"So Far Away" - Cover

Author Comments

This is a cover of Avenged Sevenfold's song titled "So Far Away" done my way. :) I wanted it to sound cinematic but I'm not sure if it sounds that way. What do you think?

NOTE: The first version I uploaded late last night had a "glitch" in it so I replaced it with this version which also includes some fixes on a couple of instruments that were sticking out a little from the mix.

Thanks to Mister-Liberty for beta testing the upload. :)

Yep, this is a pretty good rendition. :)

Woah! Amazing cover!!! You nailed it! Alse 2 and 1/2 years since the last review xD

I loved this song. I find it very inspirational. If i weren't so tired i would write a short story to it. I am now going to follow you and look at the rest of your work.

I would surely love to read your short story so I hope you write it! Thanks for listening.

Yay! A relatively unique composition, XayberOptix style! It seems to lie somewhere between melodic and ambient. My only complaint would be that the main drum thing sometimes seems to be complicating the sound somehow. I think this is because it sounds rather dry while everything else has lots of reverb. This, combined with how loud it is, I think makes it stand out in attention beyond all other instruments.

Very nice!

A very constructive review. Much appreciated!
