Preheat is somewhat of a familiar yet unfamiliar battle style dubstep track, I really wanted it to feel like a slow build up to the next song in this “trilogy” Thermite, I think I succeeded, but it depends what you guys think! So please be honest in your ratings and reviews, thx!

Interesting intro. I think that string synth probably could have benefited from more volume.

0:30 is a fairly new presentation style. I feel like we were really lacking the usual dubstep snare pattern there, and that would have beefed up the composition a bit. Also, section after was a very abrupt return to our intro.

The following build leads to a chorus that isn't bad but sounds like it belongs more in hiphop. Also, this track feels like it's totally lacking a bassline other than the drops. Drops additionally could probably benefit from coming down an octave. That's reeeeally high for a dubstep bass. I could play it on a trombone, without an F trigger.

I think everything roughly fits together. It's just there's no bass to give this track punch. Interesting writing, though!

I like the sounds and different tracks here, but they sound kind of awkward together. I can't tell if it's the timing or what, but it sounds like a bunch of good instruments were stuck together with Scotch tape. The part at 2:10 feels especially awkward, probably because one of the samples is cutting the other off.
