I'm really glad I gave this a listen. I've listened to it a few times. I like the song in pieces, but I don't feel they all fit together.

From 0:01-1:07 you have a solid intro that grooves real well.
Then from 1:07-2:07 things get strange. It feels like something you'd hear in a horror game, still building ambience before a major jump scare, or important spooky plot point.
The song shifts gears again at 2:08 and holds onto this new tone til closing that reminds me of something I've heard in Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze. Really good sound there.

I think all of these sections would be completely solid if they weren't so distinct from one another. The first and third sections fit pretty well together, but the center section feels to me like it breaks the song's cohesion. I think a simple solution would be starting the guitar in that middle section and build it up softly to where it ends up, instead of just rocking hard out of nowhere.

Nothing in here sounds wholy unpleasant, it's just the strange juxtaposition that that middle section leaves by breaking up something that would sound better without it. I'm ultimately glad I stopped and gave it a listen to start my day.

ORI-TAGGART responds:

Glad you enjoyed the track! I see what you mean by the middle section breaking the pace. I was trying to experiment a bit with song structure and just have some fun in general.

Thank you again for the constructive criticism and I hope you had a nice day!

UPDATE:

Thank you for clarifying. It clears things up.

Original 3 1/2 Star Review:

"I'm curious about what your thought process was when you made this piece. Knowing that information could help me provide better feedback as well as a more accurate rating. I'd also be better able to judge based on how well I thought your intent came through, rather than just judging by my own taste.

That said, I do like the piece. at 2:08 onward I get a real stoner-metal/desert rock vibe.

A couple of things to think about:

The title is quite interesting. Why did you choose that?

Also, the thumbnail artwork you provided for this piece is cool, but I don't quite see how it fits the vibe of the song. I'd like to hear your input on this as well.

ORI-TAGGART responds:

Thank you for critiquing and I'm glad you enjoyed the track!

As for my thought process, I was generally just having fun making this. I was streaming and tried making something a bit all over the place. After listening to the final product back and forth I analysed the vibe and picked the first song name that came at the top of my head. Also, I would be lying by saying that there was a deeper meaning for chosing that cover. I simply thought it was cool.

Again thank you for the constructive criticism! It is much appreciated and I hope you had a nice day!
