I love this one. This song sounds GREAT. I have to add this one to my favorites. It is eerie and cold. Almost sounds like background music to a baron winter desert land.
The only thing I didn't like which kind of disrupted the mood a little bit was at around 0:33 the bells or something become a little piercing for my ears. It's a little too high frequency for my taste.
Other than that you did a fantastic job of creating such a melancholy cold sorrowful song. I gave this a 5 and added it to my favorites. Have a good one :)
Well, thanks a lot for the comments, I never actually noticed that the pitch of the bells you mentioned is too high since my headphones have a whole lot of bass, so it dulls the sound a bit. Also, I never thought about it as background music for an icy setting, I guess I was too concentrated on getting the feeling of the contest and depict the emotional side of it. I'm glad you liked it, and thanks for taking the time to review!
i am so glad that i didn't stop looking after your user page after i've read that you eventually want to collect sufficient tracks for a new CD and so it would last a long time till your audience will be capable of hearing anything new.
that is one hell of a good happy hardcore and d'n'b mix !
the beginning reminded me a bit of pendulum.. which song was that ?
further on perfectly high-speed and .. happy :3
still including the phenomenon of your songs being written in the unmistakeable zero-bass-style but remaining newly.
despite of me liking the "whole" song very much also, it was obviously a very good idea to submit the looping part also. proven with score difference.
finally you gathered all the instruments necessary to make a perfect song ^_^
i hope very much that you'll catch a good label. you have proven for years that you deserve it.
one the other hand, i hope you keep submitting tracks on newgrounds no matter what quality. they are all unbeatable.
regards, thanks (also for inspiration) and best wishes for future
Thank you for the long and awesome review Oddler!
That track of Pendulum..you know while i created the song i didn't even noticed the similarity :D..yes the intro reminds of "Blood Sugar"
Thank you Oddler ;)
I swear this is an iPod commercial song haha
This song is one of those songs that stick in your ears for the rest of the day. I really liked the guitar, although it was a little repetitive. The drums were nice, liked them. Also, I liked the low sound parts of the song, mostly the one with 50 seconds in the song.
This kinda sounds like that one song from the old Apple iPod commercials....I think there is a small hint of The Vines (I think that was the bands name that did that old iPod commercial)
It's way too bad this is only a darn demo. It's received so many friggin' views sinced it launched a year and a half ago...really great job. I have a feeling this song won't be transformed into a real bonafied non-demo song though, lol. The only real complaint I have with this song is that it ends too soon, lol. Great work, man.
I've never seen a song get so many hits! Truly an accomplished song.You are destined to become one of the greatest video-game music makers of all time. This song reminds me of the music off of one game... Iridion 3D... except for the fact that it is like 20 some odd times better.
I have no idea how many times I've listened to this, but it's a rather large number.
I am compelled by how well orchestrated the song is.. the melody, the harmonies, counter-melody, percussion, FX, filter cuts... It's.. really well put together, well.. all of your songs seem to be.
I hope you get back to cranking out tunes solid again soon. Songs like this remind me why you were in the old audio box player... It's good stuff.
BTW: What audio program do you use.. I've heard FL, but you definitely get away from a sound that is easily traceable to one of the main programs.. I'd like to see one of your song files sometime.. I imagine I'd be able to learn a lot.. even though this isn't really my genre. lol
Oh by the way...I saw your picture and you're fucking hot. 9/10 and 5/5 Peace.
hahaha. This thing destroyed my ear drums, dude, lol. I had headphones on and it totally pwned my ears. After the initial shock and some lowering of the volume I gave it a second go since it didn't sound like it sounded bad when I tossed my headphones off my ears.
You have a real interesting song here by the way. It doesn't quite feel like a demo since it's almost two minutes long but hey :P The song sounds generally pretty good and has a nice ring to it. Also....I hate to say and admit it but having the songs volume so darn loud made the song a bit more distinctive and fun to listen to than most songs. The only thing I would think you would need to work on the song would be to subtract a bit of the main melody and or change it up a bit. The ending was nice though. Not a bad song. I think it's worth about an eight in my books. I'll vote 5 too.
