neat tune. I really dig the riff. its one of those things where you can do lots of shit with it and keep the song going for a long while.
but yeah. the only few problems I have with this track is that your distortion effects were peaking. at some points while I was listening I've noticed some crackling there. gotta keep your eye out on your mixer!
also, not a big fan on the percussion. sounds like you just picked a preset kit and went along with it.
IMO, at the end it felt like it was cut short. I think letting that bell play for longer with those effects would be really cool. and then you can kick in that riff again.
overall, this track feels very unfinished. you got really cool ideas, but it sounded like you didn't put a lot of time in it.
keep at it mate.
I know there was some crackling in the beginning, but that wasn't from the guitar riff. I unplugged the chord and used it to make a crackling effect. I thought it fit the mood of the song to throw that in there.
I will agree though that I didn't really put in too much effort on the percussion. This is an older song of mine and I had that tendency back then.
It's really cool. The guitar is in great rhythm, and there is nothing to complain about.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
