Halloween track. Been a while since I did metal eh? It takes a bit to build up. It's late, too late for the contest...sadly. If my job didn't make me work today I would've gotten this done sooner. Anywho, I'm proud of this.

Instrumental version: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/710751

My inspirations were Xenogenocide, Bad-Man-Incorporated, Mastodon, Disturbed, Evanescence, and Dream Theater.

Here's the lyrics:

When I see the dusk,
I can feel the rust,
as I'm growing old,
the lonliness growing cold.

When I see the children walk,
people that play and talk,
it reminds me of those days,
why did it all fade away?

Verse 1

The sun has set, and I have met,
a fate that is darker than black,
down to my knees, shackled in chains,
like I'm tied up in a sack.
Trapped in my fear, I try to get out,
finding the meaning, what life's all about,
I've run away from the sweet embrace,
I can't seem to look myself in the face.


I've met the wizard and the thief,
all on a Hollow Eve.
Bleeding at the sight of leaves,
oh what a lonely Hollow Eve.

Verse 2

I see the sweet, the sour petite,
the one who will cover my eyes,
If i get close, she'll cover my nose,
so I can't smell the lies.
My senses failing, I've been decieved once more,
fighting myself, and everyone else, a barrier around my core.

Very good indeed

And I have to agree it does give off that feel with disturbed version of sound of silence but you pulled this off with some good style a good sense of quality and I was really impressed with this one but nice job overall I don't see anything that needs any changes on this one as it's a pretty good piece very nice vibe that comes with this one but anyways keep up the great audio tracks

No changes as this was pretty solid


RealFaction responds:


Now this is something that works on a perfect level, Just before 1:07, it can easily remind people of Disturbed's "The Sound of Silence." but afterwards, it gets totally killer (In a good way.) Very Nicely Done.

a thought just occurred to me though, you could have actually fitted a 3rd Verse in it, giving it all the more awesomeness, but hey, This Is Rockin enough on its own so 5/5 bud. people will be spreading the word about this for sure.

RealFaction responds:

Holy crap, you nailed one of the inspirations haha! I love that cover by them. Thanks! :) I'll admit i rushed this since I didn't have much time because of work to get this done in time. Technically, I didn't really finish it in time anyway. Thanks! :D
