Just happened to stumble across this and I personally thought it was great. Though, I do agree with FrameWork regarding the lack of heavy bass. Although I think the tempo is just fine where it is. Increasing the tempo will throw off the orchestra at the end. Doesn't need to be hardcore to be epic.
Pleasing to the ear, definitely gives that feeling of a war between heaven and hell. Maybe the climax could be a little more... Climatic. Increasing the bass & maybe switchin the beat up a touch would probably help there. Just my opinion though.
Still. Awesome work!! 9/10 5/5 & downloaded.
I know how you feel!
Lol, getting no reviews suck, that why when you mentioned this song I decided to check it out and review it :D I'm nice like that.
Anyway, I don't know what you are using right now, but if you want to make more of this genre, I seriously recommend 'blutonium boy sample pack', it has vocals, bass drums, bass line, some example leads!
You made need to EQ the main synth (turn up the bass) to make it sound more epic. The actual hardstyle bit was bit short and there was a to bigger gap inbetween the orchestral and the main melody. And finally the tempo needs to be faster.
So all in all improving! Please check out my hardstyle track!
Thanks for reviewing. Will do with your work.
- I do agree that something was lacking with the lead, even though I couldn't put my finger on it. I probably edited out too -much- low freq to make room for the sub-bass. I'll keep that in mind.
- I would say "to each his own" on the tempo, but I can't deny that it does help with some hardstyle tracks.
This is all duly noted. I'm putting the utmost effort into my next nu-style track. Thanks again.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
