Oh my god this is so awesome.
I really like the low octave just before that bridge thing.
Probably the best song you guys have ever done.
One of those "I wish I wrote this" ones.
I wish the vocals were better.
This is fairly well done, particularly the solos and drums. But overall it seems extremely repetitive and doesn't seem to go anywhere. There's no real ending either.
Alright. Fair enough.
As for the song seeming repetitive, I can see your point there. The lead guitar mainly does one four-measure riff that I use quite a bit throughout the song. However, that's why I broke those sections up between different types of riffs.
Regarding your points about it having "no real ending" and "not going anywhere," I think those statements are entirely up to personal opinion. I personally believe that I structured the song just fine. :P
Man, really diggin' on the vocals. Can I have your children and name them after G.I. Joes??
I really like what you have going here, but it's a little repetitive. It also sounds like it's in pieces, but the pieces have no specific order. just kind of "Willy nilly".
In the future, try to start softer and build up. this goes up and down and up and down. The Arpeggios are great though.
Parts arent willynilly! Here they are!:
Guitar Intro: 0:00 ro 0:06
Guitar and Arps and Intro: 0:06 to 0:13
Slayer Part 1: 0:13 to 0:28
Guitar Solo: 0:28 to 0:42
Arpreggio Solo: 0:42 to 0:49
Guitar and Arpreggio Solo: 0:49 to 0:56
Slayer Part 2: 0:56 to 1:03
The Final Stand 1:03 to 1:10
Guitar Outro 1:10 to 1:23
I agree with it being repititive. I will (eventually) make a song that starts soft and becomes RAWR! Well maybe not rawr but you get the picture.
Not bad at all
There are a couple problems in the beginning and the end where the main melody and the new melody that is introduced don't seem to mesh.
Otherwise, I love the chord changes and the fact that they're completely illogical (good thing). Keep up the good work, you can never have too much happy techno.
Decent for a first song
This is actually quite good, but it seems... Bland.
The transition arouund 1:10 is also a little awkward.
Try layering more synth at once instead of just moving the melody around, it seems to be lacking in the harmony department. Once you had the slightly different melody playing at the same time as the first melody it sounded quite good though.
Trying starting small and getting bigger to, it just started small and didnt really go anywhere.
Like I said before, this being my first work, I can only expect so much. Thank you for your review. ^^
I'm a big ska fan, and overall this is a good song.
The vocals are a little off. Still downloading. nice work
:/ Vocals again...Brian's gonna kill himself one of these days, you mean, mean people!
I kid. :P Thanks for the review, pal!
I only have two problems, the vocals get chopped very time you take a breath, and the guitar duet is a little square otherwise its pretty good
Well the choppy vocals are due to crappy compression, and I don't know what you mean by square. Thanks for the review though!
this a good song, except the vocals seem way too loud.
You also use the most used progression in all of music... EVER.
Not a bad thing though, over all it's a good song.
The vocals sound like shit cuz they were recorded at school in a bathroom during a detention in 7th grade on an imac laptop built in mic
Ive been tryng to write stuff like this for years, but can never get the words to sound right, you did.
The singer whould watch his range, there are a couple times that he sings to high and gos flat. Also some of the screaming sounds out of place. Otherwise it is a great song
