Jesus fucking christ. Randomly decided to come check out what was new over here and this is the first thing I hear. Absolutely awesome cover. That dude can really belt out those gutturals with some power. Your playing was all around great, and if I'm not mistaken you were playing the drums right? I recall you were learning them the last time we talked. Mix is sounding good and reminds me of older death metal, though I do wish there was a thicker bass sound to round out the bottom end of the mix. Aside from that an awesome cover, and this one is definitely getting downloaded.
Holy fuck dude! Haven't heard from you in years man, hows it going? This is our second death metal cover, we're working on our 3rd and 4th right now, then hopefully originals. I'm not actually playing drums on this, lol, I'm using Superior 2.0 now though. I hear ya on the bass, I definitely need to put more bottom end on it. Nice to hear from ya again man, don't be a stranger haha, cheers!
This is getting saved and I am going to write some lyrics. Honestly this is one of my favorites from you. Awesome riffs and your mixing has improved since I last time I was kicking around the site. Awesome job man all around. If I was to give any criticism is that I'd like to hear a more defined bass sound. Especially during that ambient bit at around 3:00. Would to awesome to really hear a bass groove going throughout that.
Thanks dude! I've been meaning to go back and boost the bass up a bit but have'nt had too much time. I will do that soon!
I wasn't expecting to see you submit some new shit. Let alone it being a rerecording of my favorite tune from you.
Overall a much clearer sound and I'm really looking forward to hearing it with vocals. Will you be uploading updated versions to NG? Anyway, the only thing I really thought about changing was the cymbals. They are just a bit quiet for my taste. Especially since everything else is so present this time around in the mix. I don't think they need much gain, just a tiny bit.
Glad to see you submitting some new tunes man.
Haha cheers man!!! Yeh its been a while I have to say! Yeh I will be submitting a finished one, this one isn't mixed or anything, just straight as i recorded it, should be done in a few days
I really liked the effect heavy verses, they remind me of Ozzy. Anyway, the song is really well done. It's simple, but it works well for the tune. Your mixing has gotten quite nice. Only thing that I might add is a bit more on the hi-hat and ride during the verses. They sound good, but just straight 8th notes is a bit stale. Maybe add some closed hi-hats along with the open between the 8th notes for some 16th note goodness.
Still, great tune man. HOpe to see some more from you soon.
Hey you dirty shirt fucker. How the hell goes it!? Thanks for the review and visit man! Glad to see you around.
I'm constantly working at improving my drum tracks and that is some good goddamn advice. :) Thanks man. That will help.
I'm not super sold on the chorus either. :( I'll refine this a bit, I'm sure...definitely attack the drums.
Anyways man, glad to hear from you! Thanks for the shit. Hopefully you got my emails a while back. :)
God, I can't stop laughing when I listen to this shit. I sound even worse than I had set out to. I'm quite proud of that. We should do these things more often.
It does sound like you just yanked that first riff from a Slayer tune. Makes me laugh my ass off when I think about it. I think Tom sounds better these days honestly. At least when they play live. Kerry's solos have gotten even shittier though, hahaha. Anyway man, got a kick out of it.
Haha, I have to see Slayer live. Slayer is Slayer. They fucking rule.
Glad you got a kick out of it. Random spider riffs FTW! Go KING!
I'm amazed how much better your clean vocals sound since the last time I was around here frequently. Males it seem like ages have gone by man. It sounds like you've relaxed your throat a lot more than you used to. Gives you a bigger/fuller sound. I'm fucking loving it. Music fit perfectly with the vocals as well. Glad you kept it simple there. And Metaljonus' solo was great.
Ages HAVE gone by! I really have been working on them. Glad its noticed. AND glad to see you, man. Thought you got married and had kids and shit! hahaha.
Thanks for stoppin by and leaving, yet again another 10! Kick ass.
You highs have improved a lot man. They have a lot more power to them now. I think it's because of the vibrato. It really helps, especially since you fucking nailed it throughout the tune. Would love to hear a longer version.
Thank you dude. Glad you dig. Believe it or not, this was a rough draft.
I've really been busting my ass on the cleans. That really helps with the growls as well. I'll have to do something along those lines as well. But yeah, I've got the secret to improvements. If you are still workin on vocal stuff, I'm happy to share. As...you are the dude that pushed my ass...haha. :D
Been too long since I stopped by and checked shit out. This sounds fucking awesome man. Your vocals have really gotten better. Especially you cleans. You sound completely different when you do them. I'm really loving them.
All around the vocals and music fit really well together. Congrats on the tune, and improving your technique. You should have e-mailed me about this you cunt. I work so much I don't remember to get on Newgrounds and look for shit.
Holy puss buckets from hell, the man...the legend returns for a visit!
Fuckin eh, brother. Glad to see you haven't been worked/fucked to the bone. haha.
Glad you like this shit. Maybe you'll start writing again. :D
Damn glad to see ya, boy. Thanks for stoppin by and leaving an ever impossible 10!
Thanks for the inspiration.
The only things I can really think to change wold be with the mixing. The flute/clarinet seemed a bit loud to me. Also maybe a bit more reverb on the master channel to blend everything a bit more. Other than that it's really just finding better sounds. You should google Squidfont Orchestral. I've heard people do amazing things with it. Great job.
I think I had Squidfont once before my computer crashed. I should probably find it again...
Actually, that's good advice. Thanks for your review, dude. :P
EDIT: Since getting Squidfont, this was VERY good advice. I only wish I hadn't lost my .midi file for this piece when my HDD crashed again. :(
