Hey man, always a pleasure to see a new one from you on here! As always the playing is excellent and there are some huge riffs! I particularly like the tremolo picked riffs from around 0:20 onwards. The solo is well composed and executed. Nice job. My only minor gripe is that the drums sound a little thin in places. The programming is great but I thought the snare lacked a bit of bite- not your fault of course, just the programme you are using.

cool one @richo I checked your song and left a comment as well! thanks for the feed back
"Anxiety" begins with a taste of calmness and then breaks into a fidgety and panicked vibe. That's very cool, it _feels_ like an anxious episode. I'm not sure if I heard a bass track here until about 0:50. The rhythm guitar sections arae played pretty tightly. There's a nice balance of velocity and technicality in your lead playing. I dig your vibrato technique using the index finger. I can't ever seem to get enough leverage to pull that off very well :P.

Here are some sections of the track which caught my attention:

0:35 The blastbeats here created a nice build-up to transition into the next section.
0:52 Very articulate phrasing here.
1:20 Awesome lead playing here. The speed picked section looked effortless.
2:17 I felt this riff was A LITTLE generic compared to the other sections of the track.

Could you please check out my track "Depatterning" at https://soundcloud.com/andresjam/andres-depatterning ?

All-in-all, you've got a well-produced, sophisticated song on your hands. I particularly enjoyed the juxtaposition of musical ideas featured throughout; from the brooding half-time intro to a manic Akphaezya-meets-Protest The Hero-esque riff; and metal polka and trem mayhem to a groovy, stadium rock chord progression.
Your main lead was well-phrased throughout, and your steady weave into a major chord at around 1:35 was masterful in its execution. Really nice stuff.

After the onslaught of riffs and frequent changes, it was nice to hear you slip into free time at the ~2:10 mark.

In terms of production, I haven't any criticisms, just as I don't necessarily regarding the composition. My only observation I feel might be of value to you is that during the chord break at :48, there's some room for the bass to move around, if only slightly and occasionally to incorporate some melodic contour in an otherwise harmonically static section. This is a multifunctional approach, as it would open the section up a bit and allow some breathing room, whilst the subtle movements would allude to the upcoming solo. Moreover, upon returning to punching out root notes during the solo section, you've got a seemingly heavier backing to contrast to upper register lead.

Once again, you've got a great thing happening here. Subbed to your channel so I can check out anything new you post.

I've got a song available at the following link. It would be great if you could have a listen and offer some critique; as critical as you can would be great!

thanks for the detailed reply man, checked and commented on yours as well, really enjoyed it!
You got a real talent for this. I love how it starts out then goes into a crazy shit storm. But for me any how my favorite part is when you hit the minor 7th on the C chord around :50. Totally hooked me I've listened to this a few times now. I also really groove the little chromatic lick at 2:10, reminded me of Freidman. I have no negatives on this, nice and heavy with smooth smooth leads. good job keep it up!

thanks man, glad your enjoyed! just left a comment on yours as well, very cool acoustic stuff.
Really good. I've had the riff at 0:50 stuck in my head for a little while. My only complaint is the drums are maybe slightly quiet in places.
