!..!, (o.O) ,!..!
Glad you chose the long sung chorus, 'twas me favorite.
Haven't checked into NG for a while, but I'm glad I did.
Glad you're making such good progress on your album!!
Thanks dude!! Glad you dig it, bro. \m/
The only thing i understood was corpsegrinder in the cha-cha part. Watched the youtube video, you guys seem to have a lot of time on your hands!
Eventhough i couldn't understand the lyrics, it was extremely fun to watch :D
Hah thanks man ;D I actually thought of you when I layed the first vocals due to the actual heavyness :P Thanks alot , glad you appriciate it ;D
... a march!
Some pretty interesting concepts in there...
Loved the piano solo in the end, that was pretty psycho.
The only thing that bugs me a little is the dynamics of the percussion and the piano..
The percussion has this typical "machine gun" sound..
Meh... so much for my attempt to review a classical song...
I can really see people smashing into ground when I hear this :D
Straight, in your face metal.
Very bassy, as you've said. Can't wait to finally get my bass, I can't wait to jam some real bass on my tracks...
Your song is a fucking earworm... I listened to it a couple of days back, forgot to write a review.. was humming it since then and couldn't fucking figure out where it came from... Glad I found it again :D
I'm just going to answer your question straight forward: I like chorus 2 more.
The melody is nice and simple, whilst the guitars go wild. If the guitars go nuts, the vocals must stay stretched and simple... Plus i really like the melody... As I've said, that chorus has been in my head for like 5 days... I almost fucking implemented it into one of my songs, since I didn't know where it came from.. Sort of figured I came up with it myself LOL
Since this is a rough mix, won't say too much about the rest.
Kick ass song, sounds awesome.
The drums need a lot of work, programming wise... I'd let the bassdrum follow the guitar rhythm a lot more.MMmm... I have some sick ideas.
Awesome track man. I'd love to hear your album, once it comes out... Can't wait.
You putting it up for sale somewhere?
You need a BADMAN website. :D
4.27 / 5.00 (+ 0.0094)
Thanks man. I think I favor that one too. Excellent. I haven't even been able to move forward on the album without making a decision on this one. haha.
As for the drums, believe it or not, I've already busted my ass going out of my norm, trying to make them as complex as I can. (I hate programming) However, half way through the construction of the song, I changed up the verse rhythm slightly, and have rectified the drums for the final version. Which will be available on the C.D. for $10000 . No. hahaha. I will upload my home produced version to NG for free. The C.D. will have all the tracks mixed and mastered in a studio. :D
Thanks for stoppin by and leaving your thoughts dude.\m/
Fucking. HAHHA.. HAHA
"I am a fucking robot... """
REAL Band... NICE. hehe
First of all: The end is fucking awesome. I especially like the part at 2:05 with the overlapping grinds/screams... Love it.
Did you quad-record the guitars? The guitar sound in itself is awesome, it's just missing a little depth... A little reverb perhaps, or said quad recording... I got the chance to see some Meshuggah recordings, they use fucking 6 tracks for one guitar... How long does it take to fucking record an album?!?! hehe
The vocals have a little too much reverb for my taste. I think they would blend in with the mix far better if you take it down a notch. They seem to stand alone in the room at some parts. Impulses of small studio rooms work wonders!
Although i really like the DFH sound, i think if you'd like to sound pro, you'd have to get your own samples or different ones. The average listener won't notice, but everyone with a guitar seems to have DFH nowadays... But it's not a bad thing! The drums on this track are well mixed, the snare could be turned up a little, though...
The part at 2:26 could come in with a lot more BAM if you automate the volume beforehand, so that it soothes down and then comes up suddenly... Err.. hope you know what I mean, haven't written anything in English for a while!
Volumes and levels are good, except for the things I mentioned...
Mmm.. One more thing; The master is too compressed and/or limited. That's maybe also why the part at 2:26 doesn't come in with a bang... The velocities of the entire piece suffer if you turn up the sound... But I think you know that better than I do probably :D
On Second thought, nevermind. Just about every modern metal band compresses their songs to shit. Must be great to be a modern metal studio engineer... TURN THAT BITCH UP!
Awesome song, Mixing close to perfection, mastering close to awesome. How many times can I say awesome in one review.. I think I broke my record :-)
Anyway, those were my thoughts after listening to the song for 30 minutes... haha
I've been gone for a while, too.. Just moved to a new city, taking up studies... Fucking sucks.
Guitar sound: just two tracks, hard left and right. There's some reverb on them, but it's really subtle. I could make it a bit more pronounced without hurting anything, I think; I'm always scared that I'm overdoing it, haha. I also added a slight rise in the high end around 3500Hz on the newest mix, which I haven't updated here yet.
Vocals: most of the reverb is the room we were in while tracking. There's some additional delay and a flanger (both very low in the mix, but it's there), but my living room is very big and has no carpeted surfaces. Awful, I know, but that's the price you pay for cheap recording. XD
Also, in the previous mix, the vocals didn't pop out enough, so they got lost at some parts; I wanted to make sure that didn't happen anymore, so I mixed and effected them differently, to add some dimension.
Drums: I also brought the snare up on the newest mix. And I'm working toward a new drum program, just haven't gotten there yet.
Mastering: believe it or not, the multiband compressor and limiter aren't working very hard at all. The multiband is set so that it compresses the piercing highs of the snare by about 2dB, and just barely compresses the low bass of the kick (about .3dB). That's pretty much it.
The limiter is set so there's about 1.5dB of signal gain, which really isn't much, all things considered. I could probably take out the limiter completely and not hurt anything; I just like having loud, energetic masters. I mix REALLY low (my mixes usually peak around -9dB), so I have to make it up somehow. XD
Thanks a lot for the high-detail, in-depth review. This is what I was looking for, and you delivered with flying colors. I'll keep what you've said in mind, and try to ease up on the vocal and add some depth to the guitar; maybe I can make it work.
Good luck with your studies, man. I wish you all the best.
Alcoholics are drinking all my beers is my favorite part of the song.
You're girlfriend really has a sense for lyrical poetry.
Fucking pengiuns in my bath too, bastards...
I always seem to forget powerful leads in my songs, yours just pwn right through the whole mix/song. I think that's your trademark. Melodic leads that go right to the bone.
Btw. I'm back in action.
3.76 / 5.00 (+ 0.23)
Thanks muchly dude. SUPER glad to hear you are back in action~!! That puts an evil grin on my old face.\m/
Never heard a jazzy version of Mario before. This was actually not just some mindless google:midi for mario ----> import to FL Studio song..
Quite the opposite. Great job.
Love it :D
Thanks alot man!
