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.

Another interesting song, I really thinked that wasn´t possible this "acoustic" death metal, but at least at MIDI you did a remarkable job. I Like the fact that the song has an history behind, and being mythology, even better ;). The change to electric guitar is very good, but I think that if all the song had just electric guitar, it would´t be anything that a good death metal song. But "The March of Sleipnir" has a solid structure, Good guitar riffs and drums, also with good chord progressions. It´s true that there is some monotony, but beyond that, it´s a very complete song, despite the fact it has no solo on it. 3.5 Stars, Good work.

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.

When you said this song was yer attempt into folk, I was expecting a song with tambourine, ocarina, fiddle and lute, not this xD. But yeah, there's a sense of folk music here anyway.

I have this thought about your music: your songs are cool, you have a good sense of rhythm, harmony, chord progressions, etc, but there's something that your music needs in order to be brilliant and I've seen this in almost every musical piece I've heard from you so far. Your songs need a little variation and I'm not talking about making 300 different sections, I'm talking about the approach you give to each section, "the energy levels" as you mentioned in one of your comments.

I think the whole acoustic part should be a build up for the distortion part. Changing from acvoustic to distortion is a good idea to give a previous section a different sound and feeling, but the thing is that it didn't work quite well here. You shold have done the Beethoven thing here, a couple of upset bars in the beggining for the listener to shut up and pay attention, and then work with the themes in a softer way, adding some stuff each time to finally blast the listener's head with all those crazy riffs and bussy backing tracks. Anyway, I really appreciated when the Gazing Upon Baldr part came in and then the "Hel sets his price" part.

The themes are good, but you didn't put everything in the right way together IMO, anyway, the song is still enjoyable.

Nice attempt. Good song. Varations would be nice but in next comp. This song looks like a complite one. Try changing the distortion guitar in the end of this track
