The guy below who says the bass is a bit repetative and the bass drum is weak is crazy. This song is perfect as it is; doesn't get too repetative, it's nice and long but with lot's of content, amazing transitions. The list goes on.
I'm stunned at how well this is put together, keep up the fabulous work.
I wouldn't say he's crazy, its just an opinion! lol For someone who doesn't like repetitiveness, this song sure is chock-full of it! I'm glad you liked it though.
Thanks for the review!
You can't have an opening and closing hi-hat with double bass at the same time!
What is this blasphemy?
But really, great work.
I always cheat! i can't play fair XD lol
Don't get me wrong, this song is great. It's well produced and well composed. The problem I really have is the fact that it sounds almost EXACTLY the same as the countless songs released by Blink 182 and similar bands. It's built very similarly aswell (only singing at some parts, switching between lighter and heavyer riffs, etc.). It almost sounds like you just tried to get as close to sounding like Blink 182 as possible. which makes sense because they are a good band (even if they arn't my style) but it's just too too similar.
It's really cool, just a bit repetative, and needs to be a bit more drumy and bassy. Anyway, it's wicked cool, nice work.
Could be better.
It's a great start, really cool, but it needs more sounds in it (as I would call it), especially some real drums, and it needs to be longer but at the same time less repetative. The synths are good so some more variation would make it great.
I see I can try that Thanks for the review.
Here's how it could have been better.
First off, way too repetative. This should be about two minutes maximum.
The real problem is that the riff switches between being cool then being stupid. The first 6 seconds are cool, but every part of the main riff after that just doesn't go with it. The drums and bass and all the random effects are pretty cool, but since the main line sucks the song just gets ruined. (Especially the part around 00:42, really really bad) The small break around 1:00 is fine and the one around 3:25 is too.
I recomend that you make some new variations in the riff, but show it to some friends first to make sure that people will like it. (and I do realize that I may be the only one who thinks this) Just make 30 seconds of riff, switch to a break, more riff, break, then riff and end it. something like that, just make it alot shorter. (I don't know if break is the right word but whatever) Anyway, it has alot of potential but turned out worse than it could have been.
Bingo, the review I've been looking for :D
A big issue I had with the guitar was that it actually only gave me the right kind of sound on only a few notes, so I was forced into working with just one key. Slayer tends to do that, even if it's a homemade instrument *shrug*
While I doubt I'll do another remix of this song, I'll definately check those segments you mentioned and see what I can do to do it better next time around
thanks for the review, it really helps me out in the long run!
Let me give you some advice. First off, stop releasing five songs a day and start taking more time with the quality of each piece. Be sure to put enough effort forth to make a two to three minute song (three would be better). Get enough sounds into the song so that it doesn't get too repetative but at the same time be sure that all the sounds combine well, and make your songs more intense. Pretty much every song I have heard by you sounds like it's missing something, they arn't intense enough. This is caused moslty by your simple beats with a snare that sounds scratchy.
Nearly all your music sounds like it was put together in about ten minutes of work. Add some cool transitions, breakdowns, and all that other cool stuff. And most importantly, show your music to someone you know (a friend or family member) and don't publish any songs until you get their input and make sure that everything they complain about is taken care of. Good luck.
Great intro to start it off
This song was put together amazingly well. The intro gets my attention right away, and then the song just has an amazingly cool sound to it. It changes up enough to keep it from getting boring. Great work.
Some pretty damn fine work.
This song is really cool. Although it is rather short, and it doesn't loop well, the 2 minutes is just amazing. Great work.
thx, glad you liked it, the reason it's not looping well is because this ver. is rendered to mp3 instead of wave. I have it exported to .wav on my HD as well, but the filesize was too big for the upload =/
Whats up? This is some damn fine work. Absolutely amazing intro. A few problems though. The drums are too simple and repetative. The whole song is good for about 2 minutes, but then it just sounds like it loops again. Hey, no big deal though. It sounds so cool the repetativness is barely noticable. Great work. I use Sony ACID music studio 6, by the way. Keep this great music up.
