I was kind of liking this track, then started not to like it but couldn't fix it. The lead synth is literally just a shit ton of noise. I can't modulate it. When you press a button it literally just makes one giant heap of shitty noise. Instead of crying over spilled milk, I'll just post this noise up and run far away from it really quickly.

This express my feelings playing Metal Gear.

What I thought at 1:40:


This is amazing! Where do I start? The piano in this piece and the use of delay behind it is off the chain. The quick melodies make me think of a sort of psychological tick that's beginning to creep its way into the mind, and a bunch of pent up anger is ready to be violently expelled on everything around it. I can imagine something like a neural parasite ready to activate a killswitch and assume full control of the host.

Your unique distorted noises in the intro really set the tone of the track in motion. I was already feeling the virus theme to it. The hats in this are pretty solid, and it's great to hear some chopping and pitch altering to keep them fresh. It's cool that you used different snares too. I always hear a lot of heavily layered snares that hit throughout entire tracks when in some parts that kind of thing isn't really necessary.

Now for the big noise. Yeah, it's kind of rough, and I'm not really a fan of not-so-subtle phasers/flangers, which is what this sound seems to be running through (or maybe a high-res lfo filter?), but it just works so well with the track, I couldn't possibly be that negative about it. It delivers the message so well and knocks you on your ass at the same time. And the distorted bass backing it up helps tremendously.

Glad I started following you, because this is really a wonderfully awesome track that I'll definitely be favoriting this for future listening. Can't wait to hear something that you'll actually be excited to release!

Also, you may or may not know, but Tom likes this as well. Check out his latest news.
