I wanted to do something different from my usual lounge sound and came up with this EDM instrumental. I would have done lyrics/vocals for this song, but I ended up being extremely busy this past week and... Well yeah. Didn't expect to be that busy. I don't expect to come up with any lyrics or vocals tomorrow, since it's Sunday (Church)

Nonetheless, here it is! My song for the first round of the NGADM 2017! I think it has a differentish sound to it while still sounding like me.

Remember that every breath you take without Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour is one breath closer to an eternity of suffering and anguish in Hell. Paul the Apostle breathed threats and murder before He submitted to Jesus. Is whatever your breathing really worth dying and suffering eternally for? Jesus is calling you today!

I love the atmosphere at the beginning. The snare seems a bit heavy and loud compared with the relaxed soundscape of the rest of the piece, although I did like the bass line that came in at :34. The progression is really slow, though, and the synth at 1:09 comes in without warning, which is a problem - and you do the same thing at 2:20, 3:45, and 3:53. I also think that at 1:10 the kick loses its distinction in the mix. There are a lot of good ideas here, but I think you could’ve put a lot more effort into the composition. Despite being very atmospheric and flowy, there’s very little phrasing or variety, especially with regards to dynamics or energy levels. I also don’t think it needed to be this long given the few changes in texture throughout, and I definitely don’t think you needed this much reverb in the piece , mostly because of detrimental effects to the mixing (especially during the busier sections). Overall, the composition is a little underwhelming, but the atmosphere, mood, and harmonies are really well done. Keep at it, Rahmemhotep! ;)


SoulSecure responds:

It was supposed to have vocals and that's why it's so long and not super complicated. I just ended up not having enough free time to do all that.

I enjoy the abrupt entrance of the loud synth used during the chorus and I've always been criticized on my transitions or lack-there-of, it's just how I do things sometimes. The only thing I might add to that abruptness would be maybe a loud crash cymbal or something.

I agree that as a standalone instrumental this piece is underwhelming. Eventually I'll slap some vox on it.

dang i actually really like this, the whole eternal suffering and anguish thing notwithstanding (ya think you could be a little more gentle with your message pls?). good stuff, great main melody. just turn down some of your reverbs. ;-)

SoulSecure responds:

Hell isn't gentle.

I'm obsessed with reverb, I can't stop myself!!!
