So heres something i finished a couple years back, finally decided to record it but i cant find my headphone jack for my toneport, so maybe at the weekend. anyhoo maybe you guys can check out the guitar pro/midi version, and maybe there are some improvements i can make before i get this thing recorded.

I did a quick play through today on camera, 1 take for distortion and 1 for clean, so obviously theres plenty mistakes due to me not playing guitar in a few years. anyhoo have a look at the video to get a bit of an idea of the sound.

Influenced: The Arusha Accord, Between The Buried And Me and Gorod

Not sure about it. I appreciate the tech, but the harmonies dont gel well/dont have much impact. The slower/heavier section just felt random and out of place. Could do with bass too.

Looking at the influences I'm excited.
Definitely reminds me of a slightly less spastic and more melodic Arusha Accord.
Good so far, liked the clean section.
It then takes a very BTBAM turn but it works well, decent riff.
The next clean section is nice and I love the slower heavy riff.
And the intro serves well as the outro.

Recording was also very good considering how you did it.

I would say it's maybe not particularly progressive in style but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

Also here's the GP5 for anyone who wants it.

I'd raise the tempo to 165. Sounds better.

The way you used the time sigs made it very awkward. it didn't flow well when you added the 11/8 just for the sake of having a time sig change.

I did have it at 170, when i wrote it, but as i say i havent been playing guitar in more than 2 years so I was making too many mistakes at that tempo, maybe a bit more practice before i record it and ill bump the tempo up a bit.

And yeah i know the time sig changes make it sound awkward, but I like that in music, and weird transitions to unexpected out of place riffs. I know its not to everyones taste so I take your opinions.
I agree with you on the time sig changes as an avid Arusha Accord fan. I could definitely see the influence.

I loved the clean sections but in the first the drums didn't sit right with me. They felt too awkwardly placed. I have to agree with Epi about the harmonies though. I think it might just be the overuse of them that detracts from them. Or you could try some more exotic harmonies to spice it up.

Yes a nice bass would do this wonders. You could even take influence from arusha more by using a slap bass.

I also liked it more at 165bpm.

Apart from that I loved it man.