Ouch, sorry! XD
Yeah, huh? Thing is, trance songs typically stretch to somewhere between six and ten minutes long. That makes this a demo. ;D What exactly did you mean concerning the melody, though?
Anyway, thanks for the review and the 5, glad you liked it. :D
Very head banging song you got here. Sounds like the guitars are ripping through something. Sounds like I'm being pummeled by a machine gun of sounds with your drums at times :)
The song , to me, felt like it was on the edge of being simple into having a good amount of differentiating content on it. Just by a teensy bit. I just read now that you also mentioned that on your Author comment so I don't feel alone now. Still sounds really good and kicks some nice ass.
Definitely could use a bit more work but overall I think the song sounds pretty good and fun to listen to. I love Metal Songs :3 . . . I give you an 8 and a 5. Not bad. Later!
You've got a pretty sweet sound going on here. Your piano is excellent and gives this piece a nice bit of refinement without it being too formal. There's a moderness to the song with that nice touch of class to it. Wish I could tell you this is something I could dance too by checking your genre title but I can't dance XP
This song has double pianos right? Double keyboard or something...not sure. Anyway, real bang up job here...missing just a certain something to the song but a really nice tune to listen to. I'm on my 3rd playthrough right now and can't put my finger on what it could use...maybe some bass although it does sound like one of the pianos hits those low notes on occassions.
Great job, peace. Solid 9 here and a 5.
There is a lot of promise in this song. I do feel however some things weren't executed as well as it could have been. The song felt lonely a lot of the way in. There was only that one main instrument used in some parts and it just didn't feel too right. I think that instrument should have had something else really playing with it. There was this sound in the background that sounded a bit weird and interesting though...it was like almost interference or some sound in the background that accidentally was recorded in real time while you were playing and recording the song.
Sorry if I sound a bit incoherant...it's getting late^^
Although, I think this song is decent it could have done a little bit better with some extra work on it. Reading your author comment it seems like you didn't quite put the finishing touches on it, lol. So there is much forgiveness! Anyway, I need some rest soon. Have a great day. PEACE
Yes thank you.. i agree that it could use alot more... but It was only a small project of one night that I did not take any further..
Thank you for the constructive criticism I appreciate it alot!
hope you have a good day aswell :D!!!
Based on a true story, ehh? lol. This track sounds totally pimp is all I can think of. I loved every bit of the song and it was made to be of EPIC PROPORTIONS! The horns, drums and monk-esque vocals in the background really do make this piece feel awesome.
Part of me feels this may be from some big Hollywood movie due to it sounding so professionally written. You really did a great job with seriously *EVERYTHING* I can't explain well enough how awesome this song is. I'm definitely giving you a maximum vote of 5 and maximum review score of 10. I'm also adding this to my favorites and may listen to it later when I need to make something with an epic and seriouslyy dramatic sound to it.
Once again...great freaking job!!! I'm thuroughly impressed with your work. Shine on!
There aren't many Newgrounds submissions that are on this level of QUALITY. There's this unique quality about this song where as I listened to it for a second and a half...I realized how good this song was going to be. You really didn't let me down as I listened further. This is definitely one hard rockin Metal song. Every part seems impeccably polished.
As I listened to this song I thought to myself.....Bill & Tedds excellent adventures LOL. Not sure if you'd approve of that but that's what first came to my mind...I have no idea why :P As I listened further I was almost forced to envision some sort of racing video game (and I don't even play racing games)...Captain FALCON comes to mind hehe. Ok. This song totally rips my anus and makes it bleed with the power and masculinity in it I had to give a great Review for it!!
This song is DEFINITELY worth a 10...if I could make this a 12 I would. There is no doubt in my mind what I will vote on it (5) and wish this song with over 20k hits a good day! Peace out.
