Hey guys! Got another song that me and my friend wrote. I did the guitar work and he programmed the drums and wrote all the keyboard. There's a couple of cool parts that we added in there, like the first solo. Which I wouldn't even know how to explain the genre of that, but we just kind of went with it. Anyways check it out and leave me some feedback on what you think, any kind of suggestions on what I can improve on would be extremely helpful. Thanks!

Also I did vocals on the song but I don't really enjoy them, they are pretty harsh. And if I could of sang the end It would have had a really cool ending to the story but alas I can only do growly stuff

Check that out if you want as well.

Nice arrangement man! Lots of good ideas here...

Snare seems to be crying for some velocity tho...dont be afraid to go 127 on those bad boys especially with how sparse the snares are being played between the kick drums.

The growling is good man XD I enjoyed it also the key's have a quirky feel to it, was that your intention?

What drum emulation are you using? The kick drum sample is a bit too "wide" for this kinda song...good for like big expansive zeppelin stuff but not when its played with this frequency.

JDawg0010,
I went with the non-vocal version (first) since I'm not fond of growling (Grrrrr!).....and then I will of course say it needs some sort of good vocals. Audio quality is good. Guitar playing is appropriately tight. The synths at 3:25 sound kind of funny for a metal song such as this, in my opinion (though they could be cool in a different genre). The rest of the synths fit fine for me. This is interesting at 4:30. I like the lead guitar around 5:50. I like the bass around 6:30. Sounds cool around 7:00. The ending is my favorite part, but I would have done the fade out sooner (gets a bit repetitive). OK, now I will try the vocal version: not bad for growling, but like I said earlier, growling isn't my favorite vocal style, though it does fit the instrumental. Some of the guitar riffs are very cool. Please review my music at this link:

I love the guitar tone. How many guitar tracks did you do? It is really tight but also very full. As for the vocals, I would try using a bit more compression going IN, (2:1 is usually fine, just with a nice threshold to level off any plosives) But really re-tracking vocals for an 8 minute song may not be worth it considering they aren't so bad to begin with.

PS: Just got to the solo as I was typing this, it sounds amazing

The rhythm guitar was just one guitar far left pan and another far right. One track for the lead guitar and another for the harmonies.
