for each different riff/bridge/chorus/everything you do the exact same lick like 5 times with no change. repetitive even by rock standards. nice drum work though and nice job not going too heavy on the synth
Listen to post-hardcore, metal, or progressive rock and you'll see the same exact thing. This song does have vocals, but I prefer the instrumental version.
It more reminds me of Hammerfall.
Holy crap , that's so amazing , I can't stop to listening
The review below me is totally wrong.
Matthew, to be completely honest this is not my favorite style of music but I listened to it with an open mind and with consideration of your overall musical goal/purpose of creating this song. I am familiar with the musical styles of the bands they mentioned; In Flames, Lamb of God, and Dragonforce. Let me point out that the hardcore-rock parts during the beginning In Flames, the mixed polyrhythmic sections almost sound identical to Lamb of God's syncopated rhythms from their music and the harmonies, guitar melodies as well as fast paced music totally fits the style of Dragonforce's overall sound. Again, I read your author comments and you nailed it with flying colors. Zero Hour is really like you said; "A perfect track to really convey what metal is all about" Now, listening to things like Metallica that can get really boring, but this song has really exciting music mixed with all kinds of metal and rock! I'd love to hear more, do you have a website?
PS THE ONLY RESON IM GIVING THIS A 10
IS BEACUASE THE PERSON BELOW ME CAN SUCK IT.
BUT THATS IT!
I'm at a loss for words... Thanks for truly understanding what I'm trying to do here... My website is: www.matthewpablo.com and I pretty much laughed my ass off at the last part of your comment... Yeah that review was pretty off I think, but everyone deserves their opinions to be heard. Thanks again!
I dont think it sounds like In Flames, Lamb of God, or Dragonforce. The only part remotely interesting is at 3:34 which might remind someone of Dragonforce because it sounds like its played unbelieveable fast. Its not a bad song, its just that there's nothing that really stands out.
I really have to disagree with you because a lot of other people think this song sounds like those bands... Sorry for boring you so much.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
