In this song, I get on my soapbox and talk about people soapboxing too much

Influnces range from thrash metal (metallica, bathory) to metalcore (converge, etc.) and even black metal (darkthrone, deafheaven).

Also, tis' the first song ever where I used programmed drums. I finally wrote a song requiring a drum part too complex for me to play:'(

Everything done by me.

You treat compassion like a crown, a piece of jewelry to flaunt through town
You’ll swat a fly and act a hero, but retreat when the hornets swarm
Clicking away at the intangible enemy, with your arsenal of key cladded weaponry
Posting a pointed satirical image, you show that pig fuck who’s the boss

Crass lowly shit talk won’t ever bring them down
Through seas of conjecture, they still wear the crown

Providence waits at the end of a war, or so I’ve been foretold
Caress your virtue and shine the beacon (of godly light you hold)
It seems such a flimsy task, to balance the weight of the world
Unto such a hopeless demand, (with a hope , for change so grand)

I now know where to aim my arrow, I know not which bow to use
This war of wires and lcd, is a waste of precious memory
If I could see for a day what hope looked like, I’d probably fucking cry
Cause ’if i’ve learned anything at all, fear and violence are human destiny

A clown knows all the tricks and a pig, all the ground
A nation built by both, indicative of what we’ve found

The arrangement of this song is great, but I'm not sure why the rhythm guitar is almost all on the right side. Makes it very hard to listen to. I can hear that it seems double tracked but the left channel is just sagging.

Actually, it seems like the track has been panned 20% right as a whole. I started questioning if my gear was malfunctioning.

Drums are also buried in the mix, and it sounds like your cymbals are all 127 velocity. Vary those some. I'm not sure if they're also intentionally lo-fi.

Other than that, great song aimed at the SJW keyboard warriors. Fix that and this will go on my repeat playlist. :)

I'm also fairly sure this is punk for the most part and not metal but I'm willing to suspend disbelief that it could be a hybrid of some kind. No score deduction there btw.

Thanks for coming out to NGUAC!

This was so metal, I dig it. Good song!
