Song Week number two! Should be called Loop Week, really.

I have no idea what Goth music is. Apparently, there's a thing called goth rock, but goth isn't in the rock section, and all the examples goth I could find on Newgrounds were nothing like examples of goth rock elsewhere. So I wrote a song heavily based on the song <a href="http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/161978">Cave of Spirits</a> by Lorens4444, which is one of the most popular songs on Newgrounds listed under 'goth'. Hope you enjoy!

I feel so much darknes so much undiscovered and questions. But in the original have sense of pain and much sorrow. Like blues. But in your track there are no pain and only small sorrow.

LunacyEcho responds:

Um... I guess that's a good thing, since you rated five stars! Thanks for listening!

To answer your question, goth rock is rock themed gothic. The goth 'genre' is not well defined in NG. Loop - puzzling, the entrance to the Cave of Spirits, mayhap.

LunacyEcho responds:

Thanks for the clarification!

Your on a roll mate, this remind me of background music i heard from a game many years ago :P
Keep it up!

LunacyEcho responds:

Thanks a lot! Expect a review sometime today. ;)

I like the style of this one. It's very mysterious, and full of interesting intruments.
The melodies are interesting. Even the usually happy chords sound a bit eerie (like at 0:48).
I love the mood that's set by the strings.

Getting out of your comfort zone is a very good thing to do, and you get interesting results. That's really awesome.

The loop is almost flawless as well. Only thing that makes you notice is a weird, kind of... Dull? Sound, like a very filtered cymbal or something :/

Great job ;)

LunacyEcho responds:

I thought you'd like this one. ;)

=> usually happy chords =>

It's probably the instrumentation. I went from B minor to D major, and I'm not sure what the music theoretical implications of that are, but from my standpoint, it didn't sound like D major normally does.

=> mood =>

The mood was a pretty strong aspect of this piece in my opinion as well. :D

=> loop =>

Secretly, I sidechain all of my intros. Just the intros.

Nah, it was probably because I didn't take you excellent looping advice. I didn't do the Audacity thing you do, which is why there's a little bit of nothing in the beginning.

Thanks for the review!
