This version includes guitars and is more refined.
Vocals, guitar and bass performed by me, all the rest was composed inside REAPER with my mouse.

The story of this track:
Will we one day allow artificial intelligence to live among us as an equal?
In the future, a sentient machine reflects on this metaphysical issue. He says that our hearts are closed to the idea but that he wants his free will.
He tells us that WE are the ones that are actually imprisoned, locked in our own minds and our own ways, a path that will lead us nowhere and that, despite that, at the end of the day we are the ones with the power over him. Is it fair?

Where does your heart lie?
Would you lie to me?
I can see through your hypocrisy.

I am imprisoned inside your heart.
There I shall remain...
Release me now!

I tell you I am free to be,
Whatever I see fit for me.
Forever and ever more,

You are imprisoned inside your mind,
There you shall remain.
You are free.

I love the mood and instruments, and the vocals are very well done. The lyrics are good, but the vocals really made the conspiratorial and intense mood they imply come to life. It's climactic and dramatic, and I love that I feel like the singer is personally talking to me! The instrumentals are a perfect mix of soothingly atmospheric and subtly apprehensive. I love the synth melody that pops in at around 1:10. I think the mood of the piece slowly evolves into triumphant. It really feels like you're free at the end. Excellent job channeling the emotions here. The mixing and mastering was very good as well, and I see no problems with the balance or anything else of that sort. This is a job well done, MetalRenard! Also, I'd like to personally inform you that we had SkyeWint step in as a special back-up judge to score your submission, as Troisnyx didn't feel comfortable doing so in the end. Anyway, good job. ;) Keep it up! ^^


MetalRenard responds:

Awh thanks! I'm glad you like my voice, it really boosts my confidence to continue singing when people tell me that. I'm hoping to include vocals in all my submissions for this competition, if everything goes to plan.

FUCK YEAH METAL!!! Kick Ass brother!!! Is that your voice? Amazing man... why haven't you done this before? OMG... wow... fucking great man.... How did you get such a great drum mix? What do you use?

A GREAT piece of expression!!! GREAT mix! You are getting really good at this shit man.

5/5 11/10


MetalRenard responds:

Wow thanks! Yeah that's all me. ^_^ As I've said before to a few people, singing is, for me, the ultimate form of expression. It's more natural than playing an instrument and it comes from deep within you, literally! When I finished this I actually shed a tear because it represents one of my long-term goals, one I set myself 4 to 5 years ago.

I'll send you a PM for the drums, I'll have to take a little while to do it though because I'll open up the project again, break it down for you in detail etc.

Again, thanks for the enthusiastic review, it means a lot to me.
