The Garden of Eden

Author Comments

I started this project on November 2017 and finally finished it in July 2018. Overall, I was really inspired by a great number of different artists such as Xtrullor, Au5 and Alon Mor. I really got out of my comfort zone by trying out a new style. I also tried to make every part of the song as loud as possible.

In case you didn't know what is The Garden of Eden (you really should). It is a lengendary garden of God told in the Bible and it often represents heaven.

Used synthesizers:
- Sytrus
- Massive
- Razor
- Kontakt with the Kontakt factory library
- Harmless
- Sampler
- Directwave

The song took me about 130 hours to make.

***IMPORTANT: Please note that some samples used in the song aren't made by me: The orchestral drum loops are bought from Prime Loops. The rainforest sound effect at the beginning and the end and the night cricket sound starting at 1:33 are royalty-free samples downloaded from youtube via youtube to mp3. I had to use these samples from external sources because I couldn't create them with my current plugins. All these samples have been at least EQed and modified with other effects, so they don’t necessarily sound the same as their original sound.

We all know where the reviews come from. Thank you, X's list of favorites.

I am giving a bit smaller rating because the culmination is underwhelming and very unfitting. The sound design was fine (especially the Razor if it's what you used in the drop), orchestra even better, but the arrangement and diversity of sounds especially in the drop just wasn't at the level I expected it to be after hearing the magnificent intro.

Don't get me wrong, this is a pretty good song, and even the drop that I didn't exactly like is not bad. I would've given this a 3 star but because of the effort that took to make this song happen 3.5 stars will be my rating.

This is sooooo good! I had to make a review just to give 5 stars cause it really deserves it! :D

Tennon responds:

Thank you!

Religious title? Ewwwwwwwwwwww (jkjk)

Great song, dude. It's been a while since I've listened to you, but there needs some improvements.

-For the style, the bass is too stiff for an Xtrullor-styled song. It needs to be a bit more smooth (idfk I'm bad at describing)

-Drops are a little too underwhelming for my liking, but hey, do what you want here.

(I'm bad at this XD)

Tennon responds:

This is actually not supposed to be Xtrullor-styled, I just took his idea of fusing orchestra and dubstep together!

It's been a long time since I've seen you. Your music great as usual, better than mine of course.

I might make a song... Soon... In Valve time.

Hope to see you become the next big NG artist. Peaceee

Tennon responds:

Wow, thanks for the support! You too are a very potential big artist though!

OMG Tennon! You did really great! Actually, even though I heard some of your songs like Ceres and The Cursed Room, this is my first time to review your work and it is job well done! We are both getting our inspiration from Xtrullor to our songs!
So let us go now to the technical aspects:
1.) Your orchestral Intro is very calming. So for me that is a good point!
2.) Your orchestral verse, before the build up, is the best part of your song. It is very moving and epic! So that deserves another good point!
3.) Your sound design regarding to the bass parts is very well mixed. That is a point. BUT, you lacked the balance of the orchestra in the drop! Oh no! The feeling was like:
--Gosh this is the orchestra! It is so good! The build up, I cant wait yo the drop! Waaah The basses are a bit lonlely!-- Got that? And some parts of the drop has an out of place synths...
Other than that, it is very nice! You improved so well! And I hope you do some more piano covers for Xtrullor! Seeyah! BTW, I am also an Asian from the Philippines! (Who cares? :)

Tennon responds:

Wait, how did you know that I did piano covers?
