Isn't it fun to go back down your own works and say "Ouch, I did this?" Alternatively, look at how much you've progressed. When I listen to my 90s work, just learning how to beatmatch, basic mixing and ideas, I giggle at what I came up with. We all come "a long way" from where we once were, or we stop doing it.
I dunno. Overall the song is really cool. It's got the "badass fight" and "total adrenaline-rush" vibes to it that I love. There's something to it that just really exalts it above all other super-cool fight or adrenaline-rush songs like Show No Tears by NemesisTheory or Infiltration by ParagonX9. I know for a fact that the instrument choice plays a big part it in, but other than that it's just a well done song. I just wish that it was a minute or two longer, and that you didn't put in that voice counting down. That voice sounds terrible man, definitely the worst part of the whole song. If that wasn't there and you made it a little longer and added in a bit more evolution, this would definitely be one of my favorite tracks on NG. It still IS one of my favorite tracks on NG. It could go higher, though.
I'd really, REALLY like to see a remastering of this song that takes into account the points addressed here and points brought up by others. I'd REALLY like to see it.
Hope this helps.
Thanks, man. I wish I had the multitracks but they died with my old computer. I'd totally make a remastered version if I could.
I hear the rhythm to MURS - No More Control in this. I think you need to focus on mixing, that's the core of doing genres like industrial and still having it be listenable, you have to have a certain appeal, and if it isn't in the compositional content, it needs to be in the overall sound.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
