Not much of a polymeter to be honest. It just sounds like every new tab we get here these days, but I can see that you're trying in the song. Lots of tense and release chords, but the outro wasn't really that interesting.

How is it not a poly-meter? I put the cymbals in 4/4 time and made the snare fall on every 3rd beat in the 4/4 and had the guitar parts in 3/4 and it all meets up at the end...

Also you can check out some of the stuff I've posted on here in the past 2 weeks I feel like it's quite different than a lot of the stuff that's posted on here but that is entirely subjective as you must know.

I mean, yeah its a polymeter, its just not a very interesting one. 3/4 over 4/4 is done all the time, across many the many subgenres of progressive music.

Try one that's mind****y, like 13/8 (that's always a groovy one), or maybe have a switch between 5/8, then to 9/8, then back and forth.

hahaha for sure d00d. I was inspired by rational gaze in the sense that they have more than one time signature in their PMs like you just described. I'm gonna fool around with more poly-metric stuff and I'm gonna make a poly-metric punk/hardcore song with D-Beat as the 4/4 backbone.

Well the Meshuggah inspiration was well disguised... As in not evident at all. Sounded like fairly typical post hardcore song.
Not bad by any means, a little boring at times though.
My songs are all located here .
Feel free to drop by and crit a song.
Leave a link and I'll return a crit

haha it was inspired through the use of the poly-meter at the end. What sounded boring to you? I usually try to make songs more interesting by using atypical chord voicings and disjunct melody.

I actually liked most of it, besides the outro. The drumwork is pretty solid throughout. My favorite bars are 11-17. But yeah, the outro was just meh.

Up to bar 13 I was enjoying. I wouldn't call it prog, but it reminded me of Confide, who I really like, the way they like to play riffs with dissonant sounding chords (with 2nd or 7th intervals) that are still diatonic and melodic. But the next riff up until the breakdown I felt was terribly out of place, with the sudden focus on a blues scale. I did really like the polymeter breakdown, regardless of being a typical combination. I like my prog, but being complicated is the last thing I worry about when hearing a breakdown.

C4C?
Just follow the link in my sig and listen to any one of the songs on the album

hahaha I appreciate the feedback I put that part so people can two step to it live haha and I made it slower for the ultra br00tal 2 stepz lol. I want to really write something different in terms of a collective band letting all the pieces speak for themselves collectively I guess. I'm such a pretentious **** sucker haha

I'll return the crit for sure bro.
