Welp, looks like i'm finished. Not sure how I managed to get in the top 16 of the NGADM but I did. Unfortunately I got paired up with the monster known as PirateCrab so this is most likely the end for me, but definitely check out his music if you enjoy metal, It's some rad stuff!

Edit: Also this would be great with some vokes, I might try to get someone to do them in the future :P

This is a NGADM Round 1 Review.

Good:
- Holy moly, that guitar work is wild!
- Super energetic introduction.
- Great transitions.
- 1:00, 1:58 and 2:41 -- LOVED these parts!

Silky smooth guitar playing as always, JDawg. I love the energy that this track has! As mentioned above, I loved the transitions and I LOVED those riffs at 1:00 and 1:58. Furthermore, the break (which was much needed by 2:41) was excellent.

What to consider:
- Drums stand out in the mix
- Not enough rests; more breaks, please!
- Repetitious...

As pointed out by others, the drums stick out quite a bit! As with your Round 1 track, there could have been a more effective use of reliefs in order to break the song up and give the ears of the listener a rest. 2:41 sounds perfect where it sits, and another break in the earlier part of the track would have been great! Again, the track is a little repetitive. I won't drag on about that though!

Great track, I must say that I really enjoyed listening to it. Well done!

Score: 8.8/10
