I often wonder what America would have turned out like if its native citizens would have been able to hold their land. If they were allowed their own birthrights. If the actions of our ancestors didn't result in the near extermination of people native to this land and the traditions they pass on to the next generation.

White guilt.


Really nice bro, it's a really powerful beat it sounds awesome

TheHeartgrinder responds:

Much thanks to you Sir.

What would have happened is Spain would have pushed up from the south or France would have pushed down from the north and the same thing would have happened :/

Spanish Guilt ahoy?

5/5 and AL THE STARS!

To the victor goes the spoils.

Thanks and I'm glad you enjoyed.

It's good, but I can't help but feel there's something missing. I don't know what that something is, but the whole time I was listening, the song felt hollow. Some low, subtle vocals in the background might help to fill it out. There were also points (especially around 04:15) where it sounded really grainy, and that kind of disrupted the sound for me.

But overall, I like it. A good balance of sounds, a nice melody, and definitely has that dark industrial vibe. I'll have to check out some of your other work.

TheHeartgrinder responds:

I hate to admit that I use compression as a crutch. Slowly but surely, my technical skill is catching up with my imagination.

I'm toying around with live instruments and clear vocal samples these days. Expect a creative shift soon.

This is different~
I can't say I'm familiar with giving music reviews but...
I genuinely enjoyed this track. not to mention your thought provoking comment~
It's a wonderful thing to stumble across people who happen to show so much pride in their cultures, amongst many things.

I might end up checking out more of your music, but either way good luck with your continued creations~

I think I should make it clear that on a genetic level, I'm mostly white. The only Native American physical features I have is the inability to grow body/facial hair and I tan well. This piece of music was inspired by the decision of my family to keep this part of our history hidden away as if some terrible secret. I feel deprived of my heritage because of this.

I'm glad you enjoyed.

The little bit of drums made it... Powerful, if it didn't have those drums, it would have felt really plain.
Really nice job on this one.

It kind of needed to be plain in order to set a proper mood and make certain parts more alive without making it too busy. I'm glad you liked it.
