Really nice track that you have done here! :D
Its perfect as a Battletheme in a RPG :)

I really like it^^


Although the song's title is "One Inch from Death", every time I hear it I feel motivated to live for centuries!! /m/

Mattashi responds:

Thanks man :D with the title I meant like One Inch away from Death, like by dodging a powerful punch :P

Great track. This piece here really caught the essence of Metal/Rock that I so deeply love. I love that one is able to hear every instrument play as if they were a unified chorus. The pace is wonderful and you can really get into some headbanging or serious gaming-time with this. Great work!

Mattashi responds:

Thank you Zenpei!

Boobs, and more boobs :P To be honest thought this really does remind me of guilty gear lol which is badass by the way! and those drums and the guitar are so serious! nice work!

Now this is a serious head-banging song man. I really really enjoyed it man. I know you play guitar, I wish I had similar level of practise as you. Very nice piece Matt.

Mattashi responds:

Thank you Emid :) I do play guitar but for this song I used mostly Shreddage 2 IBZ I did record a couple of guitar tracks to add some layer :)
