Let the riffing begin.
This submission is so good, I can't really find any flaws in it. Its so damn dark and brutal!
Glad you didn't find flaws. Thanks for the review, dude!
A great improvement from ''Hush''.
I was not expecting this song to be as good as it is. You have impressed me greatly as to how much you have improved musically.
I really enjoyed your distorted riffing and how your voice compliments your instrument. I think that every riff connects perfectly and sounds great. The only thing that I think you could have improved was the guitar solo towards the end. I felt that it could have been more ''shreddy''.
Other than that, I enjoyed listening to your song. Keep up the good work!
Hey! Thats my guitar solo! lol
It turned out to be great man. Honestly I think its long enough. You don't need to make it any longer. Its brutal song!
This song was all around solid. Nothing felt forced at all. The drum programming was great, I loved the Tom rolls. The snare was punchy as well. I also liked how you used your voice in a melodic manner at-
Hear our cries
The guitars were rediculously heavy as well. And my only complaint is that your drum samples could have been better. But even then, you did a good job at mixing them in, thus defeating the purpose of my critisism.
I know, I'm always looking for better samples. However, I've been able to make these fit in, somewhat. I wanted to program a little more complex for this song, but I didn't like more complexities, as it detracted from other stuff.
Thanks for the review and vote, man. Glad you dig it. \m/
This song is really entertaining to listen to. You should do more of these in the future. Also, be sure to have looping drums in the background in your future projects.
Good stuff homes.
I can't believe that you wrote this when you were 13.I call bull shit on that.(A compliment) I never could have conceived something like this when I was playing guitar at 13.Anyways..As for the actual song.
At certain parts I felt that it dragged on for too long.A little too much riding on the low B/C? for my liking.I felt that this song could have been better if it had lyrics and a cool harmonic minor/phrygian type lead.Other than those minor flaws I felt that this song was REALLY solid.
The synth/piano fade was very nice.
Good stuff, dude.
Haha thanks dude! XD
It is a bit long and repetative, I agree. It was originally designed to be a long, atmospheric end to an album.
I'm glad you liked it, thanks for the review!
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.
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.
Its good, but it needs a little improvement.
Compared to your older cover (Arise) your production has improved.The Guitars are great and 100% mud free.Your drums samples are EQ'ed in nicely as well.Really, the only complaint I have is in regard to the Bass.
I was disappointed that you didn't play the three chord intro with a bass, like in the original.I also felt that the bass was too muddy at 3:14.It sounds like you are using too many chorus effects.
Other than the minute issues with the bass, this cover is great.
Thanks, I plan on rerecording all of the guitars and make them a little bit more solid. I am not happy with anything on this track to be honest lol. I could'nt find a good distortion for the bass intro so once I find a good one I'll redo it. Thanks for the review.
First of all, I would like to say that the guitars are great.They're extremely tight and in time with the drums.You pretty much got the song down note per note.However, I do have some minor issues.Well, I think the overheads could have mixed better.They're just too bright / trebly.
And another thing, the rhythm guitars are a little on the muddy side.From the sounds of it, it sounds like you're using an Alnico pickup.Other than that, your cover is flawless.
Nice job dude.
Yeah, the guitar tone is a little muddy but I want to redo it and make it a little bit more tighter on that part. Thanks for listening! Oh I am using EMGS its just the fact that guitar is tuned low with some super slinks 10's. Thicker gauge strings would help make it sound less muddy.
