I sensed all sorts of heavy metal genres including grunge
Ultimately I loved the insane drums and chunky riffs-I like the rough transitions...
p.s. having no vocals didn't stop me from headbanging to this track! \m/
I would have vocals but I have to find a decent vocalist and a good mic D: Thanks for listening!
sounds epic, maybe you should but some lyrics to it.
Thanks! I might if only I could find a decent vocalist that lives near me >.>
I like the riffage, the drum program sounds legit. But it doesn't sound clear. I don't know if that was intentional or not. But regardless, keep it up.
Thanks, I was going for a "sludgey" sort of production but will keep that in mind!
This track has IMMENSE potential!
At first I was a bit skeptical about whether this song would have enough twists and changes to keep me interested... Well, positively, it does a have a lot of interesting parts to it. Here's my complete critique: The first thing I noticed I didn't like was 2:38 to 2:51, that should be completely cut out. The effect at 2:51 completes that guitar riff, without that, it sounds horrible. 4:36 is a good riff, but kind of a rough transition. 4:55 is completely bad-ass and an amazing transition. Keeps sounding awesome until 6:00... Again, a gritty transition. Nothing really grabs my attention again until 7:24. 8 minutes of metal is definitely a pretty cool feat! This songs has a lot of sections that are expertly composed. This could easily be my favorite metal song, but there are some things I don't like. Maybe you could try using some panning or some other effect to peak the listeners interest and distinguish or emphasize between certain parts of the song. I know you are completely relying on guitars for this track, but if you look at it purely compositionally, I think adding some other string instruments (like violins) or some type of sound diversity would really enhance the song. Also, it is sludgey... I like the sound of the drums (great drum programming) much more than the tone of the guitar... 4/5 + 8/10. All in all, the majority of the song shows good creative and technical skill. You have strong talent for playing guitar and writing metal! Just keep pushing yourself!
PS. I am a new fan!
Thanks for the critique! To be honest I kind of just went from measure to measure while writing to be honest, I didn't pen any of it down I sort of just did it all in one go. Will keep some of those things in mind!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
