Song Week number five!

Heavy metal. What a genre! I've always wanted to do a song in it, but I've never felt like I had the right instruments. I still don't, but I'm RNGing these genres, so now's as bad a time as any, I suppose.

I had fun writing the solo. Who would've thought it'd use the blues scale?

By the way, speaking of metal, check out this guy!

I don't listen to much metal these days, but when I do, it's usually this guy. (or PirateCrab.)

You need to do something with guitar amp, becouse it is sounds too soft for metal. But chords are perfect!

LunacyEcho responds:

I wish I could do something with a guitar amp! The guitar sound you're hearing here is a VST, not played live. Of all the songs in song week, I think the composition here definitely has the most potential in comparison to the production.

Guitar sounds need improvement, and drums are a tad too quiet. However, you have a nice melody and track arrangement!

ehhhhhhhhh

=> drums =>

Agh! I was having a hard time figuring out how loud I wanted them, because if I made them any louder, the kicks and the cymbals would be more audible, but the snare would basically overtake the whole song. And I was WAY too lazy to go change the velocity for every snare in the song.

=> melody and track arrangement =>

Your comment basically sums up all of my music in a nutshell. Decent composition, horrible production. :P

Thanks for listening and commenting!

You certainly don't have the best quality instruments, but for using those you had, you sure did do a spendid job! I would know too, as I come from the land of metal ;)
Those drums especially were awesome. Even better than I'd expect; it really shows you're a drummer :p

The solo is nice too. If only you had great vst instruments...

I can tell. :P

=> drums =>

Thanks! I tried doing the best I could with default instruments. I really hope what I lack in instrument quality I make up for in composition. :D

=> solo =>

I know the solo "guitar" (heavily modified synth, actually) sounds bad, but I'm actually pretty fond of it. Not quite sure why. :/

Thanks for listening!

When im in Hell, im playing this song :P

LunacyEcho responds:

Sweet. :D
