At long last we have MC11 up and ready to be devoured. Thanks to Matt Jolly (Krinkels) for having faith that I'd create a OST worthy of this series.

Death, dispair... MADNESS. All in just one song

Hi can I use this in my Geometry Dash level?
Thanks!

My favorite Madness track so far, the choir in the background is amazing!

It really fits MC11. Also I noticed you used "Holo Drone" from the stock FL STUDIO sounds. It still fits in nonetheless.

I like the ominous mood at the beginning and the energy. The synths sound a bit gritty and unpolished, and some of the drum samples are a little cliche too. The piece is also a little slow to progress at the beginning, but I like the more legato elements of the texture by around 1:30. I think the mixing effects on the drums, especially the reverb, is a little excessive, and negatively affects the clarity of the texture. There’s a good sense of climax into 2:22, and overall I like the indistinct synth riffs and foreboding mood here. That said, I would’ve liked to hear some more structural variety, melodic content, and gradual transitions. Right now, there’s a lot of high-impact rhythmic material and angry synths in the texture. The composition might have a bit more shape if you had a couple of extended atmospheric sections or something. The piece is also long enough that it’s hard to stay grounded in any structural repetition after a while. You also overuse the echo-y effect at 7:09 (and plenty of other places). I appreciated the extended moment of thinner texture at 7:25, and also the somewhat sleepier end to the piece, even if I typically regard fade-out endings as pretty lazy. It seems like the thrill of the great battle scene you’re portraying has subsided in the midst of all the cries of the injured and dying. Overall, solid work with the sound design, mood and atmosphere, and harmonic content. The compositional details and mixing could both use some tightening, though. Keep at it, Cheshyre! :)
