So this is a short metal track I've been working on.. not sure what to name it or what all it's going to be yet, but this seemed like a good place to stop for the night and wanted to see what you guys thought about it.


I really like the beginning of this. Not something you would expect to come from a metal song. I could tell where it was going though, and it had me really excited. And then when the metal finally entered at 00:59, I had a hard time hearing the main guitar lead. The backup guitar seemed a little to overpowering, and the drums didn't feel like they were punchy enough. One suggestion I have that could help: maybe take the lead guitar up an octave when it's playing the main theme (like at 01:00). I bet it will make it a lot easier to pick out once everything starts playing at once.

I like what you're doing at 03:04. It's a really cool blend of what the beginning theme was, and what your metal was doing. I feel like it started entering the rock ballad genre at this part, which isn't bad.

It also feels like when you were trying to play the main theme at the 01:00 section, it also sounded a little empty. The only thing I can think of is that if you quiet down the back up guitar and have it play a little longer it might help. But I'm not an expert in the metal genre, I just occasionally listen to metal.

I like where it's going, but it needs a little work.

yep, everyting you're saying would probably help, actually. I'm no expert on the metal genre (though I listen to a lot of it) and I'm certainly not the best when it comes to production, but I'm glad that you liked it. The hard part is trying to get everything that I want into the song, without altering the sounds of the instruments to work together better (as that would lose even more depth, I feel) and just trying to control it (especially my sloppy playing). Definitely one of my favorite projects so far, but it does need a lot of work.

Bit Of Lack of the listeners in my opinion.

To start with i aint a really Metal Fan but i am willing to try to give you feedback from a non metal listener.
Good Strumming.
+ Like the Panning Play. So it gives you a good feeling you are inside of it.
+ The parts playing on the guitar is fast & Great High level.
-Sometimes it gets to chaotic and that messes up the bright sound, I want to hear HQ sounds not only because i love that but just better way for you to express your music ! So if you think this is good > You Can Give it more boost if you want ! =)
-Mixing and mastering.

++ If you did this all by yourself !

Great job ! Keep up your good work !.

Yes, I did everything by myself :P recording, producing, playing, and so forth. Mixing and mastering have always been a weak spot for me, and going into a completely different genre breaks everything I'm used to as far as getting everything to sound right xD but I tried my best. Glad that you liked it!
