You did a really got job at this! I've got nothing to say about the drums, they are perfect the way they are! The tune that starts to fade in at 0:14 is good too, it builds very well up! But at 0:50 the pause is a tiny bit too long, I can't tell exactly how. And I don't think the bass suits this song very well at 0:53, but then at 1:08 it sounds better. If I were you I'd make it a bit more glitchy, that's the only thing that bothers me a bit :)
So, in general, EPIC! But you need to do some finishing touches to get the full effect. I'm sure this can be something good!
Thanks for this feedback! What exactly don't you like about the bass? Do you think it does not fit to the rythm? Or do you not like the sound of the bass? Im pretty bad at equalizing, I'm not really happy with how the bass sounds at the moment myself :/
Yeah of course I will do some finishing touches, this is just what I did in 3-4 hours yesterday evening, I'm planning to make this track probably about 4 minutes long and ofcourse I have to add some more background noises and maybe some pads / sound effects, cause it sounds a little bit empty on some places.
In the beginning I had the idea it was more going to be an electro song than a rock song, but at 0:16 I got convinced it's a rock song. The main refrain is more happy than bad-ass, which is different from most rock songs, and I really like that! The kicks that come in at 0:08 are good and not too complicated. The part from 0:32 to 0:48 are missing some vocals though. It could just be me, but I think every rock song should have some vocals in it. They don't really need to be about something, but just some words that make sense.
Anyways, you did quiet well on this one!
This is really good! But I want to give you some advise, on certain parts of the song. The intro should be a bit longer without the main loop as a start, or if you want it to start with it, you need to make the intro quiet a bit shorter.
When the bass comes in, I'd like it to be a bit more deeper. And a bit later at 0:25 I would make the main loop cut off between the brakes. Or you could make the reverb take some more time.
I don't really have anything to say further more, because the song so far is just great!
Also, a question. Is you real name Max?
Thanks for the advice! No my name is actually Gray... go figure
I like how in the beginning it is calm, and the way it gives you a chance to listen to the refrain. And the explosion of epicosity is awesome at 0:08. I see it has some Glitch Hop influences in the drums, which is cool! It's not compicated, just simple, as it should be. The widening at 0:38 fits perfectly with the pause, and that pause is juuuuust long enough. The part after that is very cool too! Its raw and sounds drained, the way I like it (please don't misunderstand me here). The end is also very nice done, it slighty fades away.
The intro is okay, but I think it's kinda abrupt and it also sounds you didn't putt a lot of effort in it. I mean, it start immediately and I don't like it that way. And the bass that comes in at 0:08 is cool. And the loop at 0:24 is rather anoying than cool, because it's always at the left side. But then, LAWD ALMIGHTY! I don't know what you're doing at 0:40 but it's awesome! It's sounds just like Faithless. And YOU should replace them! But, I'll continue with my review...
I really like the drums that come in at 0:12. They are simple and give you a power which makes you think you can do anything. And than that smooth loop at 1:44 makes you calm and stuff. But I'll have to tell you this, when they mix up at 1:17 they don't sounds good at all. I'm talking about that loop that sounds like Faithless and the one that dropped in at 1:44.
But in overall, it's a good song. Almost no complaints :D
Almost?? lol cheer for the very honest review oh and your use of LAWD ALMIGHTY.
When I saw you made a new song I was thinking, probably a new dubstep song, but then I clicked it and saw it was D&B. So I took the time to listen and review it, so here it goes!
The intro is just perfect! It gets your attention and you feel something big is about to happen. It's also a great fade from the piano to the guitar! And there's that feeling that keeps building up, it gives you some kind of energy. I'd change nothing about it, cause it's juuust purrfect! And I really like how the guitar is plucked when it's calm, it's so relaxing. It's like you have just ran miles and still have enough will to run even further. I also have no idea how I could improve something about the refrain. It's very smooth and I like how there are unregular sounds.
So yeah, you just earned yourself a 10 mate!
I really like this song, both original and this one. But this one, needs to have a deeper kick at 0:32. Atleast, if it's possible. And really like the raw part at 0:57. I could never do it better myself. But at 1:25 I would make the music louder slightly, not that you can hear it get louder.
So yeah, awesome work and keep it up.
PS: Saw you're pretty popular at YouTube, though you only have like 3 vids... That deserves a subscription!
I'd start the song with a different drum. Perhaps a cool soundeffect, but not just some drums. When the kick comes in it's very static, until the bells come in, which sound just the same as 'Smalltown Boy' from Bronski Beat. But when the pad comes in it sounds just awesome. Later on, the refrain, sounds just wonderfull! That simple but powerfull little sound finishes it off.
And now, finsh it it goddamnit.
So, I'm writing this review while I'm listening to it okay.
The beginning is very good, it's kinda sad at first and it really drags you in to it. But when the kick comes in it sounds a but unmastered, though, it feels so fresh and alive. It's also a very good thing that you change the main loop, and still make it sound the same. And it's awesome when you make the loop a bit dirty around 3:45. But from then on, it only repeats itself, so I'd work on that if I were you.
So, keep it up and keep making music!
Well, in the first 10 seconds you're building something up. But then it goes all the way down, there is no climax. And when the kick comes in, I notice the tempo is way to fast. Then at 0:30 it's the cool part again, but it would fit so much better with Drum 'n Bass instead of the random beats that come in at 0:40.
So, keep making music. But never ever of this genre please...
when my rank goes lower I'll consider it, but when my score is keeping a steady 4/5... well why the hell would I back away from this :/. And the tempo is dead on, you can tell cuz each part flows to the next. And btw this is not an original it is a metal rendition. And what random beats are you talking about? Im very confused since Im using triplets on the bass. And all my music are of this genre, just without synth you could say.
Anyway thank you for the comment, and thank you for taking a listen and dealing with my rant...
