I would like to comment that this song uses both electronic as well as live instrumental elements. We feel like the two blended together quite well, but we would love your input.

Thanks for listening. Reviews are appreciated. :)

I Love it, :D

It Sounds amazing in my ears, though anything can be improved, and i looked below V to SkyeWintrest's comment, and people found it useless???? he's offering constructive criticism... jeez, but overall, im in love with this piece.

Thanks a lot! I'm glad you enjoyed it

Still good, but... still also meh.

I don't like how the guitar just vanishes at about 3:00, seems too sudden. Then it comes back in surprisingly. There also seems to be some distortion on the guitar.

The intro threw me for a loop. I thought it was at a completely different timing than it actually was.

Drums are good. The guitar is pretty good, aside from the distortion.

Some of the transitions could be improved, as well as the length of some of the sections. Some sections seem to just drag on and on...

The outro could use some work. It seems to leave a big empty patch, making me think, "Wait, it's over? I thought it would drag on for another 20 minutes."

The last thing I have to say is that it has the common failing of many songs in this day and age. It doesn't really have structure. It just "goes", without a real format like ABA, ABCA, ABACA, etc.

Honestly, I think you have a lot of potential, a lot of good ideas, but it needs more form. I'm still learning form, admittedly, but... this could be so much more.

Overall, to anyone who reads this, don't let it be said that this isn't worth your time. It most definitely IS worth your time. Everything can be improved, and it's always worth the time to listen and learn from mistakes, whoever makes them.

RunningShadows responds:

Thank you so much for your advice!

Delightful, good sir

beautiful soundscapes. The slow buildup of the drums is really cool. This is probably your best track. The samples are delightful, the beats are perfect to the melodies, the guitars matches really good.

From 3:00 and throughout that climax i got chills. its simply epic.

You are obviously one of the better composers here, keep it up

RunningShadows responds:

Thank you so much!

maybe i dont get the point

i just can´t hear any melody, is like just random stuff. BUT, i´m maybe hearing this from the wrong side, this maybe is intentional, to be a creepy song. anyway, the quality is really good. but don´t give up, is just my opinion
