This track is built on the bones of other dead tracks. Distorting and forcing its way through your speakers, the relentless engine will devour all.


Ahh finally I run into a serious Rivithead sounding track. I'm a bit new so I'm still exploring all the sounds on this site. I like where it goes after 1:00 you let it hang with an abstract bridge and bring it back. The orch hits are well used and not over used either which makes it flow nice. The Dnb elements after 2:00 carry it well. . .

The only recommendation I would make is trim the mids in the mix a bit. I know MP3 is horrendous for industrial noise and the headroom it requires in terms of audio fidelity to shine but perhaps scooping out a bit of the mids will help separate the rhythmic tones from the distorted bass allowing their interplay to stand out a bit better.

Nice man very nice

A nice change from your usual music, I like it :)

This is what plays in my head every time a gym teacher towers over my head giving me a detention.

I like the dark mood and distorted drums at :10. All the dissonant chords at :43 set the scene really well. After a while, I think you overuse the chords a bit so that it loses its "shock value." I can't help but feel that you didn't do a lot with the treble range in this track, and it seems to be lacking some melodic content. Also, the ending was pretty sudden. While I like the energy and sense of direction in the piece as it is, I think it would be worth it to slow down the pacing sometime and give it a bit more overarching shape and structuring. Still, nice job with the mood and instruments. I can totally picture this in a video game, probably haunted house-themed. :)

Thanks! I kinda felt that way myself, that more could be done near the high-end. maybe I'll revisit it at some point :)

Other wise known as my brother...
