Yeah, I can't tell you how much you perfectly nailed that Metroidesque vibe. Has a very nice atmospheric sound, and there's a lot of detail and plenty going on that I think it really doesn't get repetitive. The beat at 2:10 is very nice, I wish it was just a tide wider, and maybe also a little lighter, I don't know. I guess you don't really want to call attention to anything in your song. The piece also grows in a very organic way, like I said, what you were attempting to do, it seems you did exceptionally. I am totally exploring dark space caves listening to this. Maybe this wasn't intentional, but it also seems to be lacking in the higher frequencies making it perfectly suited to be accompanied by a game's sound effects. And it loops like a dream, what more could you ask for. So yeah, 5/5, Also I scouted you and Fan'd you. Keep doin good work.
Oh man, I don't know why I took so long to respond to this! I actually thought I did at one point, heh... ^^;
Thanks so much, man! I'm glad you thought it did the Metroid vibe justice! Actually, the lack of higher frequencies wasn't me predicting the need for SFX; I worked on it to the SFX of a game, so that came basically as a result of that. xD
I'll make sure to take your thoughts into account if I ever update this song, because I was thinking maybe the drums could use a bit of fine tuning, as well. I feel a bit dumb for asking the question, but what exactly do you mean by "wider"? Varied, panned a bit further, or something else?
By the way, thanks so much for the scout! <3
