Nikoli here, we just restarted doing work again, and what better way to do so than to write an epic tale?

Soon I will have a flash animation about this, but let me get you up to speed.

Nikoli Bearcrusher and Kedall Stronghorse are two vikings. Not just any vikings, but vikings of a new age. After a glorious raid of wal-mart, the are forced to battle the mighty Walkarv-Marketta, and an epic battle ensues that will forever immortalize the two vikings as Demi-Gods. The Final crushing blow is delivered by Nikoli, as he plunges Walkarvs hands into his own jaw and rips his head appart. Nikoli is awarded the Sword of Walkarv Marketta.

With nothing left for them in their land, Nikoli and Kedall climb on their newly aquired motor cart horses and ride until they deem fit to stop. They ride through blistering winters and scowling deserts until something odd seems to come about. A storm on the horizon of the desert, and in the distance, a tank, and a pirate ship are seen. The storm seperates the two, and an epic battle ensues. Thus, I give you, The Greatest Story Never Told. Part 1, The Decent into Glorious Battle

Not bad, not good yet.

That was a really ambitious effort, it took me by surprise. However, it's a little over-ambitious. You're attempting techniques and styles that are hard to emulate without the right equipment and technology. The end result sounds amateurish and sloppy. When listening to your favorite performers and artists, bear in mind that most of the music you hear doesn't find its way to your ears until it has been produced and mastered to near-perfection. That, unfortunately, is why your music can't sound like theirs. Don't let that discourage you, though.

The song itself was a little tedious and hard to listen to. There's potential here that is probably not being used the most effectively on something like this. If you tried your hand at something less complex and worried less about sounding like something you're not, you might find that you're happier with your output.

Thank you for taking the time to give a thought out review. I really appericiate your words and will take them to heart. We may have gotten a little over ambitious, and we are still new to mixing in a sence. We have better equipment coming in, it sounds a lot better live honestly.

We didn't want to over use potential, as far as complicated riffs etc, as this is only the first part in the saga we wanted to just give people a taste, and not the full amount just yet, so because of this a lot of the song was cut. Which may have not been the best way to go about it, but it's all still a working progress. I wanted to post it here to get feedback on our rough copies before we went ahead and paid for studio time, ya know?

Once again, thank you very much for taking the time to review, and I look forword to hearing from you again in the future on our later installments.
