Such a great pace tgis song has, it gives me lyric ideas. In fact would it be fine that I added lyrics to this piece? I can't wait till you next piece!
I like the ominous mood at the beginning. That guitar sample isn’t my favorite, though, and the pacing is pretty slow. At :58, the percussion and pensive guitar/synth line mesh really well together. I think you could’ve used a stronger transition into 1:51, though, and the minimalism there made that part rather anti-climactic. The melodic content at 2:18 is enjoyable, but I still think the texture needs more fill. The more atmospheric part at 2:45 was a nice change, but this piece still feels a bit too drawn out and empty to serve as a stand-alone piece. Nice job with the phrasing into 3:38, but the minimalism thereafter felt really underwhelming again. I think you needed some sort of emotional height to hit this piece home. Overall, nice job with the mood and atmosphere, and the mixing is also fairly strong (despite a bit of a treble-heavy kick). The composition is a little lack-luster, but that’s your biggest problem here. Keep at it, Cursedsnake. ;)

Drop caught me offguard dude, that hit HARD!
I can tell you used similar instruments and themes from "devils pact" but with a more electronic focus. I really enjoyed devils pact and i like seeing more exploration into the genre from you.
This song is not remotely afraid to try new things and explore other ideas and i love it :)
I really enjoyed the electro synth vibes you have goin on around 3 minutes in as well, it really adds emotional depth to a piece that would usually be focused around one thing.
i wish you good luck in the NGAUC final round!
