Perfect Storm

Having grown up in North Carolina, I have grown to love sounds and experience of summer storms. The sound as the rain starts pattering against the roof and picks up speed and intensity, the rumble of thunder as it rolls in from a distance, the lightning illuminating the sky periodically; I tried to capture the feeling of a night storm in this song.

This song is the product of 11 hours and 37 minutes of work, spread out over several months. Please take the time to give an honest, constructive review.

Thanks, and enjoy!

What an experience

i really like 0:35 to 0:46 and the parts before it but i don't like the rest of the song

As much as I love this song I feel like the standard techno beat didn't fit that guitar solo (2:11-2:40), drums could probably have gone a bit crazier on that part because it feels like they're just akwardly repeating the same pattern despite the clear spike in intensity. Talking about the guitar part, it also feels like some few notes are off key, but it also feels like it might have been done on purpose due to how chaotic that part is, so it's hard to criticize because maybe that was exactly the point.
That said, techno and trance get particularly well with the specific mental image of a storm at night and this song conveys is pretty nicely.
You probably don't even make music anymore at this point but whatever.

Nice!

there is nothing to criticize
