I wrote this song about the original Fallout game.
Hopefully a few of you guys pick up on the references.
This track is all me, from start to finish.
Hope you guys enjoy.

This is sweet as fuck, mang. Really dig it a lot! Superior drummer sounds so rad. Gotta get me this...hahaha.

Everything sounds fucking fantastic, brother.

5 by 5.

TwilightNecrosis responds:

Oh, dude, I know, Superior is BEAST.
Thanks for the double 5, amigo.
I'm still planning on hitting that KsE track. Just gotta find the time.
Metal forever!

Solid song, with some nice riffs and a good driving feel to it. I like the vocal layering as well with the lows and highs, sounds nice and tight with a nice overall effect.

One thing to maybe play around with would be automating the volume of the guitars up a touch when there's no vocals, so at 1.47 bring it up a touch to match the snare. During the section with no vocals at 1.47 my attention is more in the centre so I would pull the small tapping sections up (1.57) so they demanded my attention more.

Only a small thing really and as i said, really like the vocals and the vocal layering!

TwilightNecrosis responds:

I could have sworn I had automated those tapping riffs up... I may have accidentally uploaded the wrong mix. But if it is right, I'll crank em up a little more. That tapping riff is my favorite thing in the song, so I want it to be loud and proud!
Thanks for taking the time to write an excellent review.
Metal forever!
