too repetative, solid beat, smooth flowing.

I didn't quite like the guitar in this piece, it just didn't have enough power to move me, nor was it clean enough to sway the song in that area. The percussion WAS a neat addition no doubt, but I felt this song was far too repetetive. Even with the mindset that the player would not be paying much attention to it while playing.

I also felt that the song could have had some more bass to it, perhaps some bass strings? A pad? Something.

The percussion was neat, well done, the distortion on those drums really gave it a punch, though again I am left with the desire to hear more from them.

Good track, though too repetative for my liking. Keep up the good fight and keep em coming!

Thanks for taking the time for the review.
I do have to agree that it is repetitive. But I have to face the fact that it may be in a game and well, I was limited to 1-2 min. I opted to keep it around 1 min and lets face it any song played over and over (that was constructed to be 1 or 2 min) being looped will be repetitive.

"The percussion was neat, well done, the distortion on those drums really gave it a punch, though again I am left with the desire to hear more from them."
- I've learned from being in a band and being in the studio a few times that if you make it short n sweet people always want more. But if you make it too long, you lose them. So, I'd rather leave someone feeling disappointed wanting more as opposed to annoyed and wanting it to stop. :) The drums were moreso the focus, it's actually two tracks of people stomping on a wooden floor. I tweaked them to give it beat/army/battle marching vibe.

However I'd have to disagree with two things (1) the guitar track and (2) adding strings.

When the song was constructed I attempted several sounds with the guitar track. In the end I felt that without distortion, the guitar track would lose it's feel.

There is a bass track and I tried to maintain it's levels as not to blow out low end speakers(example, cheezy tv speakers) yet if being played on a good speaker set, it'd be audible. Adding string would compromise the feel once again - I was shooting for metal-ish and yet again minimalistic feel and sound.

Thanks again,

Cool shiat!

Awesome groove there. Nice use of fx. Especially like those "fuzz / distorted" drums in the beginning and later on.

Cool stuff dude!

Thanks, you know how it is sometimes, you think people will appreciate it and then it gets slammed(moreso when you enter it into a contest lol).

I appreciate the compliment.
