Note: please leave a vote on my music. Also a comment (I’d prefer constructive over praising) would be nice.)

Another song made in the area of Testificate 517, this time without any real melody to it, unlike my other music. This is great as a looping song in really scary ambiences or scenes. I made minimal use of instruments for maximum suspense.

The main reason for the title is because it’s a reference to Testificate 517, a super-intelligent monster-human being with a very high killing potential. He manifested his full form in the year 1988 (that’s why ‘88). Currently working on a story but I think I’ll have it on YouTube when it’s done.

Genre: Horror

Instruments: SFX, Pads

Finished on: June 25 2020

Well, in each case that means my song has had effect tho. 😅



I appreciate your response, thank you. :)

In terms of the title, It's good that you clarified. It sheds a little bit of light on what you're trying to do.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on this one. Without seeing what the story is, I can't say whether or not I think it fits.

Original 4-Star Review

"This piece is definitely eerie and creepy, like something out of the 3D Legend of Zelda games. I will say I'm not sure why you picked the title. Silent Killer works, but why the '88?

It loops seamlessly, which is nice.

I think you could go further with the instrumentation. Right now it's kind of minimal. If that's what you are going for, that's fine, but there's no indication that that is the case. My suggestion is that you add some additional creepy sounds here and there. They don't have to be in-your-face, but even subtle textures and note dissonance could enhance what you already have and make it even creepier. Think Metroid Prime 1-3, for example.

I hope you find this review helpful. :)

BlighterProductions responds:

The ‘88 is a reference to the year that a fictional character I made up called “Testificate 517” started to manifest itself in the year 1988. I’m currently working on the story but I wrote the music on purpose like this because I think it is relevant to such a story.

But thanks for yet another very helpful review. You’re the kind of people that need to make the comments.
