The only choice is war.

It took me days to compose and another day to add instruments and effects. Instruments were from RealStrat, Shreddage 2 & Stormdrum. I could be more impressive if I ever have Electri6ity...

Not bad, but not really good either.

the riffs are great, but the quality is lacking. there is just too much reverb and it isn't really hard enough to head bang too if that makes sense.

also, since you used VSTs it did sound stale.

overall though, your creativity is excellent. just work on your sound quality and learn how to mix a bit better.

Thank you for the review, it's very helpful. Thank you so much sir :). I think everyone is right, I should reduce the reverb to minimum in the future.

The mixing in this seems weird. Everything feels like its in the back and nothing is in the front standing out. Transition at the 0:40 mark was a bit odd. Are you playing guitar or did you program that? Nice playing if it was you. Drums could use some improvement too, they seemed rather random at times.
You have some good ideas, I like the main riff, but I think you need to work on your mixing skills so things sound clearer (I think that would help the most) and work on transitioning between sections a bit more as well.

:-[ This is what I'm afraid of, those who write criticisms without knowledge on the subject they write.

Anyway, thank you for the attempt of writing good criticism.
