This track is one of the few purposefully written tracks that I have managed to complete. All of it was written from scratch and performed with as few edits as possible.

I took inspiration for this track from my desire to create a Portal concept album, though the actual fleshing out of the story has yet to take place. Another part to this is that I just recently bought an Akai MPK25 which I wanted to test out.

Overall, I really like this track and hope you guys will too! ( Honestly was to excited to share this to double check my mix, I'll re-mix and master it with fresh ears.)

Please give feedback, its the only way I truly learn from my mistakes!

Thank You for Listening

Edit 1: Made it a bit louder


Very good man

This makes me think of Muse, with those electronics playing that melody. Until the guitars kick in, and it's a-rocking. Overall quite good, though it does sound a bit derivative at times.

Hey! Thanks for commenting!

I wanted to take an electronic approach to rock music, but ended up with a metal song, ha! I guess I cant get away from my roots after all. Next time will have a much more electronic influence.

Really I was just testing the waters; get a feel for what direction I should go in, though I do genuinely love this song. Also, it was a good excuse to try out a new toy!

Next time, It'll will be much more focused and with better riffs than those old, tired throwbacks I used for the heavy arpeggiated parts, ha!
