Reviews for "Zero Hour (2011)"

Boom Baby!

Hey, I like the message you are conveying with this song and I think you kicked some ass while doing it!

You got some sick rhythms, sweet solos, and the strings only seal the fuckin' deal! Keep it up man!

Near the mark...

As a piece of music, I would rate it a 10/10, you've done awesomely with this track. But I've given it an 9/10 because you were trying to combine all parts of metal. I'm not sure you got EVERYTHING. If you do a revision of this, see if you can jimmy some math metal complicated passage in there, cause I'm hearing more and more of that in metal these day. Also. Um. I didn't hear any instances of that sorta "screech" you hear in a fair bit metal. Like at the end of a passage the guitars just go "wooooorrrp!" Do you know what I mean? I find it hard to explain. But I feel as a collection of everything metal into one song, those sort of elements should be added in there.

But on it's own, this is fucking brilliant. 9/10, 5/5 and downloaded. You sir win at life.

I know exactly what you're talking about, but that's not really from the pure essence of the "metal" genre. That's more of what you hear from the newer sub-genres of metal. It's not really trying to convey EVERY style of metal, but it focuses on the core elements of the genre, sure minute elements were excluded, but the point was made and it was done very well. I do have more "metal" that you are referring to on my website! Check it out on my website: matthewpablo.com Thanks again for the review and feedback!

Nice combo !

This is in fact a very interesting piece. I must say I think you achieved your goal. Although, some transitions still feel like forced the music fits nicely. The guitar solos are what makes this music live. I do have to criticize the ending however. Your music should end at the 4min mark ... Somehow you decide to abruptly add a new set of drums (which feels like forced IMO) with the guitar. I believe you could have done it sooner.
Either way, nice work.


This deserves to be in front page. I wonder if I should search the rest of your audio repository :P

Thanks for your review! This is the newest version of this song where I added a "finale" section for my live performances. The song originally did cut off around the 4 minute mark. Also, you can find all my music at matthewpablo.com Again, thanks for the review!


It reminds me of tekken when you verse like devil and jinpachi and stuff. Great Stuff

Hmm... That sounds pretty close to what I was going for!
