Sadly, this one didn't make the cut for recording the album, mostly b/c it was written after we'd picked out a tracklist to record.

"Galactic Oppression", our first full length album, drops October 2011!


Gp5/gp4/midi included, c4c as always (please provide link in your post).

Lyrics


 (bar 2)
bestowed gift from the heavens
transforms our world overnight!

population decreasing
enigma inherent system

the edge of epiphany 
final endeavor
sacrificial subjects 
 
promises of freedom
teleportation
lies built on top of lies!


(bar 30)
Momentum and position
are impossible to detect
one or the other 
choose wisely as the next few steps matter

entanglement on the other side 
of the hole staring back at me
 
fear rises sharply as my body dissolves
into nothing 


(bar 59)
entrance to the other side
transposed energy
vision in the place of smell
overwhelming my brain

reassembly done in error
twisted sense of pain
digestive tract hanging out
for all of Science to see!


(bar 80)
xenomorph!
missing limbs!
particles obeying entanglement!

cross bred
through time and space 
dna mixing with other worldly things!

seconds to live
air is poison
cannot breathe
lungs no longer function

slow demise
strange new realm
the pain above all else
a reminder of once being human! 


(bar 112)
cannot move, crippling pain!
Men of Science fascinated:
by my disgusting shame!
sulfer oxide pumped in

Forced to breathe and live on!
Let me just die in peace! 
Every face etched into my fading memory


(bar 128) 
Liars!
betrayed by the men of science!

concentrated gravity to a single point!

portal established in haste! 

step on through to seal your fate! (end by 144)
 
XENOMORPH! 147-148
XENOMORPH! 151-152
XENOMORPH! 155-156
XENOMORPH! 159-160

"Our revenge so everlasting sweet,
Enslave your Children, Behead the weak,
Kill every last Man, Woman and Machine
The cleansing has begun.
Your meek defense is foolish,
we come from the stars a trillion strong."

Intro is very Braindrill-esque, which is possibly good thing. Or not.

Bridge is great, and the synchronized guitars at 26 sounds amazing. I like the physics based lyrics, such as the use of the Heisenberg Uncertainty principle.

At 46, I would change the word "Nothing" into "Infinity", as it rhymes with the last word of the previous verse, and seems to flow better.

The lead doesn't quite fit the flow of the previous material in the song, although it is a turning point for the rest I suppose. That being said, the lead is good. The Aug5addAug9 chords in the next section are interesting, and give a unique sound, although it develops a sort of "Drone".

The bass here is also interesting, although shame on them for using a pick.

That being said, you must have an awesome drummer.

The repeat of the intro section is good and adds some structure to the piece. Pre-Outro is good, but not mindblowing or anything. It just seems to be "Material" to me, which isn't a bad thing and is needed sometimes. The outro is the same way, although its a bit more interesting.

Good song, and its awesome that you're able to record, produce and distribute stuff you write in GP. Thats a large step above the majority of us here.

Crit Consumed in my sig?

Thanks man!

And its not that bad once you have 5 people in on it (in terms of money) and friends in the right places. Writing stuff in GP is easy, learning it afterwards is the shitty part haha, that's why we try our best to write stuff on an actual guitar but in all honesty, I would say 70% of the album we're going to be recording was written in guitar pro first then learnt on guitar after.


"Galactic Oppression", I'll send you a free copy once its mastered (Sep/Oct 2011) just hook me up w/ your email or something.

edit: I clicked on the "consume" link in your sig, however, I cannot find a download/attachment link of the song anywhere in that thread?

It's almost like some of the impossible stuff I write on TabIt, but better construction. I could see this making it to my ipod one day.
