Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!
For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 201 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!
Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!
Had no idea you posted music as well. Impressive stuff.
- Production quality is splendid. There's a fair bit of polish that seems to have gone into this that elevates this amongst similar entries.
- The ambiance is thick without losing substance in the track by having to rely on too many counter-harmonics. I find that 'dark' tracks commonly stumble with this.
- The construction of the track in general is indeed cinematic. It has an introduction, topic, body and peters out in a manner that is relevant. I could very easily see this getting used in a show such as American Gods were it to have a little more eq/mastery work applied to it.
- The only thing I can think of (which at a surface level almost seems like a contradiction to my first point- but I assure you it is not) is that the track could use a little more eq/mastery work. While the ambiance is wonderfully established there does seem to be a degree of contention between the foreground and the background of the track. There is a "windy" sound which is introduced at 01:15 that seems a little overpowering at first. I could understand if the introduction is gradient and gradual while allowing the previous counterparts to gracefully fade out. Otherwise it seems as if there is too much contention going on for the listener to appreciate everything that is happening smoothly.
Anyhow, that's my two pesos. Wonderful stuff.
Keep at it,
Great atmosphere on this track, especially the ending section. Can't wait for the new ep :)
Solid production, it sounds really nice. You have some great textures in there, like the marching walk in the background and the distorted feedback that adds to a tense atmosphere. I really enjoyed it!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
