Fiery Determination

The first track I make with my newly acquired Fender Stratocaster!

Had visions of one on one battles between masters of sword arts in anime-like visuals showing their fiery determination to emerge victorious.

I usually don’t enjoy heavy metal but damn, this shit is amazing! It’s a bit repetitive throughout the first half in my opinion, but otherwise it’s a really cool track! Well done!

Let me begin by getting this out of the way, I fucking HATE stratocasters, I hate the wiry wussy tone they got when trying to get em filthy, I hate how they look, I hate how they're the most common fucking guitar style around. Fortunately, the tone on this shit is thick enough to please me, so that's fuckin great. On the playing, it's 100% certified not gay, I do however wish the synths were more 80's synthy, like Maiden in Somwhere in Time, that'd be radical. I really have nothing bad to say 'bout this, I wish I could play that cleanly and well, but eh, I guess I'm satisfied with what I got 'till now.

Good fuckin shit cap'n

I got a stratocaster with some proper metal pickups ;) A lot of the other fender's come with very weak but nice sound for accoustic stuff... I got the Yngwie Malmsteen Metal pickups for it, that's why it's not wussy :D

I love the description! Always had a habit of imagining stuff like that myself for epic music like this. Another personal favorite thing to imagine are people flying mechs or other types of vehicles crazy fast in epic anime style. Rock on!

I like how fast this could be! This is SO FAST to be in boss battle, I think :D
