Gimmicks aren't to shy away from.
Really, the combination of that cool effect (tone) that rang at the start and the pitch of your driving synth was like... bad. No analogy.
Trying to use that sound throughout the piece a little more would have seemed like a gimmick, but might have saved it from seeming like Turbo Grafx-16 music. I just couldn't take it seriously.
Here's where I may be made to be an idiot, but was this intended for parody?
Cool concept though, in the rhythm and build of it.
Keep it up.
Know what it means?
Well, screen shots came to mind, so you were successful in that. Still, some of the keys clash slightly, and it makes the piece a little confusing. I'm not really sure what kind of feeling you were going for, and I'm not really sure what this could be used for.
Maybe the looseness is a good thing?
thx i guess.........
The intro didn't really suit the rest of the song. And, I can't tell if I liked the spiffy synths and pads only because of my dislike for the intro. Honestly, all I could really focus on was the abundance of crashes throughout the intro and most of the song.
I appreciate diversity, but, after a while... it sounded like at least three different tracks, unrelated. It wasn't too bad, but very inconsistent, and too many crashes.
Keep up the good work. :)
Then my goal was reached. My goal was to make an intro, that sounded like it didn't fit in there, just because no-one does that =) Originality isn't your strong point I guess. Anyway, the intro sounds like a very cheesy intro from a random clubmix, the "verse" sounds like something ripped out of a pop-song and the "chorus" sounds like a badhairday. You've made your point clear =) Now I'm off to listen 2 your music (I aint gonne be hatefull or sometrhing, I'm just gonne be honest, word). Anyway, thanks for the review man :)
I don't like how the synth pad hits before the beat, but it's a very infectious sound.
Around the middle, when that skippy synth comes in, I become sad that my other synth is gone. I don't like this new synth. Why did Mr. Bass only step in for a moment? Is he shy?
Now, it's getting frantic. This isn't as nice. Bring back the intro! Oh, no! You've abandoned your original concept altogether! I don't recognize any of these sounds now.
What exactly was this track aspiring to become?
The middle transition isn't as smooth as I wanted, and frankly I usually pride myself on smooth transitions. But I barely ever put full effort into things that will be sub'd here anymore because of trolls.
The trasition is decen't, not up to my personal par, but it still works well and the song is going the way I meant it to go afterward.
Things are meant to be a lil sloppy as I introduce many of the sounds that will fill the song... then the transition comes in, sets the mood then it all comes together beautifully as I wanted. This isn't meant to be a big beat/bassy song. Rather something I thought up and was thinking of creating for a long time. Though I havent mastered the program to make my ultimate dream a reality as far as it goes for this song. This was one of my fav and most fun songs to make. After the origional concept of this song was made I found myself in love with making piano synths to carry songs. I might start making some classical/trance hybrids and see how it goes. This is just a taste of such things... this is more trance than classical obviously lol.
Thanks for taking the time to listen and review.
You should feel special...
These are the highest scores I've ever given to an audio submission!
I'm not sure what to say constructively, because it was pretty tight. Perhaps, lengthen?
Keep up the fantastic work! :)
The thing for me about length is that I suualy don't know where to go. My idea takes a sharp turn and I'd rather jsut turn it into a whole new song from the start..But yeah, I lengthen my songs in the future.
It sounds almost like a single 10 second loop as you're working on it... like we're listening to you tinker with it slightly.
What was with the sudden cut in the synth?
Maybe I'm not a fan of ambient music, if that's what this is, but I found it boring. I don't know why it has a "5".
There are some pretty cool sound effects in the background, but I definitely like them more than the music playing in the foreground. I feel like I got a present in the shape of a video game, only to find that it was Sunsoft's "Superman" instead of what I really wanted - true story. Anyway, I'm not saying there isn't potential, just saying (for me) it wasn't met.
Keep it up. :)
The sudden cut in synth was for effect before the next part starts. Sorry it was for you, but hey, no one's forcing you to listen :P
Who's voice is louder?
Not only have you named and described your music in one of the most offensive ways, but you claim to be something of an authority on a genre you clearly aren't. Just because you sample harsh guitars and play at high speeds, does not mean you're heavy. If you want to be, you need to make things shake. The only thing shaking right now is my head. The "F" word does not make you hardcore. You're telling reviewers to grow pubes (which is absolutely the most mature thing you could respond with), meanwhile... being English and twenty-one doesn't make you hot shit.
Constructively, don't use lame titles that offend for shock value. Be creative. Also, find some samples with low frequencies in them! You could really use them.
Heavy metal is not defined by what you've presented. "Total Carnage" is a good start. The rest kind of sucks.
1. I claim to be an authority on a genre I clearly arn't???
I'm not saying that I am the "Boss" of this genre, or that I am better than anyone else who submits music to the metal section, I just upload my music and give it titles that I find funny... When I use harsh language in my titles, it isn't serious, it's a fucking joke that only I seem to get.
2. Just because I play harsh guitars at high speeds, does not make me heavy???
I beg to fucking differ mate. Thats what my style of heavy metal sounds like, and it is VERY heavy if you ask me.
3. Like the other guy, who are you to tell me what heavy metal sounds like. Maybe if your favourite bands were metal bands, I'd listen to what you have to say, but your favourite bands are Basement Jaxx and Eminem, so like the other guy, why are you reviewing a genre you clearly know nothing about?
One more thing, did you give me a bad review because you didn't like the song, or because you didn't like the name.
Go and grow some fucking pubes!!!
At the beginning, I was thinking, "This is like a fight... or something climactic," and then it just kept changing. I wasn't sure what it was. Also, the synths sounded very industrial at the beginning, but some started to sound more natural and like Asian instruments near the middle. It just sort of seemed like you were TRYING to be diverse, and that sucks!
If the music naturally took you in that direction, than I guess it was just meant to be a somewhat confusing piece, otherwise, you should lay off the innovation once the music's already established a certain theme... maybe.
um ok... well it is a fight sorta- its from where cloud is on a motercycle downinmg other motercycles with some weird asian weapon device - which was insanely fun for some odd reason.. Ill concede that this song may be a little rough in spots but it was my first time using Reason fully so there are still things i need to learn.
As for innovation - i was one of the first ppl to do a song from crazy motercycle on this site which spawned countless spinoffs - the first had the original theme so i think i pretty much earned the right to do whatever i want with this song.
I thank you for your review!
It's strange hearing the exact same loops in someone else's song as in one of my own. You may not be using the same program, but you've managed to run across the same samples I have.
This song is a little confusing. It has three or four different themes. You chose to put in some sound effects that (may not have a clear key to them, but) are clashing with the key that most of your guitars play to.
No offense, but I'm not sure why this gets nearly fifty downloads, while none of my tracks have come anywhere close. Maybe I don't know what good music is.
Not my cup of tea exactly...
However, when those drums first came in... WOO! I saw a slo-mo fight sequence in my mind. Crazy shit! Cute dialogue at the beginning, and the tonal change was nice.
That bass though, hm, that bass.
Keep up the good work! :)
thanks ALOT for reviewing, i appreciate it. the vocals add nothing to the song, they were jus there "cause i can"
and know that everyones speakers are different. That bass is loud on a good system (which alot of people like) and its medium on a normal sound system.
maybe you have better bass than most people, but i feel that it didnt overpower anything, and i love bass.... so....
maybe you should review something that IS your cup of tea =P
thanks for the review
