Hahaha, I guess your deathmetal roods won´t let you go.
I just see some epileptics ´round the campfire playing your song :D
But I like the idea of some "unplugged" deathmetal. But honestly I think your song sound a bit monotonously. The only real change of style is the gazing upon baldr part, which is totally awesome, especially from 73 - 76.
The rest ain´t bad, but I think the parts ain´t different enough to serve as motives.

I think it´s pretty innovative anyway.

The March Of Sleipnir - JazzDeath

Hmmm... not sure what to think of this one, either. I honestly don't feel that the acoustic beginning worked that well, what with it being in the style of death metal. It felt a little monotonous after a while, too. I welcomed the distortion gladly, but that's where I start to wonder. Would the song have been better if the whole thing was in distortion? I really can't judge...

You had some good chord progressions in there though, and the section from 65 to 76 was my favourite. But yeah, I really don't know. There wasn't much to really hold onto, I felt - the whole song just whizzed by. There were some really good ideas used in there - they were just used in a really... fast manner... :P

If you took a few of those ideas, and layered them, and gave the listener time to breath, I reckon you could have a really good song in the making. But, that's not really your style, so it's your choice. I can definitely see something amazing that could be built from that, though.

3 stars.

Hmm.... with all the array of songs at your disposal I wasn't expecting you to submit this one - I remember listening to an unfinished version of it labelled as "brutal acoustic metal".. xD I liked that idea, I still do, but I think you could have done way better on this song.

It just... repeats itself. A lot. Basically there are two motifs, bars 1-4 and 17-20, which are quite good but terribly overused. Playing the same riff on acoustic and then distortion is not really variation... The only part that is considerably different from that is the "gazing upon Baldr", which is probably the most folkish of the whole song. Pretty nice - but then it's back to motif 2 (even if disguised in a cleaner fashion)... yeah, you get the point.

There's nothing I can say in terms of orchestration and technical aspects in general, it's you for god's sakes, but even if there are nice ideas in this, there's too little of them too many times.
