That's it, upping my game!

More melodies, full songs, ACTUAL CLEAN GUITARS (Which if any of you follow me, I never NEVER use) and more solo widdly diddly content.

This really reminds me of some of The Devil Wears Prada's stuff, which is a pretty big compliment from me. And as far as the solo at about 1:14, if the whole thing had a melody similar to that, it would be very like Periphery or Animals as Leaders, two of my top 5 bands in the metal scene. I really dig the djenty sound.

I couldn't really imagine a clearer mix for this tune. I can pick out everything going on, nothing muddy or hard to follow. I can hear all the notes in harmonies. I love it.

When this track started I thought that this sounds more like some *Core than Heavy Metal. But don't get mad! :P
It's actually a damn good song, with very nice riffs and a lot of diversity. I think it's hard to write instrumental songs that don't repeat themselves too often. But you had a lot of good stuff going on here, which surprisingly does fit together very well.

I also liked that little effect you used around the 1:30 mark. Also, the drums after that part are just AWESOME!

this is really great, especially by newgrounds standards. I'm not going to waste your time telling you all the bits that i like (because i would be here for a while)

for me in a few places the gate is a little tight by the smallest amount and i think the notes could resonate for just a fraction of a second more
theres a few places where the guitar sounds a little too choppy because of it like the riff at 00:16
the gate makes it less natural and flowy and makes it sound a little synthesised because of how it seems to cut off mid note.

but thats one tiny thing that i went into way too much depth with, the rest is fucking immaculate.

Before I start reviewing this, I want to say that I HATE 75% of all metal tracks. I just feel like alot of them sound really muddy and are annoying to listen to. There are some exceptions like MetalJonus, but normally I hate them.
That said, I loved this... O_O. How come that I hate metal off newgrounds, but I seem to like quite a bit of the metal tracks on newgrounds.

This just totally blew my mind the moment it started. I just instantly knew that something awesome was coming. The intro riff was stunning. The guitar sounds really professional throughout the trAck, and the intro is no exception.
There are too many riffs in this for me to say what I think about every single one, but Let me just say that I don't think I heard a single bad riff :D.
The song is also really well aranged with a lot of hills and valleys that keeps the interest and makese wanna keep listening.
The deeper parts of the guitar sounded very good. Totally rocked my earbuds :D.

Halfway to this track it had me standing up on my chair and shaking my head. That means this was awesome. And it certainly is, was, and will always be awesome.
Great work :D.
5 stars

What a review to be proud of <3 I suppose my riffing style is fairly unique in that I generally avoid following song patterns so it doesn't get repetitive. Clearly, it worked. I might have to re-use that again ;)

Thanks a lot matey! Hope to see you next year in the NGADM! :)
