THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Altogether, this isn't a bad song but I found a few things that I think could have been done better.
The intro riff and organ doesn't work for me, it seems the organ was used in the intro simply so it could be used again later in the solo (Which would have had an awesome 80's feel if it wasn't an organ.)
The breakdowns make the song convoluted and hard to listen to at times. It causes a break in the flow of the song that the trem simply doesn't remedy.
When writing drums as a non-drummer, which I assume you are, it becomes easy to negate the real value of what drums can do for your sound. The drums you used here are very predictable, which is an unfortunate as a less "by the book" use of drum samples could have made this song stand out. Are the drum samples a preset? They sound very flat and the snare lacks that lovely "crack" or "snap" that makes metal drums sound so ferocious.
Without vocals I guess it's hard to judge what you were going for with this song but it simply lacks a catchy or almost pop-like hook that would have served as a chorus.
"The Faceless" might be a good band to listen to if you need some inspiration for good metal drums that don't get too out of hand. (I'm talking constant gravity or blast beats) They are also great at keeping a song flowing while utilising breakdowns pretty often.
Good luck!

The organ on this is really awesome, its a nice blend with the rest of the music. But what I think its really lacking is a sense of a musical focal point. Right now the attention is only on the guitar and the riffage for the majority of the song, but the riffs can not carry the song alone. It needs a melody or a lead section of some kind.

Perhaps if the organ had a more active roll the way it does when it comes back into the music at around 1 minute in. I think if that part had come in earlier after we introduce the guitars and lasted for the whole way through the song it would be twice as successful. I also think it would eliminate any feeling of repetitiveness from the guitars because our attention would be focused on the organ instead of the riffs.

Also, in my opinion as far as the EQ goes its got plenty of bass and would be drowning in it if it had any more and I think its just fine where it is.

Starts off strong, but the riffs are really repetitive and frankly I feel like it goes a little too fast. There's not enough organ in it, and it feels like that's mainly because the organ wouldn't have sounded right if it were trying to keep up with the guitar.

Anyway, going back to what I said earlier, I feel like the riffs just play one after the other without much coherence (one riff, two riff, three riff, four, five riff, six riff, seven riff, more). That, and you could stand to put in some bass too.

This is a pretty epic battle theme I guess. This combination of organ and metal atumatically reminds me of DevilMayCry an The Darkness.
Very nice , good job.
