Wow. This is mixed really well. Congrats

Strong rhythm guitar throughout. Chugs at 1:04 are groovin'. I do find myself wanting a little more busy instrumentation on these sections.

My only real complaint is mixing. Drums are a little flat. Probably could use tape saturation to liven up that snare. Orchestral elements are seemingly louder than rhythm guitar and bass.

Siiiiiick guitar riffage at 2:10. Seems to be alternating between locrian or phrygian and harmonic minor.

Overall, the writing of this track is just great, a nice blend between electronic, symphonic, and metal elements. You've made a lot of really brave compositional decisions, and they have paid off. Now, if only someone would get on that master bus and pump it, my life -- I mean this song -- would be complete.

Thanks for turning out to this year's competition!

Ps, smoking lead at 5 minutes. Really drove things home.

---Official AIM review---

I like the mellow yet adventurous vibe at the beginning, as well as how that quickly evolves into an energetic, frantic texture at :25. The transition at :40 could’ve been a tad smoother, but the texture is really full and engaging here. The bell-like melodic instruments and the gritty guitars really mesh well together to provide a good balance of frequencies. At the same time, I appreciated the heavier section at 2:10 as a driver of structural variety. I think transitions are something you should work on. There was another rough one at 3:14. I really appreciate the dynamic contrast offered at 3:36 and the more distorted elements at 3:36. I guess my main complaint is that the piece loses a bit of cohesion with its vast array textures, fast pacing, and numerous melodies. These factors combined to make it a bit hard to follow the structural framework of the piece. That said, you really hit the track home with the solo at 5:05 and the subsequent final refrain, despite the sudden ending. The production quality is very good here, and I especially applaud your ability to bring out the drums clearly despite the heavy guitars. Keep up the good work, NahuPyrope!

A bit close!, 6 string with an 8 string string set, tuned to drop A, to be honest, I never listened to much Plini, I know him by name mostly, I should listen to some of his stuff, I heard he's great!

Thanks dude!
