I'm writing a song based on Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos, with all the spooky atmosphere and crazy build ups.

I feel that this riff isn't as good as the others in the song, but I may be wrong.

Would you like this riff to come crushing after a strong clean guitar build up or not?

If you help me, I'll be happy to crit any song you send me guys.

It would be easier to critique if I had access to the entire song, to see its place relative to other riffs. That said, as it is; its a pretty good riff. I would personally consider breaking up the song into a few sections so as to focus the atmosphere. If the story of Cthulhu there are different bleak atmospheres. You have the underwater city, mass destruction, and a general spacey concept (as its in a sci-fi world). It would be kind of interesting in that sense to make it more "epic."

If you'd ever be interested I would be willing to work some synth sounds into whatever you compose. I have a wide range of synth tones, from symphonic sounds (like violins and orchestra pieces), to timpani's, to "regular" synths like warm pads, sweep pads, and other ambient/sci-fi related synths. I also have EZ Drummer if you'd like drums programmed as well. Most of this interest comes from my own interest in wanting to do something Cthulhu based.
