Ok, so I'm now going back to doing some thrash, and I'm looking for any feedback you may have- positive, negative, whatever! it will all be useful. Im mainly looking for input on the ideas, i already know the sound quality could be better...

I loved the begining, it was an awesome intro, the rest is ok, I wasent to fond of your electric tone, needs to be mixed better, but the guitar playing was good. I think you had some reverb going, which prolly made it sound like you where recording in a hallway.
But the rythem was a bit chuggy, mabey do some strumming of the power chords when you go into a chours, with some palm muting to break it up, then do the chugging in the verse and bridge. I like your lead tone, very shread sounding. Its a good start, thats for sure.

Check out my song?

youre right about the reverb, i basically used my lead tone for the rhythm and less echo would be better. thanks for the heads up.

I agree with alot of what ethan has said, its a good start but this song really needs drums to tidy it all up because it seemed all broken up when you changed riffs, theres quite a few good drum machines floating round on the interwebs. Wasnt a fan of the tone, needs a bit more bass in it and get rid of the echo, but like you said you used the lead tone for the rhythm. A tiny bit of reverb doesnt hurt though, its a good alternative, i find, to completely turning up gain.

Good song though

I really liked the intro, but when the electric came in, it didn't really have the same quality or oompf the acoustic did. Maybe work the eq ing a bit. but it was a pretty good metal song man!
I would have liked maybe a harmonizing part or something with the main riff here and there, i think it would have given the song a little more "flavor". Also I was diggin some of the solo runs, maybe expand on them a bit. Over all i liked it, just needs a bit of tightening up. cheers!

Hey !

I also like the intro, it really sounded cool and a little bit "exotic".

The main riff was pretty cool, if i was a drummer i would start drumming just after the first time you play it, that would be cool.

The others riffs were ok, i think with a whole band it would sound good

You should try to program drums and basses on your songs.

C4C ?

hey guys thanks for all the crits so far! i should specify though, i know it needs drums and bass to really work, but in terms of riffs and ideas, do you think it would work with a whole band?
