Welp, after not writing anything worth uploading for a very long time. I finally made a song. This one is a bit different from anything i've ever made. Most people here might know me for my lighter stuff, or perhaps my goofy video game covers. But from time to time I enjoy to get heavy, this one is definitely one of those times. Definitely the heaviest i've ever gone on my 7 string. Took me long enough.

First of all i've been in the rut of making very structured, boring songs that anyone could predict just listening to the first time through, so I decided to go a little more unstructured this time, something I haven't done in years. There is still repeating riffs and what not but they are a little weird, the chorus is somewhat uneven but just feels right when I play it. Probably the one thing that most wouldn't notice is I tried to make the beginning repeating riffs and the end repeating riffs sound somewhat alike. Not only that but the end solo is taken from a random solo in the middle of the song, but played over different rhythm guitar. I had a lot of fun recording this one so I hope you guys enjoy it!

Any kind of feedback would be great, thanks for the listens :D

Edit: After listening with some fresh ears I think I could add a couple things, so I might add this to an album or something and make it even longer. Also after listening, I really wish it had some vocals. Would make a lot of the repeating parts less repetitive.

Oh my god, this is the stuff! I'm gonna be enjoying your song for ages without end!

Oh wow, glad you dig it!

I don't have much feedback other than "wow, this was awesome." I hear the Periphery elements, and solos remind me a bit of bands like Scale the Summit. Well done, I look forward to hearing more from you.

Thanks I'm glad you liked it :D

Sick stuff, brother. Dig it a lot! Makes me wish I had time to vocally fuck around. Inspires me there.

Rad tune. No real critique. Just make more like it. \m/

I'm digging this! It's almost like Periphery meets Shokran. It's hard, brutal, technical, and progressive all in one package! 5/5

JDawg00100 responds:

Thanks! That's pretty much what I was going for actually. Lots of different genres and styles that I haven't really tried out before. Was fun to make, thanks for the listen :D

Good work! This was really hard and fresh! I loved every part! Keep it up! Give me a PM when you get vocals on this beast! ;)
