Leaving without the truth
as the shadows make their move

waiting for the end to take it's time
as we watch the ships go by

This time I decided to go for a dubstep song some where in between chillstep and brostep. Also, the words in the song where supposed to be lyrics, but it turns out I can't sing xD

This soundtrack made me smile in a way. It surpised me how varied the melodies are.
But I dont really believe its chillstep. I dont feel the chill in it. Tih is more on the Electronic DNB.

I like the glitchy effects in this one with the melody, though I will say parts felt empty at times. Definately interesting though. Though I feel I've heard a lot of stuff like this, still a good tune, but could use work, but good job.

Here we have one that not falls in the stereotypical skrillex type dubstep. "The chords of life" in the intro is a failsafe synths in electronic. Also good use of chords goes always a extra plus in my book. The main thing i notice is the syncoped main theme. As a pianist, I like that a lot! The ending falls a bit abrupt. And mix could have a small boost in the high frequencies. Add some distortion in terms of a exciter maybe.. ? Anyway, I listened to all the entries and your song in my opinion is within the top 17.5 at least! good luck!

*sniff* " It's like a mirror into Scruffy's soul!"

It's climactic and catchy, with some cool instruments to go along! :D I love the melody at :57, and the instrument you used for it gives the track a video-game sort of feel to it. I wish it progressed a little faster, though, especially at the beginning. Dubstep isn't really my favorite genre, but I like the part at 2:20 a lot, as well as the lyrics, although there's not a lot of passion in your voice. It's smooth-flowing and well-structured, and overall solid piece. ;)

Ah thanks for the review (:
And it did seem a little slow to me at first but I decided to keep this way
Hmm, maybe I should said those lines a little better hah well at least you didn't get hear me sing. Oh man, i'm glad I kept the lyrics said instead of sang xD my voice is a disaster haha

Thanks again for reviewing TheDoor6
