D Minor, 155 BPM

Was frustrated with the much bigger project I was working on and ended up messing around and making this little dark post rock track in like 4 days. Hope you enjoy! The bigger project is also coming later this month! :)

Like derp says,

The composition is great, but the mixing needs some work

Don't worry tho, you very well know im the same way

Thanks! Yea that’s an area I’m gonna work a lot on.

10/10 composition
mixing neds improvment uwu

3YEOfficial responds:

Thanks and yeah the mix was kinda rushed, on my upcoming project I’m really gonna spend a lot of time on it

The mix sounds better this time. Still needs work on the transitions though. Looking forward to the track in progress!

3YEOfficial responds:

Thanks! Will work on those transitions :)

You are getting very good with atmospheres!
However, the main Drop sounds very weak compared to the tension at the beginning and the ending.
If you want a more powerful Chorus, then first make sure that everything is well equalized (f.e.: Bass should be dominant in the lows and it should have less high end than usual, the guitar shouldn't overrun the highs, since there will be a piano playing there, The Kick and the Snare should be audible, etc.) and also well mixed (it takes practice, but you'll get it down eventually).
It isn't bad, but there is room for improvement. I recommend you to listen to other artists and literally analyze their tracks, so that you can get a better understanding of what you could add to your track.

3YEOfficial responds:

Thank you for this review! The reason the kick and snare are so drowned out is because I mixed in reference to other tracks in the genre where the drums are more drowned out in the mix. But all the other stuff is very useful! And yeah I’m planning on spending some time analyzing other people’s work to better my mixes :)
