I like the intensity at the beginning. The chord progression is a bit cliche, but the mix is loud and sharp. I wanted to hear a little more melodic content in the piece, as the guitar riffs get a little repetitive after a while. I also think you needed a bit more structural variety in this piece to provide some contrast with the near-constant energy and drive this piece has. The section at 1:54 begins to accomplish that, but the transition into 1:54 is also pretty abrupt. I like how the texture comes together a little more by around 2:30, although the pacing here is a lot slower than before. Still, the piece never quite returns to the intensity level of the first couple of minutes, which leaves me feeling a little underwhelmed at the end. I also thought the fade-out here was a bit lazy of a choice of outro. Still, the production quality is top-notch here, and I’m enjoying the frantic guitar harmonies and atmosphere of the piece as well. Keep at it, MosesX50! :)

Thank you, @TaintedLogic. I really appreciate your critiques. And thanks for the invite to the competition! I'll have to give it another shot next year, for sure!

Good start. really gets ya going. it has some power to it! It transitions very nicely. Got a little long before the calm but the double bass didn't hurt. I would have gone with a different bass for that melody but it works REALLY well. love it. A perfect fusion. I'm fucking in love with this song. Is it spoken for? Like, can I take it out sometime? On a date maybe? Oh. My. God. and then it fades out because of course it never stops. This baby just keeps on going. Great job!

MosesX50 responds:
