This project was started in FL Studio 11 in November 2013. I uploaded the project as a WIP early in 2014 on Soundcloud (https://soundcloud.com/taintedlogic/the-door-construction-wip) back when I was known as "TheDoor6." I didn't really work on it after that until November 2015, when I started making a serious effort to finish it. My completion of the mastering process was delayed by a couple of months because I don't have access to FL Studio at college, but luckily I had quite a few weeks between semesters! I spent over 16 hours in total work time, about 11 of which came between November and now. It's much less melody-centric than my last couple of pieces. I recall being inspired originally by several club-ish tracks of Waterflame's during one of his darker phases, particularly 2010's "Heavy Machine Rhythm" (http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/304891). This is almost 4 minutes of mean, industrial techno. Hope you enjoy! :D

Ooh, I remember this! I heard the WIP on soundcloud more than one and a half years ago xD
And I still instantly recognized the sound within the first seconds! That must mean you're doing something right when it comes to sound design recognizability.

The WIP was good, but I like this finished version better. I actually prefer the later half of the song. The rhythm is nice and solid. I guess the percussion at some points could be a bit louder, imo. A lot of interesting sounds and effects are used, which I love (always so much going on). This actually reminds me of some retro video game music (more american games, I think). The mix sounds pretty good in general. Good dynamic balance.

The melodies are okay, though I don't find any of them to be incredinly catchy (those sub-melodies are really nice at times though, like the bass-synth-ish stuff). That said, I liked what was going on at 2:38. I think that at 1:41, 1:48, 2:54 and 3:01 I would've preferred if the highest note was actually held for a while instead of immediately gliding back down, as it now only hints at what could've been the sweetest spots (or the peaks) of the melody, which kinda left me haning a bit.

In general, I really enjoyed the piece, and I'm glad that you finished it. This has that distinct "TheDoor6" quality to it for sure, and I've missed it :)

Good job, and keep it up!

TaintedLogic responds:

First of all, thanks for the review! I'm really glad you recognized it. :) I personally prefer the latter half of the song too, but I thought it sounded more climactic if I did a lot more with it during the second "chorus," if you could call it a chorus. I also got a little too attached to the first 1.5 minutes after hearing it every so often for almost 2 years. XD About the percussion, I didn't really try to leave too much space in the mix for the kick or snare, but I did leave plenty for the industrial FX in there (there's an anvil at 2:55, a gun in rapid fire at 2:45, etc.). But I agree that some parts didn't come through as clearly as others. The FX was really the crown of this piece IMO, and I'm really glad that you thought the mixing was pretty good. Melody-wise, this piece is kind of lacking, I agree. I certainly don't think the riff at :56 constitutes a proper melody. I just wanted it to be catchy and/or terrifying. If anything, the bridge at 1:43 offers a melody, but that soon gets buried in mean industrial effects and stuff later on. :D I totally understand what you mean about the "immediately gliding back down" from emotional heights and whatnot. I wanted this piece to sound jittery, frantic, and urgent, but I'll definitely consider that for my next piece. I'm actually really curious what you mean by the "TD6" quality it has. I simply need to know how you think my style has evolved in the last few years. Please PM me. In the meantime, though, I really appreciate the review! Have a nice day. ;D
