Well, here it is!
The Metal Coat theme

Its still a WIP
but this will do

Please tell me if this actually matches the description of Metal Coat :o

heres the description
Shop owner later turned protagonist. Suffice to say he has a slightly creepy aura about him just by the way he looks, but he's not actually that bad - just extremely blunt, cynical and pessimistic. He'll often comment on the cliches of others to the extent of breaking the fourth wall. He's a prick, to put it bluntly, and one loaded to the brim with mechanical weaponry at that. ``

Great work

The intro with the synth constantly going up and down sounds pretty good actually and then the industrial drums and wah wah sound make this sound like an incredible piece of work as well to where I love it too much. The overall flow seems to be loud and chaotic as well. Deeply reminds me of some Ristar where the final boss took me forever to figure out since that thing was no easy task to take out.

This beat is just awe inspiring and awesome to say the least. Really like how this one turned out. Great job on it!!

Yeah that's the machine gun man!

Hey dj-Jo,

Mostly fabulous. The drums were crisp and clean, the synths light and moving. The bass was rocking. All was fine, except for the general noise accompanying every kick. I realise that this was a stylistic choice that you made, but for me, it could have been made more subtle, so that rather than dominating the music, it complements it.

I like that this song describes a person or character, and you do it quite well. The loud banging parts highlight his badass-ery, and the quiet synth parts are the moments before he "breaks the fourth wall", as you say. It's sorta like he's saying "And what you gonna do about it, huh?". That's what I gathered anyway, I hope it fits :)

I like the style of dubstep employed. It wasn't just all tuneless bass, like some do. It had a nice progression with strings and different high synthesisers to lead up to the climax. It was very mechanical, much like his weaponry he is loaded to the brim with.

--Wow Factor--
Overall very surprising. This brings amazement with it, as soon as it pops after quiet parts. It's very satisfying and not disjointed at all. Everything flows nicely and you aren't left at any moment feeling "WTF?" It all flows beautifully.

--Personal Tilt--
I'm not a huge dubstep fan, but I liked this. This was very nice and bass-light for the genre, but without reducing the intensity. The drums were glitchy enough to keep things interesting, but not hog the spotlight. Overall, I would say job well done. Thanks for letting me listen.

--Production-- = 16/20
--Experience-- = 16/20
--Style-- = 16/20
--Wow Factor-- = 17/20
--Personal Tilt-- = 16/20
