As mentioned in other reviews, this does sound fairly rudimentary, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I just feel there isn't much bravery in how the chords are approached, and progression. Approach all your songs with the same melodic mind as you do your metal tracks and you should be good. As is now, it just sounds like a lot of perfect fifths and octave movements. Recommend some study of music theory and chord resolution at the basic level. Instrumentation reminds me of some retro-y bands I listened to in early college, so props for sounding almost avant garde.
Thanks for the advice! Yeah, this genre of music is all new to me lol and I do know theory to an extent, and can write the chord progressions on guitar and then transcribe to keyboard or the program I'm using. However, the writing approach you mentioned is a good idea! So, I might do that at some point haha!
I mean you have the basics and the quality overall is pretty good. I think what you need to do from here is try to introduce a really catchy memorable melody early on in the track. The part at the end where the main parts all drop out at about 2:14 should be done somewhere around the middle or maybe even more than once also. It keeps the track from being repetitive if you do that but there are a couple ways you could handle it besides that even.
Just keep working on it and pretty soon you will start having some decent skill in this genre.
Cool, thanks a lot dude! I'll mess with it some more and see how it sounds! \m/
Not entirely my style, but I can definitely get down on this! Only reason I can't give it a full 5 stars is because it sounds so... basic. Then again, you're new to doing this stuff, right? I can only see even more of an upward rise from this! Keep going with it, man! I'm interested to see where you can take it.
Thanks dude! Yeah, I'm super new to this lol. Any videos or tutorials or anything that would help build my knowledge with this kind of music? Shoot me a pm! I'm really interested in learning more!
Fist pump the shit outta this!! hell yea dude!
Hellz ya! *pump pump pump pump*
