Thrash/ Basic Metal song Idea.

So I'm doing a project at school where I have to write a metal song.

This is my main set of idea so far.

No solos thus far, still haven't finished with the song's structure.


Tell me what you think of what I have so far

Thanks.

The bridge at 145 was better than the rest of the song, but not by much. It's meh.

Well tbf neither Ometh or Epi are happy unless the song is super amazing and they'd rather rewrite it then tell you why it's bad.


Nah that's no fair, Epi's been super helpful in the past. But I sometimes get the hint that he's biased towards certain styles of music that he likes.

But you gotta learn which criticism it useful and which isn't.

Not true, I can take genericness pretty well if the song is solid. The stuff I write is far from amazing but I'm still pretty happy with it. I ****ing love Vomitory, and you can't any step towards progression in their discography. Still pretty fun to listen to, for me at least. So yeah lol. Also I love trolling and pissing off people, so you have to take that into consideration sometimes

It sounds like pretty standard Thrash, which is not so say it's bad, it's just everything but groundbreaking. But since it's not trying to be, I have to say that it pulls it off quite nicely.

The intro, I find somewhat boring, cutting it down to 2 parts would fit better - imo.
Then we go onto the verse riff, which is pretty cool in it's simplicity. It's definitely thrashy, but the drums could use a bit spicing up, a fill or two would probably make it sound more lively.
The chorus is probably my favorite part of the song, especially the first four bars; they sound really nice and could probably build up to some nice vocals there.
The following bridge is pretty meh, in my opinion. It doesn't wow me or anything, it really just glues the parts together, so I guess it's okay. A small lead could do wonders for that and since you said that it's only in an early Beta-Phase, I suppose that might be in the works.
Skipping forward to the Bridge at 145, it reminded me a lot of Metallica's That Was Just Your Life. I like the song but maybe spice it up so that it becomes more of it's own bridge.

Overall, pretty neat. Would not click it away if it had airtime on a stream, bar or w/e.
