This song was written by my friend and I. We both hopped on this track and tore it up for the most part. simple enough song. specially for my friend who's been playing for alittle over a year...not consistently though so this is really good for his skill level. anywho...enjoy!

So this was pretty nice I like the metal you put out you seem to always make some top quality stuff and with this piece it was just some solid work indeed some added vocals would really complete this I would think but regardless of all that you have I'm presenting me with your energy in this and effort for a great metal you are becoming one of my favorites in this metal style so keep up the amazing work


Metalcore? Now we're talking
This is your best one since Digital Terror

was pretty good, liked the breakdowns. could use vocals, but it'd be cool if you guys started a band! reminds me of a harder coheed and cambria lol

Can i use this for my fighting game that im working on ?

Sure. go for it.

I couldnt agree more with Schleif that it needs some vocals, this song is kinda stuck between purposes.
If this is meant to be a song to complement a scene in a movie, a game or an anime it is very good indeed, i think it would be awesome in an anime fight. On the other side as a standalone song i don't thing it varies enough to endure 4:44 minutes.
The mixing is awesome and the guitar sound really sweat and heavy!
One complain i have is that part at 3:45, the transition to that part is pretty poor and sudden, overall just sounds too strange, the keyboard is also a bit too loud and uninteresting in that part.
Just another thing, it was probably out of distraction but the ending is a sudden cut, fade away endings are not bad, but the sudden cut is horrible.
Overall its a great song with awesome mixing Ritz!
