This is a strange song... the vocal line does most of the heavy lifting in the transition department... so this feels rather choppy. I included a GP5 MP3 audio export for the hell of it this time...

Tell me what you think.

EDIT: Three complaints in three minutes... wow! It's ok... I just wanted to try something different.

man thats annoying :mad: why dont you just attach it to the thread like everyone else, your probably losing out on a lot of crits :rolleyes:

yea, and when it does work, it downloads very slowly

^^ yeah, if you could please just post a gp/midi file in a zip, it'd be a lot easier for me on my sh*tty computer. I'd be happy to crit it then :peace:

ok it worked.

riff 3 i like

the solo is weird - but if that's how typical death metal solos go, i dunno

I think you like Germany :haha ......just kidding :rolleyes:

I think that if the riff wasn't PM it would sound better...well, thats my opinion.
I like your use of drums....on the other hand the bass may need a different that could harmonice all the piece perfectly (anyway...its deathmetal...bass doesn't matter at all...does it :p: ).

I liked your time signature change...but at times it felt kind of when you expect something to continue with the rythm of the other measures but instead it takes longer time and your notion of time in the piece kind of loses (if you didn't understand a thing I said don't worry...its not that important either :p: )

Wow...the solo is kind of whacko isnt it........and the transition to the next riff

Talking about that riff....that was weird don't know what to say :p:
Riff 6 was the best of all (well...was kind of a solo)....I really liked it and seemed like a rest from the other weirdness of the riffs :p:

Anyway....for deathmetal it seems nice....but I think it would make it a lot better if it had a little more melody to it (I don't know if that is allowed in death metal :confused: ? :p: )

woah that was weird why does my songs not make that sound for guitar :( it sounds like theres a keyboard playing in the background but there isnt :haha

anyhoo, br00tal riffs ;) im writing something like this myself at the moment, i love the first riff but it all pales in comparison to the epic solo :headbang: very nice. and the riff after the solo is just heavy as ****. riff 2 is great but thats the one that has the weird sound as tho its electric like a keyboard or something :confused:

Riff 5 is another perfect one and riff6, i love the lead at the slow down. the guitars are just droning which is cool but what tuning are these things in :haha A standard? oh i see its c :haha

good stuff man


Edit: the point Gonzaw made about thinking the riff willcontinue but doesnt is what i felt with the first riff, it just feels like it gets cut off and repeated again when there should be more to it :confused: i dunno

Like I said in my first post, the vocal line really does all the work in the "flow" department. It carries the melody durring the last section (riff 6) and carries the rhythm durring the entire first section of the song (before riff 5)... I'm not sure how to put that in GP... but I'll try this weekend... any ideas as to HOW to do it would be apretiated. This is DM, so it's not like I can just stick a synth over it... how do you write screaming/growling lyrics into a song in GP?

Excellent piece. Death metal is quickly becoming one of my favorite genres (I still have a soft spot for thrash, though) and this is a prime example why. I especially liked how you didn't just program a blast beat to play over and over on the drums. The guitar and bass work fit together very well, and I didn't think it sounded screwy at all, but that might have something to do with the fat that I'm a huge prog fan. The solo was top notch and all the riffs were very heavy yet they had enough melody in them to keep it interesting. Very well done. Crit my new one? Another slayer rip off, but an origional nonetheless. the curse (

That was great, as well as all of your other songs on here, I feel i'm typing the same comment. :p: My favourite bit was after the solo, it took me by suprise.
