Alien Salamanders From The Sky Reign in Fury (Original Song, C4C)
 
This is a song that basically came together from a very small improv over a sitar line, and i built it around that. Its kind of odd, its basically my tribute to vai. Id love to hear what u guys think! (also, i do my idea of a reverse bass drop around the minute point haha id love to know what u guys think of that too)

Saw the title.

"I gotta hear this shit."

Did not disappoint.

It's not bad, but it doesn't really seem to 'go' anywhere if you know what I mean. Reading your description of it on Soundcloud shows that you intend it to just be an album intro, which I believe this track is perfect for. Very energetic and very nicely put together, but I think you'd have a lot of trouble turning it into something longer (though you evidently don't intend to).

Steve Vai fan by any chance? :p:

There are some cool ideas and licks, but honestly it's a bit of a mess (but hey, maybe that's what you were going for.) This could partly be the production (maybe pan the guitars around a bit more, they're quite dry sounding too), but if it were me I'd take some stuff out and simplify it a bit. There's nothing to grab onto.

Nice transition around half way, maybe expand on that a bit more. It fills out the space and sounds pretty lush, the rest of the track is quite abrasive in comparison.

Anyway, keep experimenting, recording, refining. :cheers:

The last time it "reigned" salamanders from the sky it beat the hell out of my truck!

Very frenetic - almost TOO frenetic. As an album intro it might work.

Drums are a bit buried - guitars are overpowering them.

Needs some tweak in the mix and some simplification, maybe.

Like the ending riff.

Keep working!

I would appreciate a drive by of my schtuff!

Thanks for the crit everybody, i agree it sounds a bit of a mess, this was just something i built up from a few pieces. the whole idea came slightly after i started recording and messing with it. I just wanted to make something completely crazy, and SUPER frenetic. Kinda like the title haha.

I have to admit right off the bat I HATE Vai with a white burning passion that eclipses all human life. Now that I have that off my chest here is my crit. I really like the intro you build nicely into the lead guitar. The tone of the sitar and lead work is superb. Like others have pointed out it its a little "messy" But if that's what you were going for then you achieved your goal! Over all I actually dig this. Bet you didn't expect that after my first statement! Anyways; great playing very technical. Keep it up!
