This is the first song I've completed in months. It took me a few hours to make and when I started working, I was actually making a drum beat for another song, but I put distortion on that shit and I just took off like a wizard.

The feel I was trying to achieve was something that was just plain bad ass. I ended up making something that reminds me of Rob Zombie, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir and Yume Nikki, the last of which was my muse for the name of this song. During production though, I was thinking about Dimmu Borgir and Rob Zombie, it wasn't until the end that I realized how much it reminded me of Yume Nikki.

It's a good bit repetitive, as I am still quite unfamiliar with how to correctly use FL Studio 9. If I were more in tune with how to use it then there'd be more variation in the song. Alas, I didn't want to make a short lived song so I made it 3 minutes long.

If you use this for some shit, remember to give me credit!

(Also, fuck .mp3s)

EDIT: Hey guys, I updated the song a bit by adding in a new part and making it a bit shorter. I might do one more thing before claiming it as finished, so wait for that!


I like what you have here...

Although I can only stand the drum beat for 1 minute... After that it just hurts!

Hmm, that sucks for you. It's kind of like where you know veggies are good for you, but you don't like them, but since they're good for you you wish you did like them.


Rhythm? have it or you don't?

Most of the start didn't sound like much of a beat sadly. Then it starts to slowly sound like it might be a beat of some kind.

The drums sound very strange and chaotic to me. Almost as if someone was just banging away at random notes trying to produce a good song. Also kind of makes you think of a factory too.

The choir sounds quite pleasing anyways. Then you got a slight synth sound in there too. Then altogether it slowly forms a very chaotic beat of sorts anyways.

Overall, probably not the best you have done right?

Naw, I thought that beat out. To me it sounds very much so like a beat, with a clear structure, it's just not your average beat.

No, it's not my best, but if I had added variations and junk, it'd be much better.

Very chaotic

Really creepy and ominous, like the final hallway before the big boss. A really dreading, forboding feel. Your instrument choice works really well to enhance it.

The drums are a bit too loud and chaotic, they drown out the rest of the instruments. I suppose that's what you were aiming for, but turn down the drums a bit. Also, it gets really repetitive, I feel that this could probably be condensed to a little over a minute.

Keep it up!

Not a bad piece at all, a bit messy, but that somewhat adds to the feel you were going for, something bad ass and menacing.

I feel that the title of the song works well with the actual track itself. Really well, as a matter of fact.

The rhythmics are really messed up, which fits the setting, but they do get repetitive after some time. The song in genera is a bit repetitive, though the ambient synths, what sounds like choiring in the back, keeps it fresh throughout. The high-pitched synth is really perfect for the track and the feel.

Not sure why it was put in the Video Game category, though, maybe more of an Industrial feel to it, to be honest.

Rahmemhotep responds:

Yeah, it's really repetitive and I wanted to do more with it, but I can't work FL Studio as well as I'd like to, so it ended up being a looping thing that would be good for a video game, "OH MY GOD THE CASTLE IS COLLAPSING AND WE HAVE TO GET OUT FAST!" sort of scene.

Another thing is that the music in Yume Nikki is almost all short loops, with a few exceptions. This fact makes it even more reminiscent of the game. If you look up what Yume Nikki is, it might help you understand what this song means to inspire.
