Is this track accessible in any other way than drop box? Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Youtube...

Nice opening which set the tone nicely for the first riff, which was great. The ruff around 0:24 was also good although some of the rests sounded artificial and edited. I may be doing you a disservice but they ought to be smoothed out. The kick drum throughout is quite clicky and could do with some eq'ing. These are fairly minor issues as overall I think it is a good listen and once these issues are sorted and some vocals added it could sound huge.

Cheers for the feedback man

Yeah the clicky kick drum is a bit of a staple in this genre but now I listen back it could probably be a bit less pronounced. As for the verse riff yeah i've edited for tightness, maybe it is a bit artificial though I will try adding a bit of tail back into the parts to give it a more organic feel

I've never heard of risecore before, but if that was it, then holy crap. Blistering and tight. Your tone was perfectly harsh and cutting. The drums did come across as being a little artificial in their sound, but that is minor. Good melodics in the solos, however I felt they were being over powered by the backing riff. What axe are you swinging in this piece?

Please check out my new piece.

Hey man, "Risecore" isn't really a genre more a term given for the particular sound of Metalcore bands on the label Rise Records, they tend to have bands that fit this particular style of sound, they tend to all be produced by Joey Sturgis and/or Kris Crummett

Thanks for the kind words, it's all VST tones actually and I used an LTD MH1000-NT with a Duncan JB in the bridge. As for the drums, that's still my weak point at this stage, i'm still messing around with tones and trying to improve them
