well halloween is near and people here are preparing
for oct. 31 and nov. 1 they will be spending a night in the graveyard.

its not that great....

I wanted to evoke the mischievous and fun side of this holiday
Halloween is not just about being dark and scary its also about going out and letting loose in the night like the creatures of the night VANDALASING EMPTY\FOR RENT HOUSES AND WHATEVER IT IS YOU FEEL LIKE VANDALIZING WHILE HIGH ON SUGAR RUSH!

the explosion part was inspired by my bud and his ingenious combination of eggs and fire crackers...
...good times
...poor house

No need to think that it's not that great ... it's really good.

Sleeping in a graveyard is good?

Your comments are wrong... it is... THAT GREAT

steampianist responds:


This is an NGADM Round 5 review.


What I liked:
-Catchy melody and chord progression, as always!
-You did an excellent job using atmospheric sounds in this.
-Great melodies and harmonies all around!

What could have been better:
-I feel like the track was lacking some low end.
-Mixing wasn't bad, but it felt a little flat to me.
-I would love to hear you change your instrumentation up a little - there's no doubt this is "steampianist", which isn't necessarily bad, but I would like some more variation!

Overall a great piece, not too much to complain about. Excellent composition, sir!

Score: 9/10

steampianist responds:

Thanks man

NGADM Review


I had a strange feeling that since the Halloween season is upon us, you would be creating something to suit the season. You hit the nail on the head with this song. Heck...you broke the darn thing. I believe that this track is the epitome of the 'steampianist' sound - mischief, craziness, intricate mixing and instrumentation and last but not least, good ol' auditory fun.

You start the song off with a strong introduction that carries the mischievous vibe throughout the entirety of the track. I should also mention that you have thrown in some very interesting melodies that just seem to go with the flow. Your percussion is mixed remarkably and it is always changing so there is always something refreshing about this track. The overall mixing is fantastic by the way.

The biggest issue that this track has is the fact that it sounds a bit too much like your other work. I mentioned above that this sounded very characteristic of your...well...sound. I know that is an obvious statement, you are your own artist so to speak, you know? However, it sounds a little too 'steampianist' get my drift? The conclusion is well executed, but I was expecting more of a build-up to supplement the high-energy nature of the song.

Amazing track steampianist, keep it up! :)

Score: 9.5/10

steampianist responds:

yeah i decided to kill two birds with one stone :) anyways thanks for the review man

I like it, man. Real Banjo Kazooie sounding. Reminds me a bit of Gex and Mother 3 as well. You did this for the NGADM? Good luck on that there contest.

I don't enjoy giving 5s on things that I don't think deserve them. This deserves it. It's an excellently well mixed and cohesive song.

steampianist responds:

thanks man really appreciate it
