this new genre 'Thereishopecore'.

Please feedback, I want to know whether Thereishopecore is going to get anywhere XD

Oh and if you like this, check out my channel at

I'll be doing a play-through of this song within next few days.

Happy metal DOES exist!

The last time I heard something this heavy and primarily in major, I wanted to gouge my eyes out with a fork that was dipped in a lake of toxic snozberries in which a Hungarian sasquatch used to birth a grey oozing mass of dandruff clutching a signed photo of Conway Twitty. Now, I actually feel happy! You have succeeded in combining heavy metal with happiness and have mindF^%$ED me in the process.

Great job.

P.S. I don't suppose you would tell me how to get that ownage sevendusty tone?

Jakisdead responds:

Haha dude, that is a BRILLIANT comment! XD
I'm glad that you've enjoyed it and that I've succeeded in enlightening you!

Tone-wise, I use an Ibanez RG7321 through a Line 6 Pod UX2 with the metal expansion thing. If you happen to have a Pod UX2, I can post my tone files on MediaFire for you to download! PM me if this is the case!

Thanks for the review!

Really like this.

It IS kind of dreamy. I really like the sound of the guitar. Kind of a happy theme without becoming stupid like pop music.
Ugh.
I really like this.

Jakisdead responds:

Haha, thanks man!
I'm glad you like the toone!

Thanks for the review!

Pretty nifty

I WANT THAT DAMN TONE! xD

Heh, anyways. I like the direction your heading in with the Djent style. The riffs were soothing and kick ass at the same time. Also, you ended the song quite perfectly, i may say.

However, the cons in my opinion. The melody just seemed a tad bit repetative, I was interested but not enough to put the score up to a ten. I'd recommend more "technical" riffs, i think they would enhance the power of this song. If you haven't heard this band, go listen to After the Burial, that is a band im pretty sure you could get some cool ideas and influence off of, as well as some bands like Volumes or Rooks. I like the direction you're going and i cant wait to hear more!

5/5

Jakisdead responds:

Hey man, thanks for the review!

Haha thank-you very much! I'm glad you liked the ending! :D

I get what you mean about the melody, and looking back over the 'nicer' songs that I've done, that chord progression is kind of a reocurring theme that needs to be changed! >.< I actually ordered ATB's new album the other day, should be coming for me soon!
I know Volumes but I shall check out Rooks!

Thanks again man, and I just found your PM so I'll go check out your new song now!

yo yo

it is more Punk then metal so you may needa change that but anyways it's great :D good job

Jakisdead responds:

Hey, thanks for the review. I understand what you mean, it's not exactly heavy, but it does feature various elements of metal such as the unusual time signature and deep tuning.

If you want heavy, check out some of my other stuff!
