A *slight* change in style from usual - but still sounds like my signature style, I think.

I loved the mood, it's very well built, nice harmonies and very original chord progression, nice leads as well.

Outro is awesome !

No particular great moment but globally it's consistent and well written.

4.3 stars

The song has a good flow. You easily come from one part to the next and it fits all very well. Also you have a great use of instruments. The Midisound is pretty good as well. So no complaints from the technical side ;)
The only thing that annoys me a bit is the last verse with the triplets in the vocals. I think that was a needless variation. The rest of the song is good. Nothing that stands out but nothing that´s bad eather.
Good work

And so we meet the heaviest Quibokk to date. Another solid entry from you, once again showing us all how to make full use of the instruments available, this time in a slightly more aggressive fashion, but without ever losing the melodic side that's costumary in your tunes. I don't really feel the need to go all specific with this one, it's a great job all around, so I'll just leave some random words.

You certainly took a lot more care with drums and bass in this song than usual, and I have to join the others in complimenting your drumwork, fits perfectly. Your basslines alternate between simple rhythmic patterns and acting more as extra melodies than as a rhythm aid - you're going to need a bass player to give better advice on this, but I think the ideal bassline should combine these two aspects in a more balanced way, focusing on rhythm without losing out on the harmony. But harmony, rather than melody. Usually this is better left for the lead instruments [not strict rule of course]. This is fine, but could be a little better imo. It was a fun idea to boost it with the piano.

You also make some attempts at guitar riffing.. bridge riff was very nice, as I told you before, but for the most part these riffs are nothing worth making a metal song out of, which is perfectly fine, because clearly the emphasis here is not on the riffs, but on the melodies - in this song there's a bunch of them going on at the same time, the pseudo-vocals, the koto (ain't that proggy as hell, koto in a rock band? xDD), the piano, the guitar leads, but they never clash with each other. Anyway, my philosophy for rhythm guitar is similar to that of bass, but with more chords :P

Btw, what kinda singer are you going to get to sing all those high notes? xD

I'm really focusing on technical aspects here, because for the song itself there's nothing I can say - you had something to tell us with this music and you did, and it works perfectly. The only reason this doesn't get my favourite is because Daslaf submitted his... and for some reason his song did something to me that yours didn't, not as much at least. Wish I could explain you but I really can't.
