Yes, it's been a while. I've taken a good long break, and come back with some of my best work to date.

Chunkyness, Meatyness, Pies, FURY.

The robotic metal begins.

Edit: Uploaded a new tighter mix :)

Good to know I've converted a non-metal head! Thanks bro and welcome to the dark side! \m/

Excellent mixing man. This was one of the better metal auditions. The guitars sound positively menacing, and the drums have a lot of oomph in them. You used the compression very tastefully as well, since it wasn't too much to have the instruments compete and create a mess of sound, but was still there to give the instruments the power they need. Your riffs are solid, your playing is good...

...so why wasn't this accepted into the NGADM? I can't speak for the other judges, but personally if I were to criticise it, I'd mention what MetalRenard said. This needs better melodic content. There were other excellent metal artists like Braiton whose audition had great production value like your track had but at the same time had good composition. This has flawless production, but lacked in the composition department.

Apply your production skills to some strong melodic content and you'd have a winner in your hands.

PirateCrab responds:

Thanks a lot for the critique Step, it's muchly appreciated.

This song was written with vocals in mind which is why it lacks melodic content, I'm actually producing the vocals right now haha. Knew I should have chosen a different song!

You'll be seeing me next year fella don't you worry!

Freakin' awesome!! I just don't understand why they don't take this one to round 1!!!
I guess the little fairies aren't ready for metal eh?

Thumbs up!

PirateCrab responds:

Many thanks dude! Ahh well I can only hope for next year :)

Awesome sound! Could do with a little melody in there or something, but good mixing solid riffs.
If I'd had the choice I would have pushed you through to the next round of NGADM but sadly I didn't get the opportunity since I'm only a replacement judge. I think you deserved a spot though. ;)

PirateCrab responds:

Ahhh many thanks dude I wish I had a spot! The only reason it's lacking melody is because I'm currently working on vocals from a singer/screamer I've got in contact with. That'll be uploaded here once it's done :)
