And the old is made new. Metal ballad based on an old project. Mixed blind. Critique appreciated.

Thanks to Bad-Man-Incorporated in the highest degree. Never would have gone back to this project if not for him.

Solid. The progression through out this is smooth and diverse enough to make it a good standalone listen. I get a SNES Final Fantasy vibe from this, love it! I'm not too sure, but the guitar sound sounds too fruit looped for me. The composition is dope though, real noice mesh here with the sounds and such. Powerful music!

Thanks, glad you liked! Yeah, the guitar I'm using is a Kontakt instrument from some years back. It's not the best, nothing like playing the real deal and not drawing notes on a keyboard, but better than my equipment. I'm surprised you didn't say anything about my bass, hahah. Shoot me a PM though. Never heard of "fruit looped". Curious if I can fix it.

Here from R4R.
You nailed the atmosphere on this one! With just a few instruments in the intro, I already knew what emotions you were conveying to me. The hats that come in the background around 00:39 give it a sense of movement while still feeling slow. The transitions are fantastic, and this song flows like water. I have no complaints or criticism about this track, honestly. The mixing is great. I can tell what you were trying to go for, and you executed it very well. The ending was conclusive and well made. 5/5, great job :D

I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for the review!

This is pretty great. It's halfway between hopeful and brooding, it gives a small feeling of "there's still hope." The bpm is just right for this kind of song and at 2:00 where the new instrument (sound?) comes in is a really nice touch. Very well done!

ADR3-N responds:

Thank. This was made in 4 tracks, one with Nexus piano and some preset lead I modified, one with Ample Sound Bass plugin, one with Oceanidae drums and some cymbals in Kontakt, and then Shreddage II. Probably not even properly mixed whatsoever.

Wow! This piece is full of hardy emotion. Sounds very much of the "I'm sad, but I don't like to show it much" kind of deal.

Loving the organic sounds of the guitar.
Nice one!

ADR3-N responds:

Hey! Thanks for the review. Glad you enjoyed it.

If you want my list of plugins, Kontakt -- Shreddage II and Metal Foundry drum bundle, and Nexus.

NEVER too late for music, motherfucker!!! Thanks for the tag! Glad to hear you go on this one!! A few years and it probably sounds a lot more as you intended...same with the potential I heard. Really dig it, a lot! 5!

ADR3-N responds:

Hey, I'm glad you're still around man! Thanks for the encouragement all those years ago. It was all I needed. :)
