I continue to be in awe
at the talent of the users of this website. everybody has something that they can do, and make video/art/music to show off to the world..
Well I'm glad I could be Newground's official representative for you! Haha. Glad you liked it :)
took a second run through to really get to liking it (loved it after). greatnees
Thanks dude. Hopefully sometime soon I'll have an awesome recording mic and can add in some sexy ass VoX.
The problem is the vocals are left out of any of the energetic moments, let alone most of the piece. They were beautiful, but leaving them to their own calm segment was too confining, like caging a songbird. As a result, the energy in the rest of the song just seemed like raw emotion without grace. In the segment from 3:05 to 3:20, I can faintly make out a high-pitch shredding. The problem is it's faint. A very talented composition, though. It slightly beckons the sound of Through the Fire and Flames by Dragonforce, which isn't my favorite song by far, but definitely respected for the guitarist's shred talent.
My original intention for this song was to add my own vocals in. Because I do not have a good recording microphone, however, I found that they detracted from what quality I already had. I originally wanted to layer the female vox over my own and have it be less of a one-time thing in it's own little part.
Yes, in 3:05 - 3:20ish I was just recording myself soloing over the piece that I had written up to that point, and didn't have any intention of adding it into the song. I did like how it sounded though, and so as a little kind of joke to myself I added it in very faintly at that point. With vocals it wouldn't even be noticeable unless you were listening extremely intently or already knew it was there.
Thanks for the awesome review. I really do enjoy it when I get good feedback like this. Definitely helps to improve my songwriting overall :D
I sure hope that's a good "Shock and Awe", because I'd rather not have it be a bad one where you're like "Goddamn what the HELL?!". But I'm guessing from your 10 review that it was good. So thanks!
dude your a guitar god! *bows*
I'm not really a GOD, I just have a lot of different techniques at my disposal. I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty good, but a lot of it you wouldn't be able to tell if I used a different type of distortion or didn't have good recording equipment.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
