The riffs and leads I hear are pretty good, musically I like the idea, this needs drums and bass, drums you can program, for bass if no money to buy real one you can just use your guitar and pitch shift one octave lower.

Also there are timing issues with the two guitars sometimes, try to record to a click and with very little latency if the interface allows it.

But the riffs and leads are pretty metal and it would be awesome to hear them in a song!

Here, check out my song:

Thanks for the feedback. Totally missing the drums ect, to be honest I haven't really figured out a way to program a drum track yet that wouldn't take hours. I have limited time to practice so I have difficulty taking time from playing guitar for bass, bass, snare, bass, bass snare.......wish I had a drummer. I do have a pitch shifter though so may look at laying down a bass track.

I like your song, some good melody and harmony plus sounds great with a good drum track The only suggestion for it to appeal more to me (and that's just my taste obviously) would for it to be longer, and if I were writing it I would have included a bit of a solo after your cool arpeggio part. I think it to be great metal dude.

If you feel checking out another tune it still has similar issues but have a listen anyhow. https://www.reverbnation.com/mattyg9/song/25223827-thrill-of-the-hunt

I think that idea is great. Actually, I think it would be quite amazing if you added some drums n bass. Drums - ez drummer or superior drummer by toontrack. It takes minutes, not hours

Really like Thrill of the Hunt, would love to hear what that would sound like fully fleshed out. There were a lot of things that kept it interesting, but I think it could work on the progression a bit instead of switching from riff to riff. All in all they are very solid instrumental pieces

And thanks to VStratto Music for the tip with the pitch shifter

Thanks man. You're song has a title that fits great. I like the way that you work on the off beats, it keeps it interesting. My only suggestion would be to work on tightening up the vocals to the rhythm, and maybe some mixing work with the vocals, they sounded a bit overwhelming over the other tracks. Cool work though. Cheers.

About Thrill of the Hunt, pretty much the same I said earlier about adding instruments and timing and I think 1:46 is awesome!

Yeah the pitch shifting thing is easy, you just have to mix/eq it right so it sounds bassy and smooth, I used it in some of my first demos, it's not so bad actually, but I was also sh*t at mixing then and feel pretty ashamed about the results, also had timing issues because I didn't know to use the interface right

If you want to compare bass quick:

The demo (guitar bass) vs Final release (actual bass guitar)

I am always learning though so my mixes are always changing

Anyways good job on Thrill of the Hunt, hope you put in the other instruments, EZdrummer can be very easy to use at first, but you'll have to program drums from 0 when you want more specific things, but once you get some practice doing it, it's easy and awesome, just more time consuming!

Listening to MB01 and dude... this would be so sick with drums and bass. Liking the riffs, doesn't have that stereotypical minor sounding metal riffage. 3asy Days has an old school hard rock feel to it, actually. Easy to digest and not get sick off, coz that clean riff is just candy, pal. Thrill Of The Hunt sounded the most different of them all. Took me a while to figure out the rhythm (still taking a bit) but the riffs still sounds nice! Just duuuuude these tracks would sound killer with drums and bass.. and a consistent tone for both rhythm and leads. You're pretty creative tho, I gotta hand it to you.

Really cool tune dude. Lots of killer riffs. There's some really cool timings that keep the listener's attention. Some great melodic phrasing too in my books. Cheers
