Really great song i thought, it was composed and arranged really well i thought. The mix sounds good especially the drums. I love the different parts and breakdowns especially the one around 3:00. The use of the different instruments like acousitc guitar and piano really add to the feel of the song. Overall i thought it was good, good job man!
This song has its ups and downs.
- Melody is pretty interesting. It never heads off to places that it shouldn't go, it stays within the frame but remains interesting.
- Drums are kickass.
- The mix is well balanced.
- Breakdowns \m/
- Song is, overall, waaay too synthetic.
- Guitars sound extremely computerized.
I always get real picky when it comes to metal and such. I actually think the song was pretty heavy, but the guitar sound is really distracting. This song could've worked totally fine if you added some vocals to it. Without any singing, the guitars pop out of the mix in a way that gives the song this oldschool-NG-flash-game-feel to it (which isn't necessarily a bad thing).
Conclusion: The composition itself was nice, but the sounds that the song is based on are pretty underwhelming and could use some work.
It sounds very synthesized because I compose it to sound similar to psx MegaMan X4, X5, X6, with a modern quality and a powerful sound just like some of my favorite metal bands :)
And yes, you're right, I need to make better guitars. I'll do my best effort :)
Thank for your feedback, I'm glad that you listen n_n
