Must say that this really wasn't my cup of tea. I actually enjoy metal rock sometimes, but I felt like there was something missing from this. I wish that you would have added som percussion in this, though I understand that you might not have a drummer and drumset available.
My main problem with this song, however, is the distortion. There's way to much on it. i've always liked the sound of a distorted guitar, but I believe that you should use distortion with caution. Even though this might sound good on studio level monitors or headphones, on normal earbuds this just sounds like a huge mess. I must say that it sounds great on my own headphones, but I think you should take into consideration to try to take the distortion a bit down on this one. Maybe even cut some high-end in an Equalizer so that the right frequencies shine through.
Overall I think that the track was ok. I really liked the composition and arrangement of it, but the cons kinda outweigh the pros in this one.
When I recorded it it was going through a system with and 18 inch, 12 inch, and some other subs at the bottom end, some JBL speakers and some other brand in the mid, and a bunch of tiny tweeters on the highend... called "the array". It sounded good on your good headphones though you said right? I'm glad. Up till a little bit ago I didn't have earbuds at all. The ones I have now are a gift and are still in their case so far. So you would say that if one has good earphones or a system the song is good?
Thanks for the review :). A friend of mine can do vocals well and I guess for those songs I will read your ideas over again and implement them. I'll have to get one of those EQ pedals though (on the list).
This is a solid jam, just needs some percussion to be a fuckin' oddyssey
Thanks. I don't really know too much about drumming. My cuzin is a good drummer though, I think in a month or so he's going to look through all the various recordings my friend and I have done and see which he might want to put percussion and words to.
