I drew it a long time ago, but I edited it to make the bra transparent, and added the G.

Listening to it now.

EDIT: I can't say I was really ever a fan of the original My Soul, Your Beats, but your cover is damn good Strat.

I just got through mystline and it's all really good so far! I especially liked the rendition of sorairo days. Good work guys!

Edit: On top of that it seems stratkat has made me enjoy two openings I could hardly stand.

Oh god Thorb

Your Lilium cover is really very good and I can easily tell what it's supposed to be, but I just never expected that song to be played like that. But it is seriously great, man.

It was actually the first chiptune thing I've ever done. I'd like to delve into the genre more. There's just something very intriguing about working within such extreme limits.

I agree, my experiments with chiptune like music always end prematurely. I can never seem to find something I'm happy with.

But you pulled it off well. It helps that I liked the song beforehand as well.

Edit: The opening to the higurashi track really sets the mood for the piece as a whole and brings back some gruesome memories.

I consider it to be an anime myself
#19
Yeah, agreed, I'd rather not argue about that.

Anyway, regardless of if it is an anime or not, this album desperately needed submissions. (Even if my track is only a minute or so long. >_>

(Reviewed while listening to album)

1. My Soul, Your Beats! Remix (Angel Beats!) - stratkat
meh

2. Katayoku No Tori (Umineko) - TheReverend724
Damn man, that flute sound is pretty, I'm almost jealous of some of the fancy drumwork you do in your songs:]

3. Pokemon Theme - stratkat
You ruined it.

4. Lilium (Elfen Lied) - thorbor
while the verse isn't as recognizable as I'd like, it's still good, and the rest of it is awesome. (what I'd call the chorus and bridge.)

5. Sorairo Days (Gurren Lagann) - Holy Katana
Haha, like it a lot, chiptunes always make me nostalgic.

6. Mystline (Samurai Champloo) - pbiggie
nice job on it, it's good, but a tad boring since it's bg music, and I don't like much stuff with acoustic guitars. Some parts are particularly pretty sounding:3

7. Someone Else (Working!!) - Shredoftheday
Dude, you put a lot of...wah? on teh vocals?
I like the original better tbh>>
the guitar playing wasn't bad, but it's nothing like the version I've heard.


8. Hare Hare Yukai (Suzumiya Haruhi) - stratkat
gay

9. Battlecry (Samurai Champloo) - GuitarGod_92, TheReverend724
Song to listen to while high, was first thing that popped in my head, as soon as I heard the kick.
Awesome cover guysx]


10. Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni (feat. Holy Katana) - TheReverend724, Holy Katana
Just ****ing cool, so cool, ****. This could be my favorite thing off the album. More fx would've been filling though:/ specially since without 'em, it's like a four minute loop.

11. Real Folk Blues (Cowboy Bebop) - cyco_bob56
The low notes stood out way to much, the quality wasn't best, but I know it can't be helped, a little bit of roughness wouldn't have hurt the song. It's good, singing and playing, just wish the quality was a little better.


12. Nomad Songs (Avatar The Last Airbender) - Jon777
Avatar isn't anime. Looking past that though, the songs sounded well done, i've never heard the originals though.

Put this shit on my Ipod to listen to it again later.

Yeah, my job, other than doing all the sound design and mixing (which are my favorite things to do, anyway), was to put in some more samples and FX in the track. I unfortunately failed. I'm glad you like it, though.

If you want to hear what sort of sound I was originally envisioning, listen to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIhZYEZcnEU

Okay so now that this one is done. When's the second album's production starting?!

I think this was pretty good all things considered, but more cooperation among the members and an even more pushed back deadline might've improved the overall quality. Who knows?

I love the rendition of "the real folk blues" to death. If the quality was just a tad better I'd probably blast it constantly.

Downloaded, this is pretty awesome stuff, even if the only song I know is the pokemon theme song. Regardless, good work guys and I've put a link to this thread in mine, for future reference

Shred's track still confuses me. Yet I'm strangely aroused.

I just did it as a bit of a joke, so hopefully you'll get some laughs out of it.
Hopefully if we do another album next year I'll plan ahead and do a more serious cover.

EDIT: also I'ma little busy with the label, and with making original music for an anime styled flash series, but I'll totally be up for another album.

I call Baka go Home.

why do I feel like I'm the only one who actually put serious effort into this?

anyway, if there's a second album, I'll get my new band going to jam over some anime song

I really expected more actual recordings and metal version in this.

Downloading now. Take note that some of these songs I haven't heard beforehand.

Yeah I wish the quality on mine sounded better too but all I had was WavePad Sound Editor and a Guitar Hero mike, which I had to hang from the ceiling fan in my room since my brother took it's mike stand, plugged directly into the comp.

Technically speaking, you have to put more work into an electronic track, since you have to make the sounds, too, in addition to arranging, mixing, and mastering. That is, unless you suck and can't program synths, and then you're up shit creek as it is.

Also, plugging notes into a sequencer is pretty painstaking stuff compared to just hitting the record button and playing your guitar. Again, it doesn't require as much technical ability, but it requires more time and patience.

Me for sure. I'll actually be able to finish my Detroit Metal city cover and submit something decent. (Nomad Songs was okay I guess, but it didn't take much effort to do.)
