This is a remake of an old song of ours. This song is myserious yet captivating. While we used mostly electronic elements including a real synthesizer, we also used a little bit of acoustic guitar.

Rate review and most of all enjoy!



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Thought I might as well review this.

Hey, I reviewed both of your other songs on this account, why not this one?

First impression: Awesome beat. That made me get hooked on the song almost immediately. The guitar is amazing as well, it has such a feel with the delay on it. I like the layering in the first minute, barely detectable under the guitar, but slowly rising...

Second impression: At 1:25, I LOVE the chording there. I was a bit disappointed at the same guitar at first, then heard the transition with the one high note in the guitar, and that honestly made me feel really good. Awesome, man! Though, the organ randomly coming in at 2:01 felt wrong. You really had a groove going right before though, which was awesome. I like how the beat is similar to the beat before, but slightly different.

Third impression: At 2:58, I was bored. It just kept going, and there wasn't much change in it. While it still has a groove, it's been having the exact same chording throughout the whole thing, and is just kind of meh. The ending was FAR too sudden, something I noticed in your other songs as well. You seem to have a liking for just playing a single note on the guitar and reverbing it out. While this can work a few times, it gets boring to hear the same thing over and over. Try having a bit more of an ending that isn't so sudden and brick-wall-ish.

Overall impression: Good good. Worth a listen. Sounds kind of like your other songs in style, though that's to be expected, I guess. Try varying it up a little bit though. I know you can make a song out of each idea, but try varying the ideas and putting in some more structure in your songs, having at the very least an A-B-A or even better, theme and variation (I think this would more fit how you make music).

Hope this helps in the future, good luck!

Thanks, it does seem like we have the habit of repeating ourselves

Great song

I like it because it is so nice and relaxing. The guitar mixes very well with the other sounds you have added. However, it could use some more harmonic parts, in with the guitar. Too many things are unconnected, if you get what i mean. But overall, this is rather nice.

RunningShadows responds:

Thanks so much for the review! I agree, it could use more layers.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


just wow. When the guitar came in it was absolutely perfect. I love the atmosphere in this song. Its so tranquilizing. I especially like the part around 1:30 where the beat evolves and gets a bit more tight. This is beautiful. the synths somewhat reminds me of porcupine tree music and mixing with electric drums might be risky, but hell you made it through.

tl;dr Fucking sweet, this is going on my iPod

RunningShadows responds:

I'm glad you like it! This is one of the first songs in which we blended electronic elements with live recorded elements. It's good to see that it was successful.

It's going on your ipod? I am honored!

Well, here's what I think.
You've got the right idea, because I know that if this song was perfectly mastered, I'td go on my ipod - I love the overall feel/vibe of this.
If you're using FL Studio, which I believe you are judging by some of the drumsI hear - look in to how to sidechain with Gross Beat. Sidechaining your synths can really change a song (for the better). As for the guitar, I personally think it sounds a bit too loud in comparison to everything else. Mastering. Listen to the song over and over and over and over again. Listen to it to the point where you'll be able to know every flaw you want to fix (Including raising + lowering volumes).
Okay, now for the drums.
They sound really weak in my opinion. Layering, layering, layering and mixer effects. Pick multiple drum sounds - hell, avoid FL Studios presets - find samples of sites like freesoundloops. Tweak them to your liking, and then layer them. Then put them in a mixer channel and add shittons of effects onto them. Stereo enhancer. Stereo shaper. Sound Goodizer. Bass boost. etc etc. Download vsts of the interwebz, too - like bitcrusher, or ohmicide. They're all useful.
Anyways, that's the best advice I can give you. Good luck and keep up with the music :D Practice + Experience = Professionalism

pretty damn good

Its fairly good, I like the choice of sounds. The quitar was pretty good and it had a fairly nice beat. Its mysterious and very calm, it also has a very ambient feel to it. I personaly think it may do better under a different genre than Misc, but the genre doesnt make the song. One of the biggest problems I find in a lot songs is the repetitiveness of them, this song however didnt have that problem. It had many transitions which stopped it from getting repetitive or boring so a pretty good job on your behalf.

Overall a really good song, favourited 5/5 and 10/10

RunningShadows responds:

Thanks so much! Mysteriousness blended with ambient was certainly the goal, good to see that you found it. I'm glad you enjoyed!
