Oh my god. Metal is hard work. So much multitracking/layering/re recording. 14 (!!) layers of guitar, 2 layers of bass, 2 drum kits and then some.



Yes i like that riff!!! at 0:29

good stuff at 1:30 Make it longer :)
10/10 5/5

Please return the favor on my work in progres: Instagroove (wip)

Pretty bitchin'.

I love the simple riffs. They're pretty meaty and effective.

I can't really give you any crit other than the fact that the song is too short and it would need vocals to shine on its own since there's no melody carrying the song.

I like the synths you used here. It reminded me of Mission Impossible for some reason, despite being entirely different.

If you could make this longer and add some vocals, it's be REALLY good.

Keep it up. Got a question for you though. Why in the world would you need 14 layers of guitar?

SantaBro responds:

Can't sing, don't know anyone who can, so that sucks :) I think there is indeed a melody there- the riff. I think that'll be the most recognizable part of the song, even if I put something melodic in there. I can make it longer though.

As for the layers of guitar... It's to get a huge tone basically. Same reason you use a choir or an ensemble. I like to record the main riff 4-8 times, pan each layer a bit differently, send them through different guitar amplifiers and stuff. This time I went with 8. Creates a nice thick and punchy sound but it's hard work. Then I went a bit overboard and added an additional four layers of the same riff one octave above. And then in the last half of the song I added two more layers for the "solo" kinda part.

Thanks much for the review.
