[GP5] Black Magic (Proggy something metal)

So I posted a bit of this song a while back, and I finished it recently. End of story. The chorus needs a rewrite but other than that, I love it.

It just sounds like Lamb of God with a piano in it. I cant really hear anything that would remotely class this is as black metal. What was your inspiration for it?

Have to agree with Epi~, not saying it's bad, but I don't see the black metal of it

When I say black, I don't mean the sound, I mean the styling. The lack of a scale, mainly, is what I'm talking about. Don't take it too seriously guys, I just want some critique

Well, still sounds like LoG with a piano in it. Problem is, your song has scales. Loads of them, they just change mid bar from one slight variation to the next. This is a song without a set scale:



Literaly has nothing that would constitute as a key or scale. Even has bitonality experiments.

Great post-grind funk with a touch of sunburn rock, southern jazz and samba crusty blast beat. A must read for every microwave food connoisseur! 10/10

This has to be one of the best sentences I've ever read.

I like it a lot...maybe work in some more piano parts throughout the song or something. Why does it say the instrument on the drum track is a piano instead of percussion?

Really Cool, if not a tad generic. I would have loved to hear more going on with the piano, and maybe some added synth stuff (pads, leads, etc). I don't know where everyone is getting this 'black metal' thing, the name of the song is Black Magic (not black metal) so maybe that's what's going on. I think its groove/melodeath. Definitely has the lamb of god style verses and hook stuff. And as far as the 'scale' stuff the song just sticks to diminished (d) so yeah

Just sayin, there is a scale. With the exception of a few runs in there, the song is in the D harmonic minor scale.
