This one was fun to write. I got to use different chord progressions from what I usually use, and the guitar riffs were fun to write. I didn't create a drum part, but I might consider creating one at some point. It's not bad without a drum part, though.

PLEASE let me know what you think, and rate honestly! Criticisms welcomed! :)

If only all dreams could inspire something this beautiful.

I loved the steady beat. And the way the music built up towards the ending.
I never knew heavy metal could make me feel anything like that. I cant get it out of my head but I really dont mind. Im loving it.

Thank you so much! This comment made me feel really fab. :3 I'm so glad you enjoyed the music!

Great composition. But... I'm never a fan of Submissions that are fake guitars and listed under Heavy Metal. Heavy Metals most important instrument is GUITAR! A REAL ONE! Anyways... I really really like this. Reminds of a bit of Children of Bodom and Nightwish. The guitar should be also louder. And I love to hear some percussion in this!
Good job.

Until I can find band members (only have a pianist/songwriter and vocalist so far) I just make all of my compositions on FL studio so it's kinda hard to get real-sounding instruments. Hopefully one day that will change! Also, I'm glad that it reminded you of Nightwish because I got a lot of inspiration from them.

Thanks for taking the time to review!

It's not bad. For what I hear it's not particularly substantial, even if it had drums. There's no particular hook but saying that, it could be a good building block for something more. The glockenspiel/music box sound has some very high frequencies in there and while they don't hurt the ears they are audible and mess with the brain a bit. EQ and reduce the treble and it would be better.

musicislight2 responds:

Like I said above, I compose on FL studio, and not having any sound production/engineering knowledge I do fall short in that I can't really fix any of the problems you've just described.

Thanks for the review. :)
