I decided to make one last song for my album, it's an instrumental that I am proud of! PLEASE check out my new songs. Clearing the Sky, simple sight, and Hank's Return, is OLD CRAP! :) Enjoy and leave reviews!
The rhythm that starts off relatively quickly goes in and out of phase, with a hard hit and a phase out following it. Your drums got walked all over and it's hard to hear them due to what you did with the other instrumentation and effects. This suggests major mix down issues, or you did it on purpose. Either way it is not pleasant on the ear to have this effect go on for the entire song. It feels like I have fluid in my ear or something. The melody and bass line were slow to change and at times felt a tad generic. I felt like the beat was really cool and used some unique sounds to achieve the final result. Your effects used towards the end of the song alter the perception of your tempo and BPM of the melody so bad that it feels like inharmonic, cluttered, dissonance. My ears felt strange after all that phasing and compression. I feel like the song would have been much more easy to listen to without it. Without said effects I felt this would have a higher rating. Overall I give this a 6.8
hahaha.. I do like that part :P.. And I do liek the chaotic feeling of this song - this would be a nuts level in the game.. thus I think it'd work pretty well.. and yeah that intro would be great for consistant outputting of notes..
Clarity is a bit muddy though so I will have to dock you points for that...
+Really good strong introduction that really doesn't let up. (Good thing)
-Beat stays relatively the same throughout (True Face had a similar feature)
+The bassline was really the driving force behind this song, but it had some other instruments to break that up.
+You ended the song in a way that I think players would enjoy.
