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)
As always Ill C4C!
Thanks a lot,
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.
I would appreciate a drive by of my schtuff!
Muchos gracias, me amigo!
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!
Thanks a lot man I C4C'd
