v2,
'Asleep for Aeons' is what played when I hit the link, so that's what I'm reviewing. Sound quality is quite good per usual. Drums & guitar are rather good. You are probably tired of me saying this, though if you could find a good hard rock singer to collaborate with, that could be a great combination. Perhaps you could recruit someone on the internet. Anyway, the tune sounds plenty good as is. Please review my music at this link:

Sounds pretty good dude, I love the snare and kick, The guitar tones were decent but seemed a bit muddy to me(I guess that's the sludgey genre??), still sounded pretty good. I would prolly take a few db off in the 400hz range in the EQ for the guitars, That might clear things up a bit more. But totally up to you.

I did enjoy it very much though keep it up man!

Check out my newest song http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...d.php?t=1560169 Thanks! \m/

"Asleep for Aeons" is what I listened to.

I really like the flow of the song! The drum tone is amazing, your cymbal needs a bit of humanizing in the riff around 30 seconds in, it starts to sound like it's playing reversed. Your guitar tone fits the sludge sound very well, nicely done.

Really love the contrast in sound between mellow and heavy in the middle section, it's well executed and sounds pretty awesome.

I really really enjoyed that man. It kind of reminded me of a slower, heavier version on a lot of Cyclamen stuff, which is a very good thing! I agree with boratian on the cymbal though - it sounds like your compressor is clamping down a little too hard on the snare beats and doing strange things to the overheads at times. I actually quite liked the guitar tone, it was maybe a bit muddy, but I suppose that's sort of the point of 'sludge' right? Perhaps taking a little look at those low mids and doing some very delicate EQing might help add a bit more clarity without removing that big organic feel the guitars have now.

Nice work man!

C4C? Link to thread

Mine's probably pretty much the exact opposite of yours, and it's not a complete song yet, but it'd be awesome to hear your opinion all the same.

Synth sounds are very well integrated with the guitar to form a pleasing whole.

Guitar sounds great until the section at 3:00 when it's a little fuzzy on the low notes, but that doesn't last too long. Drums mixed a little too high for the quieter sections?

Hooks working well at 4:40, good groove starting up. Good overall mood and vibe. Love the abrupt ending on the guitars - excellent.
