Piercing Lazer - Trickster's Ambition (Instrumental)


Author Comments

The instrumental version of the new single from my new Piercing Lazer album, "Eyes of Purgatory Vol. 1", coming in the future. It's on BandCamp so buy it today (it would help me a lot)! Thank you all for supporting me this far, I love you all! :)

This is a remake of a song I made for a popular youtuber named Fiery Joker/Josh Scorcher, and I figured he could use a new version since he still uses the old theme haha. He loves this new version, and I'm happy.

The melody and tone of this song is fantastic (really love the choir, reminds me a bit of Equilibrium.) The structure is a little weak though. A few of the shortest riffs (good ones, to be fair) are repeated just a bit too much. More varied drums might have compensated for this, but the percussion feels kind of like it was neglected (in particular 0:59 almost sounds like you're building up for an EDM bass drop...)

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

Thanks! To be fair, it's a revised version of a song I wrote in 2013, so I didn't change much at all really. Thanks though. I could have done more with it but mainly it was kept simple because the version with vocals is a theme song for a youtube channel and was more so based on what they asked in the original version with the structure.
