Hello! Time for your review of a few points I think could be improved. ***I DO NOT REVIEW LYRICS, JUST THE MUSIC***
Points of Goodness:
-That vocal processing, man. That's good. Same for the guitar.
-Excellent guitar noodling for the chords.
-Overall feel of the song is solid.
Points of Improvement:
-The growling quality of the vocals does get tiring after awhile.
-The mixing of the guitar solo and off-key sound of it really hurts that section for me - particularly when the rest of it is relatively on point.
-Ending did not feel like an ending. Definitely needs a bit more conclusion to it.
-The song seems too long and too stagnant overall. It seems stretched out further than it really needed for the ideas it contains.
I like the smooth, easygoing vibe at the beginning. However, I don’t think that vibe meshed very well with the vocals - there was a lot of vocal layering/chorus effects that gave the vocals a really gruff sound. It just seemed a little overdone in that regard. I don’t think my issue is with the vocals themselves, just the way they were mixed. They probably need to have the high-mids boosted a little, just to give them a bit more distinction and avoid the gruff overtone. The pacing is good, and I like the lyrics a lot. The mix could use some sharpening - the weak snare especially caught my attention. I really like the solos at around 2:28, but I think they drag on for a bit too long. The second half of the piece also doesn’t feel too climactic. I know this is a long piece already, but it felt like you ended it right after a verse - it just wasn’t very conclusive in its instrumental content. I’ve picked at some smaller details here, but overall I admire your organic sound design and sense of flow and harmony. Keep at it, Ceevro! :)
Thanks. I lost by .03, which tells me that those tiny details can make all the difference!
ugh this is really good but the vocal treatment bothers me, it seems like you did some sort of funky vocal processing that makes them sound weird! other than that, it's great - the acoustic guitar, the melodies, there's lots to like!
Oh, I treated the crap out of the vocals. I wanted to sounds slightly...off. Not quite human. There was a reason for it!
Hopefully it didn't work too far out of my favour!
Always a pleasure, man. This is awesome.
Glad you enjoyed! That's why I do it!
One word. Goosebumps. :D
Best of luck to you, man!
Here's hoping it's enough! ThaPredator is damn good! Everyone who made it is!
