This is the ONLY full track I'm putting up from my upcoming album. It's the first track and intro to the album. I worked hours on this, hope i did ok, leave reviews, and screw zero bombers..,.yeah i know you're stalking me >:(


I think what mormonPUNK meant by strain was

Just the amount of sound you have going on here. The saw at the beginning is a bit overbearing, and the percs are just getting lost in the mix. This song is, conceptually, badass as it can be. I love anything that combines a nasty sound with clean strings and piano, and it sounds to me like that's what you were going for. Unfortunately, there are some rather serious compression, EQ, and even volume issues here. I don't presume to try and write somebody's song for them, but this one needs a mastering overhaul.

Mastering aside, the progression of this is, for the most part, tits. The strings have a furious sound to them that keep the chaotic feel without adding excessive noise. The piano interlude is cool, but it feels a little out of place. Instead of introducing it bit by bit, like you did with the strings, it just sort of pops up. Again, not to hijack your song, but maybe try adding some keys to the beginning? Or hell, even shift that interlude to the beginning, gradually add the claps, and go from there?

I realize I'm getting repetitive in saying this, but mastering this song should be priority one, especially if it's your album's hook. Best of luck with the album!

Awesome intro

this wuz a great intro, mor in detail sounds lyk itd b a good intro the only reason y i mark a point off is cuz the beggning is too hectic, mayb a slow start to a random hyper speed woold b nice

RealFaction responds:

Well I thought it was slow, but hey it's hectic because im crazy lol. Thanks.

I can definitely appreciate the talent, but it's a bit of a strain on the ears. hope I can get the chance to hear the rest of the album tho
