Here's a nice metal song I wrote and recorded a while ago. Yeah, I messed up a few times, but I can't record again yet. Either way, enjoy this.


You demand respect?
What have you done?
Many lives you've wrecked,
But from the light you run!
Step back - go away!
Why are you still here?
Listen to what I say,
And to these words so clear!

Don't keep on pushin',
Or I will break!
I always win,
So stop for your own sake!
I'll wield my claws,
My Claws of Chaos!
Forget the laws,
This one will be your own loss!

Some things you buy,
Some things you earn,
And you ask why?
When will you learn?
I refuse to serve you
Or fall to false fear!
These words are true,
So you had better hear!

Don't keep on pushin',
Or I will break!
I always win,
So stop for your own sake!
I'll wield my claws,
My Claws of Chaos!
Forget the laws,
This one will be your own loss!

I'm piqued

This submission is pretty cool, I'm glad I gave it a chance, since there's some potential here that could really be molded into something real good.

I'll start with the instruments.

The overall flow of this song is really groovy. Even though there really isn't all too much complication in this song, it works just fine either way, since there's vocals. I follow the philosophy of allowing repetition when vocals are present.

There are a lot of low end frequencies present here. I mean it, it's evident in pretty much all the layers, but let me explain further. The bass EQing makes perfect sense; it's a bass after all, although in classic metal EQing of bass to mimic a guitar regularly is common. But here's the weird part, compared to the guitar, it's so much more pronounced.

There is no shame or issues with this, the guitar isn't a problem if it takes a back seat, but it just strikes to me that you did something to the EQing of the guitar to make it sit so far back and receded from the mix. I personally think that the guitar would benefit from being EQed with more attack and presence.

Now I like the sort of plop on the bass, but if it's going to come out, then the guitar should too, y'know? If you cannot re-record anymore, try acquiring some post recording equalizing equipment. That's what I usually end up doing.

Onto vocals.

Your vocals sound fine to me. They're really growly though. This causes some issues since usually singing tends to have some volume to it, body too. Growling, unless you get really good at it sounds a bit one-dimensional. I understand you added some effects too, that helps it retain some organic feel, that's good.

Growling tends to be quieter than singing, so either you need to growl louder or EQ it in some way to make it sound natural. Here it sounds a little like you added some fuzz onto the track and made it sound bassier. I don't know, since I can understand your vocals normally, but it just doesn't seem to be completely natural to you, so I guess I should stop ragging on you. Even after all I said though, they still sound fairly good though, they just need work though.

PS. I wouldn't mind working with you on collabs in the future. \m/
