The first one (School's Sh*t), our drummer wrote the first riff one day at school a few years ago, I decided to steal it recently and re-do the whole song.

Influences include Pantera, Machine Head and Opeth.

The second one I wrote entirely myself and is my latest, I went for a more melodic/accessible tune. Oh yeah, the synth drums at the start sound way better than on the tab.

Our band now has a 30 minute set .


So yeah, I dunno, tell me what you think.

School's Shit : 56-63 is actually pretty awesome. 91-110 is freaking epic.

Anandamide : 62-69 is pretty metal. I don't get the end though... Is it supposed to be so abrupt?

EDIT : HOLY SHIT the 7-string is tuned TWO WHOLE STEPS DOWN WTF? Not even Periphery do that

Hmm, never thought of the end as being abrupt, but now that you mention it I can hear it... perhaps it needs a change.

But it fits the song does it not?

Drop G isn't particularly out there tuning wise. Periphery tend to stay in Drop G# but they have used a low F# on Ragnarok (7 string) and Ji (8 String).
My songs are all located here .
Feel free to drop by and crit a song.
Leave a link and I'll return a crit

School's Shit, liked:

"Change key D" section, reminded me of Cynic (minus the heavy part).
Bar 56 idea.
Bar 105 idea.

Thanks, I've been meaning to listen to Cynic, been hearing a lot about them.
