My backgrounds from an overall arrangement POV, hope it'll be useful!
At first I thought it was a bit busy, but there's great sections where it pulls back to just drums, bass, synth lines, great build up between sections, it could be improved by pulling back eeeven more? A well placed silence would be epic in this, before a blast. Sort of like the boss has just burst in.
Though the loop is a good starting point, you could try to have two distinct chord structures/riffs to go over the same underlying bass line? Then structure like A-B-C-B-A or something.
Overall I really liked it, really tense which is the best thing for a boss battle!
Hi there! :) I review/criticize tracks on the audio portal in three categories:
- Mixing (Technical part, volume, frequency balance, etc.)
- Composition (Melody, chord progression, intervals, etc.)
- Feeling (Basically what I feel while listening)
Remember, this is all my personal opinion ;) I listen with a Sennheiser 650 HD headphone.
I apologize in advanced for my English :D
Overall nicely done :) The synths are mixed quite well together. You can hear every sound and melody line. The stereo image is nice, it balances out the track. The only thing I can mention is the beat. In my opinion, the sound of the snare doesn’t punch through the bassline / other sounds of the track. That is really a shame, because it would give the track even more power! Try to gain it up and boost around 150-180 Hz.
AWSOME. It’s weird, it’s creepy and very big. Even when you hear 3 melody lines together, everything fits. I’m impressed :)
I assume it boss fight music because of the title. This gives me the feeling of a boss fight ^^ To me it gives the feeling of „danger is coming!”, because it’s kind of creepy and aggressive music. I can totally see this in a video game ;) The only thing that bothers me that it cuts of at the end, I look forward to the full version of this track ^^
Overal opinion: Awsome track ^^
Rating: 4 stars
Thanks for your review. I appreciate you going so in depth with it.
I'm just curious of what made you see this as an unfinished track. My intention was to make the different elements rise until it all collapsed on itself and started the loop again. Could you explain a bit more why you think that didn't work?
Thanks again anyway. It's good to get some food for thought when it comes to your own music! :)
