Your acoustic intro sound pretty sweet. Nice use of effects and chords. A solid way to build some atmosphere.

"Build" seems pretty avarage to me.

Second intro is better, although I don´t like the palm mutings in the beginning of each riff.
PC ain´t very innovative as well, but I think it´s a way that never fails as bridge.

Chorus could have been cool, but I don´t like the chords in the second half. I think playing deeper E and C would have been better. Though it wouldn´t be pretty innovative as well :D

Transition into 2nd verse ain´t good. I like the lead guitar in this one.

I´m pretty confused by your bridge. Is it planed for vocals? Can´t say there´s anything catchy in this part. Instrumentally I can´t see any use in it.

Outro is better again. 115 - 119 are cool.

Globally I think your song lacks vocals. My final ratings will come soon.

I think the intro guitar is really cool, the best part of your song, but I think when the slow drums enters, it loses strength. The staccato keys doesn´t fit for me, but the little guitar solo
fits a lot better. The verse riff is a little bit "strident", maybe more palm mute and some rests are needed. I motivate you to change the F#-A-C# chord in the chorus, it doesn´t hear good at all. I Actually liked the Bridge, but there is no transition to the PC :S
What i didn´t liked at all was the Breaking Down measure, i think is out of place. The outro idea is not bad, but the melodies and the repeated 8th notes I guess didn´t helped.

Maybe the lack of lyrics, as Donkey of Steel noticed, affected your song (I´ll say for bad).
But you have clearly the idea of a song structure, and actually made some good parts on it. Keep it on playing and writing music, ´cause what you´ve missed in this song can only be learned with a lot of practice in both things. By the Way, I really really congratulate for recording your stuff, that´s a really good habit.

It seems that with this song you really made an effort to create something "harmonically correct" and by-the-book. Too bad that while doing this, you ended up creating a somewhat generic and bland tune... I prefer your style when you have the oddity factor in moderate doses, like in Fears Release (still my favourite from you).

Now, the acoustic intro was quite interesting, the use of 12-string gave it a cool sound. But then build kicks in and that chord progression put me off almost instantly. Nice lead though. The verses are ok but drag on a bit, this is probably supposed to have vocals so I don't really know how much of a problem it is.

The chorus was fun, the triplet rhythm gave it a marching band kinda feel. After that, verse 2, nothing new, and the bridge... sounds more like a core-ish breakdown with the intro played on distortion (btw, should be a bit hard to play with that picking pattern without messing up... anyway :P)... could have used "more power". The whole song could, except maybe the chorus. The riffs sound pretty bland and in metal that's not good :/

You went for a really odd harmonising in the 2nd chorus, notice that you have a G minor chord in lead clashing with a G major chord on rhythm in bar 89, for example, fix that will ya? ;) From then on it's basically repeat chorus theme with a few variations, which is fine apart from that harmony issue. The very end had a good chord choice though.

Overall: not bad, but it's lacking in originality and the aforementioned "power", or maybe it was me who didn't feel it. Either way, you have done better before.

Demise Of A Generation - daniel9388

Unfortunately, like others have said, there's a little lack of innovation here.

Intro was one of the better sections. I wasn't a fan of the build at all - just didn't sound that great at all, and the chord progression is tired. The PC was similar, and then the Chorus kicks in. Much better, imo. A sketchy transition to the second verse at the end, though.

Bridge was fine, although a little boring. Like JR said, there is a clash in the second chorus that shouldn't be there. Breaking Down and the Outro were fine, although there was the odd clash every now and then.

So, basically, I found around 2/3rds of your song to be mostly adequate, with a few minor nitpicks. Take that as you will. Try doing something which has a little more attitude, I reckon. It's just a little too bland.

2 stars.

Everything up to the chorus is spot on (even the retarded keyboard in the buildup is cool), the verse has the characteristic "retarded butcher with a gigantic bloody knife looking at you in a strange way" groove that the deli creeps were so good at. anyway, the chorus utterly kills it - destroys the flow and sounds like something my chemical romance would do. on a bad day. from later moments - the way the intro blends with the uber cool verse bass is really nifty and catchy... goddamit why did the chorus have to come back?! >_> gah. and then it just keeps going at me over and over again... go away already >_> leaves with a much lowered end opinion on the song.

I like the idea of putting synth to the track. Basically i don`t like metal tracks, the sounds often bad (i prefer using harp, pianos, jazz guitar etc.). There are good ideas in this song, i understand that it`s stylish. Though i heard many songs that were made that way. The rhytm is so squere. You have potential, you made a good song but nothing shocks me. Maybe trying to rewrite this song to other genre would help finding style that will shock all of us. 1.5 stars

I understand you don't like metal tracks but I feel as is there is some genre discrimination here.
