Pretty much exactly what I was expecting from a band called Verb the Noun. It wasn't exactly bad, there were some decent melodies in there, but it wasn't exactly amazing either. The entire thing felt and sounded like one giant cliche. If you're looking to sound like BFMV (or any of the other hardrockcore bands out there) then you've done it to the tee, but that's about all you've done.

Hey man, don't listen to douches like ChemicalFire, there are a lot of people on these forums that get off on trolling.

Anyways, good tune. There were a few pretty anthemic melodies and the drum writing was very good. I would like to hear a version with actual guitars instead of GP6 guitars but hey, I've composed in GP6 so I can relate.

Please point me to where I was trolling? If I wanted to be a standard metal elitist troll I'd say something like

"This is metalcore lol thus it's shit hurhur"

I gave my honest opinion, that this is a song that is solid enough, yet very stereotypical of it's genre. What's unfair about that? That I didn't like it? Do I have to like it in order to comment? Piss off.

It sounds kinda In Flames like to. I would've said that is was closer to Melodic Death metal than metalcore until I heard the breakdown. There some pretty nice melodies in there and its got a good overall sound, It's just a shame that its GP6 and not real instruments, even GP's Realistic Sound Engine isnt as good as the real thing

Thanks for reviews, guys. We will record it with my band, but I don't know when, yet.

I'm siding with Chem. This is kind of run of the mill In Flames worship with a breakdown tacked on. Still, even though the melody at 0:10 is a standard-issue Maiden harmony, it has a bit of a medieval vibe going for it. And the sliding octaves going in different directions at 1:13 is cool, even though it's not something a listener will pick up on immediately and geek out over.

Now that you've got a recording with instruments, could you do bassists everywhere a favor? Put a high-pass filter on your guitar tracks. A high pass at about 150 Hz will make the guitars less boomy, which might make them sound thin by themselves, but in a mix, the bass will take over for them. In metal, we like bass. Bass is good. Bass gives a mix power.

Thanks for hint! I used high-pass filter and gave link for mp3 download to description.

Really? Because it sounds exactly the same as before. Use your ears and adjust the filter until the guitars sound less muddy, and you can hear the bass. Check the mix against your favorite songs, too. If you just put a filter on, and don't change it until it sounds good, you're missing the point completely.

Referencing means comparing it to songs you like. That's how you'll know how much is enough. That and using your ears, and thinking about how your mix sounds, which is something I'm not going to help you with, because it can't be taught. Only learned.
My only advice is to use your ears.
