I decided to combine most of the styles I used to write before: house leads, dubstep basses at the end, rock/metal guitars, DnB drum parts, etc.

Made with Harmor, Harmless, Sytrus and FL Slayer.

176 bpm

This was really good! Don't really have any complains :)

get a new plugin, Slayer isn't really that good imo
the drop is overall, a meh from me, the idea is great but it's loud, sounds like it's lack of mixing
also, bad snare

GDRyuHayabusa1988 responds:

I tried to layer two snares, and I thought it sounded good. But when I did the mixing, I realized that it sounds weak and a little inappropriate for a drop, but I didn't want to change it to something else, so I left this snare.
Hmm, trying other VST for guitar instead of FL Slayer is good idea.


Thank you for clarifying.

I didn't mention this in the original review because I didn't think it was relevant at the time, but when you said you were trying to be spooky, I remembered this:

Regarding the quieter parts of the track especially, the melodies you came up with reminded me of a level in the old Gamecube game, "Wario World", specifically the level where there are spooky elements (skeletal enemies, ghosts, strange mansion rooms). From my perspective, what you created was, in a way, spooky, albeit like a cartoon rather than serious and realistic. Given the generally non-spooky genres you mashed up to create this piece, I think it's a good attempt.

I hope this helps. :)

Original 3 1/2 Star Review:

"I'm wondering what your thought process was when you made this piece. I think it would be beneficial if you put that in your description. That way I could base my review on how well your intent came across rather than simply by my own taste. Also, I may be able to provide better feedback and a more accurate rating as a result.

Not sure how the title or the thumbnail artwork fits with the music. Could you explain why you chose those elements to be what they are?

The title in particular seems to bear no relation to the song, making this submission as a whole feel a little unfocused IMO.

Well, I will try to answer this question

Not sure how the title or the thumbnail artwork fits with the music. Could you explain why you chose those elements to be what they are?

When I started making this track, I wanted to do something spooky, more atmospheric and a little bit epic, which is what the first 20 seconds turned out to be. However, over time, I added more electronic instruments, focusing in some places on the subject that I was aiming for. For example, on 2:12-2:21 and 4:00-4:21, as for me, the lead I wanted turned out; I don't know why, but I always associated this sound with something spooky. When I finished the song, it probably didn't turn out the way I intended, but for me these melodies remained the same, so I chose the title and the thumbnail artwork that I thought were appropriate.

I hope I didn't write too badly, because I'm not good at English.

This is really good
