Final Version here:

The theme of this song is inspired by the "Children of Darkness" documentary, and the accounts of the therapists and a patient on adversive shock therapy.

FL 12 with Massive, Serum, iZotope Vinyl, CMT bitcrusher, Kontact strings volume were used for modeling. ValhallaRoom for reverb.

There's a bork in here for Gabe -may he rest in piece-

I've been listening a for some time now people in the same group than me for the NGUAC 2017 competition, as this song is by far the one I like the most. Even if I found some other one I like more after this one, this one does stand out.
Very original, good sounds, and I like the development of the song itself. The mixing is also nice.

Good luck ;)

DarkBlueFX responds:

Thanks for listening and I appreciate the comment! Yeah there are definitely some risky parts in here that I thought I might lose an audience with, but if you see that as originality that is awesome.

Good luck to you as well my guy

Fantastic work as usual! Great energy and the odd samples grew on me pretty dang fast. Can't wait to hear it when you think it's done.

DarkBlueFX responds:

:3 thx my dood, first impressions are still valuable though don't get me wrong, they are definitely more representative in how people will react generally.

Can't wait to hear what you put out for the competition

wb :p Noice track m8 ~Zombiez

Rad !

All the samples are greatly used (even gabe) and the speed changes were unpredictably good !
I feel a big experimental feeling in this song, and everything you tested is pretty great !
So yeah, Great job there Fella !


DarkBlueFX responds:

Thanks for listening! I was unsure how people would react to the kind of abstract parts of this song, as I have gotten some polarized responses on it. The tempo changes and making the song 'off the gridlines' made for an interesting arrangement process. Glad to hear you appreciate it!
