hello . this is a song i wrote and recorded in my pc.
it has crappy drums , not that good tone in the guitar but its a good song nevertheless. i would like to see a crit around here weather its bad or good.
Thank you ..
Soul Reaper 2 is the name of the song.
P.S. IT might sound a little boring to you because there aren't any vocals but hear it and enjoy ..

i liked it.
only the solo is to much modern metal in my opinion. It's like Trivium for instans: good solo's, but with not enough feeling, like slash for instance.

the drums arent that crappy. they sound pretty good actually. the tone is a bit fuzzy, but good riffs either way. it goes into a kind of iron maiden gallop for a while, which sounds cool. the 1st solo is very good technically, but you need to fix ur tone. maybe add a delay too. the part at 2:30 is pretty awesome, i can picture people headbanging to this for sure. 2nd solo is a tad sloppy, but still impressive. for your sake, find some other way to record the solos or filter them somehow because the tone is just aweful man, haha. sorry. it takes away from your skillful playing. overall, great song. nice work on the backing track too!

It's ok! My face broke the fall.

I appreciate it , the solo was the first thing that came into my mind , I didnt work on it , i will try editing this song with better drums , better tone for the guitar and better solo's . Thank you for the advice .

Actually, the second solo fit more then the first i think. Just need to clean it up, but if you improv-ed it good job, definately added some tension to the song. A couple of the riffs reminded me of a Ministry song. Maybe turn down the bass, add more treble to it maybe less gain..or more. The Riffage was good, and it was arranged good, so nice job over all .

Sweet song dude. Killer solos, the second version is much better sounding. good job.

I will try that , thank you . I have already downloaded a beat program with samples and i got a Digitech rp-100 which i think will improve the sound ! I'm working on the same song now and hopefully the results will be satisfying .. thank you bro !

ah i listened to this yesterday but didnt have time to critisize it. I remember it, thats a good thing! very catchy!
fantastic use of drum machine!! i like the fast rhythm and the soloing!
the second solo was quite fast but i didnt like it as much as the first one for some reason.
song overall, lacked a meaningful ending.

nice work! hope my comments were useful

my latest track is here: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?p=6026880#post6026880

thanks in advance

The Drums are midi in this song and I couldnt find a good tone in the guitar , but , as I said I have new gear now and hopefully this song will become even better . the solo was and improv so understand why it wasnt that good thank you for your comments mf ..

sweet dude, reminds me of OLD metallica, and that's saying something. the rhythm guitar that is panned to the right kinda has a bad quality to it, but that just might be my speaker...

very excellent solo. Much better than mine, because you planned yours out

...and because youre a lot better than me too haha

This song is very catchy. Theres something I just love about it. Like other people have said, try and sort out your tone. Other than that the song is awesome. I liked the first solo better. Mainly because it seemed better technically with timeing and everything.

Overall good work!
#22

It took me approximately 3 days to write it and 2 hours to record it , the solo's were improvised as I said before, so there was no feeling in them , BUT , AS I ALSO said before i will try to re-record it with good tone.. thank you for your comment .. I appreciate it .

replying to the crit you gave me... critting as i go:

sweet drum patterns, although midi, i can see where youre taking them... tone could be a little less fuzzy, but not to the point where its annoying i liked the first solo.... lots of breakdowns, good to hear, lots of harmonies and pinch harmonics ehar and there, which i favour a lot myself some notes sound a little ot of tune in the second solo, but otherwise not too bad at all, nice backing riffs ... overall youve got yourself a pretty sweet song, keep up the standard and youll have a nice catalogue
#25
The tone is kind of fuzzy, but the whole song is really tight. And by tight I don't mean "cool", I mean everything flows well, and there's no clipping or feedback. The part at around the 1:50 area is pretty awesome too. I also like the double bass drums before the 2nd solo. I tend to go overboard with the bass drums and let them rip through the whole song. Overall I like it a lot
-I also updated mine with the bass and added a bit.

Well I'm not a fan of such a kind of music but it's really good. The drum sounded a little bit like the guitar pro drumsounds. I think you repeated some parts of the song to often but that's not bad. I really like the guitar soli!! WOW! That kicks every ****ing ass! I admire the people that play such asskicking guitar soli!

The song changes not very often but it's cool to hear your song. I really liked it....well I'm not a metal freak...but hey great job man!

P.S: for how long do you played guitar?
#27
I play guitar for about a year , i didnt have any teachers or smth , i learned by myself . thank you for your comments everybody , i really appreciate it !!

Commenting and listening at the same time, here goes:

- Nice intro, makes me think of Slayer's Season in the Abyss.

- Nice Iron Maiden feel to it, with the galloping riff.

- Good solo at 1:20, not too complicated, just right.

- I like the overall mixing, nothing is too loud or too quiet. Good sound quality also.

- Sweet 2nd solo!! Same concept as the first one, which is pretty cool. Good chops, doesn't sound sloppy.

- Very good overall, you keept it down to earth. I mean it's nothing beyond what you can do, not just some random sloppy wankage. Kept it pretty clean.

2 thumbs up!!! Great song, I like it. Oh and by the way, sry about not commenting right away, had a few delays.

That was insane! It never got repetitive or anything. It just rocked. 9/10

thank you very very much !
