This is a song I composed for my band, imagine it with a woody reverbered grim guitar sound, i will actually play it with my neck pickup, i'm using a single coil for my tone.
some influences are Immolation, Incantation, Demigod, Demilich, Baphomet, Grave and bands such as these but i tend not to imitate a specific band sound, I just try to achieve my sound through experimentation. Hope you like it :)

Nice! The bass was a little overpowering on GP6 (because of the tone I think). Very heavy. The solo had some rather interesting note choices that wouldn't really work if this wasn't a death metal song.

hmmm.. the main riff is great, a death/black metal riff, but parts in the guitars sound really not related to anything to the bass, and guitars are overshadowing each others in some parts, i think you should fix it, or maybe it's just in the guitar pro sound.

anyway, i like what i hear genereally, the solo is really great, really nailed it there, but there are some unpleasent sounds for the ear as well.

I have to agree with previous posts that there are parts where the bass overshadows the rest of the song, and, in my mind, there were parts where the blast beats not only got repetitive, but really muddied up the over-all sound. I really enjoyed the listen, tho - aside from the tremolo riff, it sounded very similar to old In Flames, to be honest.

If you're not put off by Post-Hardcore, would you mind checking out my song:

The intro riff was okay, not a big fan, but I did enjoy the one after that. The drums are alright, the bass is a bit boring, I can't really hear it in GP5.

I didn't enjoy the next section starting on bar 9 very much but the bass was better and more interesting.

Some nice riffs you've got in there, very heavy. The solo was okay, a bit generic, but works nevertheless.

Pretty nice song, very dark and heavy. It may not be your style, but if you could give an opinion on my song I would be grateful.
