I liked that Metal Gear Solid sound at 1:18.
Amazing song, you have a great voice and the guitar riffs are incredibly catchy. You also did an amazing job on the lyrics, which is what I think really makes this song good. They're clever, cheeky, and rhyme well, I especially liked 'empty our arteries'. The only problem I had was the synth in the beginning, but that's just a personal preference.
Also, the ska-like breakdown in the middle of the song is AWESOME, I think the synth fit in well there.
I listened to some of your other songs, and I think this is the best. You should make more stuff like this.
Instrumentals are great, I really liked the 80's hair metal tapping solo, it fit strangely well.
Bassline is good as well, doesn't play just roots and has good fills.
Your voice is great too, has a kind of nasty punk sound like Anti-Flag's vocals, though not as furious.
I really like the solo my lead guitarist threw in there too. They are all a bunch of really talented guys. Thanks for the props on my vocals and thanks for taking the time to listen and write a great review.
Completely agree with previous review, your vox are pure shouting. Admittedly they're better than most things passing as Hardcore nowadays, there's some singing in there. Instrumentals are ok, though the 30 second breakdown was way too long.
Alkaline Trio song
Get out, all your songs are stolen.
You seriously need to get some real instruments instead of using guitar pro midis. This is a great song.
But, that ending, way too abrupt.
Great guitar riffs and drum beats. But, there is no way these are real instruments, it sounds like midi instruments from guitar pro or something.
It's a good start, the violin melody is well written and the percussion is used well. The bass/cello harmony is good, but repetitive. You should have different instruments take over the harmony, and change up the harmony as well, you used the same thing for pretty much the entire song, except for one portion where the violins stop playing.
The song has a bold feel to it, you should add some horns to add to that feeling, make a bigger sound.
Also, don't end the song the same way you started it, make an ending.
This would be good as background music for a video game or something, but for foreground music, you need to expand upon it and add more.
Yeah, I was trying to experiment with horns but my VSTi was giving me some funny business so I just gave up on it.
I think you're right, I really need to start experimenting with more instruments and changing things up subtly.
Haha the ending, yeah I know... But a few ideas kept falling threw so I said screw it, I really need to not do that.
Thanks alot, very insightful and I'll be taking these tips to my next work.
It's good despite how short it is. The tune is catchy and the lyrics well written, your singing isn't bad either. You still get a pop-punk voice without stepping into Blink-182 land of nasally whining. Try expanding it, you already have a good drum intro and current bit you have would make for a great chorus. Try and make a verse, a bridge, maybe a solo if you feel like it.
Instrumentals are great! Excellent, punky bass part. The only problem I have with it is the vocals, and it's only my personal preference. You sound a lot like Whats-his-name from Blink 182. You have that kinda nasally quality. It's not bad, a lot of people actually like it. Just not me.
