jajajaja, it was a funny listen
there are cool parts
I could not say I'm a fan of the song, but I could actually listen to it from the beggining to the end of it and actually have a good time. The song sure was not a headache.

Congrats, you got me out a good rating (good coming from me)

Good luck

This is really a clusterfuck of metal riffs. And if the riffs were good, it might be a really cool, if sporadic song.

But the fact is, the riffs are generally very bad, and there are some parts where the bass clashes so much with the guitar it's painful. It's meant to be melodic and it comes out pretty badly...

I can barely rate this as a song, it's just a collection of riffs, some decent, some horrible, some just comically weird.

The first riff for example is a horrible 5/4 riff, it just flows horribly.

The only riff I can say I honestly liked was the riff at bar 24, reminded me a bit of death, until the solo starts, then it just got bad.

That's 2 stars from me... next time, try to write an actual song please?

The main problem with this for me is the bass. Why on earth did you have those bass chords??? Then there is the lead guitar being aimless, and while all this is going on, the rhythm guitar is simply churning out riff after riff meaninglessly...

Sorry to say, but it really isn't that great to listen to... Please, try to make a connection between these ideas in the future - and if you find they don't fit, leave them out, for the love of god.

2 stars.

Definitely is a mixture of anything come to mind. There are some interesting riffs in there that would sound good in a more serious song, but there is also a lot of riffs that don’t sound good with the back up instruments (often clashing). This song reminded me mostly of black metal, which if this wasn’t a mixture of ideas, it could possibly pass off as a decent black metal song.

2.5/5*

Since this song didn't have markers, it was difficult to see what the structure was if any, and be able to comment on each of the sections. However, I liked the intro, which seemed to set the song up for something good coming. But I was disappointed as it didn't give much afterwards for me. At bar 40, it went mad at 180bpm; then 160, then 200; I couldn't keep up with it. Really, the change of tempos spoiled the song. I didn't get a feel for a structure, a hook, etc. The best bit was the outro.

like someone already said, this seems like a random collection of metal riffs thrown together without much though. It doesn't flow very well, and structure... well it didn't feel that good. It felt like most of the riffs were both randomly placed and randomly written. Like blackiel said, be careful with tempochanges and do NOT overuse them. I'll add that this kinda music really isn't my cup of tea, so I won't really be able to tell a good song from a less good song in this genre, but as a composer I'd say this song shows some lack of making the tune flow nicely and structuring. the bass playing powerchords is rarely a good idea..

I agre with Jazz. I cant really say much more than he did. And I completely disagree with stockle, this is a headache... Still, I can, with a little effort, think if this as a song, not a very song, but a song after all. There’s no flow at all, but all the “riffs” do have something in common, not sure what it is... Try harder next time (A lot harder)

God damned, no markers Dx.

Ok, first part it's Ok, crazy riff, some weird harmonies but it's fine, you handled nice those 5/4 bars, transition to 4/4 was great too, it flew smoothly. I can imagine a huge moshpit from bar 9, nice blast beats. Bar 18 sounded off, but you manged to make a variation on the what-I-supose-as-an-Intro and put it in 4/4. The riff from bar 27 was great and then the solo did the job, eventhough there were some weird notes that didn't sounded nice for me, but anyway they fit with the weird harmony of the rest of the song. The parts I mentioned were the best ones, then your song becomes into a mass of riffs and it's hard for me to recognize the effort you put on those parts, cause there's no leading track, there's no melody and I'm not a metalhead, so... sorry.

Well... it was okay. I liked the intro but as soon as bar 5 hit i cringed a little. It sounded like you weren't sure of key you were in. Bar 9, all the rhythm sounded good but tremolo going on could of had a better choice notes. Bars 19 to 26 just didn't sound together and in tune with each other.

But the next phase was nice and I enjoyed it. The solo was going good till measure 35 then it started falling apart. Measure 40 sounded chaotic but not to bad. Measure 47 to 69 sounds like a bunch fast paced rhythms with little or no definition to them. The ending was okay nothing special.

Ok this song is not that good to me. The 5/4 in the beginning sounds odd both rhythmically and harmonically. The song continues in a riff salad of bad quality. The song is largely harmonically horrible with the exception of a few bars here and there. Song has no structure. At times notes clash in horrible disharmonies. The bass plays power chords and dissonant notes that clash with the guitar. Etc...

Really I’m sorry but I don’t know where to start with this song. First of all I guess you should try to make nice sounding riffs in 4/4 before trying out odd time signatures. Also try to write a song that works with a “normal” song structure before trying to write a song with no or few repeating parts.

One thing I did like though was the drums. They were nice and helped the song keep its intensity.

Lol. Black metal riff. Lol. (that was at “riff two”, so to say)

Black metal lolling aside... this song is a hell of a mess. No flow to be found here, none whatsoever, it's very disjointed and all over the place in a bad way. Constant tempo changes don't help either, you know? Instrument-wise, bass is the main offender – clashes with guitars, badly. Plus, a bass doesn't usually do fifths, it focuses on one note. You can hear why... in your very own song. It just sounds bad. However, guitars have their share of the crime too. The solo @bar 31 starts bad. It gets worse. It makes me want to find you and feed you the solo, printed from guitar pro. So you can taste how wonderful you make your listeners' ears feel with accidental, insane earkilling.

It's not all bad, you have some potential... nobody can deny the metal insanity, and bars 84-87 were actually okay! The harmonized guitars floating on top of the riff were darn neat. Kindly try on. You do have the metal fierceness, now do something with it :P

How should I put this. Well, I sort of liked some riffs here and there, 3-4 different one perhaps.
Take almost each and every riff, cut and paste into a new song, and you've got plenty of songs,
not just a riff-salad. The structure seems to be close to nothing, but when I listen, I think I hear
some attempts. The bass was really bad from time to time. I just do the list and elaborate a bit
more in there.

- originality: Well, it is original allright, but maybe not in a good way.
- composition technique: No
- rhythm: Mostly good druming, not over the top, but still good!
- appropriate key signature: No.
- song structure: Close to zero.
- quality of notation/tablature: I think you need to work on this, nothing really akward,
but it could be better.
- orchestration: This is mostly awful, the bass is wrong, and the guitar seems to collide. A plus for
the drums.
- use and respect of musical language: Not much, The 5/4-intro riff seems like it would've been
better to do another way, for example. The disharmonics spoils abit too.
- use and quality of
Melody = Mish-mash.
Hooks = No hooks
Solos = Some good parts, some bad
Riffs = 30/70 good/bad. The good ones almost drowns in the bad ones though.
- mix of instruments and panning: This is not a problem in this song, as I find it appropriate.
- general use of the GP software: No markers.

I think you've got potential, so don't give up, but try to listen to your songs and make them flow
more like a "real" song.
