Fanatical, you really struck a vein of emotion here, this is really moving, I musn't lie, this is powerful. I really thought that all parts of this song were really interesting, involving and really piqued my interest.
That intro really thrust my attention assertively. I don't think I've ever heard your percussion assemby this involved in your tracks. Inside some of them, they're there in physical form, but not in soul or spirit. But here, they really have snagged a significant value. I don't know how you accomplished this with the drums, but you made it, congrats.
The details in this song make it's sum worth more than it's parts, with the filter fills, I thought that was a fantastic touch, it sent a chill through my body, but in a good way. Strange, it's 82 degrees outside, but I feel oddly chilly from this song.
When that break occurs, it shatters the mood to evoke more hollow and upsetting, angered senses. And even when that section stops and the song returns to its normal state, I love how there's a shard of that section being carried through via reverb. I know it's not quite something substantial to applaud, but it was a detail that I thought was just perfectly fitting.
The guitar tracks for the tranquil sections are definately quiet, but ambient, almost, being there, but on the fringes of the mix almost. I think that was some great mixing there, and I hope to see more of this!
It's those details.
Everything in this song makes it atmospheric, but those vocals really hit it on home. I never heard you sing like that, and I can see why. Respectively, only specific submissions should allow singing like this. It could do with more work, BUT, I still think the singing here was good. Although, a con to your singing is that I usually don't understand your vocals, as I kind of like this, it'd still be nice to know exactly what you're singing.
But, singing about being gone, I can relate, which is probably why I like this song so much, sitting with migranes, gone, I feel you too.
I must also say, this song really reminds me of Tool! I was listening to them not too long ago, and then I stumble across this, how uncanny. An interesting correlation between you and Tool are that your vocals both, come across as very symbolic and thought-provoking, probably why people don't understand either of you, and at first would easily write you off! I think that's a good deduction for today.
Keep it up, I look foward to it.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
