Reviews for "TDF - Sleep is for the Weak"

....

metal

TwilightNecrosis responds:

Yes indeed.

Throaty.

Fuck bro, those were some throaty ass evil vokills. This whole song was fucking kick ass.

For this style, I think it sounds pretty fucking close to pro as it needs to. I mean, what is pro sound? I fucking cranked this beast on my house stereo, surround sound, and headphones. It ruled like fuck on all those.

There was no overlapping frequencies, the instruments were all panned appropriately, and the vocals were dead center, piercing the "3rd eye" , as they should.

This is it, bruh. I'll be runnin it in my car stereo tomorrow..but something tells me it will be fine there as well.

Totally dig this fucker.

Current Score

3.60 / 5.00 (+ 0.23)

TwilightNecrosis responds:

BADASS. That's exactly what I wanted to hear.
I'll pass the compliments to my vocalist.
Thanks for the awesomely kind words; I'm glad I'm getting somewhere with this shit.
Metal! \m/

good mix

Although the drums are mixed to my personal preferences, they fit in the song well. Like the riffs pretty cool. Triplets at 1:00 sound evil as hell. Lol cool solo, sounds like something from the 80's before the sweeping comes in.

2:00, the vocal flow is fucking awesome, catchy. Cool song bro, awesome stuff. \m/

TwilightNecrosis responds:

What would you change, if you were mixing? I think the snare could come up just a tiny bit, but other than that I think they're pretty good.
I like that solo... I actually don't remember exactly how to play it, so I have to guess every time, haha.
Yeah, my vocalist really liked how that last verse and chorus turned out.
Glad you enjoyed. Wish you lived down here, so you could come to some of our shows; they're crazy.
Thanks for hitting me up; can't wait to get my hands on yer album. \m/

Good Structure

It seems that you took your time with this one and planned each step carefully.The structure is smooth and each riff fit perfectly.Even then, I still have some gripes with this song.The first riff sounded atonal, as if it wasn't following a particular scale.I could be wrong.

Another thing, I think you should fix the rhythm guitars that were under the solo at 1.27-1.37, during your sweeping.Figure out what scale you are on and try to hit the notes that the rhythm guitars are playing.If you wish to become a lead guy, try to learn the basics of keys,scales and time signatures.

As far as becoming pro is concerned, I went to your myspace to listen to your other songs as well.With the material that you are creating I think that it is a possibility.

TwilightNecrosis responds:

Yeah, I didn't write the song, just the solo.
As far as the sweeping, I'm playing a D minor shape, and the rhythm guitars ride the D for most of that passage, so it fits. I know quite a bit about scales and time signatures, but I don't always go by them; some of the coolest metal guitar solos ever written have off-notes and weird phrasing (Slayer fits that category well, haha).
And the going 'pro' thing... I wasn't talking about being in a professional band, I was talking about being a professional recording tech. I guess it says something about my recording skill, that the quality was transparent enough for you to make that mistake. XD
Thanks for the listen-through, man; I appreciate it.

[title]

ah, there you are! bout time you showed up, haha. like the sound of this man, badass and brutal. kickass playing and awesome vox. sounds great, keeps high quality. great work \m/

TwilightNecrosis responds:

Yeah man, this is my full band. I'm lead guitar and right rhythm, my other guitarist is on the left, and the bassist and vocalist are actually brothers, haha.
Oh, and the drums are triggered by an electronic kit that my drummer borrowed and played on, so that was pretty cool.
Thanks for the words, amigo.
