So, I didn't really want to participate in this contest at first, but then I saw that there were already like 7 pages of submissions, which means there's a LOT of people joining in. Also TaintedLogic's message was a good kick in the rear to finally go in. And, in the end, I decided to create this. Hope you'll like it!

Nice intro here. I definitely feel the biggest critique is going to be mixing. Intro is very reverb heavy -- I'd low cut that wet up to 250 hz, take down the send some.

Drop 1 is nicely done. 1:39 continues with interesting noises to enjoy. Like flying through a field of buzz saws and electric drills.

Yeah, really, mix is all I feel is necessary to comment on. Everything else is if not passable, then good. Your sub in sections like 2:53 I would bring up, maybe even compress those sections a bit more. The percussion is a bit too loud in those very naked sections, especially with a sidechain.

By 3:36 it sounds like the whole song is destructing at points. I have no way of seeing what you were envisioning writing it as it speeds up rapidly and is over quickly. Maybe append one last drop there.

By 4:06 I'm wanting to end with a nice minor i piano chunk chord.

Thanks for coming out to NGUAC!

Bruh, thanks for actually providing opportunities like that! And I don't think I've ever gotten a review that thorough before on a track.

This is GREAT! But you might want to work a little bit on your mixing. :p

IAmDeadOnTheInside responds:

Yup, I definetly should, but, try as I might, I never get it right (that rhymes lol).
Still, thanks!

this is honestly some crazy stuff man!

IAmDeadOnTheInside responds:

Thanks, there's more coming! And I also can't wait for the results of your contest, there are some serious bangers to choose from.


Yo this is fire!
