Hey guys, this is my first real attempt at a metal song and its influenced by my favourite band, Trivium!

Anyway, tell me what you think and what needs improvements please. It has all the tracks except vocals, which I havnt written words for yet.

P.S I know it isnt a shred solo or even close, but I think it goes well.

What you've got to remember is, there's a difference between "inspired by" and "ripoff", no offence intended.

I'll admit it does sound similar but then again influenced would mean you tend to write riffs similarly....

It may be similar to Trivium stuff, but then every single dam emo/indie band today is identical....

And yea, that was a typo lol.

I'm not a Trivium fan but I know what they sound like. Really unoriginal in my opinion. There seems to be a lot of songs like this around. I didn't really like it, it wasn't too bad though. Not my type of music anyway.

It's not bad. It's really generic metalcore though. Add some originality man, spice things up a bit.

Check out some of my songs too!

Hey, i reckon this is pretty damn cool. sure, it has it similarities to trivium (obviously...otherwise you wudnt state you were influenced by them).

Anyway, i was wondering if i cud have the powertab file you have this on? i wud love to try and muck round with it. If you dont want to, that sweet also.

Either way, good effort. How long did it take to write?
